  • Three Part Invention

    This is  a short piano invention in 3 parts using a chromatic motive that morphs into a diatonic motive. The piece is limited to 3 parts throughout:

    Notice that though the opening motive is chromatic, I control the balance between consonance and dissonance carefully. Dissonant does not necessarily mean chromatic, and chromatic doesn't necessarily mean dissonant. The piano is the physical-modeled piano by PianoTeq.

     

  • Hi Jerry,

    I really enjoyed this piece. It displayed excellent control of the language used and was a joy to listen to.

    I know your philosophy re sample based music and so I wont mention the obvious - suffice to say that the 3 lines of counterpoint worked well on the piano sound. Funny that practicalities  didn't bother me in this context......a measure of how much the music got to me.

    (edit)...ok it's a piano duet.....   :-)

    best

    Mike.

    Hi Mike, hope all is well with you.  Glad you enjoyed the piece.  What do you mean by a piano duet?  I am guessing you mean that one play might have a hard time with it?

    Best.

  • yeah..some big wide spaces in there. Listened again and I love the Bachian studious feel to it, it's a great piece Jerry.
