"Thanks Marius. It's definitely a subjective thing. And yes, it's really hard to get the full impact of the work w/out it's visual component. I hear what you are saying about the melodic focus of v1 - it's the nature of the beast, and you have to…"

"I agree, Steve, that first one has that feeling, which is why I didn't send it off at first. Hmmm, maybe I'll see if I can license it to a Christmas show! :)

Thanks for listening!"

"Hi Harpsichordal,

Thanks for checking it out, and for your comments!

I agree, it would have been much more engaging and informative with the visual part attached - it's kind of ironic to be talking about scoring to picture without showing the…"

Sorry for the lack of clarity; I am talking solely about doing it for film, where the ensemble is sight reading a tempo change from 75 bpm, to 132.56 bpm with a switch from 4/4 to 7/4 - TO CLICK and it has to be perfect in 3 takes or…"

"Hey James,

Another great post. One thing I love about the way you write is that you address the basics first - and everyone can always benefit from a review of the basics. Also, everyone has a different way of presenting something, which can click…"

"Depends on my position - information (esp. names) is really important, but so is knowing their needs, what they've done, what they're doing; etc.

I try to set new short term & long term goals every year, adjusting for changes in the realities we…"

"Hey Scott,

Thanks for the reply - excellent words of advice. Do you call places based on the work they do and that they produce stuff that you specifically want to work on, or is it more of an information gathering thing? If you are going to make a…"

My success rate is about 5 - 10%, and that's because I always try to get a

Excellent insightful stuff - thanks a ton for sharing this valuable information.

  • Danke! Ich habe Musik vielen gern!
  • Hey! I never welcomed you! So guess what? Wilkommen!
  • I finally put up some music on my area in case you're interested.

    Later,
  • Thanks, Iactually have this photo from another ning group I belong to, but I'm happy that people here like it as well.
  • Although I was a composition faculty member, I was really never interested in composing. I much preferred teaching theory and arranging. To paraphrase Artie Shaw, 'you write it and I'll see what I can do with it.'
  • Put down the condiments and step away from the table!
  • The hubby will be at an academic conference. I'll be left to my own devices to wander the city. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never been to Canada, but I have family on the US side of the falls. What's the weather like up there in early/mid July?
  • ah... so here i find you all!
    consorting and organizing some kind of "kitchy click".
    i feel sooo alone.
    just me and my ipod earbuds and this palm tree under an orange fiery sky.

    whoa is me.

    "what's that over there?!
    stage left!
    if only you could see the sights I behold!
    it's the most incredible thing you ever did see!
    so incredible! I think I deserve THE most incredible kitchy-click nick!"
    chris?
  • Greetings from NYC! The weather here has been crazy! It was cold on Tuesday, hot yesterday, cold this morning, hot now! I still need to sign up for Smalley if there's still room. Hey, I'll be in Toronto early next month, and I've never been! Can I prime you for info?
  • The "something" clef! What was it Smalley called it? The nimbus clef? The X clef? He was really pushing that idea, though...
