USE CUSTOM AUDIO SOURCE!!!

Hi there!
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.

Overture from "Back from Oblivion" - Piano Reduction

1 part4 pages04:255 days ago67 views
Piano
Hi there! I have another piece worthy of sharing for once!
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!

Aurora - Movement 1 (Original Composition)

2 parts10 pages04:383 months ago149 views
Bassoon, Piano
This is a piece I wrote for a Piano and Bassoon duet, inspired by the novel trilogy "His Dark Materials" by Phillip Pullman. My friend and I may do a live recording of this. If we do, I'll update the audio.

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!

Update 11/02/2019
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.

Apex of Aspiration (IMCC) (200 follower special)

Piano
This is a rhapsodic toccata that is both a 20th composition milestone and a 200 follower special. It represents the extent of my piano abilities at the moment this piece is completed.

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.

This is also for the International Musescore Composition Contest, so if you want to join, then here's the link:
https://musescore.com/groups/imcc/discuss/5016987

Thank you for 200 followers; it astonishes me how many people enjoy my compositions. Also, good luck to everyone joining IMCC!

Completed on May 6, 2018.

Keyboard
In this piece, what I tried to do was make an imitation of the sound of a bell, I also played a bit with the dynamics and with the piano ranges. In my opinion, it is an abstract piece (in truth as most ...).
I used part of "musical style" and I was inspired by Debussy, Messiaen and Mompou (I was listening quite lately, especially).

Regards for Peet.
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.

Could not upload this with MS3, had to use MS2 which is why the score looks ugly.

This score had like 50 views when its just getting processed lol (been processing for like 2 days)... doing better than some of my other scores that have been out for months.

A disclaimer: the MIDI will in no way do this work justice, as it's severely limited in texture and timbre. The engraving might also become messed up when exported onto the site.

This, with the exception of the final movement, is my first major work that takes after contemporary stylization.

The performance notes are in the completed score here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_UY1wjoc0RBHrLTZIabobvLSnZmRveOk/view?usp=sharing

Enjoy!

Don't have a title yet. If I can get this sounding nice quickly enough, it will be a birthday present to one of my friends. Would love any criticism or feedback.

Pocket piece in A/C (original)

1 part4 pages02:235 months ago341 views
Piano
A short piece by me that was inspired by Nahre Sol's pieces for mini keyboard that she calls 'pocket pieces'. I tried to write this for a smaller, three octave keyboard, so that's why some of the stretches in the left hand are huge by normal keyboard standards. Also, as with most of my pieces, I tried out new harmonic ideas out, like in m.58-59. Anyhoo, hope you enjoy! :)

WOAH, A WILD WGI SHOW APPEARS!

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).
