    I do believe it is not traditional harmony, but nothing beyond what was done by other Modern Classical or Jazz composers.

    Phil, for your orchestral piece, I think if you slowed it down, and made it a bit more airy as opposed to the heavy colors you have right now, you could have something brilliant.

    I particularly enjoyed the lapses in between tonality and atonality.

    Even then, your music is still rather conservative when placed alongside other modern works in the style.

    Not to be too harsh because I heard more tolerable pieces from you, but this one doesn't make any sense whatsoever. It's just a bunch of notes thrown out there. Nothing more or less.

    They aren't a bunch of notes at all. If you do some research on Fibonacci, you'd understand.

    Phil composed a piece using a very well known mathmatical sequence, but still made it his own. I never fully understood the point of mathematical pieces until I did my own experiment, and found a great deal of enjoyment out of the process, even if the result isn't my cup of tea. Many out there enjoy hearing the musical result of applying raw mathematics to music.

    So, he made it to turn something meaningful into something meaningless. Bravo!

    You could say the same for just about all less tonal music. Just admit you generally don't like modern Classical or Jazz. Music doesn't need to fit your way of listening

    I actually believe this is really bad piece of music. There's also nothing "modern" about it. Maybe half century ago it would mean something at least to you, but today....

    Check out something I was working on last couple days. I can hear some harmonies that are different from the time, but I think it sort of captures the Rossian spirit.

    Here is a better progress version. The last part could be more consonant.

    It has it's moments, but it lacks fluidity from section to section and the ending feels very abrupt. It also feels all over the place!

    it's not finished yet. I'm just done the first part. It might take a real performance to hold it all together.

    Check out this mini serenade. I think it is my own favourite work of mine along with the Metamorphosis. It was sort of inspired by Shostakovich's Quartet 15.

    Some rhythms/durations were a bit off. I tweaked a few things and made a more substantial reprise.

    Here is a little piano study while I was playing around.
