Musical Cemetery

For Solo (instrumental or vocal part)

Uploaded on Aug 26, 2018

I know, the title is quite morbid, and I guess the music expresses the theme well. I wanted it to sound like a musical cemetery (hence the name), with unorthodoxly dissonant bass chords striking at irregular intervals and melodies that do not fit in the 12-tone scale norm, just like my piece "Pura", which you can check out here : https://musescore.com/user/28750871/scores/5199058

Graveyards provoke in most of us feelings of unease, sorrow and unstability. I gave my music exactly those qualities, but with a very free feel added as well.

I hope you'll like this composition! Comments are of course welcome.

Very atmopheric piece. I like the phrasing in the right hand. And the sonoritiy in bar one is superb :)
Very nice! Really sounds like a Contemporary piece.. Really liked the sound!
Thanks! It is a contemporary piece, or at least it's supposed to be one.
Chills! Very abstract, (not a bad thing) this actually is very good!! Keep up the good work!!
That's actually very good, congratulations. The opening statement is hauntingly beautiful. Contemporary and romantic at the same time, like a painting from Caspar David Friedrich (I believe that's what I am seeing in the right picture). I have some remarks about how the score looks, if I may. You could work on some slurs. The phrases would come out nicely. And I also advise you to drag the ped. marks below the system. And in bar 10 you could change the a# for a b flat. We hear a major second (c - b flat). Now it looks almost like some sort of minor third. Music with a timeless sense of beauty should have a score with the suggestion of Eastern calligraphy. That's at least my strong opinion about it, which you can ignore at will, of course.
Thanks for your advice. I don't exactly know what you mean by your Eastern calligraphy stories anyway. But thank you again for liking it!
Maybe I shouldn't have used the word Eastern, it can mean anything. Now with slurs added to your score, you have visualized the aspect of 'breathing', of phrases. It's something that looks natural and beautiful. It adds to the expectation of the music we yet have to learn. That's what I mean. That's why it is so advisable to make neat scores.
