Musecorps Drum Corps Recording #1

Hello! Mark and I have finalized the brass parts for the ballad of our original show, 2 + 2 = 5. The ballad we've chosen is The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng, as we believe it fits the theme of the show - George Orwell's "1984" - perfectly.

If you are unfamiliar with the project, here is a quick summary:
Mark and I plan to have as many of you submit recordings of yourselves playing through the show as we can. We will then compile the recordings into one large file, and place it over virtual drill that Mark is writing, to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. If you'd like to record, here's all the info you'll need!

1.) Parts
You can play through as many parts as you'd like. In fact, we would much appreciate it if you did! (For example, if you play the trumpet, it will be better for the end result if you record and submit all three trumpet parts, rather than just doing one) Of course, you don't have to do this! Mark and I will be listening through each recording of the trumpet soloist's part, and picking the one we think would best benefit the overall recording.
2.) Recordings
We would prefer if you submit one large (3-ish minute) recording, but if you find it difficult to play through the part(s) in one sitting, please refer to the recording guide below!
Here is the link to all the parts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CTplR1RBHZX2YCJZ80M35VF20sjaPI9u?usp=sharing
3.) Recording Guide
Recording One: Beginning to Letter D
Recording Two: Letter D to Letter F (Trumpets, include two measure pick-up)
Recording Three: Letter F to Letter I
Recording Four: Letter I to the end

Again, we'd much prefer your recording be from the beginning to the end, to simplify our own work, but we decided to include this in case some need the breaks in between. Trumpets obviously don't need a recording one/four, as they don't play at these points. Please play the part at the exact tempo that's listed. This can easily be done by playing along with the recording (preferably while wearing a headset!).
4.) Submitting
If you have recorded the entirety of the ballad at once, submit an MP3/MP4 file with this name as the format:
Username_PartName_Full
If you used the segmented guide above, use this format:
Username_PartName_RecordingNumber

ex. TheMTCrew_Trombone1_Rec1
OR
markmacri_Mellophone1_Full

If you have any questions, ask them below! Thanks everyone!

Hello! A Hetalian fan shows up!

First of all, I want to say that my English is not very good, because I am Spanish.
I'm in 1st grade professional or seventh grade flute (I've been at the music conservatory for 5 years). I'm a serious fan of Axis Powers Hetalia (I love it). And ... I'm a girl. I love music and I'm pretty good. I want to ask ... Anyone who can make scores of Hetalia songs? Thank you!!

Suggestion

Hey there! I want to first start off by saying I absolutely love the new MuseScore Drumline Extension! It is amazing! One thing I have noticed, and think should possibly be adjusted sometime in the future, would be a better front ensemble update. I write for indoor drumline and I would love it if the front ensemble sounded a little bit more realistic. I understand that this is mainly a marching percussion update, however I think it would be amazing if things were changed up a bit. I'm sure a lot of other users would be happy too!

Marimba deadstrokes (hard / soft mallets?)
Pedal vibes
Finger cymbals
Suspended cymbals / chokes
Gong / gong roll
Crash-chokes
(Hard / soft mallets for battery?)
Bowed crotales
Bowed cymbal
Bowed vibes
Zil-bell
Anvil
Various tribal drums
Loop wind chimes
More sound effects (wind, rain, thunder, etc.)
More synth settings

Anyway, that's all! Thanks so much! 💙
Jacob

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!

So far...

New To The Group - P!ATD Songs

Hey Guys,
I just joined the group like literally right now. I am a serious Panic! at the Disco fan and I was wondering if anyone would be able to make some more P!ATD Scores for me to play as there aren't very many for Flute. If you didn't already guess, I play  the Flute and I am at a Intermediate to Professional Stage. (I have been playing for 3 Years going on 4) Thanks So much!!! HAPPY FLUTING!!

Hey, could someone make a score for me?

Hey guys, just joined the group, and I LOVE flutes. But it is kinda hard to do that when you are a 7th grade BOY and people tease you because your a boy and you play flute. Its dumb. Sorry, that has nothing to do with what im about to ask. Could someone make a Flute/Violin duet of Locomotive Breath by Jethro Tull. Even though nobody is probably going to do my request, im just gonna say thanks. Thanks!

Need brass writers to help compose a marching band show!

Not too serious about this, but I'd like to make a 3 part show that's medium difficulty and fun to play, and I need help. I'm a percussion writer, and I'd like to bring a few other people on board with this. DM me on insta if you're interested @mvlchandani 

(If I do get 3 or 4 people on board and are serious about this and we actually write a good show, I have connections and I could get Box-Six to buy the show from us)
