A song I just finished writing. It consists of a flute, a clarinet, and two violins.
I enjoyed, enjoy, will enjoy this muchly. Have played it many times. Good for you. Which sounds hopelessly condescending but is not intended as such.
So the next question is... can anyone write a story that goes along with this?
... to one's own comment?
Seems slightly stalkerish....
I wanted to tell you that I accidentally played this on two tabs... and then, probably because I've had too much caffeine, I put it on three tabs and started them at one bar intervals. I realize that is NOT what you intended and, perhaps, even cheapens the experience, but what the hey, it was kind of cool. It gave it a kind of Steve Reich effect ... http://newmusicensemble.org/page4/page4.html (actual clip: http://www.therestisnoise.com/files/18excerpts.mp3 I have the full recording if you ever wish to borrow it.)
or, this short-take promo of the Terry Riley in C Project by this same ensemble (Grand Valley State New Music Ensemble) which shows what having a strong rhythm line in the piece could do...
Your piece has stopped now.
I'll be good.
Actuallyyy... I did that too! xD
What do you know. Maybe that IS what I intended, subconsciously...
And thanks. Glad you like it.
Oh wow. First of all, I'd like to say I was taken on a majestic video game journey with this piece. Kinda actually sounds like something yours truly would mess around with. I love the harmonic arrangements. And the atonal parts. All well arranged. Something I'd expect to be in the Legend of Zelda or something of the sort. ~GG~.... wow. hahaha. this is actually some of the most obscure coolest music I've ever had the fortune to come across. I'm a newbe to Terry Riley. I appreciate you putting this up here. Again, something of the genre I strive to create and screw around with. Thank you both for these influencial pieces!
What program do you use for writing music?
I've never heard of the Legend of Zelda... a video game?
Haha yeah it's the best video game ever created. Made for N64. I use Studio One Pro. Check out some of my electronic projects if you feel so inclined.
... you totally need to share here Jabba, Battle, Punks... loved them.
music is like my whole life but i have never heard such a beautifully flowing song.
find the rhythm, oh wait! that's me!
I loved this song... brilliant.
this is so awesome! it transferred me into another world. i play violin and have always been interested in using computer software to compose music. what program do you use? the end of the peice was almost like a lullaby. it really ended on a good note. (haha no pun intended).
Ooh, nice. I used to play the violin, but I haven't played since this summer when I switched to cello...
I use Sibelius.
I closed my eyes and savored each bar of music. It is a splendid composition and I felt like I had a free ticket to the symphony! Thank you for sharing your talent! Personally, I don't know if I want anyone to write a story to accompany your work...I want us each to create our own story, unfettered by the impressions of others!
This is absolutely gorgeous! You're extremely talented at composing! Methinks you deserve loads of recognition for this! Amazing!
ある所に、小さな夢がありました。誰が見たのかわからない、それは小さな夢でした -------> "Somewhere, there was a tiny dream. It was such a tiny dream that no one knew who had dreamt it..."
Beautiful. My mind feels like I'm floating in a warm beautiful place...which is impressive because I'm sitting in a cold room on a snow day :)
Aw, thanks everyone!
I tried the three-tab thing, only my timing was just a tiny bit off. Suddenly I'm listening to an entirely different piece, but STILL amazing. This is an incredibly written, incredibly versatile piece of music. I bet if you sold it to James Cameron he'd use it in his next movie. Something with wide, sweeping landscape shots.
I'm not trying to ruin anybody's life. Sometimes I'm just really, really bad at doing people favors.
mysterious!!!!!!!! I like it!
