--Update-- Hello everyone, I thought I would spotlight this one, because it didn't do so well the first time. But I think this is a special piece, and definitely worth the time to listen. There are a few quotes in the piece, so see if you can find some! Hello all!! It has been 2 months since I last uploaded and I promised a Sonata then, so here it is. Please listen all the way through- it is 23 minutes long so if you don't have time to make it through please wait until you do. I know thats a little demanding, but you won't get everything out of it if you don't. :) The audio is me and my mom playing at my recital in our living room for friends, so there are the inevitable mistakes and fluffs, and a few sneezes. I didn't upload the score because I don't want it stolen. :) I- molto Allegro comodo II- Andante doloroso III- Cadenza furioso- Allegretto Audio: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7yolag3gjx7tda/Recital%20sonata%202%20brinson.mp3?dl=0 Please enjoy and don't be afraid to comment! :)
I have been planning on doing this special piece for a while now. Not only for thanking all of my followers, but also to cherish the special moment where I have graduated from my high school – SPC. Being in high school consists of some of the most valuable and enjoyable moments in my life. Although it has its hardships and adversities, my friends, classmates and teachers have supported me to make these moments bearable. Time passed by quickly, and it gradually came to an end. Therefore, I would like to use this piece to wish all the people I have met in SPC farewell. I have written this piece in a contemporarily, pop-style, which is the first time I have ever stepped away from my usual romantic (actually neo-romantic) style. This piece has its happy, melancholic, emotional and intense moments, just like my high school memories. At the ending, this piece repeats and repeats again, with less and less complexity and volume each time, creating an effect of gradually fading away. This not only creates a feeling of reoccurrence and a never-ending piece, but also symbolises my wishes hoping these past moments to never come to an end. In fact, the marking “dissolvendosi” near the end refers to “fading away” in English. Although this piece’s ending has the illusion of reoccurrence and eternity, an illusion is an illusion, everything will come to an end, so as this piece, or my high school life. So, a farewell, an end, is inevitable. I know it is a bit late, but I would like to dedicate this special moment to thank all of my followers, listeners and fellow MuseScorers for motivating me to create music that can hopefully resonate in our hearts. Therefore, I have dedicated this piece to the 50 followers special. I promise I will create more music in the future. :) Finally, I wish all of the amazing people I have met from SPC, a warm farewell.
Air is second in my 7 movement Suite. The proceeding movement (Prelude) is played attacca. The main concept for this work was to write a substantially technical Chaconne, once I had finished this work I built the Suite around it. Three movements before the Chaconne as an introduction and three movements after. My playing isn't perfect (in the recording) but I believe I convey my musical intention as best as possible.

There are three contrasting sections each employing the same melodic material. The main melody begins a retrograde version half way through its thematic development – after the first triplet. This work explores the different registers of the piano and their subsequent tone colours.

This was hard work. Wanted to write electric quartet 4th movenent. Went for string waltz instead. 1st violin theme sounded backwards. No waltz rythym. Viola amd cello limp. Two days to go. omg panic! Work some kind of cello rythym, spice up viola. Theme has colour no direction. Clean up 2nd violin notes for proper 7th chords. Sounds like funeral procession. Last day. Add intro and outro. Delete dynamics. No good. Desperation - change to electric violins. 2nd violin theme pops! Swap 1st and 2nd violins, adjust mixing volumes ... Electric Quartet - 4th movement (Whew!) Enjoy
I compose by improvising hummed tunes until at least one sticks, then fitting them into structures. I got into a good groove with quintuple meter improvisation one day--the day I came up with the initial tune of this piece. No wonder this is called an "Impromptu-Scherzo"--I initially recorded only the tune and didn't know what the structure of its surrounding piece would be (so I initially labelled it "Impromptu"), then I noticed it sounded rather like a scherzo (with the wrong meter) and could fit into a scherzo and trio form. I actually initially lost my original Musescore file containing the initial tune and had to reconstruct it from memory. It's probably a better piece for that, as I came up with its structure while reconstructing it. I'm aware that this is a highly structured "Impromptu", complete with two rounded binary sections in ternary form--blame Franz Schubert for coming up with the structured Impromptu first. My goal with the full version of this piece is for it to sound exactly like classical music despite being in quintuple meter. Did I succeed? Comment below with your opinion! (I tried to make the trio of this piece influenced by Schubert and Antonín Dvořák's trios-of-scherzos...I don't quite think I succeeded.) I have to note that Bars 28-33 sound quite a lot like Camille Saint-Saëns's "Danse macabre". The "quarter note = eighth note" and vice versa markings are strong guidelines for how much you should accelerate and decelerate. With that being said, I set this piece's current playback so its Bar 112 goes faster than the next bar's target speed of eighth note = 288 bpm (a.k.a. quarter note = 144 bpm, but that's hard to understand in the context of a 5/8 piece). I've now entered this into the International Musescore Composition Contest's 2018 annual composition contest (https://musescore.com/groups/imcc/discuss/5016987 )! (Structure: A1-A2-A1'-A2-A1'-Interlude 1-B1-B1-B2-B1'-B2-B1'-Interlude 2-A1-A2-A1'-Coda)

