Need Volunteers for the Musecorps Drum Corps!

EDIT: We're looking for recordings of the ballad! Here's the link for more info! https://musescore.com/groups/musecorps/discuss/5027254

Hello everyone! My friend Mark and I have been working on a show for fun. It is based off of the novel 1984, and will likely be completed within the next month.

If enough people sign up, we hope to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. Basically, by this, we plan to have as many people record themselves playing though the parts as we can get, then compile the parts together into one big audio file. Mark is working on writing drill in a program.

All I'm hoping for with this specific thread is to see how many people would be interested in hearing more about this idea. Lemme know if you'd want to play in it below, and ask any questions that you may have! I'll make a bigger post in the near future with specifics.

If you haven't seen the score yet, here's a link: https://musescore.com/themtcrew/scores/5217400

Thanks guys! If you want/can, let any friends that you think would be interested know about this. We hope to get as many brass players as we can, and will take any percussion recordings if we can find them! To be clear, we're not looking for recording yet, as the show isn't completed. Just wanted to see how many would be interested!

Still more words requiring a composer

These words have 6 syllables in every line. Every other line rhymes. Try writing a song for this visit, by a mysterious stranger, to an inn. (In the middle of a storm)
You think up the title...

The wind howled, thunder roared,
And lightning smote the sky
Rain battered on the roof,
Charcoal clouds swirled on high
A dark figure trudged up
The rain and mud filled lane
His black cape was pulled tight
To try and stop the rain

A lantern shone ahead,
Swinging in the fierce storm
Towards this beacon went
The dark and rain soaked form
Shutters closed to the wind
Showed but a crack of light
To the door he did go
A shadow in the night

The keep heard the wind howl
As he opened the door
And inside, water ran
From cape onto the floor
Face hidden by his brim
His collar turned up high
He closed the tavern door
Against the winds harsh cry

A muddy trail he left
To a chair by the wall
He sat, back to the fire,
For warmth against the squall
From beneath his cape came
A gloved hand with some gold
He beckoned for hot stew
And a mug of ale cold

Reaching up, he undid
The clasps that held his cape
He threw it on a chair,
A black and formless shape
His hair was long and black
Though shadow hid his face
A steel sword turned to gold
By flick’ring fireplace

Silently, ate his stew
Then chased it down with ale
Outside the storm had turned
Into a north-east gale
He stood and donned his cape
And turned towards the door
Without a word he went,
Across the cold black moor.

"How to write (better) lyrics?" - A tip

 Hi,

how do you write interesting lyrics, how do you avoid cliches, how do you find and create interesting metaphores, how do you create something beautiful, how to change lyrics into which directions, what's your rhyme-dictionary, how to avoid the perfect rhyme?

These are the subject of Pat Pattison's books. Pat is to lyrics what a mechanic is to my car :)

Just as a teaser:
* lyric is a car
* car of lyric
* lyric's car

-> what images do these create for you, and how can you use them for your lyrics?
E.g.
* lyric brings you to destination, lyrics move, lyrics entice
* / your turn :)

Best, Michael

Please make this song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpGF6otM1Q It's called Breadfan and our band loves the song so much that our band teacher, he errrr banned (or band, if i wanted to be punny) the song. So he took away the song from us and we don't have the music for it. Some of the best players remember it, but most forgot. So it would be appreciated if someone could bring our lovely breadfan back to us so we can be happy yet again because we hate our band teacher and vice versa and we want our breadfan back.

Lyrics Needing A Composer

Something Rock Or Jazzy Or prefarably Both

(intro) Oh Baby, 
Why did you have to lie?
I thought you loved me? 
I thought i was the only one. 
Have you ever? 
Thought About me? 
Have you ever? 
Cared for me?  
Oh, i know you never did.  
(bridge)  
You used me…. 
Oh..you hurt me… 
Just because i am weak  
OHH,while you loved her… 
You told me… 
I was the only one… 
But you lied baby! 
You betrayed me Baby!  

(Chorus)
 Am i nothing to you… 
Am i just someone that you used… 
Am i just someone that you played…  
I’ve let you devour me!!
 Because Heaven Knows!! 
I love you more than anything!!!!  
I would die for you Oh! 
I would even kill for you baby 
I would do and give  Anything for you  

(bridge2) 
SO BABY!!!! 
I know i’m an idiot To say this!!!
 But Please, 
Come back to me… 
Even though.. 
You’re a Selfish Man 
I’ll forgive all your mistakes  

(Chorus 2) 
Because BABY 
I can’t live without you. 
I would rather die.. 
Instead of… 
Loving someone else… 
Oh BABY!!! You are my only one!! You are my Baby!! OH BABY!! You Are My MAN!!!!

 I know i’m Stupid To think… 
That you’ll change  
Because you lied to me…

  All i want is this pain to be gone… 
But he keeps hurting me… 
He loves her now… 
But he keeps telling me… 
He still loves me…

a song waiting for lyrics ?

This is part of a set of 10 pieces of folk music, which I have written this year and named the Sutherland Reels ( they are not all reels !). Do you think it could be developed as a song with the additions of lyrics and vocals ?

In the youtube version I am playing a Yamaha synth. Using sinsy I could generate a synthesized vocal and add it to that.   

Musecorps Competition #0.1!

Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?

Thanks for any feedback!

Musecorps Competition #0!

Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!

This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!

The Competition:
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.

If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!

Hello!

Hi everyone! I've been a part of the drum corps community on Musescore for a few years now, and have been adding my DCI transcriptions to the groups on here ever since. I've been into making my own original drum corps arrangements recently and noticed that there was no group specifically for drum corps arrangements. So, here it is!

I have no idea how popular this group is going to be, but that's okay. If it does become relatively active, I DO have a few ideas for it. The biggest one I have in mind is a weekly/bi-monthly/monthly drum corps arrangement competition. You know, "make an arrangement for this song," or "make an arrangement that fits this theme," or even "write a full original show." Stuff like that. If it gets big enough, there could even be prizes involved!

Let me know how you think this group should evolve, or if it even should. Also, sorry if the name is stupid. I thought it was clever.
