Music Composers Unite!
I've got the day ahead of me. I'll use the time to get into a new Bossa Nova composition. I'm building basic sections by recording elec guitar parts, with a MIDI drum accompaniment. At this point I'm focusing on the basic structure, while trying various ideas as I improvise and then refine details- riffs, phrases, etc. Sometimes a motif can appear out of nowhere and I'm sure this happens for most composers.…Continue
I am working on uploading my music in an audible way. It should be possible!! Anyway, if I'm done, I really would like to know what you all think about the music. I didn't compose for a long time yet, or at least not at a row. I have been writing for a while, stopped, started, stopped, started, oh well, you get the meaning I guess. So any advise or critic would be greatly welcome!! Just anything.
My previous blogs all were quite negative, first there was a war with the computer than some complaining about the current state of affairs in the music business.
Today I want to be positive for a change and it's quite easy to do so. I'm currently enjoying a holiday at the aegean sea cost with beautiful weather and being in the company of my lovely girlfriend. The only thing that I miss is making music. Unfortunately I'm not really able to write without some help from my ears so the…Continue
Today I am still wondering about what to do with the music that should be uploaded on my page. The sound is really bad yet.
Also I am wondering how get to know more about Balkan music. I am thinking about going for some groups. Must be somewhere in Amsterdam, I would guess.
What interests me most in music. That is a thought that has been a long while in my mind, but doesn't have a satsfactory answer yet. Do you also have that? I am thinking maybe I like too much, and I should…Continue

My name is Tamara Weessies. So Hyun Jung is my Korean name, which I use as a composer. I am a professional recorder player from Amsterdam, Holland. I teach a lot, play in an ensemble, mainly Renaissance music, and am composing. Although I haven't composed a lot yet, I really am happy to join this site. My main goal right now as a composer is religious music and traditional music, mainly the Balkan. I also love polyfonic music, which is why I also love playing Renaissance…Continue
it's not a composition by me so it's not on dissection, but just a link to me murdering diana ross. admittedly I've never had a viola lesson in my life, so any string players please comment. however, this does help me to understand the instrument better than reading a text book.

Yea, I understand it's a lot of legal jargon and our entire industry has been crafted over the last century to be completely confusing and to obfuscate paths to enlightenment for the layman, usually the composers, songwriters and musicians who slave away at this art and craft. But try. REALLY try hard to understand this stuff. Understanding the DMCA is the very first step to understanding what this new world is all about and understanding how you may or may not make a living from your music…Continue
Already a while ago I realised that I actually got used to the idea that even if I become a 'hit' composer ( and within the edm scene I already managed to score some 'hits' ) I will still be earning peanuts compared to even 11 years ago when I started releasing music.
A lot of people are considering music to be 'free' and say that composers, musicians and all other creators should create for the love of creating, l'art pour l'art.
If we would live in some utopian world , let's…Continue
The title is just to invite criticisms and I am posting my works here...
I would take up the replies constructively...
And finally are these good enough???!!!!
I have a quite capable machine as my main DAW, recent quadcore processor, loads of RAM, great RME soundcard so for a while I have been living without any real workflow problems like for example having to bounce tracks or working with unacceptable latency.
Of course this made me overconfident because when I was setting up a new orchestral template I was not holding back in any way. One after the other massive multisample got loaded in, spiced with the necessary convolution reverbs and…Continue
I just finished recording an excellent vocalist- Darl Chryst
She's a true professional with a great expressive voice. The session only required a little over an hour.…Continue
Everyone knows what a 'composer' is. The definition is general and inclusive rather than narrow and specific.
: one that composes; especially : a person who writes music
Yes- it's that simple and it's a definition…Continue
