๏ปฟ ๏ปฟย 

Need to write theme B next I think... looking forward to learning more about sonatas in tomorrow's class... ๐ŸŽตย 

Beethoven's 5th Inspiredย 

โœ“ same key signatureย 
ร— different time signatureย 
โœ“ same 3 repeating starting notesย 
ร— different pitch (tonic triad)ย 
โœ“ same down leap to 4th noteย 
ร— different pitch (tonic triad)ย 

mainly playing with motivic rhythm... augmentation, retrograde, etc. & letting strings be a bit like percussion... ๐Ÿ™‚

๏ปฟ ๏ปฟ

don't know much about composition rules but gave myself these for this music writing round...

โ€ข no slursย 
โ€ข no tiesย 
โ€ข no trillsย 
โ€ข no ornamentsย 
โ€ข only 1 note per hand at anytimeย 
โ€ข no more than 2 notes per bar in bass clefsย 
โ€ข no change of left hand rhythm (both clefs)ย 
โ€ข no identical measures anywhereย 
โ€ข voices must start an 8th note apart bottom up (first bar)ย 
โ€ข voices to end an 8th note apart bottom up (last bar)ย 
โ€ข no singable melody...

๏ปฟ Marc Sabatella ๏ปฟย mentioned about playability of this challenge so i kept that in mind as this piece unfolded... hence some of the rules above helped... ๐ŸŽต

inversion shortcut ??

thanks for the orchestral music livestream today Marc ๐Ÿ‘Š cool & lots of new2me tips! besides repeat, explode... is there an inversion button? for the duet challenge i'm thinking of flipping the melody upside down for the 2nd half of the piece... ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks
