It's much fuller than last time. I think you need a major contrast of some kind at this point, harmonic and textural.

Thanks for listening, much appreciated advice though I may move on to another piece under different constraints like I usually do. Finding my voice and whatnot.

I started yet another string quartet in a new rather dissonant style, might be only computer playable. Tell me what you think.

These are the counterpoint rules.

Melodically everything is allowed except the octave, the tritone and the outlining of triads.

Vertically:

A voice may enter on a soft dissonance.

No octave doubling is allowed.

Direct (and parallel) fifths are prohibited.

Soft dissonances are approached in contrary or oblique motion.

Hard dissonances only by oblique motion. (No parallel dissonances of the same type.)

No resolution required.

I've been hard at work with this, I think it is my best so far. I'd gladly recieve (more) criticisms so I can continue expanding it.

So I've expanded it and written some more parts over it. As always, commentaries would be excelent.

I've been working on this for a while now. It's a flute, english horn, bass clarinet, cello and double bass quintet. Pending revision/expansion.

I think the best part is the winding-down staccato/pizzicato section at the end. It maintains a clearer direction than the rest of the piece and has an interesting texture.

Spoken like a true Webernite; that bit came out better than expected "like a hide and seek game" said my father. I quite like the flute above low clarinet, cello and bass section.

A little piece for clarinet, unusually motivic for me.
