Description
Tinkering in A Minor with chords, I experimented at horrible length and made some awful noises at times. Hopefully I saved the successful parts of the experimenting for this tune.

Tinkering?
I'd like to be able to tinker like that.

Interesting piece. The change at 1:50 or so is almost funereal.

Cheers

Thank you.
I think some aspects of this are a little limited, but it did teach me a few things about chords. Glad you found it interesting.

Opening...
nice. But the sudden stop about 10 seconds into the opening phrase was off-putting to me. I was looking for something more fluid and you tricked me. I think that's what bothers me about this track: the juxtaposition of the 16th note phrases with slower sections that don't seem to explore enough territory. Thinking in terms of longer phrases might be a way to establish more of a sequence of musical events that flow from one another. Nevertheless, experimentation is always to be applauded, since it leads to areas that have not been explored before.

Thanks.
To be honest I was in two minds about whether to post this or not, it's wasn't put together carefully as it really was just the best bits of some messing around on the keyboard and some piano-roll editing. However I expect that some of my future posts will benefit from what I learned during that mess-about, more so than this piece itself. Longer phrases will be kept in mind for better transitions.

Tuneful tinkering

Glad you enjoyed.
Messing around is fun, and in this case taught me a few things I hope to use later for something significantly better.

tinkering is how we make progress. i hear what dick means about that change at 1:50 having a feel of a funeral march. experiment away - good job!

Learning by messing about?
It seems that way quite often. The "funeral march" phrases may well appear in something better one day, as well as some of the chord progressions from my session that are missing from this. Thanks for the listen and the comment.

I can appreciate it
Although I am only a tinkerer at the keys. I think this kind of experimentation is how we cement the relationships we learn on an instrument. I can hear what you are doing and I can relate it to the instrument.

Would this be classed as 'romantic'? - there are some very pretty and attractive ideas here for sure and I enjoyed it all very much.

nostalgia
Interesting composition.
Reminded me a bit of Debussy.
The change at 1.50 is a little unusual but seems to work ok.
Piano seems just a tiny bit harsh and maybe a slightly softer tone would work a little better
Enjoyed

Living in London, England, and I love the place. I have masses of energy and tons of interests, far too many to list here, even if I restricted myself to my musical tastes. Grew up in a small town, knew nothing much till I left and came to Lond... [see more]
