This is an extremely simple song, only two bars of music. The thing that makes it two minutes long is that the part constantly repeat eachother after a different number of measures. Here's the breakdown:

Bells/Violins: Repeated after 0 measures (continuous)

Tenor/Bass Piano: Repeated after 2 measures

Bass/Tubas: Repeated after 3 measures

Sopranos/ high winds: Repeated after 4 measures

The parts dance around eachother repetatively until 60 measures later when they come together at the same time.

I know this piece is repetative, but its a concept I'd like to develop and master in time. Give me some feedback if you have the time




I love this concept of music and timing.
It is really hard alot of the time to accomplish something like this without it sounding too gargled or what-not, but you did this really well.

Yes, it was a bit repetitive but I mean for what it was it was still really good and I can appreciate the idea you were flowing with.

the only thing I wanted to hear that I didnt was some percussion, but thats probably just the drummer in me saying that.

great work

hey thanks again for the review.

This did take alot of work as far as the notes themselves go, i mustve gone through atleast twelve different variations.

The repetition is kinda off, but its also the point of the song so it kinda acts as a double edged sword. Im still trying to come up with some ways to have the same concept, just less repetative.

After I read your review, i took a look at the music and noticed that I actually forgot about the timpani part. You can hear it on the 4th beat of the first measure, I just simply forgot to work it into the rest of the song...sorry bout that lol
