It seems I'm now advertising another new group. (Well, technically, the group I'm about to advertise isn't "new," but nobody besides me has joined it yet at the time of this writing.) The Musescorer Enochulous has made a group called "Genesis Games Music Team" (link here: https://musescore.com/groups/1892176) and is looking for composers and/or other music department members to help him create and share music for some games he is planning on making. (As far as I can tell, right now he's working on one called ZeroBlade Run.) If you're interested in composing for a video game, I recommend you check it out.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
I have just created a new group called "Community Remix Competitions." In this group, you can enter contests where you have to arrange other Musescorers' music within certain restrictions. If you want to learn more, here's a link: https://musescore.com/groups/remixcomp
Hey everybody, I am Stephen Moran. I have been on MuseScore for a little while but have never taken advantage of the groups that are available. I am very excited to receive feedback from my fellow composers!
give me feedback and advice on my arrangements please
I don't know about you, but I used to have trouble with odd time signatures. Here's how I remedied that.
Adam Neely's bass lessons on youtube are amazing sources of knowledge about time signatures and theory in general, and that's where I learned how to experiment with odd signatures. However, just knowledge isn't exactly enough. You have to listen to some and feel the strange signature. A great band to listen to is TOOL (the one with Maynard James Keenan, etc. etc.), as MUCH of their music is in obscure time signatures. Once you get used to those songs, listen to math rock (a good band is Totorro, spelled exactly like the adorable fluff ball of the character from the movie/anime). Try playing a song on your instrument in odd time signatures, and build a new mental metronome to count that timing.
When you're writing in odd time signatures, avoid what Adam Neely calls the "clave" of the time signature. For instance, in 5/4, the "clave" is two dotted quarter notes, then two quarter notes. This is a common 5/4 rhythm, but it's a bit bland when used over and over again (it's used in the mission impossible theme song). There are thousands of rhythmic combination with even just eight notes, so you can pretty much subdivide it however you want to.
That's all the advice I have, if anyone else has some, the you can put it down in the comments, I guess.
Hello, I am new to Musescore and I was wondering if anyone could recommend me to a few good composers on this site to look for some inspiration and composing advice! Thank you :)
this is a group for anything! (with moderation) ;P
Ok, so I know that this is a marching band group and some of you are going to hate me for this, but I am legit desperate for help on a concert band arrangement.
I'm writing a piece for concert band (it's an eighth grade band, so the music isn't too complex). It's an arrangement of music from the album Adele 21.
We have 3 percussionists, and I only have 2 percussion parts written: xylophone and drumset (One of our percussionists has been playing drumset for a long time and I wanted to write a piece that could showcase that). I really need another percussion part, but as I've never played percussion, I am not exactly knowledgeable in this field. Does anyone have any tips for adding another percussion part in a concert band piece?
(Again, don't hate me for posting this on a marching band group)
How do I post my scores to the group?
Does anyone know how to get the suspended cymbal sound in musescore.
Im currently writing a marching show and im in desperate need of a pit and battery arranger to write quality parts. Please contact me if interested.
Im currently writing a show and i need a percussion arranger to write quality pit and battery parts for the show. Message me if interested.
Put simply, I'm kinda bored, and I want to write out some percussion parts. However, I have no shows to write for! So, does anybody have a show that they'd like me to help arrange percussion parts (both pit and battery) for?
I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.
I am currently arranging some pop music. I have some questions for anyone that would be willing to help an amateur:
1. In pop music, sometimes artists embellish a little with vocals and etc. Is it better to use complex rhythms to come close to what the artist does, insert an simpler rhythm, or change it all together?
2. In giving out the melody parts, I don't really want to give it to the trumpets every time because they always get it, and the flutes are usually really hard to hear? What other options do I have that will actually sound good? I know that just about every instrument can play melody, but I also know that if not executed correctly it could be a disaster.
3. Does anyone have any suggestions for songs that I could do?
Help me write music or I hack .#.(-.-")
We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)
Somebody write what u mean by dae dae(aye aye aye) please
I am in a high school marching band and we would love to get to play some of the music you put out so would it be all right to use some of it for Friday night games? If not thanks anyway and keep righting music you guys are great
