A final bunch of #counterpoint exercises. I've been composing one of these a day pretty solidly for six months, so gonna take a break. I want to try 3-voice writing, but I'm not sure if I should do that within the constraints of the 18th Century method I've been following so far... #classical #Music #composition #practice
Some cheeky LBMs (little brown #mushrooms) I spotted poking up from my parents' patio. Does this mean that the mycelium extends all the way underneath the flagstones? Must do!
#Counterpoint #composition #practice #exercises recorded with OBS and #musescore, from the last few days. Fourth species counterpoint, so, every note in the harmony line is half a measure away from the notes in the original melody (AKA cantus firmus). The harmony line is above the original in these examples, but can equally be below.
Another big pile o' third-species #counterpoint. I'm getting the hang of the various mannerisms used to arrive at a targeted note. And the last couple of attempts here are coherent right through. Repetition is both friend and enemy, it gives necessary structure, but if it happens by accident (say a recurring scalar descent) it sounds bad. #classical #Music #composition #practice #musescore
