So I usually am not in the presence of staff paper, and I absolutely love graph paper for many things, so I created my own system of notation for when I have graph paper but no staff paper. It’s rudimentary and inefficient, but it makes practical sense. It’s not really meant to play off of, it’s more meant to keep track of rhythms and pitches for future use. Currently I’m using this system to transcribe and transport the sax solo from Youngblood Brass Band’s “Brooklyn” into Flat.io without changing tabs or removing instruments. I’m mildly proud of this system; I’ve used it in the past, up to a year ago, but I’ve refined it.
This piece is an homage a Erik Satie. He wrote 3 gymnopedies. Gymnos comes from greek word for nude and is also the root for the words gymnastic and gymnasium. The opposite word is "Angio" that means dressed or which has a contour. I think no more explanation needed. :) Hope you like it.
Since it's spooktober, I thought, that we also could include some sadness :(
I dunno, it would be nice with feedback. :)
Under The Sky....
