Composers' Corner

A place for music composers of all styles, types, etc. to share their compositions, arrangements, orchestrations, adaptations, and whatever else seems relevant.

If you like what you hear, reblog it! And add a little note. Spreading the awesomeness can only benefit all involved. =]

A note to submitters: if you so desire, send me a message with your name and website info, so that I can put it up on the "Contributing Composers" page. You can have a link go directly to your music from this blog!

Hey all, a Tumblrer by the name of pedlooo sent me this link. Pretty cool stuff! Check out this and his other piano works on his YouTube page.

So, nothing actually got linked to this submission, and the email address it was sent from apparently doesn’t exist. I did check it out, however, and a quick Google search brings you to the composer’s website, where you can indeed hear this particular composition as well as see a score. Very interesting stuff. Check it out.

There’s a link to a piece I’ve done :) It’d be great if you could post it as it’s being sent of to music conservatoires in September!
Thanks! :D

Nice! Sounds awesome dude! For the rest of you out there, I’d definitely give the beats up there a spin!

Finale playing my minor-key arrangement of The Water is Wide.

Shortly after an unexpected death, I arranged this piece. Many versions set to the tune of O Waly, Waly exist, and here, I imagine the text sung by Olivia Newton-John:

The water is wide, I cannot cross o’er,
And neither have I wings to fly.
Give me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row, my love and I.

A ship there is and she sails the sea.
She’s loaded deep as deep can be.
But not so deep as the love I’m in;
I know not if I sink or swim.

When cockle shells turn silver bells,
Then will my love come back to me?
When roses bloom in winter’s gloom
Then will my love return to me?
Then will my love return to me?
Return to me.

The lyrics remind me of Tolkein’s description of the White Shores, where beings sail into immortality and sometimes must part with loved ones in order to do so. Those departing eagerly anticipate this resting place, but it is a bittersweet moment for others. For that reason, I arranged this in a minor key, from the perspective of those who remain.

Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for the submission!

Hey all!

I am so, so sorry for the long hiatus…part of it comes from my trying to put together a wedding (April 27th!), part of it comes from Tumblr being a stupid little (noun) and deciding that I really didn’t need to know I had messages. It still doesn’t tell me.

Anyway, I’ve caught its sneaky little trick and will now be patrolling my inbox regularly. For all of you who’ve submitted/asked, they will now be posted/answered. Keep the questions and submissions coming! I’ll also be posting a couple of my own things here in a bit.

Hi, these are my compositions. Please keep in mind that Go Karting From Hell will be redone soon enough with more instruments! :)

I apologize for the slew of posts. I wanted to get them up quickly, though, because they’ve kind of been sitting there for a while. Enjoy all the new music, and keep those submissions coming!