Hey everybody! I finally got around to composing something! (2nd composition!! Yay!!) This piece is for a composing competition in The Worldwide MuseScore Competition group. https://musescore.com/groups/the-worldwide-musescore-competition The theme is "The Elements", so I chose "Air". For this piece, I imagine the freedom and peace an eagle feels as it soars through the air. I hope y'all enjoy! =D

Hello all! Please completely disregard the score as shown here! The good score is linked below with the sound. The title describes both the counterpoint in each section, and the various sections in the peice being woven together. There are three thematic sections which are each related to the opening fugue. Please enjoy and don't be afraid to comment! :) Score is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a4jhcpy76dp3i6m/Tapestry.pdf?dl=0 Audio is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/japm550dakxu35l/Tapestry%20%282%29.mp3?dl=0 If links don't work let me know.

I just want to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE that's supported me ...you guys are amazing :D Thanks to you guys, I've gained confidence in composition that I never would have before...and it's motivated me to push myself to improve. I'm SO excited to have reached 300!!! Now, onto why this description is so cheesy. Other than having reached 300, yesterday marked the day I had spent exactly one year on musescore. Like daaaaang, time's passed so quickly... HUGE shout out to all the people that have encouraged me, supported me, been amazing friends, and taken the time to look at, comment on, and favourite my works. You guys made my year :DDD Also thank you Laughingintherain for being follower #300!!! Now, about the piece. It's definitely another huge risk I decided to take. I've noticed I tend to use really simple chords over and over again, and thinking about what chords to use wasn't helping much. So this time, I tried NOT to think about chords or theory or anything (I stopped learning theory 6 months ago, so I can't count on that to spoon feed me new chords). I just let my creativity run its own course. To be honest I can't even identify all the chords in here, and I'm pretty sure I broke at least 5 theory rules...if you see them feel free to point them out :P So the not thinking about theory thing has resulted in a kinda weird structure, but overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :D The soundfont is the akai-Steinway soundfont made by polyphone user Denis. The picture is from 7-themes.com Ethan Toavs has created an AMAZING orchestral version of this piece - it's a MUST-check-out. https://musescore.com/user/13114821/scores/5178673 And I know he followed me after 300, but he still deserves a HUGE shoutout for being so supportive and creating such a fantastic arrangement of my piece :D Also be sure to check out BmMusic's orchestral arrangement of this piece as well! https://musescore.com/bmmusic/shine-through And shout out to him for being my 10th ever follower on musescore as well :D Note: If you want to arrange this piece (or any of my compositions), ASK PERMISSION FIRST. You only have permission to proceed after I give you the thumbs up :)

Some things: 1. This was composed for the 2018 Merriman Family Young Composers Workshop. The piece will be performed on June 4th by members of the Seattle Symphony, along with pieces from 9 other Seattle teen composers. (And, yes, I will upload the live audio once I get it). 2. Sorry for the really, really messy score. I'm going to make the final score and parts in Sibelius (which I bought but don't know how to use yet). This score is a bit of a rough draft type of deal--it didn't make sense to fix all the formatting mistakes because I'm not going to actually use this version. 3. I would love to discuss the exact chain of events that inspired this piece, but I'm afraid it's just too personal to stick randomly on the internet. 4. This piece is looking through a broken window at a past life. That was before you tore each other to pieces and the world splintered into fragments that skittered across the wood floor of your cabin up north. Your life is the broom that you use to sweep up the memories and the glue that you use to stick the pieces to each other very carefully, yet you know you will never again feel that crisp air or see the field of snow that would stretch from horizon to horizon. You would hide in that sweater, the one that covered your whole body, you would hide until it consumed you. The window was a corridor blocked by an iron gate, a cave, a hole that you would step carefully around because falling in would be something from which you could never recover. I am not the savior that we both thought I was. The window was your shield; you would look back when you were in that kind of mood and I told myself to look but don't touch; listen but don't say anything because you will never understand. When the gate opened, the flood came and washed us to the ends of the Earth and I knew I would never again see the beauty that you taught me how to see. The world was a train that I missed, left behind at the empty station, my voice would echo, echo off the walls and you were the clock in the hallway that I would look at and I would only see the halted motion of the second hand but you knew that time would come again, and it did. Eons later at the beginning of my life I look back and see nothing but the hazy memories of snowfall; an old picture slowly fading away. There is a moment of eerie calm as I look through that broken glass for the last time, and I am strangely happy, a spectator at the game of my own life. The picture may fade, but I know we can never forget, we can only look forward. https://www.seattlesymphony.org/families-learning/young-artists/workshop
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. Rhapsody No. 5
