Good to see/hear you again Jonny,

I can't quite match the title, 'Journey of a Bubble' with the music.
This piece seems over busy and climactic too many times, especially towards the end.

What do you think about orchestrating this for an ensemble?
Cheers to your enthusiasm and ongoing piano composing.

Oh cool thanks for for the suggestion, I think that's a good advice, I imagined colorful bubbles going up and popping thus the climaxes and switches.

Umm yeah, I had some sounds in mind but don't have the software to orchestrate it as they are not the traditional sounds.

Hehe yeah I'll come back next year and share something else, hehe yup I guess that's enthusiasm... lol.

Now that was enjoyable! It went places and was never predictable. I agree it probably spent too much time in the forte dynamic, but it was still enjoyable listening. In the future plan to take it down to softer dynamic ranges so the climaxes can have more impact. It definitely had a sound that would lend itself well to a musical. I don't know what sounds you had in mind for orchestrating it, but there's real potential here. It's not serious classical, but it's pretty good music.

This has spontaneity and life. I am surprised it is actually written out. Had I not known, I would have assumed it was a rather nice improvisation. Well done.

Thanks guys, yeah the dynamics would've been better if there was more of a contrast....but as my technical skills have grown dull I couldn't be bothered practicing to get it right. Hopefully someone can do a better job than me and I'd look forward to hear that.

Yeah I was going to orchestrate it with the melody given a crystalline timbre and the accompaniment with bubbly effect...can't be bothered searching for those sounds.....arg heck I think I"ve just grown too old to care anymore loll.. *goes to sleep on the ground*

One thing I've learned from experience, if you can't be bothered to learn it, chances are no one else will bother to learn it. Don't talk to me about old, what are you 20ish?

yeah, volume to me just a spur of the moment thing so can't imagine practising for that...i guess that's why it sounds spontaneous,

I guess when you get to a certain age it's hard to balance a full time job with composition, + I'm not talented technically so hard to find time to practise

Hey JonnyJohn:

Very nice job. It has a contemporary sweet piano sound with a classical touch. If you've been only composing a year, then bravo! Thanks for sharing.
