Chopin Prelude in G

Author RobertoD

While I am struggling against a annoying influence, I have pledged to understand the basic concepts of Synfire. And, frankly, my surprise was great when I saw that the software is able to rebuild, among the countless possible variants, also the original writing of the Prelude in G major of Chopin. Far from being a perfect job, mine, I was amazed: Synfire can therefore enter the head of the Masters of the past and, at least as far as the tonal harmony is concerned, to build whole compositions "in the way of" (Chopin, Beethoven, Schumann and s.o.)?


In the. cognac file attached I used Native Instruments "The Giant" piano and an Altiverb preset.

You probably meant influenza, not influence ;-) Gesundheit! Wish you a quick recovery.

Thanks for sharing your work. The way you are using container structure to build a motif looks promising. Did you know you can make a snapshot of a nested container? It's nice for cleaning up a complex structure. You can always condense a group of containers into one.

Thank you Andre: if nothing else, today I have no more fever. It's certainly merit of the commitment made in the study of Synfire :-)

It took me some time to understand the concept of "container", but more or less I think I understood it. Rather than a software, Synfire looks like a working method, and it's completely different from a DAW, it takes time...

EDIT: yes, influenza, indeed :D

This four-bars sample from Bruckner's Symphony n. 4 is my first attempt to assign Synfire the task of creating autonomously a countermelody, not in Bruckner's score, in Violins I and II. And I have to say that, although the task was elementary, the result is encouraging. Bravo.

When the main melody rests, the counter melody should be active.And when the main melody is active, the counter melody should rest. This will be resulting in them complimenting eachother.
