When most people think of a composer, they imagine someone sitting in a dusty attic with a grand piano, a big white wig, and the year is 1800. That might have been accurate back then, but the modern composer is just like you and me. In fact, I am one. In this course, I’ll show you the techniques I use for writing music in a variety of styles and situations. I’ve worked with major American orchestras, film studios, and video game designers, so I’ve got more than a little experience. I’m also a Ph.D. in music composition and a university professor (of music composition). Recently I was named as a semi-finalist for the Grammy Foundation’s Music Educator of the Year award because of my in-person university classes. Now I’m taking those classes to Udemy in an online format in order to reach more students and give them the joy of Music Theory.I’m planning on making several “sections” of this class, and this is Part 2. As the class grows, we will go deeper and deeper into my techniques. This class is focused on creating a sense of Tension and Release: one of the most fundamental concepts in music composition.In this class, we will cover:My background, and listen to some of my musicWhy Tension and Release?Tools of the trade: SoftwareTools of the trade: Pencils and fine paperLong Term and Short Term TensionsUsing Form for Tension and ReleaseForms that Create DramaSonata FormThe 4 Elements of FormExample: Mozart, Moonlight SonataComposing with Sonata FormModern Uses of Sonata FormExample: Muse, Butterflies and HurricanesTension and Release with MeterCompound MetersMeter SignaturesAlternating Compound and Duple MetersUsing Rhythm for Altering ExpectationsRhythmic PatternsPattern Obfuscation Example: Philip Glass, Truman Show SoundtrackExample: Allen, AporiaUsing Harmony for Tension and ReleaseConsonance and DissonanceProlonging DominantEmphasized ResolutionPedal TonesMoving “Pedal Tones”Example: Aphex Twin, VentolinCombining Multiple TechniquesExample: Mozart, Sonata in CExample: Allen, Angle of ReposeFilm Music and Tension CuesComposing for FilmsAnd much, much, more!
