Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Hey Composers!

You may have noticed there's been some pockets of anxiety and offensive behavior along with our growing propensity for trolling/derailing. Lots of stuff to make it tough on our little forum!

I believe that everyone here is good people, with good intent, and interested in developing as a musician/composer here. A lot of points get lost or created because text is very difficult to read emotion and sarcasm. There are also a few who have let the intensity of who we are cause themselves strife and that spills out into their writing.

I think one thing that might be super good for the forum, and would be a lot of fun also would be if we joined a Google Hangout and do a video conference call. We can just get together and meet each other, face to face, and at least initially just meet and have small talk.

So, I will be hosting a Composers' Forum Google Hangout video conference call this coming Wednesday, 4/27/16 at 3:30pm eastern time!

I will post a link here once I start the stream and all are welcome to join me! I'd really like to get to know you, and I am hoping you would like that too! If the time isnt great dont worry! If we can get even 3 or 4 to join this time and it works well, I will try to do them like bi-weekly maybe. I hope to see you Wednesday!

I bet you will find that most people you have met in text are all very similar to you, and that you have a lot in common and will be a really fun way to hang for an hour! Come on come on, dont worry, nobody will judge that HUGE OMG WART ON YOUR NOSE OMG hahaha ;-) really it will be low key and just chill a min. I think you can join voice only too if you dont want to share vid

Do I have to put my teeth in...???

Not necessary! Just enunciate. Very. Slowwwly :D

Chris, it's an interesting proposition, but I for one don't have any skype

capabilities, the up side being that I don't worry about spinach in my teeth. lol

I'd be happy to 'chat along' with y'all', but can't do the face to face thing.    Peace     RS

Bob, I still have a 1996 model Nokia phone... and only on my 2nd battery. lol

Honestly, I want no part of 'the new millenium'. You may ask why, but suffice it

to say, I have my reasons. I have never had a credit card and never had a

mortgage, but designed, built and own, my own house. I have no debt either.

Call me old fashioned, but it's deeper than that. Yes, I'm comfortably different.    RS

ps- no offense intended, but I will stick to my principles regardless of current trends

So . . . 1930 GMT? I think? Timezones confuse me. But if I really can use my gmail account and iPhone, after spending an hour on the most flattering lighting of course, that could be good.

Yes! Im pretty sure gmt is eastern +4 right now. You can do on phone, you will need the google hangouts app:
Hangouts by Google, Inc.
https://appsto.re/us/KUVwM.i

There is similar for android, other phones

Or you can do it in any browser. You only need a gmail acct. if you have a csmera and want to share you can choose video, or just voice, maybe even just text too? Not sure on that but i think so

Actually, and truthfully, thanks for the insight.

Bob, ouch........ but in the spirit of camera-derie, my point was that

I ain't got none of them new fangled de-vices. :<{    and... you are seriously

baiting me into a side discussion, for clarity of fact vs. fiction.

Maybe at another time, in another thread  amigo, but presently the ice is

a bit thin. :>}

In the mean time I will look forward to meeting you and others here- at some point.

Lets keep talking about this Weds at 330p eastern 730p GMT GOOGLE HANGOUUUUUUUT wuhu!!
In about an hour!!

I'd call this a success. Nice one!
