    Back for a little while. I haven't really composed anything "for fun" for about a year now, I'd say. Here's a harmonization exercise - basically to start making use of some interesting structures.

    And for those who dare, I have made another transcription of Canon in D. You are warned. http://soundcloud.com/yeng-chang/bar...mad-canon-in-d

    Thanks, Eternal for the set!

    I really liked the harmonization. Some interesting stuff you were doing in there, especially at the end. I feel your play with the functions we're really creative (however could you make the recordings more clear or just provide sheet music?)

    Since switching to focusing my time more on jazz, I've found that jazz players are really the modern kings of [re]harmonization, so you might want to check out some pianists like Oscar Peterson, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner, and many more to look at... (I can give you more specific recordings if you're interested in what/how they do things).

    And good god, the Canon. It was a great aural exercise trying to focus on one of those notes and trying to hear it being harmonized with the other ones. Honestly, a more 'appreciable' version

    Your harmonic study was just beautiful. Really well done. Would you mind posting the sheet music?

    Your Canon seemed a little…passive aggressive.

    This reminds me a lot of Beethoven. The idea of the piece is really simple and elegant, and I love what you've done with it. I think the triplets in the right hand (measures 12 & 19) are simply beautiful—very nice touch. The only criticism I have is that maybe with a stronger melody it would be more catchy, but I don't even know if that's what you're really going for. Very well done.

    The semiquaver with the triplet is fantastic. I like the accentuated weak beats that helps a bit to avoid the expected. The piece in general got a consistent enjoyable color. And it has that Beethoven's touch with a bit of Rachmaninoff. It would be great to hear this inserted in a piece of bigger magnitude. It sounds like tiny taste.

    The Canon did not hold my interest the enough. As soon as I heard its dissonance I started to expect and increment of it. Like a crescendo that each time become more and more dissonant till it become just "noise".
    When you dare, you go further, experience new things and learn.

    Thanks for the comments!

    As I look back at this exercise, I see two main influences: Debussy and Beethoven. I think much of the main idea in this exercise can be derived from this piece:



    Another piece that came into my head as I looked back was this one:



    I've also been listening to Rachmaninoff Preludes quite a bit lately (mainly the two most well-known ones: the g minor and c# minor ones).

    Haha, the Canon. Let's just say I'm not going to bother with that piece much longer.

    I'm just going to leave this here... quite possibly one of Rachmaninoff's best works (in my opinion)



    And thank-you for providing a less reverbish recording + score

    For those of you who are still around, I wrote a sketch. This is meant to be more of an orchestration exercise more than anything... I haven't written for anything other than piano for a while now. https://soundcloud.com/yeng-chang/sk...ings-8-31-2013

    What program did you use to create the music?
