Definitely not for everyone... but, sounds so natural to others. Okay, I stole a title from an old standard song. Don't think anyone will confuse this with that one.

That's cool, but I wish there was a power chord at the start of each 8th note arpeggio...

Thanks 9ne! I'm afraid my power chord days are gone forever. I barely have enough power to get up in the morning.

Very spooky and ideal for setting the atmosphere in a movie. I enjoyed it, which surprised me. I was exposed to atonal music as a child and embarrassed my father by booing at the end of the first act of a Schoenberg opera. I think maybe what works with a violin just grates when it's people singing. Of course, being 13 at the time, I maybe just didn't have the patience. smile

I like it, but there must be some underlying chord going on there, sounds like a dissonant scale, maybe one chord vamping on top. Sounds more like a bizarre scale. but it does the job, it doesn't let you settle in keeps you unnerved.

Its funny I wrote a piece on guitar that I never did anything with, which is the case of hundreds of my things. And I was playing it at guitar center,along comes a guy...hey what is that...... What's what.... What you were playing, I just love atonal music..... Pretend I know what atonal means...I do now.... I don't know I was just fiddling around a bit.

I was riffing on a b flat, which I picked notes like the open d g and e. So u had this b flat bass, with a d, g and e picking back and forth, then I slid down to c and did the same thing , started moving the position to like f# and eventually it was just the bass moving around but those notes don't all play nice .but it sounded cool as he'll.... Little did he know that was the first time I even did that, I went home and worked on it, and then, it sat quietly like alot of my stuff

I'm sure there is a theorist out there who would argue there is a chord to be had behind those notes making it....not atonal but tonal.

What's interesting about your piece the violin gives it a calming presence . if you choose to focus in that you don't hear the piano.

Cool, a power chord would probably work over that it does on mine!

Thanks Fde! Well, maybe at least the broader meaning of atonality: "music that does not conform to the system of tonal hierarchies that characterized classical European music between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries" - which it doesn't conform to. To answer whether this falls into atonal music such as Schoenberg, I'd have to do a complete theory analysis of this piece, which would be hypocritical because of my signature: "Stop analyzing; just compose the damn thing!" So whether a broader meaning or narrower meaning, I won't explore it. I will say that the violin part gives the false presentation of tonality.The piano by itself sounds atonal to me - but like dissonance, a pleasure to my ears.

Best, John smile
