The Magician
What beautiful notes! Love the dissonance. And your expression on the keys, very tender yet confident. Wonderful chords beginning at 2:04. I want more, though, it needs to evolve into something and have an ending. You are well on your way!

an intriguing study
very few people can pull this off. feels like walking on the uneven grass right next to the 'beaten path' - more interesting, varied and ultimately more rewarding. the piano sounds wonderful too.

A rewarding experiment
Indeed, it sounds "magical." Depending on the order of the progression, it can sound like a flower opening or a child descending a long garden staircase. About a week ago, you wrote to me:

"Richard, as you know most music is written on chords built out of 3rds (minor, major, augmented and diminished). I was curious though what chords I would get if I would build the chords on all the other intervals. Turns out that I get very interesting sound when doing this. Here is a Sibelius file with all the possibilities."

Well, I am still trying to get my head around this. How does this differ from the 12-tone system (which also renders dissonance)? I am such a sucker for Western music chords built on thirds.

Thanks,
I am trying out new things here, using dissonances that I never used before and integrating them at some point into my very romantic and classical background.

Yes...new sounds
Breaking away from the 19th century, you are now treading upon the neo-classical. This is a really wonderful track, full of interest and creative dissonance. To my ears, not unlike Prokofiev. The solo sections are particularly appealing and those final several measure of chords are wonderful. I hope you will continue your new experiments because you definitely have a rich field of new sounds to mine. This is all such an esoteric art (what art isn't?). Much enjoyed and way too short!
