Thanks for the 'Welcome', Tyler. I'm starting to like this place - a lot. Members seem like good people - w/ just one exception so far. Considering the state of online forums these days, that's pretty damned good.

Looking forward to more interaction.

Talk to you later,

Symphony No. 2: Ocean Symphony (First Draft)

Posted on October 4, 2015 at 10:42am 15 Comments

This is my second symphony, subtitled Ocean Symphony. This is just the first draft so there is still a lot of editing needed to be done. The movements represent a depth zone of the ocean and are as followed:

  1. Epipelagic Zone
  2. Mesopelagic Zone
  3. Bathypelagic Zone
  4. Abyssopelagic Zone

Each movement is to represent both the marine life that inhabit each zone as well as the ocean conditions unique to each zone. 

Let me know what your first…

In the process of studying for a final exam I decided to make a sample lesson that I would make for my online theory course, because what better way to ensure you know something than to teach it. 

This is a very very rough draft of a lesson but its up for anyone to read and learn. Enjoy.

negative portrayals or coding of Classical music in media

Hey long time no post Been having something on my mind, namely classical music representation in media. If you watch enough TV or movies (and read enough books to some extent) when classical music or any of the performing fine arts (orchestras, band, choir, ballet, etc.) are passively represented in the narrative of the story in question. Now what I mean by passive represented I mean it is not completely integral to the story (may be a random fact of a character(s), a background setting, or set…See More
