"Hi Izzy, I'd like to hear this but my browser is having trouble with your player, could you maybe export an mp3 to youtube or Soundcloud?"

Bob Porter replied to Izzy Savides's discussion Should I take this any farther?
"Of course you should take this further."

"Oh, my bad- I wasn't looking at it at the moment, yeah, it's in Bb natural minor. Almost all of my music is in natural minor, so it's at a point where I don't think about it much."

Stephen Lines replied to Izzy Savides's discussion Should I take this any farther?
"The song isn't in A minor....if anything it's in Bb minor apart from the fact the 6th and 7th degrees of the scale don't alter when ascending; so it's more modal than anything (this from looking at the first dozen bars only - maybe things change…"

"Well, originally the song was in A major and one day I decided I wanted to move it to A minor so I did. Haha, the key doesn't have much meaning behind it, the original song was the piece with meaning. That one was in a major key and sounded happy…"

"Izzy,
I think from earlier conversations that I can understand your choice of key - it's dark and in keeping with the terrible subject of the BIG C...a disease which is inexorable in its progress and which, unless the sufferer is very fortunate…"

"It is a start. Thanks for posting a score. Please do tell why that particular key signature though?"

Dane Aubrun replied to Izzy Savides's discussion Should I take this any farther?
"I couldn't quite decide whether it was written in the dorian mode. With no leading note it's possible. Trouble is the harmony doesn't vary a lot, a brief excursion into Eb minor at one point but that's all so extending this piece on the same basis…"

Izzy Savides replied to Stephen Lines's discussion Christchurch Variations
"I actually didn't pay much attention to the score, I just noticed when I did look at the beginning that it was confusing. Bob Porter said:
Oops.
Sorry Izzy. But do you see my point? Can you say you were fully engaged in listening to the music while…"

Stephen,
I know what a howler is (having committed many myself), and there are none in this very fine piece. I wonder if Izzy would have been bothered by the meter if he had not been following the score. I get the interest in…"

Izzy Savides replied to Stephen Lines's discussion Christchurch Variations
"It sounds very nice and I like the chord changes. However, the time signature confuses me. It sounds like it should be written in a fast 4/4 or a slow 2/4, and the phrases change in between bars when they feel like they should change in full…"

"Okay, thank you for your help. Yeah, I guess I am being a little ambitious with the sounds I want, haha. Most likely, the reason it took so long for you to load is that Noteflight scores are typically short and they lag a lot once they get bulky…"

"What you are seeking to achieve by electronic means would possibly mean having to invest in a DAW....quite a lot of money and a year or so to learn to use to its full potential. Sibelius does allow for some variation in timbre and tone via it's…"

"What I mean by showing people my music is playing it for them on my phone, as I know almost nobody who can read music or even likes classical music. So I like Noteflight, because I can export the wav file and play it for people directly through my…"

"Izzy,
Here's a piece called Orion The Hunter for horn and piano to help you form an opinion - it was composed on Sibelius combined with Noteperformer3...personally I think the sound is OK and of course, because you can print out the score and parts…"
