Biography [4] Legendian

May 21, 2019

so this is more of a send off but a biography just the same. thanks again to @OatmealBlonde for doing a terrific job on this.

   Our interview today begins with an ending. John Lavingstony, known best by his iconic fox and the user name Legendian, has announced his eventual departure, ending nearly eight months of involvement in the Musescore community. Musescore News seized the opportunity to interview him for his story...

News: We'll start with some easy questions; what's your favorite color and place to visit?
Legendian: My favorite color is Blue; my favorite place to visit would be the National Red Wood Forest, and Catalina Island.

News: Do you have any interesting facts about yourself or funny stories to share?
Legendian: Something about me that most people don't know, is that I used to sell rocks as a kid (age 8), I'm friend's with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), and I'm a pretty close relative to Carrie Fisher.
My most embarrassing moment is when I was in the drive way to Tommy's Burgers, I accidentally shot the paper casing of my straw perfectly at the window receptionist straight through the car window on accident... I'd never seen my friend's face turn that shade of purple in my life. Couldn't even hear him laugh. xDD

News: Okay; now let's hear your Musescore story. Where did you start, and how successful do you see yourself now?
Legendian: I didn’t even know MuseScore existed until December of 2018 when my friend’s sister told me about it and how useful it was to find music created by others. So, I created an account, downloaded songs, then realized I had a natural gift to arrange songs by ear and decided to take things to the next step. Before I knew it, I had gotten 116 followers merely about 5 months later. I would say I’m kinda successful. My followers to score ratio is 116/5 so I’d say those are pretty good stats.

News: Speaking of followers, who are some of your best supporters on Musescore?
Legendian: My first follower was BotW Link and my last follower is Flat2.5. My favorite person on MuseScore would most definitely be “my twin” (Jaybird1). He’s an incredible guy who’s kind and shares the same values as me..... (as well as having the same of pretty much everything else as me. 😂😂😂). He's a great guy and has an amazing talent for arranging and composing (can't wait for you guys to here his compositions)! I also have loved the company of CountryHomes with her enthusiastic, kind, cheerful and comedic personality, Super Goron’s joy and geekiness with BotW, and BotW Link’s ideas and talent. Love it. 😂

News: So why do you think people have followed you, and do you have similar expectations when following other users?
Legendian: What I think makes people follow me is that I try to be kind to everyone. I can relate almost to everyone I’ve talked to on here and I believe that they appreciate that. I’ll follow those I really enjoy talking to more than those who have good scores. To me, scores and talent doesn’t define one’s personality or being, but on how they display themselves despite fame and recognition.

News: You won't be around Musescore for much longer, so how would you like to be remembered?
Legendian: When I leave MuseScore soon, I'd like everyone to remember me as someone who was kind, reassuring, someone who you could always look towards for help, someone you could always have a good time with and know you'd make a friend with afterwards. That's my wish. Most of all, I just hope everyone will remember me. I know I haven't been a member for very long, but I think I'd like that.

And that finished our brief interview with Legendian, the composer, musician, and good friend to many on Musescore. He will be missed, but we also celebrate the new chapter that he's beginning. Fortunately, his profile (
will remain open, allowing more users to find his work. Follow him for a highly anticipated website reveal!
