Quote from: hornteacher on January 13, 2008, 04:08:47 PMI often use the flat major seventh chord as an unexpected substitute for the dominant.
Quote from: karlhenning on January 15, 2008, 06:11:05 AMYou mean the major triad of the flatted seventh degree, right?
Quote from: karlhenning on January 15, 2008, 06:11:05 AMThat's borrowed from the modes, and has been one of the expected substitutes for the Dominant, since the mid-19th century, you know
Quote from: hornteacher on January 15, 2008, 03:50:21 PMOh, I know. I don't claim to have invented the technique . . . .

Quote from: 僕はグレグ (Greg) on January 18, 2008, 03:24:41 PMi wonder how that sounds.....
Quote from: mikkeljs on January 19, 2008, 01:12:16 AMMy latest pieces was some inventions for viola. The first one was most like Mahler, the second like american minimalism, the third like Salieri on a bad day (as my teacher said ).
Quote from: lukeottevanger on January 19, 2008, 02:49:27 AM]So if we find the common denominator between those three, that's what the double fractal common value in a quintic complex sounds like?
Quote from: rappy on January 19, 2008, 05:22:55 AMConcerning my composition style, people always tell me that it sounds a lot like Prokofiev or Schubert. Dunno why. Maybe it's because of melodical gift. I could never imagine trying to "find" a theme/melody by ratio (like Beethoven (often) did: experimenting by placing intervals in different orders etc.) - it's either there and I use it, or it's there and I round it up. It's a bit like what you do when you're improvising.I think Schubert and Prokofiev did the same, other examples would be Tchaikovsky and Mozart, or Mendelssohn. I think that's why their thematic material is so very different to for example Beethoven's or Brahms'.
