How i see music.

Hello,

When peripetie by Schoenberg was first composed, many people disliked this music as it was seen as a sin to have the augmented 4th chord. However, time passed and i studied this piece two years ago as a renowned piece of music.

I mean, if you think about it, without musical change we would have never gotten Classical, Baroque or romantic. We'd still be sitting around a fire clapping our hands.

People like different kinds of music, today, pop, rock, jazz, R&B, country etc.. And everyone says that the style that isn't the one they like, it is 'not music', even when some other people like the 'music'. (if you've ever read 'youtube' comments, you'll know).

So why do we have to stick to 'music theory' when the world of music is constantly changing?

You may never know, changing the rules of music might make a world famous style. So what I'm saying is, you've just got to keep trying new things and hope for the best.

I hope this helps to explain my music a little more and as to why you won't be seeing any 'normal' considered types of music (apart from by chance).

Anyway, thank-you for reading.

Thanks for your explanation. It is certainly legitimate to invent new forms and styles of music, and if you would be able to compose like Schoenberg, it would be great! But I think we amateur composers are already busy enough to understand the established forms and learn how to use them. In my opinion, new things would be better left to the professionals. I do not say that "Looking for a rose" is a bad piece. It has a certain charm. But making good music is already difficult with conventional forms, and it is certainly far more difficult, if you additionally begin to invent new constructions. In any case I wish you good luck with your compositions!

I understand Bach's musical development was inspired by new thinking in science so why not follow him? I think there is a place for questioning and experimenting in music as well as other areas.  Whether or not I like a piece will remain subjective. Whether a piece is musically valid is another matter which is, I think, where music theory is useful. Do we validate a piece against the rules to which it adheres, or go with the test of time.

Good luck Shadow5.
