Im back! Feedback wanted and Competition

After my first year of college and well into my second, Ive finally had time and the passion to write music again. It is through this catharsis that I am able to deal with the trauma that is bad test grade XD. As such, I am wanting to stoke the first in this group again. I made this when I was barely a freshman in higschool, a mere baby when it came to understanding music, but now Ive aged and matured and I'm only marginally better.(oof I keep destorying myself. This is fun) so this post has t6eo sections. One where I'm asking for you feedback on some of my pieces and another talking about a competition I want to run for this group.

The pieces
Vermillion

https://musescore.com/user/173013/scores/5293923

This piece is for a character I created. More details in its descriptions. It features a mixed trio of Violin, Cello, and Piano.

Harlequin

https://musescore.com/user/173013/scores/5346536

This piece is just me having some fun writing what was on my mind but it does hold the image of one my character's in mind. He is an android who can feel and struggles with his code and soul to make his judgements.

Competition!!!
So, It is a rather simple competition. I want you to write a piece about an experience in you life this past year, 2018, it can have an instrumentation, but you must have a story to go along with the music. Make me feel what you were feeling in the time you are trying to replicate in sound. You have until the end of January and I will be making another post for this soon with more details.

MuseScore "Themed" Drum Corps/ Marching Band Show

Ive had this idea to make a show that is only with MuseScore composers. It will also have a marching band version along with it.

Please comment your selections of music with your full name (I know its weird asking for that but I dont want something like this on the cover of the score ex. "Concert Cencerto for Bass Trombone by Yaboisaxplayer209". Sounds weird right.?)

Please dont submit other peoples works, show them this discussion first and let them make the comment.

If you cant find any, you can also comment some famous pieces. Like "Mother Earth Fanfare by David Maslanka"

Im really excited to work on this as a project by myself to expand my abilities to write. :)

I cant decide

I have to play one of my pieces at school and im gonna choose between these two

Ab major Waltz:
https://musescore.com/user/26808935/scores/5228495
Will take longer to learn(hard), but it has a happy mood

Homesick:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7-8hXIMVbg
Won't take long(easy), but it sounds sad, possibly even dull (people will think im sad?)

They both last the same amount of time, give or take 10 seconds.
They both definitely need some polishing up
But which do you think sounds more interesting/ better?
Just let me know in this comment bit, thanks

Hi guys! I'm having trouble completing this...

 
I'm currently doing a collection of pieces in all 24 keys, for piano solo. I need help completing the set, so I'd appreciate it if you'd help out composing a short (less than or around 4 minutes) in G# minor (for now). The only criteria it must fulfill in order for it to be considered in the project is that the style of the piece must be different from the rest. Example: the piece in F major is written in a waltz, the one in Eb major is written 4/4 against 3/4, C minor has a Prokofiev (I think) feel to it, F minor is written in jazz, etc. Also, it must show some form of virtuoso/impressionism (whichever you are aiming for). I am interested in the dances forms (tango, marzuka, minuet, sarabande...), but anything goes for now. Credits will be given for the piece if it makes it in, as well as a favourite and a follow, very well deserving.

Here's the piece:
https://musescore.com/user/151230/scores/5162921


PS: I might reject some pieces if I find the piece unsuitable for the project, I'll also include critique/reasons for the said decision.
Love to hear from you guys!

Using apps is secure or not?

As everyone is using apps for music and other sectors like a bank, have you listen to quick book app which is being used in small businesses for managing their finance data. is this safe to give your personal bank information to the third party. I asked it at Quickbooks support https://quickbooksupports.co here they told me this app provides its own security plans. okay, this is great but those apps we use individually are really secure?

Score advice

I don't mind listening to anyone's music and giving comments and critique, so if anyone wants me to listen just let me know! :D

BTW I'd appreciate it if anyone could give some feedback on mine XD

Score advice

https://musescore.com/knviolain/by-the-falls

This is a little piece that I composed recently. I'd appreciate it if anyone could provide some feedback, and also maybe a name for the piece (since I haven't found one that quite fits yet...). Thanks!

Anyways, I came up with this piece after listening to Philip Glass' String Quartet No 3 - Mishima, and the simplistic style that he wrote with. I also really liked his use of polyrhythms in that piece, so I decided to try to incorporate them in this one as well...

Thoughts / Comments

Hello everyone. I'm a highschool student that's relatively new to musescore (joined a few months ago) and I was just hoping that some of you could check out some of my scores & give me feedback. I'm hungry for ways to be a better arranger & one day composer, so this could be extremely helpful & the feedback could be either good or bad. My ears are open to everything. Thank you!

Need comments on a slightly more difficult Persona 5 song transcription

Hello all! I just finished my second transcription project:
https://musescore.com/user/47446/scores/4010151
The original audio URL is https://youtu.be/DXOpUJe9Hv0
Not sure if I did everything correctly, especially Measure 9-16 sound a little messy (not even sure if I got the chords right). But I'm quite pleased that I was able to push myself a little further :D

Advertisement: my first project is "Last Surprise" and I think it's pretty accurately done:

Enjoy!

Followers

We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)

THE WINNER OF THE “WIN A PAINTING CONTEST” IS….

This task was so hard, I never thought that so many good songs would be posted to this group. I firstly would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to post songs here. There were about seventy entries. I narrowed it down to fourteen. It’s not that the others were bad, far from it. Most were worthy of a record, but there are some things, for me, that make a really great lyrical song.
1) The tune
2) The message of the lyrics, rhymes, alliterations, language etc.
3) Tempo vs note length (syllables per minute), cadence of the lyrics in time with the notes, (“Singability”)
4) The clarity of the melody against the other instruments
5) Some catchy riff to make the song stand out and be remembered

After listening to these fourteen over ten times each, the decision got harder and harder so I left if for a while and came back to it.
I narrowed it down to four and finally settled on one.

WINNER IS:
“We All Have Bad Days” https://musescore.com/user/122300/scores/1173296
Written by luta (pro).

If you did not win, don’t feel bad. So many entries were so close. You guys write some beautiful music and lyrics.

To listen to and read the lyrics of over a hundred songs, go to:
