The original Composer's Forum site was unfortunately closed down without warning. Although I'm trying to get it back on its feet again, the database and membership details have been lost. This means your old details won't work and you'll need to re-register. Sorry for all that but I do hope to see as many of you on here again as soon as possible.

David replied to David's discussion Cinderella
"Hi David -- much appreciated that you've given this a bash -- and even listened twice. One reason for choosing this eclectic selection of instruments was, as you say, that the story itself is quite old and in some ways it's perhaps easier to evoke…"

"I'm just a bit relieved that, as the discussion surrounds inspiration, it was God that got the prior mention.

Kristofer Emerig commented on Kristofer Emerig's blog post Tensor Fugue - an Example for the Unwary Aural Traveler
""one could envision a picture-to-sound translator that takes any 2D black-and-white image as input, and outputting the corresponding audio. Then your "score" would literally be a series of hieroglyphic-like scribbles, each representing some kind of…"

David Lilly replied to David's discussion Cinderella
"David, I must say that this is my favorite among the works of yours I've heard so far.  You have created a unique texture in terms of the instrumentation in this piece through your use of several less commonly found instruments (I admit, I had to…"

Jon Corelis replied to Jon Corelis's discussion Scottish Suite for Alto Flute and Cello
"Thanks very much for this reply. This is the kind of advice I find most valuable.

I actually wrote this originally for standard flute, but changed to alto for two reasons. First, some of the passages that are supposed to be poignant, especially…"

David replied to Ivor's discussion The Sun Machine - "more accessible"...slightly... 3 minutes
"when you're actually composing of course it's necessary to include all the staves and for a final .pdf export, I think it can be argued both ways (I tend to agree with you in the majority of works). Your notation software should be able to switch…"

Dave Dexter replied to Rowy's discussion Inspiration is for amateurs
"I like coffee. I drink it a lot.
Well, by that I really mean that I don't like it and never drink it. 
This is roughly the level of contradiction I'm tangling with in your different statements. But this is, after all, the internet 
I have no…"

Rowy replied to Rowy's discussion Inspiration is for amateurs
"Melodies do not come to me outside my control. I would go mad. Only when I'm going to write music and I sit down at the piano, after I notate the key and time signature, then I immediately can write whatever is necessarry. By no control, I mean the…"

Dave Dexter replied to Rowy's discussion Inspiration is for amateurs
"Yet in the specific sense of a creative mindset, melodies coming to you outside your control is definitely and literally inspiration. Unless you want to deploy extreme pedantry and say that, because you're not inspired to play or work them out, it…"

"Hello there,
Thank you for commenting. Much appreciated.

It's my normal practice to include unused staves as it helps with visual alignment page by page. I occasionally do a second version that omits unused staves. It usually means lots of work…"

Thank you."

"I missed the part about a little train, but as I was listening, I thought, 'This reminds me of a train.' So you got that part right. I think your composition would fit nicely in a video featuring a train or an animation.

Regarding the score,…"

  • David, I think it's thanks to the collective effort of everyone like yourself who rejoins, participates, and rebuilds. I can't do much on my own;) but I appreciate your sentiment.
  • Thank you Kristofer for your efforts in restoring (or perhaps resurrecting) this forum.
  • Ah - HS -a striking resemblance to your image here:)
    I guess Leonardo came up with it first...
    (I assume you don't mean the character in a murder mystery at the turn of the last century)
  • https://youtu.be/6q3fBK6LbCc
  • Hmph, the only Stella *I* know is one Mrs Octangula...
  • HS - the reference is "Streetcar named desire".
    Mike further obfuscates by referencing what is probably a good lager;)
  • The only Stella I know is a Ms Artois.
  • Who's Stella and what's this fiasco all about? I feel like I'm being left out. ;-)
  • I was so rattled, I ran into the street and yelled, “Stella!’
  • I thought you might be jealous! Perhaps the bot which is being used can identify admins!
