Counterpoint in Composering – Third Species

Six times through Third Species. I find it interesting how hard it is for me to NOT repeat a note in my 1:1 writing no matter where that 1:1 voice is. 4:1:CF (4:1 soprano, 1:1 middle, CF bass) Assessment: I really used the “hit the downbeats and fill in from there” approach. Don’t know that it […]

Summer ad Parnassum (4:1 Ionian)

4:1 Above Cantus What I like: I like the ease at which I can produce these things now. When I started this podcast, none of these ideas were new and foreign but there were a few details that were revelations to me (like not allowing neighbor tones *grumble grumble*). Now that I’m done with the […]

Summer ad Parnassum (4:1 Aeolian)

4:1 Above Cantus What I like: I like the first half of this a lot. I had tremendous troubles with measures 3 and 4 since I was hoping beyond hope to have a cambiata in measure 4. This reinforces my “make a plan and you’ll only have to rebel against your plan” lessons that I […]

Summer ad Parnassum (4:1 Phrygian)

4:1 Above Cantus What I like: I like stepwise motion and this thing has two, count them TWO full octave scale runs. And a cambiata. The few leaps that happen are well timed and quite refreshing. What I don’t like: Are these scales signaling a lack of creativity? I think I need more skips to […]

Summer ad Parnassum (4:1 Dorian)

It has been a while, I took a week off to do some other projects (mostly sewing). But I’m back in action. Woo. 4:1 Above Cantus What I like: This one is okay. I did some last minute revisions when I realized that the first four measures had a range of a perfect 4th. I […]
