Basso continuo – a form of bass line from the baroque period, noted with numbers that indicate chords, probably in a random nonsensical fashion according to the whims of the composer; あなたは生の魚を食べたことがありますか
Berceuse – a lullaby, causing you to doze off and miss your cue. Then the conductor throws his or her baton at you, stabbing you through the heart, and forever after you mournfully haunt the concert hall; matur nuwun sewu lulla, aku wis wektu swell
Crescendo – growing as in a swelling of sound, short for "Criminy, close the blooming window"; te recomendamos a good restaurant
Expressive – play expressively, sometimes with tears, grimacing, and much gnashing of your teeth; Har du noen kippers, jeg er sulten
Fugue – contrapuntal, someone's contrary uncle; غوريلا قليلة في العالم
Gigue – a lively dance form from the baroque, and when the music stops, everyone yells "gique!" and everyone falls down laughing: uma ingaphukile ungayilungisi

Rallentando – gradually slower, since we get tired during a performance such as one of Wagner's 8 hour opera performances; когда я становлюсь старше, я становлюсь медленнее

Sarabande – in baroque, a slow, genteel dance in triple time, also a small musical group led by the famous singer, Sara; Ég stakk upp á hundinn þinn

Yeah, another contest, but not necessarily with musical compositions. A number of banana recipes have already been posted in the comments to "banana, signature edition" and you are invited to submit your own unique/strange/fascinating banana recipes in this new contest. First, second, third, and honorable banana mention awards will be given. No rules ('rules? we don't need no stinking rules'). So let the merriment begin. The contest will end January 1, 2015.
Congrats on earning your Eagle Scout! It is a high honor! Introduce yourself here. Things like: what was your Eagle Project? What were some of your favorite merit badges? Did you receive your Order of the Arrow award? Have a great time.
A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.
One says: "Hey you, the other day I gave a concert and had to play with someone, who had built a harp like you and me into a wooden box and knocked on it with felt hammers."
Write a ringtone for a phone using any instruments you want. It can't be more than 45 seconds though. Deadline July 22, so you have one month.

hi! maybe someone has sheet music for ensemble three Alto saxophones and one flute soundtrack levels game darkwing duck. Or maybe someone can help with writing scores, for a small fee?
i need help.
i would implement the viola/cello Part in this..
but i have no idea what they play..
i hear it but i can´t write it down so can everyone help me
I really like the tenor saxophone+horn in F combination.
I know that this group isn't very active but I think it should be!
If we updated the profile image and background we could attract alot more newer people to share and express their ideas on saxophone.
I think its important also, to change the name to be inclusive to also military band saxophone. Military band is a very sepecial place in the history of the saxophone and such we should engage in that part of our history aswell!
I have to say bass. In an orchestra with two of each woodwind, adding a desk of bass saxophones has great results. With the saxophones playing the bass part, the bassoons are free to play the tenor part. You could also use tenor or baritone saxophones to play the tenor and the bassoons play bass but I prefer to use the bassoons as tenors.
here is an idea for a film music contest.
here is the scene:
Supergirl and wonderwoman are in a face-off and are getting ready to fight.
Write themes for each character.
incorporate the themes into suspenseful music to accompany the scene showing them getting ready to fight.
Any one interested?
Deadline is July 31.
So, I just hit the big 300 mark! What should I do?

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.
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 ;)
various serious comments are allowed here since this is not such a silly site after all.
here is an idea for a new competition
someone will start a composition with maybe 5-10 bars and then another person will continue it for another 5-10 measures, and then the next person and so on until the game will unexpectedly end (the music stops, in other words) and the last one to enter when the music stops (as determined randomly by the one running the competition) wins.
any takers or anyone want to start a piece?
