I hope my English is good enough for this. This is my first thread here, and I post some of my latest works. The first one “Wasserlauf in flirrender Luft” is a dodecaphonic piece for Piccolo, Flute, English Horn, Bb Bass Clarinet and Harp. It’s based up on a lyric 12-ton scale so the piece itself sounds quite gentle. All instruments are from GPO except the Bass Clarinet, that one comes from JABB.
Hi Jan and Welcome to the community! Your English is great and your first posted piece is a really good rendering. The woodwinds sound very realistic,
watch your levels on the piccolo, it sounds a bit piercing at times. Interesting panning effect there at the end.
The second piece shows a lot of promise, I like the full sound you achieved with it, nice work with the dynamics as well.
Thanks for sharing these, I hope to hear much more from you in the future.
Two dramatic works. In the 1st, something sounded like a Gamalon(sp)(gong.) Good tone color contrast.
The 2nd seemed to have lower levels for some of the instruments(bass cl)
but that may be so in order to achieve such a large crescendo.
I haven't even read about dodecaphonic music. I'll have to check wikapedia.
An impressive, different sort of work.
@Gary I suggest the Gamalon-like sound you mentioned is one of the lower Harp chords. I'm quite happy about you association, because indeed my intention was to make it sound like some kind of percussion instrument.
