Welcome to MJ
This is impressive for an 8 year old. I can see why your dad is so proud. I would be too. Keep giving us interesting pieces like this one and you'll be a star in no time.
Peace
Guy

This is really cool.
I like the instruments you chose a lot. This would work really well as a soundtrack for a movie.
Keep it up.

I agree
It's a really great choice of instruments, I also like the randomness of the key strokes - like a parade with a dragon.

Hi
You have a good ear for different instrument sounds, and how they'll sound good together. A good way to make music sound even more oriental is to use only the black keys (that's called the pentatonic scale), and make a repeating pattern using one note at a time. Keep experimenting and post some more songs when you have time!

Thank You
Dear Kristyjo,
Thank you for telling me about the pentatonic scale. I think I will do my music the way I do it, but thank you for suggesting.

Welcome to Macjams!
I hope your dad lets you back on the computer soon, so you can share more music with us. At 8 years old, you're showing a lot of promise. Though it might be wise to try out some of the ideas people are pushing your way - they can be very useful. For instance, there's no reason that using the pentatonic scale can't be combined with your own method of inputting keys, otherwise it can just sound like a bit of a mess.
Don't get me wrong, that's pretty much how I compose mine as well, but there is a difference between total randomness and organised chaos. You definitely seems to have an instinctive knowledge of which musical instruments fit together, and in fact, your music reminds me of my early years, but knowing how chords fit together, and which notes sound good together can only help you in the long run. I'll tell you how I put mine together, and you can choose wether you want to use these ideas yourself or not, but I hope you can learn something from it. When I sit down at the software, I think about the melody first - what is the one line that is going to hold the whole piece together? You can change it so two or more instruments can bear the melody, if you want, but I usually just start off with the one. I tend to go with my instincts on this one, the progressions seem to come quite naturally most of the time, but it's basically pressing random keys and seeing how it sounds. Once I have melody, I then decide on a supporting line. This is usually very simple - one or two notes, usually built into a chord with the note in the melody line. So say I had an 'e' in the melody line, I would usually back that up with a 'c' 'g' or 'a' in the supporting line. Best way to try this out is to work out different chords on a piano - see what notes sound good together. I then put in a 'fill' line, which is something between the two - not powerful enough to overflow the melody, but not just a supporting line, either. That can take a range of forms, it's up to you. Anyway, I've rambled enough. I hope that's useful to you, and that you've learnt something from it. I look forward to hearing more pieces from you in future - you certainly do have potential.

this has a cohesive feel...
...of a symphony's noodling exercise (or just them making sure they're all in tune) prior to performing a classical piece

want to hear more!!!!!!!

Hey!
Great first post. You have some big shoes to fill boy-o. Not only physically, but sonically. But, you are off to a great start! This is crazy man. Really out there. But, I'm feeling sleep now, so I gotta go.
