    Critical Mass was a bit too jumpy for me, but it had sections I liked.
    Quartertonal is cool, I enjoy that one.

    The ones I could listen were all wonderful(some of them were deleted).

    The critical mass reminds me of Schoenberg a lot, did you use 12-tone technique writing it?

    Hey thanks. No, not 12-tone. It is free atonal, but I wonder if it really is that atonal. It was inspired by Leonard Rosenman and Varese. It is my most varied in terms of metre, but I didn't use tuplets.

    Yes, I did hear some tonal aspects when I listened again. But it's still great. Wish I could compose for any instruments other than piano. I'm excited to hear your next piece!

    I'm sure if you put the effort in, you could learn how to express yourself with multiple instruments. Just download one of those programs that are free on the internet and start experimenting!

    I'm content just composing for solo piano, personally.

    'Critical Mass' is pretty much a meaningless mess to my ears, but '3 Part Quartertonal Miniature' is weird, yet brilliant piece. Too bad it is so short, but I must admit that it is very exciting little piece of music to listen to and it makes a lot of sense as idea.

    Here is my latest piece.



    Also here is an updated version of this piece. I added a couple of bars, the middle part did feel a bit too brief to me.

    Not bad, but we, your fans, prefer stuff like 'oriental pentatonic' and 'quartertonal'.
    Thank you.

    I think it starts out strong, but gets a bit repetitive after a while.

    I wouldn't say repetitive, I kept changing things up, with a lot of variation. There was in fact hardly anything repeated. This is my nephew's favourite piece. He doesn't like the dissonant ones, maybe in time.

    I know for a fact that I don't like the Neoromantic piece, but I can't quite figure out why.

    It sounds a little bit... hollow? Romantic pieces usually should have this air of definitive emotion to them, but for some reason this one feels rather empty. Dunno.

    The faux-oriental piece has a lot of rhythmic hiccups.
    Little emebllishments that seem to disrupt the flow of the piece.

    Phil, Critical Mass could do with removing the snare part. A lot of it should be rewritten to try and avoid any concrete sense of time.
    Because a lot of it is free-form, the inclusion of consistent percussion kinda ruins the otherwise interesting parts.

    This piece is heavily influenced by Bartok's Mikrokosmos, as some may hear, where there are different voices and lines interjected. Also this piece obviously.

    The neoromantic study is one of my personal favourites. It is actually a response to my Romanticism as superficial grandstanding thread in the main forum, to have a singing melody and variations and syncopation and stuff more modern rather than exuding emotion. Finally the Critical Mass is heavily influenced by Leonard Roseman where he used some beats and stuff in his Lord of the Rings soundtrack. The snare drum I thought was an interesting counterbalance with the freer stuff, and is used more sparsely. I actually have a program in mind of mad scientists back in the 40's developing the nuclear reaction, and it adds a bit of coldness. The last part is like a countdown with unexpected accident as a result
