I have something a little different today. I was trying out all of the free synthesisers that come with Mixcraft 8, and this was the result. A fusion of Classical Film Score music, Ambient Electronic music, and Chinese traditional music (hence the Dizi). As I made it mostly in Mixcraft, the score may be slightly inaccurate, but I think it's about right.
Anyway, thanks for listening. I hope you enjoy! Please don't forget to tell me what you think!

There's not really a story to this one. Just imagine being in a huge, open, grand train station, a little bit of steampunk, a little bit of sci-fi, probably somewhere in the far east (hence the Dizi). There aren't many other people there, so it's quite. Everything feels a bit surreal, a bit strange, a bit like in a dream.
And everything echoes.
I'm actually quite proud of this one. It is written for Piano solo, although I'm not 100% sure all of it is entirely possible, so if someone could check that for me, that would be great.
This is my piano reduction, or plan, if you like, of a new epic orchestral piece I am working on. It is the overture to a space opera called "Back from Oblivion," about the second light speed ship to leave our solar system, in order to rescue the crew of the first one, who were kidnapped by an intergalactic empire of aliens.
For people who don't know, a space opera is a sub-genre of science fiction, often breeding it with fantasy. Some famous examples include Star Wars, Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Doctor Who (all four of them are some of my favorite film/TV franchises ever*).
There are a few sections that I'm not too sure about, so advice and opinions would be appreciated.
Thanks for listening!

* - ps Yes I like both Star Wars AND Star Trek. Get over it.
I intend to write three more movements, each one based on one of the books in the trilogy, while this one is inspired by the series as a whole.
Advice is welcome, constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks for listening!

I've changed the time signatures where necessary. I decided to put it in 6/8 rather than 3/4, because in 3/4 the notation looked strange.
This entire piece has multiple contrasting motifs and ideas. Some themes feel like flowing air. Some have a pulse. Others are heavy. Either way, this composition has multiple climax moments that I composed when I was extremely passionate about something (hence the title). I hope you all enjoy it.

Rhapsody No. 5
I used part of "musical style" and I was inspired by Debussy, Messiaen and Mompou (I was listening quite lately, especially).
I had a lot of fun building an arrangement for this beautiful song and I wrote the melodic line as if I played the tenor sax myself as I did for many years .. I hope you enjoy this beautiful song and my music.
Amicalement pour Peet.
J ai pris énormément de plaisir à contruire un arrangement pour cette superbe chanson et j ai écris la ligne mélodique comme si je jouais moi même le saxe ténor comme je l ai fait pendant de nombreuses années.. J espère que cela vous aimerez cette belle chanson et ma musique.
This, with the exception of the final movement, is my first major work that takes after contemporary stylization.

Firstly I'd like to note that the insignia is NOT a pentagram, it is an Elder Sign, and is in fact meant to ward off the Elder Gods and their horrors.
The concept is a long one that I currently don't feel like typing out, but it's basically a show based on C'thulhu Mythos and the call of the Leviathan (or C'thulhu, or really any Elder God with telepathy, that's up to you).
