  3. Today's Composers
    Hi. Some time ago I decided to start writing music, to create something and see what happened. I don't really have composition skills, as I only have a license in solfege. So, pretty basic knowledge of theory. I had a theme in mind though and I tried to develop it, quite casually I admit. It's...

    Not many know, but before dying Jimi Hendrix had in mind two things: - A collab with Miles Davis which never occured because Davis asked too much money. - To create A NEW TYPE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC! Apparently, Jimi Hendrix listened to everything, even a lot of classical music, romantics in...
  5. Music Theory
    Perhaps this question is more suited for the 'Today's composers' subforum but it seems I can't start a thread there, apologies if this is the wrong section for my question. As an amateur musician and rather late admirer of classical music I've wanted to learn more about music theory and...
  6. Music Theory
    hello, hoping this isnt too subjective, but.. in song writing, im wondering if there is like a quick sheet/consensus on how each time signature feels/what it does to a piece? with applications in pop music for instance, having a chorus be 4/4 seems to be a given, since it is the "release"...
  7. Today's Composers
    Hello to everyone, I allow myself sharing with you a composition I've released last week after several years of work. It's quite long and you can listen to each section separately to start with (even though the key lies into the last section, by the organic form of the piece in someway). The...

  12. Today's Composers
    I've just finished my GCSEs and am 2 weeks into summer! To celebrate, I've started composing a new string quartet. This is still a work in progress as I'm only less than half way finished.

    This is my first non-comment post here, so hello. I'd like to share something I wrote several years ago. I recently dusted it off and made minor adjustments for play-ability and instrumentation, but otherwise I've left it unchanged (which I'm sure the me of the past would appreciate). It's a...
  18. Non-Classical Music
    I am interested in learning how to use techniques and paradigms from various non-Western cultures in my own music. I know how to use various scales to make my music sound “exotic”, but I’m looking to deepen my superficial understanding of what makes Hindustani, Middle Eastern, South African...

    If you could choose up to 5 lost/destroyed works by any composer that we KNOW we're written at some point, and you could find/revive them, which would they be? Also knowing if a spurious work is authentic or not is another option. I mean like how we have Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for Winds...

    Hello Take a look at this recently discovered 'Cheat Sheet' by Classic F.M. in the United Kingdom: I have read through it and understand some of it, but I can not work out what the diagram is telling me, or what part of the cheat sheet it is referring to. It is this part: Would someone...
