    I've been hard at work with this, I think it is my best so far. I'd gladly recieve (more) criticisms so I can continue expanding it.

    Concerto for 6 musicians

    You captured an interesting mood. Are you using your own counterpoint rules? I think you should focus more on the voice leading instead. There are parts I feel that are garbled up between voices like between 0:40 to 0:50.

    Yep, same counterpoint rules I used in "broken glass", now I take more care not to clutter the textures too much or I enter another kind of territory.

    So I've expanded it and written some more parts over it. Probably didn't solve any of the rough voice leading problems you find in the piece.

    Chamber Concerto

    For Recorder

    A simple short piece for soprano or tenor recorder. Probably doesn't deserve a YouTube video.

    What kind of scale are you using? Still on your own counterpoint rules? That's some tonguing action at 1:53!

    I composed that by ear mostly, not repeating pitches much unless it's motivic, no tritones.

    I think it's a mistake to avoid the tritone. Right now your piece sounds very diatonic, but at the same time, very shaky and unstable, since it has no tonal centre. And because you avoid the tritone it keeps meandering or shifting about in what becomes a sort of arbitrary way. Even if you don't want the music to sound tonal, you have to establish some kind of backbone. The tritone is perfect for keeping tonal ambiguity, but a certain stability.
