    Oh that. That line contains my musical signature I put into my orchestral pieces, a loose 4 note motif. I threw in that line to include more individualism and a bit of humour. I already showed to make that dissonance more quiet, but still wanted it to be heard.

    Felt the theme around 0:55 was still too easy going, so I changed the harmony to something more gritty.



    Tweaked and reworked the orchestration in the last part.

    Here is a more abstract study probably for grade 3 level, with overlapping hands, odd time signature, and passive ear training.

    I wish it were less dissonant.

    Here is an updated version. Not nearly enough contrast in the first version.

    I can hear the influence.

    Forgot this piece I updated. In this one I wanted to replicate an original duet of the qin dulcimer and mandolin together on the piano.



    I'm sure you all are sick of hearing this one as I am. But I think I fixed the counterpoint to sound decent here.

    Enjoyed both of them, especially the first one though!

    Varied the left hand rhythm more on this one.



    I felt I didn't explore as much pentatonic sonorities as I could have before on this one. I added a few bars with some different combos. Also varied that return to the beginning in the last part to make it less corny.

    Here is a new piece for piano.



    I feel I got this one right:

    The new piano work has some really interesting sections, it sounds like Picasso in music (in a good way). It also had some parts I didn't like, which I'm sure you'd be able to guess what those are.

    The second one is beautiful!

    Updated version of this, adding a couple of contrasting sections.

    I like this version better, and there are still lots of sections that I find interesting, but there still remain some atonal bits that don't do it for me.
