I haven't posted music for a while, have final exams coming up the end of this month but I've been composing all along too as a sanity outlet (!) and I'd like to share my recent work:

Starlights

This Nocturne-like piece is supposed to convey a sense of mysterious romance, the feeling we get when we contemplate that there's something very beautiful and mystical about the clear night sky. (imagine a vast, still black lake below it for added cheesy effect!)

Please enjoy smile

Agreed, very nice! I love harmonic surprises and this nocturne doesn't disappoint. Very beautiful too. My only criticism is it struck me as abit long, but I couldn't begin to suggest what, where or how to edit it.

I loved this, it made me feel like I could feel the earth turning slowly.

PS May I say, every time you post I feel like I want to crawl under a rock for at least 2 weeks! smile

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the kind replies - I'm really glad you did enjoy it smile

Steve, I know what you mean. Looking back, there was a lot of "trying to get back to 'A section'" in the middle that might have made the 'B' section (which really splits into a genuine B and a development of 'A'). By being "a bit long", has it, to you, necessarily lost momentum? I'm not fussed with "long" - there're loads of good long pieces out there - but I do get concerned when the ball is perceived to have touch the ground, so to speak.

By the way, thank you so much for the score of your 10 piano pieces - I've just realised I never got back to you, sorry about that. I haven't got round to analysing it properly but it's definitely on the list of things to do after my exams are over.

Currawong, I do feel that this is one of my better ones (and definitely the best in a while), so you might not be as impressed with my earlier pieces wink

You're being far too nice, it makes me feel guilty... smile I'm just checking out your cell-phone song, taking forever to download...!
