Trust me, I enjoy the weird and unusual and original. So Welcome, And have fun!!!!!!
So, I just hit the big 300 mark!
What should I do? I Was thinking of revamping/ finishing the old old old Phantom of the opera string quartet I had done a million years ago Lol
So If you have a suggestion of a piece I should arrange, or an interesting idea for an original, Then feel free to share!
Hey guys! I just joined this new group called "Start Here". https://musescore.com/groups/starthere
It is for beginning and advanced composers and is designed to help them improve their compositions and provide constructive feedback for their pieces. You guys should join!!!
This is probably gonna be way too long...
Here's the piece I'm talking about, it's in concert pitch just for the sake of simplicity.
I got started on it by actually making stuff up on trumpet rather than sitting at a computer like I usually do, so I didn't really have a chord progression in mind when making it. I think I did an Ok job (yeah right) of making one for the first part (The Cm7-Edim-FM7-Em7, Cm7-Edim-EbM7-Dm7 one), but I'm lost after that. There are parts that don't seem like they could go with any chord, and I'm still a bit of a rookie to writing music so I'm not sure what I should make the chords to those parts. My bigger problem with the second part is that I don't want it to just be a bunch of random chords with no sense of direction. There needs to be a progression, right? But it doesn't seem like the melody I wrote is following one. Any help on that front would be MUCH appreciated.
2.) What do I do with this piano?!
I know that the piano should be doing something other than just playing whole note chords the whole time the trumpet is playing, but I can't figure out what it is for the life of me. If I try to make things different in the piano, it doesn't seem to blend well with the trumpet. If I just have whole note chords, the piano part is boring, and also sort of interrupts the trumpet during ties over barlines. I didn't have all that much time to experiment with this today, so I just put it all as whole notes temporarily.
When I was first coming up with the melody, I was playing with a harmon mute. Obviously a real instrument will always sound better than a simulated one, *cough* musescore trombone soundfont *cough* but I think that the sound of the musescore version would be a lot better with a muted trumpet rather than an open one. So, if anyone knows if there is a trumpet w/ harmon mute soundfont on musescore, please let me know.
Alright, thanks in advance!
I made this piece. Just wanted feedback about what I could do to make it better. ( Including the title) Anway, here it is: https://musescore.com/trentdonaldson99gmail/scores/4859183
