Quote from: greg on September 04, 2007, 10:58:17 AMi looked that book up:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doktor_Faustusthat sounds like a fun book! Next time i go to the library, i'll see if they have it.that's cool but yeah, that's just how it seems these days, i haven't written anything in almost a year, but i've had an idea every once few months, except i'd write something down and then erase it! the two main problems are: 1) i'm starting to compose at the piano instead of the guitar 2) using 4 staves instead of 2 when i attempt something orchestrali've solved #2, deciding from now on to stick to two staves (it can be done, although a lot of information might be left out in some sections, and i have to do stuff like never write octaves, whatever to save space). The solution to #1 is to just learn how to play the piano much better; i've been playing through Prokofiev's sonatas and have gotten a lot better since a long time ago, though still i can play very little at full speed. And playing his stuff is fuuuuuuuuuuun!!!! so, i might just practice the piano for a few months and pick up where i left off (bar 2 lol)

Quote from: MahlerTitan on September 05, 2007, 07:12:06 AMinteresting compositions, maybe i should upload some of mine too..
Quote from: Cato on September 05, 2007, 06:58:19 AMAnyway: on composing I always found two staves restricting, and most of the time used at least 4 staves, if not 6 or 8, depending on the size of the work. And then it was on to the orchestral paper.
Quote from: Cato on September 05, 2007, 06:58:19 AMOne of my former students graduated from the Mozarteum in Salzburg and is now a professor of piano: Prokofiev sonatas are his specialty.It is usually good to have Prokofiev at your fingertips!

Quote from: greg on August 30, 2007, 11:11:10 AMi added that piece that is based off of Terry Riley's In C as op.11, "We'll C" (yep, i just thought of the title)so if my next opus is called "Night", it'll be op.12, that's why i changed the thread name
Quote from: greg on September 19, 2007, 10:19:21 AMIt's not a problem of writing in general, just ideas- i don't want it to jump to the next idea, yet i also don't want it stay too much the same, because it can get boring and lead into a sound harmonically that i don't want.
