Hello ive made a piece and i posted here and one of the things that you said is that it was very predictable. So i made another and i hope it is less prdictable.

http://www.mediafire.com/listen/cn1w7vlwl3f2nl3/Gravac%CC%A7a%CC%83o+nova+2.m4a

you have to copy the link

P.S: i forgot to change the pedal before the last pedal so it is dissonace, but i liked the rest so i poted anyway.

I'm not sure what you PS means the end sounded fine but I wasn't listening very closely. Your piece is nice enough and it is less predictable so you're making progress. I understand that you're interested in improving your compositions, but you have to find your own voice. That means being the best you that you can be and always seeking to improve. Your style of music is not so much to my taste, but another composer posted a piece in a similar style and I very much enjoyed his piece.

It's not my intent to discourage you, but to make you try harder. The hardest thing for composers is learning to be your own worst critic. Rework your musical ideas until there's no further improvement to be found. Then ask yourself if it's good enough (it may not be).

I enjoyed listening. A traditionally intervalled melody that is even just listenable is one of the hardest things for a composer to come up with. Maybe what is needed is a contrasting section to make this a quite longer work as with a Chopin Nocturne which is not all the same from start to finish.

Some issue with the lack of recipience may reside with the piano interpretation rather than the music content.

The addition of some artfully rolled chords and some playing of one hand before the other might help the melody carry.

And I second what Steve posted.

Thanks for sharing this!

I like this piece. And predictability is perhaps what holds it together I think.
The strict roles of the left and right hand delivering rythm and harmony, and melody respectively.
Moreso, the overall picture of the piece is a reassemblence of a theme in four variations: major, minor, chromatic, and back to major.

I'm not sure I'm qualified to delve into the mechanics of it, but from an aesthetic perspective, I was very much reminded of the sort of youthful peace that Ennio Morricone creates in his work, especially in his soundtrack for the film "Cinema Paradiso." In other words, I enjoyed it very much! It has a cinematic taste to it.
