I know there are some musicians on here, so post your stuff~! Or just talk about music. That's cool too.

Here's my SoundCloud. It's mostly limited to pop/electronic stuff that I make on Reason but I do do classical as well.

I created a piano piece once, but I never wrote sheet music for it. I did perform it twice on family celebrations though. that's all I got.

Well, you can always check out my YouTube channel if you haven't already.

Also, I'm the composer (and the drummer and a lot of other stuff as well) in an avant-garde/industrial/folk metal band, we have 9 full-length albums and one minialbum composed but we're still in the middle of recording the first one, so nothing to post.

There are two things that I've always been wondering*: 1) How to make D'n'B songs sound good and 2) what is the purpose of sampled drum loops. I just found the answer to both of these questions and now I feel super dumb.

*: actually more than two but only two are relevant for this story.

I have commented on wero's music and your music before.


I suppose I could comment on Ela's music now. It's not bad; there's clearly some talent there. However, it sounds a lot like mainstream pop. It might be a good idea to get influenced by a wider variety of genres to make the music a little bit more interesting.

I think it was in the Random Stuff II thread. Good luck finding it from there.

Thanks for the compliment. I put my pop music on SoundCloud because it's what I most enjoy making and it's where I'm most likely to get noticed by anything close to the mainstream. However, if you want variety...
The Qui Domi soundtrack is my attempt to mix my composition training with Reason's DIY and electronic nature. This is sort of the same thing, though that one's a bit more just playing around.
Hide and Rise Up are some of my more rock-influenced songs (I was really into Oasis at the time). I actually want to remake Hide on my own, with a sound similar to my friend's songs All On My Own or Can't Lose the Faith, both of which I produced.
Until We Meet Again is my one jazz song. Here's a video of an actual jazz singer and combo performing it at an open jam.
(And now you guys have all seen my face. It was bound to happen at some point.)

I guess I'll take this opportunity to comment on everybody else's stuff, though please be aware that I'm TERRIBLE at giving actual feedback unless you specifically ask for super objective critique.
@Awaclus: Metal isn't normally my thing, but I do like the gothic (medieval?) flavor to the chords and some of the layered sounds. I like the way you mix the wildly different genres in your covers.
@sudgy: Better pianist than me by a mile. It looks like you transcribed those pieces yourself, which is extra awesome.
@werothegreat: You use the timbres in your large scale pieces really effectively, although it's tough to hear what the final sound is with just midi - please tell me you've looked for a real orchestra to play these at some point! My one critique is that you sometimes get locked into one key area for a bit too long (I have this problem too in my classical writing), but when you do modulate it sounds refreshing and pretty great. Random question: Have you ever considered adding a top melody/descant to Fairer Than a Burning Lily? It sounds like it would make a fantastic art song.
@Seprix: I know you already.

Is there something wrong with liking pop music? You can't force someone to be influenced by something, we all like what we like and it's unfair to judge someone else based on your tastes.

No, I like pop music too. I was specifically talking about mainstream pop (Taylor Swift etc). There isn't anything wrong with liking that kind of music either it's pretty hard to not like the songs you've heard over and over again, and it's pretty hard to not hear the songs over and over again. However, composing and producing that kind of music is a bit of a waste if you can't force people to hear them over and over again, because otherwise it's incredibly difficult to make people interested in something that doesn't really stand out in any way.

I'm not trying to force Ela to be influenced by anything in particular, or anything at all. I'm just saying what I think is true.

You're stating your opinion and then trying to force your opinion onto her like it's fact. Also, you don't know anything about what her influences are just from listening to a couple songs, so don't act like you do. Not cool.
