Hey everyone looks like I’m taken and off the dating menu, it’s been one and a half years since dated someone and ended it due to dating violence , wish me luck. And let’s hope he makes a arrangement of a song for me lol
I tried to make a composition which are there slurs in it. Unfortunately, as I have tried many times, seems that it didn't work. Is anybody give me advice how to make it work?
Appreciated every response.
Looks like I’m getting another violin by my dads friends aunt, I heard it’s 200 year old, Italian hand crafted, jubebee wood violin. It’s worth 500,000 dollars and I heard it’s beautifu. Idk what I’m gonna do with this violin, this is gonna be the third one I’m keeping in my house and now I have the get better security systems and insurance and a better case which idk how I’m gonna afford it when I’m the poorest person in my town. Anyone have any suggestions on security systems, rousin, strings, bows (hopefully a baroque style bow) cases and more care things for this expensive violin. The stuff I use in my violin is pretty good but it’s more of beginner to intermediate low violins, I use dominant strings, d’addrio premium rousin, factor cases for all violins, factory bows for all violins.
Any suggestions for this new 500,000 dollar violin will be GREATLYYYYYY appreciation
I have written full canons before and I have attempted writing fugues. But every attempt at writing fugues, at least 4 voice fugues leads to parallel octaves because I'm like:
Okay, I have reached an octave, now what? Going down to a 7th won't work because that will lead me back to the same octave. Going to a 9th also won't work unless it is between the tenor and the alto because I can't play a 10th interval with a single hand so if the 9th is between the tenor and the bass or between the alto and the soprano, my only choices are either to go back down to an octave or to leap. Going back to an octave seems like the better option because I conserve leaps, but it just delays the resolution of the octave. Contrary motion to a 6th might work, but what if that doesn't fit with the harmony? Only other solution I can think of that doesn't break the parallel octaves rule is a leap in 1 or both voices involved in the octave. And in general I want to use as few leaps as possible outside of maybe a subject entry, and if I have to use a leap, I would prefer a third over a sixth.
And I end up not finishing the fugue
Now I've been told that the distribution of 4 voices in a keyboard fugue is generally that the bass voice is alone in the left hand and that the other voices are generally in the right hand. But, it seems to me, that having 2 voices per hand just feels more balanced. I have also been told by a few people that fugues are easier to write than canons. Now this seems very counterintuitive to me. In a canon, you have the same melody, just delayed by a certain amount in each line. Sometimes this has a ground bass below it. I won't give an example from Pachelbel because you all know it. Instead, here is a 4 voice canon by Mozart played by a string quartet:
As you can see, every voice is playing the same exact melody until the cadential section is reached.
In contrast, fugues seem in all ways more complicated than canons. If I had to describe it as a cross between 2 forms, I would say that it is a cross between the canon and Sonata form. It has the main melody in multiple voices, just like a canon. And sometimes there are 1 or more countermelodies that also appear in multiple voices. There is also motivic development which is similar to what you find in Sonata form. 1 thing that differs the fugue from both canons and Sonata form is that the voices are like completely independent even if you don't take time into consideration. Time is what makes the lines of a canon independent. Fugues have lines that are independent through melodic shape alone. Sonatas rely on the relationship between melody and bass. No such relationship in fugues. In that sense, sonatas are closer to a ground bass canon.
And like I said before, I have never written a complete fugue, just a few complete canons. Even something like Fugue in C minor WTC I seems easy for a fugue but hard for counterpoint in general and especially compared to canons. Here is the fugue I'm mentioning and this video uses color to show the 3 independent voices:
So are fugues really easier to write than canons if they are almost like a cross between the canon and the sonata? If canons are hard, then wouldn't fugues be even harder?
I'm really curious too see what y'all think. (My wrecker is Jungkookie) :3
I sent https://musescore.com/howard_c_/mixed_quintet_no_1_complete to
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KyqBDIl2sg, and it was "removed becuase it was too long"? The score is only 15:50 so I don't know why this happened... Is it because the custom audio? But the audio should be 15:50 too... I exported it from MuseScore itself. :o
My favorite drawing one is charcoal... it's like pencil, but you can get more contrast and it's messier, which is fun and makes you look more artistic XD. My favorite painting media is watercolor, despite how unforgiving they are. The other ones take too long to dry.
Any Feedback on this song???
This song is free to all, but any changes to the melody should be intimated.
If you like this music and the song, you can go ahead and use it in your worship time to glorify our Lord Jesus. You can add more Verse(s) to this song and share it with me so that I can also use it.
Praise The Lord
God Bless You
Does anyone know of or have any music arrangements/songs in a Blues style? The band has 3 Trumpets and 1 Tenor Trombone (me!), but Trumpets can double up. Thanks!
Hey fellow trombonists.
Many of you may not know this, but while you may play tenor or bass trombone there are tons of other types. So out of any style of trombone ever what would you put on your wish list. For me it's the Buccin, a trombone only ever used in France from 1810-1845 that has a Sousaphone like bell with a dragon's head on the end. The thing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Buccin_yeo_01.jpg) is one of the coolest looking instruments I've ever seen!
So what do you guys think?
Mine would probably be winning an international piano competition (in my state's "division" - there's a "division" in a good number but not all of the US states and a bunch of other countries around the world) and getting to play in Carnegie hall :D
(it was on January 20 2019 - driving down to new york was a NIGHTMARE - new england winters are the worst because ice falls from the sky quite frequently :/ we flew back so yeet)
I played Rachmaninov's "Little Red Riding Hood" etude (op. 39 no. 6) - if you haven't heard it I STRONGLY recommend listening to it - it's INSANE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6pnCSeuOds)
Spielst du eigentlich ein Instrument? Wenn ja, welches?
A famous piece of Japanese anime music https://musescore.com/user/16878501/scores/4099766
I realised it is heavily inspired by Rachmaninov, see m19.
And apparently Rach is inspired by the Russian big dudes including Tchaikovsky, Scriabin, and some others romantic masters. Then, early romantic masters are more or less inspired by Bach, including Beethoven and Chopin, despite Bach might not be that famous at the time before mandy. Anyway, that’s why Bach was know as the grand master!
Same computer and browser that I have been using every time I report these issues(Windows 10 OS, Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, Mozilla Firefox browser).
This icon issue started several days back. But at first, it only affected me when I initially logged in and as soon as I went to another page, the icons would show up correctly(like the arrow for the upload icon, the bubble for the comment icon, and everything else).
Today, it is more permanent. No matter what page I'm on, the icons look like gibberish. Like the upload icon looks like F0RR in a little box instead of the upload icon. Only time on the site makes the icons look normal. What is causing this and when will the icons get back to normal without me having to wait to see the normal icons?
Just to clarify, the reply and like icons aren't affected and neither is the notification icon but pretty much every other icon is affected.
So @TheLight OI had asked me to try performing one of his scores (It's beautiful by the way, check it out!)
I am in serious need of constant reminder to get practicing, so what I thought of doing is making a discussion so people could listen to my progress on the song. I will practice that day and record what I went through (just once).
Feel free to bash my mistakes XD
PS. No day 1 because I was focused on changing the notation so it's easier to read and sight read through it like once.
