anybody in here compose there own music/transcribe
on: September 06, 2003, 05:23:22 PM

I like to listen to melodies from movies, tv and try to compose.
would like to develope original music but still no success on a good piece.

Done some Horowitz stuff, but that really doesn't count, heh.

I do.  I compose for my students and transcribe songs for the piano and arrange advanced hymnal arrangements.  You can listen to them at my sibeliusmusic website and hear some of my playing too.  Not a great recording.  I used a tape recorder.

Where you talking to me in refernce to the piano. If so i sorry to tell you that unfortunatlly the file I sent you was compleattly created on the computor and also my level of playing isn't quite good anough to actually preform it. I can play most of it but the middle gets a bit too fast. However i play an old Roseman upright with nice brass candle stick holeders which has a lovely tone but rather heavy action.
Yeh I live in England now and was born hear although I spent seven yeatrs in france.

I don't fancy myself a composer, nor have I even taken the trouble to devise and write out transcriptions.  The creative activity I do excel at (because I have a good ear) is musical paraphrases.  This talent is both good and bad.  It's good in that I can re-create a rendition of a piece without ever opening the sheet music.  The bad news is that if I really enjoy my paraphrase, then I might never get around to learning the real piece.  

For example, I have Earl Wild's excellent piano transcriptions of a couple of Rachmaninoff's songs, "In the Silent Night" and "Floods of Spring", but have never found the time for them.  (I have played both of the original accompaniments though.)  Because practice time is very limited, I prefer to invest instead in more serious repertoire of higher priority.  The solution?  I created two fine paraphrases of those songs.  Admittedly they're not as clever, virtuosic, or as idiomatic as Wild's transcriptions, but still most satisfying to play for my own amusement all the same.  
Interpreting music means exploring the promise of the potential of possibilities.
