Second Piece "The Lord of the Rings".

Basically I was putting together some original music themes that I created today and played them on the Keyboard.

Of course some better structure is needed but you can listen to it the way it is for now.

I present to you, "The Lord of the Rings" for piano and strings.

Hope you ejoy it, Saul.

Saul :

As mentioned in response to your first "Lord of the Rings" post yesterday, you may get more interested responses if you post this on the Non-classical Forum.

Regards,


BruceD

I like the affect you're going for, I would encourage you to keep the flow going a bit more, so the song doesn't stop and go. It sounds a bit like you're improvising, is this correct? If not, you may wish to secure the notes, as I hear some most likely unwanted ones happeneing (which do happen on keyboards).

Have you tried recording the strings separate from the piano? That will allow you to get more continuity in the sound as the piano fades but the strings continue on.

I also recommend coming up with another idea so that you are not simply repeating the same material. Repetition is good, but too much can be predictable, so it is important to change things up. The great composers were masters at this, and some would never repeat something exactly the same way (like Mozart).

Have you posted this on the composer's forum?

Thanks for the response, I do agree with much of what you guys said. Yes it was an improvisation but basically the music themes were constructed before the improvisation, so I kinda knew more or less what I was doing. It needs to be written now, polished and revised.

This was an experimental piece, it needs much more work.

Thanks for the comments and for listening,

Best Wishes,

Thanks for sharing your music with us, Saul. Is this programmatic at all, or does it just capture a mood that you feel when reading/watching Lord of the Rings?
