I wondered the same thing. However, my guess is that after setting himself up to be the next Mozart "why doesn't the Chicago Symphony Orchestra play my work?", he couldn't stand being told that his symphony was not up there with the greats.

You left one of the final comments for him - what did it say ?
My last post on his topic was truly constructive, I think. Same as the other posts by other members. That he left because he felt his music could be stolen here sounds possible, yet hilarious.
In retrospect maybe some of us were a bit harsh. It just goes against everything I hold true to believe that one's music deserves to be played by the great orchestras, without serving a very monotonous apprentiship with minor ensembles and local music groups first...slowly working your way up as you improve your craft. Anybody who takes the former view is almost setting themselves up to be knocked down, and I feel that is what maybe happened here.
Did he die?

Like people ask on those Failvideos.
Yes, I feel that the process of writing for minor, and also less musically skilled groups is a good practice to learn how to deal with bigger ones...on one hand, professional ensembles will make less mistakes, but then again, it's much easier to understand what's easy and what's not easy for an instrument to play or an ensemble to rehearse with a less professional ensemble.

It's not only the practical side of things...it's more the assumption that you can just "jump to the top" on the strength of your music, and then wonder why your music isn't being considered by these top orchestras. Life just isn't like that.
Just wanted to briefly address the "stealing music" thing. It IS a common misconception that if the music isn't a download then it can't be stolen. A lot of audio products (like Bias Peak and Toast) quite happily tout the ability to record from any music stream on the Internet. So yes if your music is up online in any form then not only can it be stolen but it's incredibly easy to do so.

Don't think it was worth someone leaving though.
So what if someone steals your shitty mp3 from myspace or soundclick? Whoever steals the music will go through a lot of pains in order to figure out chords, melodies and all the stuff contained in an orchestral composition, which was the kind of stuff Phillip was writting.
... or will simply sell it themselves on line and you might never find out about it.

Lots of people are happy to steal mp3s and re-use them.

I'm not judging the action of removing the mp3s I'm just saying that if your music is online in any form then it's very easy to steal. Some of my music is online no doubt. Stuff that I actually want to make money from I don't post online.
