    i think there are quite a few nice parts. My preference to hear them closer together, and cut out the repetitions, which are like moments you are just thinking of what to do next. I think the harmony is more tight than ever before. My suggestion is to condense, regardless of what genre it is, which sounds like a cross between pop and classical to me. I thought the changes were well done. If you can add more it would be even better. It seems to contain folkish tunes which is nice

    Thanks Phil!

    I think it's Pop, Classical and New Age.

    I suppose I could cut out that second "verse" section...

    I think a sweet acoustic guitar rendition of this piece would be great. You mentioning the folk aspect made me think that!

    Try it on some different patches on your electric keyboard. It may work better as ambient music, which generally has less changes.

    That's a good idea, though most of the patches on my keyboard aren't very good. It does have a pretty rockin' harpsichord though!

    haha,

    The harmony has been pretty tight in your last pieces. Try some less obvious chord changes, and stuff, to make it more interesting for the full length.

    Can you explain in more detail what you mean by the harmony being tight? My vague knowledge of the term doesn't leave me with much to take away from that sentiment. What I know of harmony is that it is the way two notes or more notes played simultaneously sound together. I'd appreciate your explanation!

    Thanks

    Also, I've been posting my earlier pieces that I wrote in high school which I feel are much stronger works. The only one which was a newer one in this thread was the "Cosmic Uncle" one, but I took it down thinking it wasn't such an interesting piece.

    as stated on another post or two... i shall (i am not sure if i posted it on Phil's post or not... but i shall watch at somepoint. :3 then grant my critical review. but i am not as mean... so no worries. i will tell you how it is.) (although i have listened to one of Phil's works. and after his explainations of what i didn't realize made a new focus.)

    it may be tomorrow... (well today. when i get to a youtube marathon of composers on this site... sheesh... why is it always youtube? sigh...) or friday.
    *nods, i shall embark on this quest to see how ye all fare in my eyes... err... ears.
    I might even get to some of Billy's symphonies. among others.

    I meant your harmony has been very good, very clear. That’s all. I also suggested you try changing things up more, since you’re already there.

    I wouldn't recommend doing that...
