Final Project Rough
MPR December 2011
My Final composition was created in the thoughts of it being able to tell a story. I let the song start out flowing very smooth and mellow and I wanted the song to tell its own story. It is very mellow with a few builds of tension; which I would always bring down the tension to make it feel complete. You never want to have that feeling of not knowing the outcome, where the builds in the song almost create a question while listening to the song. Hope you enjoy!
1.) Did you feel like the accompaniment (piano) would get too busy with the other instruments being to slow in the background and the piano would then become its own melody and rhythm without the help of the other instruments?
2.) Did you feel like the song had too many transitions? Or other words, was there too much change and not enough repetition between all the instruments working together?
3.) At times I felt that the last 4 measures changed too much in the piano and it didn’t quite finish the song to feel complete. It felt to abrupt to end the song. Was this an issue that you might have noticed as well?
Thank you for listening and I hope you really enjoyed this piece. Notation is definitely new to me and I know I have a lot to learn and many years of practice ahead of me so any criticism is great!
