Default please post contemporary classical/experimental/conceptual pieces here

Hi, I have noticed since jeranx did a post a few days ago that some Reaper users are making more contemporary classical / non-pop / experimental / conceptual / whatever and so on music rather than heavy metal / blues / grungy stuff etc. But that sort of music does not get much exposure here - in fact I did not think anyone here would make or like such music until jeranx's post. So I thought it might be a good idea to collect such music in the music subforum, under a single thread so that it does not get lost amongst the other music posts. Hopefully different people will post, that is the idea. I hope it is not just me this one post But if it is then that is fine.

I start with a short piece of mine for guitars from about 10 years ago. I used two guitars - one classical and one electric. Both use non traditional playing techniques (although I started playing prepared guitar 40 years ago so they are not so non-traditional for me It is not the most moving or brilliant piece ever, just a few simple gentle miniatures for guitar run in to each other

This is a fun piece that is great to perform in concert - not done in Reaper, but I have performed this - though I am not part of this performance

Around that time Eno wrote his lovely and witty lyrics using a technique he adapted from performing Kurt Schwitters - this reminds me of that

Smueske from this forum would fit here, he's posting alien sounding microtonal pieces from time to time. Almost sane sounding, but folds your brain like an origami. Can't find working links though .

D. Shostakovich. Quartet No. 8 (I think it's classical enough )

Score was created with MuseScore 2, performed with XSample, edited in Reaper.

Nicely done - I bought X-samples recently and think it very impressive, more useful than many of the libraries that seem more designed for commercial film music.
You've done a great job, very musical. Must have taken a while to get all the articulations! I'm actually enjoying having this run in the background like it were a concert broadcast!
Shostakovitch has been getting increased plays on the radio in my country over the last few years for some reason - it is interesting that he is considered a composer of contemporary or modern music when of course he died about 40 years ago. Once all that art was labelled "modern" and "contemporary" as genre terms it really created some problems for everyone after. "Current" music just doesn't have much cachet

Hi Eddy.

After all, I do some too.

My type, my taste, not everyone's.

Bye

Thank you, Eddy.
Actually this is a remix of a piece that was completed in 2012 with Sonar 3.1.1 with XSample for Kontakt 2 (that was quite an expensive investment those days). Not all articulations worked as advertised - I had to edit "play" instruments myself. So, if you encounter something that doesn't work, let me know. I have edited versions of the instruments for Kontakt 5.
Reaper was exceptionally useful for synchronizing video (captured with Debut) and audio.
