"New" Group -- Genesis Games Music Team

Hello everyone,

It seems I'm now advertising another new group. (Well, technically, the group I'm about to advertise isn't "new," but nobody besides me has joined it yet at the time of this writing.) The Musescorer Enochulous has made a group called "Genesis Games Music Team" (link here: https://musescore.com/groups/1892176) and is looking for composers and/or other music department members to help him create and share music for some games he is planning on making. (As far as I can tell, right now he's working on one called ZeroBlade Run.) If you're interested in composing for a video game, I recommend you check it out.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

DCI percussion transcribers wanted (Drumline and Pit)

I need somebody to help transcribe the Drumline and Pit for my transcription of the Cavaliers' 2014 show Immortal. The entire brass score is finished, I just need people willing to transcribe in the percussion parts

I have most of the rack part and I have all the percussion in the Dance Macabre section done

The score- https://musescore.com/user/357766/scores/4100606

There are GoPro cams online of the run-throughs of Snare, Tenor, Bass 3, Bass 5 and 2 Marimbas on YouTube, but i don't know how to put heard drum rhythms onto paper so to speak.

If anybody wants to help, leave a comment of any sections/instruments you'd be willing to do

Please Read if you are really serious about this.

Hello, my name is Alan Tedder and I am going to start a music business and I need some writers that are going to be serious about this and take time to write the best music of their minds and place it on the sheet. I am writing concert and marching band. I am making a website, which it will launce before ( I hope,) Christmas. The music will take a while to develop and as soon as our shows and pieces and other fun stuff come to place and promote my website and the sources, I believe we can have the best music out there! Please consider this, it would make a difference for me and my future as a composer.

Concert: Woodwind, Low Brass, and pit. I will write the percussion 1 and 2 parts for the music.
Marching: Woodwind, Pit, and Drumline. I will write the Low Brass, since I have crazy experience.

I hope some people and I can come together and write and make music as good as our ears can hear. I believe in hard work, and I want to make this thing a living habit, not just a another thing to do. Interested? Email me at Alantedder1@gmail.com for more information.

Looking for help transcribing percussion parts for Drum Corps shows.

Hi! I've been transcribing drum corps shows for a bit under a year now. I've always had a problem with transcribing percussion, however. I can somewhat manage to transcribe front ensemble parts sometimes, but I'm mostly lost with snare/tenor/bass parts. If anyone can help me transcribe parts for any of my shows, that'd be great! I'm looking for people who either play percussion and/or are experienced with writing/transcribing perc parts.

If you do send me percussion parts, I'll obviously credit you on the score.

The five shows I have that I'd like to have full percussion scores for at some point are:
Carolina Crown 2010 - A Second Chance
Carolina Crown 2015 - Inferno
Carolina Crown 2016 - Relentless
The Academy 2016 - Drum Corpse Bride
The Cadets 2016 - Awakening

All five scores are in my spotlight, if you'd like to view them. As a last note, I'm sure to transcribe more shows in the future, and I'd love help with those too.

Thanks! Leave a comment or send me a message if you're interested.

I've decided to stay with Musescore

When MS first changed it's format, I was extremely upset. It was a very poor transition with LOTS and LOTS of errors. In the past six months they have cleaned up a lot of problems. They still have not addressed two major problems, as I see it.
1) When cruising the dashboard if you listen to a song, you must go back to the top of the dashboard again. I can go through 7 or 8 pages and then frustration sets in. MS should work towards their software remembering where you are in your dashboard. This would make it much easier to peruse titles.
2) I believe that favourites do not belong on a composers profile page. I would much rather have another 5 of my scores scores show up. This may just be me, but there are many reasons for giving a favourite. Since MS has no "Like" button, I use the Fav for that function. When a young composer has spent a lot of time and energy in trying to write a masterpiece I feel that a fav rewards them for their work. When I really, really like a song... I just download it and add it to my library.

I have looked at other sites, and I see advantages to MS. I will stay, I also intend to make this group larger and more active.

Thanks to all of you members for sticking to the group.
Cheers
Richard

Indiana Storm Productions INC. looking for percussion arranger

Over the next year, Indiana Storm Productions will be putting a Indoor Winds group out and then in 2019 planning on fielding a Junior Open Class Corps. The plans are for 32 brass, 14 field percussion, 14 guard and 5+ pit. We will be needing a percussion arranger looking to make a mark upon the drum corps scene. Over the first 3 years, the corps will hopefully grow to full sized as finances and membership permit. If you are interested, please email me at director@indianastorm.net.
The organizational website is at http://indianastorm.net/. We are starting to pull our staff together early so that we may have time to discuss programmatic issues.
