Tell me what you think of it and see if you can recognize it. :)

By the way, it's a computer recording, not me live. :p

Nice variation, sounds like the left hand of a Chopin-etude mixed with the theme of the second movement of the 7th Symphony :)

Here are a couple originals from me trying to imitate the Bach style. One is a Menuet and one is an invention. I think Bach would be rolling in his grave if he heard them though...:moon:

I think they're both quite good, although Barock isn't exactly my favourite kind of classical music :) I'm sure though most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between your compositions and Bach, especially in the second piece.

What program did you use for those?

Very nice! He'd probably be flattered, you know what they say about imitation... I I've been playing the piano for 11 years but have recently been out of contact with my piano :( Do you mind if I save them to my Mp3?

I try to compose in several different styles. My main influences for a more "modern" sound are Debussy, Ives, Bartok, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky. Right now, I'm trying to go with the overly schmaltzy Liszt sound, but it seems as if I'm mixing styles yet again. =p

Sibelius. I used to use Finale, but it was confusing and the instruction manual was pretty cryptic. Sib. is much more user friendly.

Liszt was also quite good at making his own variations of classical music, so maybe you can learn a few things from him. For example how to make a piece so difficult that it's almost unplayable :)

I had Sibellius at one time, but I like more experimenting with a real piano. Too bad that my flat is too smal for a piano, so I only get to play every once in a while :( Maybe I will get one of those digital pianos though.

When you say a computer recording, you mean pretty much a midi program?
