This video makes some interesting points about how different musicians interpret rhythms differently. Does anyone want to comment on this, I'm interested in the explanation of the Bernstein clip…Continue
"Hi Rafael, welcome to the forum. Your piece has a very nice sound and your score is easy to read, I think you have done very well in your first year. If you haven't already done so you might consider working with binary and ternary…"
"MIDI files can be very expressive and emotional, you can edit each note forward or backward in time by tiny increments which allows you to be very creative. DAWS have quantization, humanization and "groove generators" to do some of that…"
"Hi Luke, welcome to Composer's Forum.
There are a variety of approaches to recording a final product with virtual instruments, and inserting MIDI files exported from notation software into a DAW is one that a lot of composers do use.
"I'm not a violinist so perhaps someone else might explain this better.
You might want to maintain scoring consistency by using all sharps or all flats since there is no 'key' per se.

"I don't understand either but here's something. Sibelius notation software calls that symbol in your attachment 1-1/2 half-steps flat.
I'm not an expert at all but the only way ( I know of ) to flat a harmonic on a stringed…"
"Hi Matt - I enjoyed this, it has some placid predictable parts that are offset by some spicier stuff that makes a nice package. One way to approach adding interest is to insert variations of rhythm or harmony (or both) and there are many ways…"
"Hi Stephen, you have a great piece here, for me certainly it is educational. I love how you handle 5/4, it sounds natural with a twist, very cool. And a beautiful variety of harmony colors to hold our weak attentions. I'd say go for the…"
"Well done Gavin, I like that you are developing your own style especially rhythmically. It's nice to hear a piece that doesn't immediately remind me of other pieces. This piece is programmatic to my ear but it could be any…"
"I like your melodies and the harmonies that you use with them are good too, you have some nice colors. This is kind a theme and variations form which is cool. I'd like to hear more rhythmic variation in the left hand part, it's…"
"It seems from what I've read here on this forum that a lot of us end up with two midi versions, one for notation purposes and one for audio purposes.
Sibelius would never crowd notes like that unless you forced it to I don't think..…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
