Hey Izzy, thanks for the reply. I think the idea of two different sections sounds great (whether it's major, or not).

I think the fix in those bars that felt "accidental" to me has been covered nicely.

I'd be curious to see where your new section takes you. It can be surprisingly challenging to write something major that feels deep and developmental. I'll be excited to hear it. Keep me posted as you work. Thanks!

Hey Matt!

Just to let you know, none of the dynamics in the piece are for artistic purpose, but rather, so that I can hear all of the parts equally. My computer's speakers aren't the best for composing and my headphone jack is broken, haha.

Fixed the overall effect in those bars with the horn and the piano - it's supposed to be some sorta fugue thing, but I can see how it could sound like it's just wrong. I added more layers to try to help it out with being more obviously in tandem.

I'll get the rhythms as I keep working.

I'm sorry if I don't quite sound eloquent when it comes to this piece - normally I am much more well spoken when it comes to my intentions and my practices. I've just written four large pieces in the last few months and I feel a little drained and uninspired.

Dunno what the piece is about. Dunno what it's gonna turn into. Might just have a major section for the heck of it. Kinda like the idea of just two very different themes back to back that have nothing to do with each other, but that go together. More thought needs to be had.

Further bulletins as events warrant!

I am very aware that my piano part is impossible as of right now - I'm fixing that, and just adding more movement and parts in.
