So recently, I heard about this concept called polytonality, where different parts in a piece of music would play in different keys. For example, in a string quartet the first violin will play in Ab major, the second violin will play in C major, the viola will play in Eb major, and the cello would play in F major. I thought this was pretty cool, so I decided to try this in Musescore. However, I ran into a problem when I found out that inserting one key signature would revert all of the key signatures in all of the parts into the same one. I don't want to use accidentals, since that would take a long time and be very hard to read, so does anyone have a suggestion on what I can do to get around this problem?
I wrote this for a story prompt for another group bit i think its a cool piano piece so i thought id post this up her. take a listen and tell me what you thing. thank you and hope you enjoy it.
hey guys im new but i wrote this piece after watching way to much anime and also as a way to step out of the box of what i was confertable writing hope everyone likes it.
I don't know much about music theory, but I can at least hope to have created something special.
What do you think?
Would much appreciate all thoughts!!! Especially by you lovely more modern-minded folks.
These will be the second and third movements of a suite containing five or six movements. The first, fourth, and fifth have all been started but not completed.
I'm aware that the MIDI file could be improved. Didn't worry about the interpretation much as whoever performs it will take care of that... only notated the really essential and non-obvious things.
lets see... New music is unheard before. It is also interesting but it need not be interesting to be new.
If you are a non-pro user but wish to be given the chance to have a pro account, this is the comp for you!

Hope to see you all there :)
hi what do you think about my score?
The first one is made to be played by synthesizers/MIDI Programs, which are connected to three speakers or surround sound and is impossible to be "sung" by humans, due to it's rhythms and speed.
The second one, is a piece which is about a constant, sometimes slightly changing continuity and the breaking of this continuity (and it's written for 24 Violins)
Thx for any nice comments,
I first read about this yers ago when I discovered James Tenney's work ! I too have been trying to copy it here . Micro tones and glissandi very low frequency sounds like a good idea ! Gonna try some stuff !
has anyone been able to emulate the Shephard's tone within musescore? I see a lot of film composers utilizing this effect and I feel it really fits within the kind of style I want to create. I'm trying to just start off with scales that seem to ascend forever but it seems there's a gap in the sound when octaves flip (especially in the higher register). Any input about the Shephard's tone is appreciated :)
Every (by now) should know about the color notes plugin that makes everything rainbow color. But what if I don't want a Skittles themed sheet music?
Well, I'm here to save the day!
The first step is to find the default plugins, which are (on the mac) inside of the application itself (you click show package contents from the right click menu, and then Contents>Resources>Plugins). We're looking for color_notes (or something like that)
Copy it and paste it into another folder, and open it either with a text editor or Musescore's plugin creator.
This part requires a bit of knowledge about Hex Color Codes (or this site: http://www.color-hex.com/ )
You're going to change the values in the very beginning of the code (don't touch the last one that's on its own, that is used to reset the colors to black if it's used again). I haven't tested it, but I'm fairly certain you have to keep all the values in order for it to work. Be sure to use the 6 figure value for the code, not the RBG or CYMK or whatever else.
Then save it, run it, and BAM! Ya got them pretty colo(u)rs.
So I already wrote dubstep on musescore and i was wondering if anybody has any suggestions. not I don't think anything too extreme will be possible on here so anything other than that is okay.
I've updated my song "Inspiration: Before the Journey"! It's still a work in progress, so I'd really appreciate it if you listened to it and gave me some feedback! Just make sure to comment on the actual song, not this discussion. Otherwise I won't see it ;D
Here's the song: https://musescore.com/aaron_david/inspiration-before-the-journey-wip
I've started a
CUSTOM POKEMON SOUNDTRACK CONTEST SUPER EDITION!
That's right, create your own main-series Pokemon themes. That means at least the following:
-3 town/city themes
-3 route themes
-Wild Pokemon Battle
-Gym Leader Battle
-ALL CUSTOM ARRANGED! ARRANGED AS IN COMPOSED BUT WITH CONVENTIONAL POKEMON STYLE!
It's legal as long as:
-Contains at least a treble clef and a bass clef
-Parts are clearly defined and separated (double barlines/text at top of page/timings in description)
-Has all required parts IN ONE SCORE UPLOADED TO MUSESCORE.COM
Wild Pokemon Battle guide is here: https://musescore.com/groups/pokegeeks/discuss/1352521
-Preferably have percussion.
-If you used a different soundfont than the default to make the piece, link it in the description or create a videoscore.
-Loop once and fade out at end of each part (if you can't do this, just create an alternate ending or something).
-Separating parts and uploading to external website for easy downloading (in case one of your themes are so good that someone HAS to get it without opening up MS and cutting and pasting and all that)
-Bonus for 10 or more instruments! (what bonus, I don't know)
-Bonus also to amazingly clever or awesome themes. People will know it when they hear it.
-Bonus to those who do more than the required.
-Letting people know of your processes in creating the score.
-Making up town names.
-Rival Battle (for rival music be sure to give personality)
-Elite Four Battle
-Enemy Team Battle
-Legendary Pokemon Battle
-SPECIFIC Legendary Battles?
DEADLINE: June 4, 2016. Scoring period will last a week and end on January 30. Results should be announced by February 7.
IMPORTANT: To submit, simply reply the URL to the listings post. I'll make the list at Pokegeeks (https://musescore.com/groups/pokegeeks) of the pieces people submit.
The winners are chosen based on their score's favorite:views ratio.
Think of yourself playing a new Pokemon game. What music do you think you would hear at each location? If you were to make that game, what kind of personality or theme would the game have? Once you plan exactly whatever style you want, and create a melody, all you have to do is let yourself go. Or at least that works with me.
Spread the word and discuss! Let me know if I forgot anything. ^_^
I'd love opinions, advice, critique or otherwise on the piece!
