    Default Hello, My name is Kyler

    Hello Classical Music,

    I create music as a hobby and I'm looking to share with those who may enjoy it. It has taken a while, but I am finally proud of what i've been composing.

    However, what I'm composing is not classical music nor a symphony, however, A Synthany, but I feel as though it may resonate with this community. If you're interested let me know what you like, love, or hate about it. I believe there is a lot to gain in growth from a new and differing perspective. I'm always looking to improve.

    I also like to hear what others are composing!

    [Here is the link to my Synthany Part 1]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqBUxS_1adw[/VIDEO]

    thank you for reading,
    -Kyler Key

    I’m a fan of Wagner, I enjoy most all of the popular classical music that I’ve listened to. The popular songs that Everyone knows, but never knew who composed them. I’m horrible with names but good with remembering melodies.

    Kyler, I like the composition! I don't usually praise something unless I really like it. It seems unified, consistent, and is arranged well. There are harmonic movements buried within it. It seems oriental. Welcome to the chaos!

    Thank you so much for listening. There are many more pieces to come! I’m attempting to create a piece that flows through every single mode while using color theory And emotion. my belief is they are all linked at the core. The end goal is to generate a trifecta of perfect synchronized harmony in color emotion and tone.

    I seek to learn the rules of the universe and then play by them!

    ^^^ah, a young Scriabin.... Do you have synesthesia Kyler?
    It's obviously impossible to transmit precisely what you see and feel onto a listener, but we all need a justification to write in the first place and if the synesthetic reasoning behind your trifecta gets results, that's a good enough justification imv. Mind you, synesthesia folk rarely agree on these things so it's not surprising that the listener would not catch on neither. When I listen to Messiaen, I do not see "A major as blue with a G sharp adding a hint of gold", I just hear beautiful harmony.

    I had a listen btw, not really something I am into these days, but I thought it was well done (production too). I picked up on a folk quality because of its modality. A dance element was there in the riff and syncopation too I thought and I was waiting for the 4 to the floor kik to start up.
    What might have drawn me in more would have been some different colours (sorry, no pun meant) being added as the main synth was omnipresent and unrelenting, but perhaps that was the point.
    Does the singular timbre and feel represent one of your colours? Emotion wise, what did you intend to convey and what colour was associated with it?

    (you might find this article interesting if you are into 20thC classical. The video near the top of the page of a realisation of colour in performance is interesting too.)

    Thanks for listening Mike. I do not see colors per say, I would, however, say I sense them. The only way I can describe it is based on the mode of the song I get an emotion/feeling, and that feeling is associated with a color. The way I see it when you walk into a room Colors convey emotion and the same thing with music, so my objective is to combine these to generate that vibe and feel.

    And I’m really trying to force modal switches and that’s why the synth especially at the top which I admit can be imperious, is so unrelenting; as there’s only a short time and I want to hit it home.

    Before I answer the last part I just want to make sure we are talking about the correct part as part 1 will have a completely different Than part 2 as reason for the color chosen can change.

    I will check out that link. Synesthesia is really interesting and I’m not quite sure I have it, for me color is linked to emotion. And emotion is linked to music. Sound and color are both frequency and wavelengths and I also believe that of emotion and if I can capture emotion I can generate how I feel and share to others who maybe feel the same.

    Have you thought about using automated filter changes or sweeps on some synths to vary timbre (colour)? That might help relieve the monotone and create added interest. It can be subtle or blatant.

    I’ve experimented with this in the past, and it worked. I like the idea, but I’m kinda using this as an experiment to see how modes effect music. That’s why it has the same timbre. My future compositions will have more variance for sure.
