I don't know if any of you younger guys are interested in what I'm about to offer, but here's the situation in broad strokes:
My current editor /Finale guru , Steve Sample ( also a member here ) has begun to get very busy with his own personal projects, and has requested a furlough from helping me with my recording and publishingwork in the coming year. Since my familiarity with Finale has heretofore been almost totally with thewriting and inputting side, my knowlege of the printing and page layout functions is quite rudimentary.( I can get something laid out and printed, but it takes me forever and my results are not up to what I'd call professional standards. -besides, I feel my time is better spent economically generating new material than in spending the necessary time to master the "other side" of the Finale system. )
Lazy ? You betcha! ..but having said that, here's the deal:
I'm looking for a young upcoming composer who is fairly expert in the editing and finishing functions of Finale 2010 to assist me in preparing PDF files from my scores at a professional level for my publisher
Walrus Music. In return, I'll offer my services as an arranging -orchestrating advisor /coach for those of you who haven't had the experience with writing for live orchestras that I've had the past 45 years. I am fairly familiar with almost all styles of electro /acoustic arranging -from jazz to full film orchestra.
There will most likely not be much tight deadline work involved , but reasonable response time, enthustiastic participation, and professional looking work is a must.
So: if any of y'all here ( or your friends ) fit these specs, and would be interested in exploring this
arrangement ( no pun intended ) further, contact me here -or respond by email :
.. and we can discuss all this in greater detail.
