My mostly orchestral etudes (Sonatina, Guitarix, etc.)

Post by Lyberta »

So I usually don't give out names to my compositions and just number them

Here they are: https://lyberta.net/stuff/music/etudes/

This can be the official comment thread because I don't have comments on site because reasons.

I also will update this thread when new etude comes out.

Hi,

I haven't had time to listen to all of them yet but what I've heard so far are very impressive! Very nice melodic ideas and arrangements and the orchestral sounds are very good, thanks for sharing!

I listened to most of these today while I was doing some light reading. I think you're getting some good sounds out of your setup and they're nicely balanced. What I would work on next if I were you, is employing more counter-melodies. Usually you only have one melody going on at a time which is fine, but some strategically placed melodies that run counter to the main melody would make these more interesting to listen to. Espcially for the orchestral styled tracks.

cheers.

What sample banks do you use?

It is called counterpoint. When I was a medical college student, I've been told about it at musical theory lessons. It's a must if you write orchestral pieces, because harmony and a single voice melody over it can't be considered an orchestration at all. Common orchestration can have up to three counterpoints along with lead voice. More is possible, but it won't sound good at all.

You may call it counterpoint, I chose otherwise as to not be conflated with certain baroque species of counterpoint.

No need to impose limits on one's creativity. "Sound good" is subjective. Cacophony is desirable in some contexts. Also I think Bach's 6-part Ricercare sounds quite good.

cheers.

Just a small note. I didn't give a proper attention to the licenses of the samples I was using. I will be relicensing most of the tracks.
