The composer that influenced me the most is definitely Claude Debussy. I compose in an impressionistic style, which means that my pieces evoke imagery and a sense of story when listening, with some unique chords and controlled dissonance.
Some other compositional styles (not all of them, but some general ones):
Baroque - very structured, rule-abiding, very much single note voices, court dances.
Classical - sonata, orchestral pieces, structured and with set phrases, repetition and controlled expression.
Romantic - feeling-evoking, dramatic, freedom of expression, strong and contrasting note choices.
Impressionistic - image-evoking, a flowing and free tone, more dissonance, more chord choices.
Contemporary, modern, post-modern - jazz, blues, rag, that kinda music, lots of dissonance
Popular/good sounding - repetitive chord structure, very easy to listen to
Technical - compose for the purpose of exercising the fingers
I am hosting a competition for any classical composer.
Send me a message containing a link with your piece and in about a Month I will send everybody there score in a message.
Best of luck.
Has anybody written a pretty piano solo arrangement of Michael Buble's "Forever Now"? I love this song - and all of the arrangements I found to purchase on various websites are mostly accompaniment pieces rather then piano solo arrangements
I just realized this group had kind of fallen asleep, if anyone here is still alive, please comment below!
I would like feedback on this piece, it's a very short prelude and I would also like some advice on writing interesting baselines and harmonic progressions. Thank you!
Just arranged Waves of the Danube for a classical guitar ensemble. Let me know what you think of it!
Make sure to check out my other scores too! I have an original composition for a classical guitar ensemble, and an original composition for solo guitar.
Here my arrangement on the Gerudo Valley theme zelda OoT, let me know what you guys think!
