10:27AM - An Old Treasure Unearthed

Hi,

Hope all is going well. I just wanted to let everyone know about a recently launched website that may be of interest called Piano Lessons with Master Teachers. If you click the black and white photograph on the home page, it will take you to a collection interviews with concert pianists from the early 1900's, such as Paderewski and Ernest Schelling. It's a very good read, and it's all free material. I hope it can be a good resource for some of the community members.

Take care,
Eugene

8:47AM - Million Dollar Music Composition

The purpose of this Livejournal Post is to draw your attention to my Music Composition Project within a vast pool of composers networked by the Internet:
Million Dollar Music Composition
When you visit this webiste you will notice that the development of the Million Dollar Composition concept has been stimulated by the success of Alex Tew's Milliondollarhomepage. I have taken up the concept and added more than just a twist. I developed it further into a broader concept combining the advertising-by-the-pixel idea with another creative dimension/universe: music composition as content!

As a by-product I (think I) invented a new concept in music composition (at least I haven't heard of it before): I provide a platform that allows various people worldwide to create a piece of music within a remote team, networked together using the Internet!

This concept of collaborative music composition contradicts the standard way of music composition. Usually this is a solitary activity: most musical compositions are the work of a single person or a limited group of people interacting personally, trying to satisfy only their own distinctive musical taste. However, the contribution to the Million Dollar Music Composition requires a completely different mindset, a team-based approach. Collaboration for composers can be a very productive endeavour. It produces music which would have unlikely been produced individually and also obliges the composers to make conceptual compromises they might not ususally have to do. It frees up the creative spirit as each artist has to let go of their individual vision to accomodate the thinking of the other. The OTHER is the crucial element in collaboration, it not alone designates the other composer but also implicates the unseen, inexperienced, unknowable, unthinkable and inconceivable of the former. I am really looking forward to the outcome, as the composers are advertisers at the same time. Thus, they have to consider the audience as they want to reach out to a larger audience and attract them to the music as well as to their advertisements.

Tip: On my Music Composition Resources subpage Music Composition Resources you will find Internet resources covering many aspects of music composition.

If you like it, feel free to tell (or email to) your friends, or even put a link to the Million Dollar Music Composition from your website.

Best regards
Martin Stein


I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing YOUR contributions or your opinions here.

10:55AM - Suggestions?

I am in an AP Music Theory class at my high school and for the final project I have to study nationalist music.

I also have been assigned a project to write a composition in the style of Bartok. I thought that it might work to structure the melody around an American folk tune (I'm trying to use Big Rock Candy Mountain) but I am having some trouble deciding how to structure the harmonies and how dissonant I should make the piece.

What are your opinions?

(x-posted a bunch, sorry.)

3:02AM - Electronic keyboard?

So I'm thinking of buying a decent electronic keyboard for myself. The one I have right now is a child's toy--2.5 octaves worth of small keys with eight instruments, but no more than one note can sound at a time.

I'm looking for something that has the following characteristics:

+ the long, rectangular kind that can sit on a desk (not a stand-up kind; my dorm room is rather small)
+ range: about 5 octaves, or greater
+ a nice selection of standard instruments
+ ability to play as many notes at once as I desire (or at least a decent number, say 8 or so)
+ pedals not necessary; if it/they happen to come with the keyboard, it/they should be just a little block with a wire connecting to the keyboard (since the keyboard will be on my desk)
+ touch sensitivity: not necessary, although I'd appreciate the feature (however, I've used ones before that are way too sensitive and thus make a farce of my playing) <-- it would be nice if I could adjust the sensitivity, if it did come with it, although such a request would up the price a bit more...
+ I care absolutely nothing for those demo rhythms or tunes or whatnot. (I messed with a keyboard once that got me lost when I noticed that, while trying to pick an instrument, I actually picked some demo tune.) If two keyboard differ purely by this feature, I'll definitley take the one that doesn't have it if that one costs less.
+ also, having any plug by which it could be hooked up (likely through some adapter) to a computer, as MIDI input (for, say, composing music), would be REALLY nice (although not required)

Would anyone have an estimate as to how much something like this would cost?

If you have any specific models in mind, and would like to recommend them, that would be quite helpful and appreciated. :)

Also, if you have any ideas of how I might be able to find one used, feel free to volunteer them. (For reference, I'm in the Boston/Cambridge area of Massachusetts, USA.)

10:52PM - Have you heard this song?

Does anyone know what this song is, and/or where it came from?

(a fragment of the refrain, sound): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_refrain.mid
(a fragment of the refrain, picture): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_refrain.png
(a bit of the piano solo intro, sound): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_intro.mid
(a bit of the piano solo intro, picture): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_intro.png

I ran into this song four and a half years ago, in some piano+voice songbook that a friend bought in Hong Kong.

I have no clue as to what the song is named, what it's about, what the original instrumentation was, when it was written, where it was written, who wrote it, etc..

I do however remember (1) the exact appearance of the first two bars, (2) the first phrase and plus a bit of the second phrase of the refrain melody, and (3) the refrain's left-hand pattern.

I also remember that the song was in B-flat major, but ended verses in an incomplete cadence in G minor, so that the refrain could begin noticeably in G minor and end up back in B-flat major. I loved this feature.

Interestingly, I later wrote my own song-without-words based on the refrain of this song.

Edit: mentioned that the intro is instrumenal, not sung.

Hey everyone!

I was thinking, to mark the 5th aniversery of 9/11, what could i do. So i sat down and thought about it and this is what i came up with.

What could we as a group of composers do together to mark the event?

I was thinking that those who were interested could all compose a movement of a suite, or something to that effect. im open to ideas. but i would like to do something. if anyone else is interested in the project please let me know!

thanks,
john

9:58PM - theory/comp grad school advice

I am currently an undergrad studying to get my bachelor's in Music Performance (guitar), and I am really interested in studying theory and composition at the grad level.

Here's my questions :
- What should I do now to ensure that I have a good shot at this?
- What should I do now to prepare myself?
- anything words of advice?
I'm not so much interested in "which school is best?" at this point as I am "What will prepare me?"

Ultimately, I've love to get a job composing for films and such. However, more realistically, I'd like to teach Theory at a university.


Thanks for your help in advance.

Well, I suppose I should make a "Hello" post to everyone...

My name is Kevin. I've been a composer for about... 8 years now... since my first piece at least (oh, how I have evolved since then). I write for pretty much everything. My most recent composition is a piano solo. (Now for the bragging) I am a twice first place champion in my state for composition. Once second place. I do a lot of different type of composition, I really can't say a style... though I am heavily influenced by Metal, and the baroque era. Though pretty much everything instrumental (aside from Jazz) influences me greatly.

Most of my orchestral music, as well as my piano compositions reside on my computer. However... I do have two sites where my compositions can be found. One is a jam project, and the other is my band.

http://www.soundclick.com/normaljeans/
http://www.blindshotrock.tk

Those are the two sites... Anywho... I feel that's a pretty good narcissitic introduction of myself... so... yeah. I'm done.

1:05PM - Software suggestions?

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good music program that you enjoy? I would like a program that creates the most realistic sounding MIDIs as possible, and then can turn them into good-quality MP3s. Thanks for any suggestions!

5:47PM - VST synths wanted

I'm moving back to using Logic, so could anyone tell me about VST synths? I don't seem to find the information I seek anywhere. I'm focusing on electropop and triphop-ish stuff so I appreciate it a lot if you can tell me about synths that have instruments fitting mentioned styles. Atmosphere and Trilogy are in my knowledge, but I seek more. Thank you in advance!
