    And I'm not completely against atonal bits, just for the record.

    I didn't include a development section previously for my previous octatonic fugue, which I made one this time. The dynamics aren't really distinguishable in the mp3 for some reason.

    Here is an updated version. I think I pushed the tempo too hard before at parts. Also the climax wasn't properly set up.

    Ironed out some wrinkles, and problems with coherence/continuity before (would like to get something off my plate, but just can't over a couple of sessions usually since the ear has to reset itself). Check out the counterpoint.

    I think it's a forward thinking take on the genre.

    This was my first atonal piece, which I just added a section, since it didn't sound final enough at the end previously. The compositional process is dead simple and straightforward for a dodecaphony piece. I selected the tone row specifically to fit the string arrangement to what I felt had a certain arc and balance, and did all the usual transformations, to achieve a certain autonomy at the same time.

    I really enjoyed this one, thanks!

    Here's one of my more tuneful ones updated (maybe 20% pop). I always thought it was originally a lot weaker than its companion piece.



    I improved the voice leading for the fugue a bit, to maintain at least 2 voices without large jumps between bars at all times. Basically with all the same content as the previous version.

    Here is a new piece. I took more time for review, so hopefully it's final with no revisions.

    Feel parts of the flow and some of the densities weren't right before. I feel I got it right now




    I felt I didn't get the ending right before on this one.

    The first one I think has lots of potential, it's really fun, but gets kind of cluttered in notes at parts I think.

    Figmentation is some of the most exciting music I've heard from you, to my ears anyways!

    I thoroughly updated the counterpoint on this one the last 3 days, but kept the same structure. I felt I didn't take explore the major/minor possibilities of the scale at all before. Also the voices weren't that independent, and felt kind of generic.



    This is the last piece I updated with the ABA(prime) structure that I was before too lazy to develop more before return of the A prime, which felt the ending wasn't warranted. This is more obviously inspired by Bartok.

    They sound good, I especially like how the fugue keeps progressing.
