    Live piano version of my earlier piece. My personal favourite of all my stuff.

    "Forgive me, Majesty. I'm a vulgar man. But I assure you, my music is not.“ Mozart

    I think you did a good job in creating a mood of "Metamorphosis" in your latest piece. The metamorphosis happens slowly enough so that one can get used to your melodic and harmonic material and how it changes through time. I would've preferred larger variance in use of register. Some echoes of the opening eb-eb-d-f#-d-f#-g-db-motive (or its transposition,retroversion,inversion etc.) in a high register somewhere later in the piece, would add a nice "cold" touch to your piece. Especially in the end, where you're dwelling in the low register. Also you could add more rhythmic and dynamic variances. Your piece now is pretty much in the mp-mf-range and rhythmically from 8th notes to some half-note fermatas. A sudden burst of faster rhythms, perhaps in F-dynamic would add a nice touch to it. Nevertheless, good job!

    thanks. I can barely hold it together at this point in my playing I agree I should add some more contrast in dynamics or accenting or something, or make certain parts more deliberate, it is a bit too legato. I also feel I haven’t got the pedalling quite right.

    Make it a few minutes longer... it feels too short. Unless it is only the intro to a bigger work... then in that case it would be fine... all depending on how the answer would be to Metamorphosis. :3 I won't tell you what it needs next... since you probably have it planned by now. unless i am the only one who plans their Opus arrangement... ahead of time... :O i have plans for most of the next 15 Op. already... (and some are already formulated in my mind. i just need to write them all down... (and finetune the sounds as they may be slightly different.)

    Anyways... back on topic... Yes, i can hear the metamorphosis which then it feels like there is no answer. Is that the plan on what you are aiming for?

    The title was just for the sound of it. There are just a few changes, but never really metaphorphises into something different . It is only a prelude like pretty much all my stuff, so I never plan to develop it into a full blown work. 2’30” is my self imposed max. it takes a lot of work to actually develop a whole work without extraneous parts, and a lot of patience. Not something to be trifled with.

    I'm wanting to get back to the way I composed in high school/early college. I spent much more time with the pieces instead of pumping them out left and right like a pop artist. I've also narrowed down a list of favorite compositions of mine that I will continue to perform. On this list I kept a few pieces that I busted out in 15 mins, but on the best of those.

    I hope to have something fresh to show this section of the board in the near future.

    :3 after deleting about 500 or so albums worth of music... i ended up being temporarily satisfied then i go back and listen to the ones that survived and find that more may need to be deleted. :O

    but i learned that taking time does effect the song's value.
    going from 1-3 albums per week... down to 6 works in a month. (which is way shorter compared to many of the albums i made in my self titled project...
    :O wait you don't wanna hear this here... :3 i shall do it on another thing.

    I like this one a lot, Phil. After reading your 12 tone thread, it makes much more sense of your music. It does feel complete, but I do wish you would compose longer material.

    I LOVE the syncopation and dissonance mixed in there. Very creative!

    Are you starting to feel more confident about performing?

    Thanks, but no. I had to edit those tracks, or else I would be working on them for hours like I used to with no guarantee. There was one 2' track I worked on for a few days at 2-3 hours each and still couldn't get right.

    I get it. Performing is very important to me, I want to be able to showcase my pieces to a live audience.

    After a nice break, and listening to some Pierre Schaeffer, I decided to experiment a bit processing some sounds (one is a track with rain and thunder with a clip of a Lambourghini engine thrown in the middle), and playing around with my favourite web synth site.

    I'm stopping Beethoven's Eroica for this, it better be a masterpiece!
