Loud Emotions Clouding the Eyes

2 parts3 pages01:303 years ago267 views
Piano, Timpani
When thoughts reflect in your eyes and become incapacitating. Even if they are decent emotions or bad emotions, they can still overpower you. So much so that the timpani bash seemed like the only way to do.

The Symphony of These Sleepless Nights

All necessary explanation can be found in the title. I wrote this, keeping in mind a lot of the advice that I received for my previous monster, "An American in Reykjavik". This one, is either better or worse, and I go through varying opinions. This is definitely a piano concerto, featuring a few major themes, all of which were developed using my keyboard. Also, I don't know what's going on with some of the bar-lines. Anyway, enjoy =)

How We Dream it's Dark

A somewhat minimalist rendition of a grim dream, not a nightmare, but something that we don't forget.

I remember I used to have so much to say about my scores...

Something That You Said Once

This took about sixty seconds, to occupy a space of boredom, wherein I felt I have been underappreciating the bassoon. It's kind of fun.

Brilliant People Have Several Priorities

Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass, Trumpet(2), French Horn, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion(2)
People who consider everything.

I think there are a lot of tubas needed. Also a lot of violoncellos and contrabasses.

A simple song about how we keep doing things until long after we want to stop doing them. It's kind of minimalist. But I don't know for sure, though, I finished it a few seconds ago, and I started it five minutes before that. So, you know. Digging.

Scarf Weather (W/ Strings)

Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass
It's no longer scarf weather.

Every time I listen to this song I think "This would be so much more dramatic with some double-bass tremolo." So I did.

Snazzy Interlude #1

1 part5 pages03:183 years ago173 views
I own a piano as of 3:22 PM. It's a milestone, so I checked the clock. Rather, I should say, it's a keyboard, but it is a very nice keyboard, and I love it more than your average healthy person would love to have a piano. I do not play the piano, but, nonetheless, I have taught myself to play a couple of the songs I've written on other pianos, and with this piano, I hope to perfect them. Also, I'd like to use this piano as a means to form melodies. Immediately after setting up the keyboard, I started to doodle, and the doodling hence lead to the score above. I titled it "Snazzy Interlude #1" because there will be definitely be more doodlepieces like it. What is it an interlude for? Who knows...
Four Études For Piano in 7/4

Four Études For Piano in 7/4

1 part5 pages08:253 years ago217 views
Because 7/4 is among the most awkward time signatures, I figured it would be a most fun and interesting challenge to write a succession of songs combined by that feature. As expected, it was difficult to create any sort of melody without averting the regulations of the beat, but I'm proud of the four that came about. The first melody came to me at the seat of a piano, where I sat, doodling, until some of the notes I was playing just worked nicely. I considered posting the études separately, but altogether, I think it sounds nice. However, if you're limited on time, I suggest numbers two and four as my personal favorites.

Nothing is Real

1 part1 page01:363 years ago170 views
PLEASE: Visit the link below to hear the ACTUAL SONG:
The score you're seeing here on MuseScore is just something I threw together to set the mood, but trust me, the real thing is mush longer, and much more interesting. My main intention in doing this is to comment on the concept that everything is simply perception (i.e. that nothing is actually happening beyond our own consciousness). For this little dabble in techno, I decided to go the philosophical rout, although "Nothing is Real" is a much more intense title than what it was originally called. I do hope you enjoy this experiment as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Scarf Weather

Scarf Weather

Just something to help you settle in for winter. Scarf weather is my favorite kind of weather, that which contains sweaters, jackets, and wool socks. Unfortunately, this climate is fleeting, ceases abruptly just when you find the right scarf, and is promptly followed by heavy coats, gloves, boots, and that long wait for the heat to kick in. So, savor every moment, because it's such a beautiful day today, and winter isn't quite here yet.
Morning Matter Wonder

Morning Matter Wonder

1 part4 pages02:473 years ago169 views
Just a somewhat nice, somewhat grim, most-of-all mysterious piece in ultrapianissimo and ultraprestissimo. That's all that really needs saying except that, well, please listen to the VideoScore if you want this to be an even remotely enjoyable experience. The MuseScore 2.0 piano SoundFont is great, but it sure isn't soft and peaceful.

Sawdust Étude

1 part1 page01:093 years ago188 views
An étude for the pianist and the composer alike, as for me, this was an experiment with complexity. Many of my songs I write come from a sudden break of inspiration, or a melody appearing in a fleeting part of my brain, but this song simply fell into existence because of my inspiration to write something impressive. As for the title, the original was "Wood", for no reason that I can explain, and the theme sort of progressed from there.

Intimate Dance with Death

Percussion(5), Timpani, Piano, Cello(2)
You'd laugh if you knew how long it took for me to realize this was a waltz. This was inspired by the first measure of "VARIATIONS on a Gravisco" by Loklokfafa (https://musescore.com/user/50046/scores/1241581), although I must say, I didn't expect this to turn out anything like it did. For example, the original title was "Tomorrow Being Monday", but I changed it once I realized I had made a very morbid sounding waltz, and that Halloween-waltz seems to be a very popular theme.

Post Script: Happy Halloween, MuseScore!

I wrote this for one reason and one reason only: to be catchy. It's not a very good song otherwise, but I dare you to not find yourself swaying to this. I also had the indirect thought that it may follow my "Suite For Four Cellos" for my cello choir, so if that occurs, a performance of this should be uploaded as a VideoScore... sooner or later. And, speaking of VideoScores, the MuseScore 2.0 SoundFont completely takes away the catchiness of this song, so if you want to fully appreciate it, I implore you to check out the VideoScore for the MuseScore 1.3 SoundFont.

P.S. I am preemptively dedicating this to my 200th follower, who I can sense is quite near. Hopefully this will be the first song they listen to!

Last night, in the middle of the night, I felt a melody coming on, and hastened to write the first four measures of this, before falling asleep moments later. As much as I'd love to take credit for this fascinating title, I actually am borrowing it from a play I read today by Annie Baker. My school's drama club has chosen it as our newest piece, and I cannot wait to hear how it turns out, as it is dark, comedic, and entrancing in all the right ways, enough that I can honestly state that the play was my true inspiration.
