I'm having trouble writing music for Drumset. The drums should play something like Miles Davis' All Blues from Kind of Blue Album. 3/4, brushes, swing. What has to be written that the drummer knows what to play.
Thanks for your help.
There's this game on a forum I'm on, and it's super fun. All you have to do is: slam/drag (don't break!) your fingers across the keyboard and make a sentence out of the string of letters in the post above you.
Now here's the sentence:
Sodas don't flippin steal living rooms shining free ski kebab jams.
As long as nothing's explicit, have fun!
Here's for the first reply:
uh...judges? Are you still here lol xD
Anyway just a reminder to you guys to get your results in as soon as you can, since we can announce the winner as soon as you do so :P
Here's the rubric:
10 automatic points for following the contest criteria
10 points for being pleasant to listen to
5 points for having interesting melodies, chords, etc. (though in this context the "chords" part doesn't really apply)
5 points for creativity/uniqueness (or trying new stuff)
1 bonus point for being the first submission :P (though if you rush it you might not score as high on the above criteria :P)
1 bonus point for having the piece be exactly 2 mins long
Total: 30 points (though it is possible to get 31/30 or 32/30)
Submissions are listed in the original contest discussion, in the order they were submitted.
Please pm me your results once you're done! The winner will be the person who has the highest mean score.
Hey guys! Feel free to vent, ramble, throw a pity party or whatever. I want to know how you guys are doing in this wonderful thing called life, so throw it at me. Or not, I guess you could just gently toss it at me. Either one works.
I'm looking for some feedback on my musics.
Every critique and review are accepted except, agressive ones.
Hi, I compose an impromptu in g minor. Please provide some comments and feedbacks.
So, I was thinking about musical styles... Every composer have yours. So, listening to my music, how do you define my style of composition?
I'm just curious. What's in the works? Are you mastering an instrument, learning to play a new one, trying to grow as an arranger/composer? Any upcoming music classes you're excited about? Goals? Plans? Post 'em below; maybe we can help keep each other on task. :)
If that doen't stop, MuseScore will loose users and MONEY!!!
Alright, so I've been seeing that the activity in this group has been going down - so I wanted to introduce something to help spice things up!
It has in fact been 3 months since the last contest, the I N T E R E S T I N G challenge, was introduced, so it's about time we do our 4th contest!
(mnmwert will still get his full month with the congratulatory group banner and links to his profile/music in the description as he was promised, though, so the winner will be announced on or after July 19th).
So! A brief introduction to what this challenge will be about: so you know those really popular New Age piano solos (and sometimes epic orchestral pieces) floating around everywhere - the ones that are usually captioned as "epic", "beautiful", "inspirational", etc. Though they are indeed very beautiful, something I've begun to gripe about is that probably way too many of them tend to have the same chord progression, vi-IV-I-V, throughout the entire piece. Some examples include: River Flows in You by Yiruma, Nuvole Bianche by Einaudi, and My World by Florian Bur. They're all beautiful piano pieces in my opinion, buuut the chord progression used all the way through these pieces isn't very original at all :P
I've thought for a while now that I should make one of these cliche "inspirational" piano pieces just for the sake of making fun of them - similar to what I did with my 3-note song in making fun of pop. I feel like it's a fun twist as well, since now, instead of making fun of a genre that I don't like or listen to, and is made fun of by stereotypical "music snobs", I'm making fun of the very genre I listen to, enjoy and compose in on a regular basis. And I thought, wouldn't this be fun for the rest of RSA to try this too? Soooooo.....
You are to compose a two-minute piano solo that uses the chord progression vi-IV-I-V throughout its entirety. Pretty simple :P After this challenge, I'll probably even upload my own go at this challenge and link the contest and everyone's submissions in its description :P
1. You MUST use vi-IV-I-V, and ONLY vi-IV-I-V. You may not substitute any chords; it has to be those four repeating over and over. The only exception is that you can end the piece on a chord other than V :P
2. You MUST write a piano solo. Just trying to put a limit on the instrumentation this time so we can see how everyone does when working with the same instrument (and judges aren't biased by people who have more time on their hands than others and write a massive orchestral work).
3. The piece must be NEWLY COMPOSED. Cause there's a pretty big chance that more than one of you has written one of these piano pieces already :P
4. Your piece has to be playable. For those that don't play piano - a typical pianist can comfortably reach the interval of a 9th or a 10th, and a typical "large chord" is 4 notes (5-note chords for one hand in piano music exist, but aren't that common).
5. You can write in whatever style you wish. I know I talked about New Age piano pieces, but as long as you use the chord progression I specified, you can write in whatever style you want.
6. Your piece should be around 2 mins long. You will lose a point if your piece is under 1:40 or over 2:20.
7. Modulations and inversions of chords are allowed, but modulations must be spaced at least 16 bars apart so vi-IV-I-V is established (and repeated) in the new key before it changes again.
A bonus point will be awarded to the first submission, but keep in mind that if you rush it, you might lose points in other areas.
A bonus point will also be awarded if you manage to make your piece exactly 2 minutes and 0 seconds. I will be judging this by looking at the time indication on your score description (if it goes even one second over/under, you don't get the point :P)
The winner will have their name and score link in RSA's Hall of Fame, have their profile and winning score linked at the top of this group's description for a month, and have the group banner changed to congratulate them for a month.
The deadline is July 5th.
If any of you want to be judges, comment below. The first two people who say they want to be judges will get to be judges.
Have fun, guys! And may RSA revive! :D
