Favorite Pokemon?

I've noticed there haven't been many discussions, so to get the chatting going, I making this discussion about favorite Pokemon, so what ever it is, put it out there! It's pretty obvious what mine is but I'll restate it. My favorite is Spoink. I also like, Crustle, Shuckle, and Magikarp (no joke!)

Jon war DJ bei der Hochzeit von Phils Bruder


Das Paar genoss einen ersten Tanz bei Etta James 'At Last und ein DJ-Set von Jon Saunders. "Jon war DJ bei der Hochzeit von Phils Bruder, also wussten wir, dass wir ihm vertrauen konnten, dass er die Gäste unterhält und eine Party-Atmosphäre schafft. Ehrlich gesagt, ich denke

, dieser Hochzeitsempfang war eine der besten Atmosphären, die ich je hatte. "

"Viel Spaß beim Planen! Wir haben geheime Tische auf Pinterest verwendet, um unsere Ideen zusammenzufassen. Und wenn Sie ein Budget haben, schätzen Sie, was Sie ausgeben möchten, BEVOR Sie die Forschung verlieren. " 

Ich liebe diese Hochzeit, sie ist so kreativ und voller Persönlichkeit. Siehst du etwas Ähnliches für den nächsten Frühling und haben wir andere Frauen von Naomi Neoh unter uns?"

What makes a piece a bagatelle?

Now I know length is part of the answer. Nobody wouldn't consider a 10 minute long rondo to be a bagatelle. Bagatelles tend to be around 3-5 minutes in length. Also, from my experience(though this is biased towards Fur Elise and Bagatelle in C minor(the one at a presto tempo) because those are the 2 bagatelles that I am most familiar with), they seem to follow one of 2 forms most often. Those being:



Rondo form, usually ABACA instead of the more complicated rondos you see at the ends of sonatas such as ABACABA. This is how come, despite the short length, Rondo Alla Turka does not count as a bagatelle, its rondo form is more complicated than a simple ABACA and is much closer to Sonata form in its nature(that and it is the end of a Mozart sonata, just more often played by itself than with the whole sonata)

And:



Ternary form, sometimes itself split into Ternary form subsections, especially in the A section.

An example of a Bagatelle in Rondo form:
 
The most famous bagatelle in existence

An example of a Bagatelle in Ternary form:

This one has an A section that itself is in ternary form. In that sense, it is closer to a rondo, but I'm still counting it as ternary form because of the Scherzo and Trio structure of the bagatelle as a whole.

Another thing that I notice, at least in minor key bagatelles, is that there will often be 3 sections differing by key and intensity. One of the sections will be intense and in the minor tonic. Another section that is also in the minor tonic will have a more relaxed feel to it. And then there is a section in a contrasting major key, usually either the submediant, relative major, subdominant, or dominant, but sometimes the parallel major is used instead(as in the case of the C minor bagatelle).

But obviously form and length aren't the whole story, otherwise a lot of short, simple rondos would be called bagatelles. And granted there are a lot of bagatelles out there(especially Beethoven bagatelles), but the majority of short rondos aren't bagatelles, just rondos. 

So besides the piece being in either Rondo or Ternary form, being short, having 2 sections in the same key and another section in a contrasting key, and having the 2 sections that share a key differ in intensity, what makes it a bagatelle? Does it have to do with being in triple meter as opposed to 4/4 or 2/4? No, because some bagatelles are in 6/8 and that isn't triple meter(well, I guess it can be either duple or triple depending on context but usually 6/8 is duple meter with a triplet feel, not triple meter with a straight eighths feel).

So, I have found a lot of similarities amongst bagatelles in their form, key, and length, time signature types differ, but I don't seem to have found what makes a piece a bagatelle. So what is it that makes a piece a bagatelle?

Message Regarding a New Composition of Mine

Hey! I would love if you guys and gals checked out my experimentation with chord progressions and nationalism. Here's a sample for y'all.

Rubato in separate voices

I'm writing a piano concerto, and I would like for the arpeggio in the right hand to be independent rhythmically to the eighth notes in the left hand. Currently, the arpeggio is written as a 9-tuplet with fermatas over each note. The result is a swung bass which really does not fit the style of the piece.

As a matter of notation, I made the arpeggio note heads small to indicate a lack of rhythm, but the note heads in the left hand standard to indicate that they are to be played at tempo. Is there any way currently, or could there possibly be any way in the future, that this effect could be achieved in playback? The fermata trick is already a huge step forward from when one would have to change the tempo for each note; I think there could even be a better way to implement rubato. 

Collaborative Symphony

Does anyone want to write a collaborative symphony where we write separate movements but fit within an idea and a theme? FILLED, BUT NEEDS SUGGESTIONS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is how we are going to do it, we will come up with a theme or an opening melody, which will we will have our movements based on. Once completed we will compose our movements, and when we're done, I will put them together and all people who participated will uploaded it with credits given.
