Here is my first ever and only (so far) composition. It begins with a short and very simple piano introduction and then moves on to a strings passage which revolves around a three-note pattern, and builds to a climax.
I'd love to hear what you all think, and would be very grateful for any criticism, advice or just general comments you could give me.
I'm 18, and have never had any musical training (I didn't even take music at school) so the only musical knowledge I have is what I have read myself from books such as "idiots guide to composition" and this brilliant web site.
I am very in love with music, I first became interested through film music. My favorite film composers are James Horner and John Williams (among others. Recently, I have begun to look into all types of serious music and Prokofiev is my favorite of the composers I have looked into so far.
I always laughed off the thought of me doing anything musical because I grew up not knowing what a treble clef or 4/4 time is. But with the help of Garritan Personal Orchestra and this site I've finally started to believe I can start a long journey towards composing and hearing music I can be proud of.
So there we go.
