Really Wondering...

Post by CripKilla on Thu May 28, 2009 9:43 pm

...Accidentals in composition. Whenever I'm learning a piece or trying to compose, I'm wondering: How all these accidentals sounds so good?(classical pieces mostly)
Basicaly you go out of the tonality you're in. But how can you do that in your own composition?
That is really torturing me!!!!!!!

If you got the talent, there is still hours of composing and practice to come before you get good at it. You have to use your ear a lot, and listen for the good accidentals! Im doing a composition now, with some accidentals! Its sort of new to me to experiment with it, but its coming along Smile Sorry I cant be of anymore help, but try and try and then try some more! Suddenly you will become an accidental-expert Wink

It's more about how it sounds, and less about rules.

Well there is lots of rules, and I dont know them all. I getting a lot better at modulation after analyzing Chopin and trying and failing Razz I used 4hours to get a 8bar harmony"setup" ending with a Possible modulation as well as it would fit as a leading back, After I had already led the voice to the relative major via chromaticism Razz That sounded corky Razz hehe .. but yeah, 4 hours and I had what is now my main harmony in my piece which Im creating atm Smile Testing and failing!

And yeah, there is rules!!!! BUT, a big but here:

Beethoven:
"I only learn the rules so I know how to break them" Wink

Its how well you know how to break the rules that separates you from a poor, good or genius composer Smile
