The first two ('Final Battle' & 'Final Battle (Dark)') are versions of the same score I wrote for my friend's video game. The third link is the main theme for the game ('The Forest').
'Final Battle (Dark)'
I can't believe it! I'm about to hit 50 followers (only need 7 more)! I know that it isn't mush, but it is something right? Tell if you would like to see an original composition, or an arrangement of a song you like. I'm going to take probably 3-5 ideas so choose wisely as I'm putting this discussion in all the groups I'm in.
Hey, if any of those awesome high school composers out there want to participate in a composition competition, I just created a group for you! :P
I am embarking on a journey to write a musical. Please email me for more information on email@example.com. I need as many people as possible.
As the title suggests, I want to start on a huge project, that requires the help of everyone! Much like Eric Witacres's Virtual Choir, I will be compiling recordings of a large number of people, into one track.
Auditions have not been announced and I will be starting a new group, dedicated to this concept. The piece we will be performing is most likely going to be one of my original compositions and will require a large amount of responsibility to everyone (making sure they play their part at the correct tempo and sounds decent).
If you are interested, the link is http://musescore.com/groups/virtual-orchestra-group
If you have any further questions, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for everyone's support !!!
Hope to see you in my orchestra
Hey guys! I finally found a way to post some music onto Musescore. Now I can show you where I have been the past few months of being M.I.A.! Check out the big project that I have been working on. I'm going to try to make this as a commitment.

Auditions have started and will run through the 13th of June. The piece we will be performing is most likely going to be one of my original compositions and will be a huge undertaking.
As of right now, we are short of String players and Vocalists, but all auditions are welcome. If you are interested or would like to audition, the link is below and you can email me, at the email below.

Hey guys... I have a bit of a dilemma... I have been playing piano for a long time now, and have decided I want to start recording and sharing my works... However, my problem is this: I have an upright piano in the house, and access to the church's baby grand. (Key to church and permission to use it...) The only problem is I have not recording equipment, besides a cheap camera. I don't have tons of money to spend. I know how much good recording equipment costs, and just can't afford that. (17 years old, has college, a nearby cash car purchase, and a lawn business to maintain with funds...) Does anyone have any good suggestions?
As further incentive (other than helping a poor soul...), The piece I am working on now is a full piano transcription of Ashboy's Fugue of the storm, one of the most popular (and difficult) playable pieces on this site. I plan on having it done and polished in a week or two, and making a videoscore, but I really do not have good enough recording equipment for such a good piece.
THANKS TO ALL!!!!
I just wanted to let you know that I am shifting my focus for the next month or so from producing small 4 or 5 minute compositions to working on one large project. I am doing something new here, and hope to inspire some of you to try the same thing. We all dream of being able to compose a soundtrack for a film, but it is very hard to get that opportunity, much less practice for that.
What I have done is create the plot to a film in my mind. Basically I spent a few days thinking about it, developing a plot, characters, story, etc. Mainly I tried to visualize it, take down notes that probably only I will understand, and basically make it so I can SEE the movie, even though it doesn't exist. Now comes the fun part.
I started composing a soundtrack to said invisible movie, as I call it, with staff text above all of the notes which explain what is going on, what is being said, what the scene is like, etc. It is sort of like reading a book with a soundtrack, but organised so that you only can read what is happening as the music plays. It is far from finished, needs a lot of refining, and I only have about 5 minutes done so far. I would like to compose about an hour's worth here, and make it into a video score where the text comes up rather than using staff text.
To give you guys a general idea of what I am doing, I have used CamStudio to record my screen as I played it. Just watch the 5 minute video, and see what I mean by an invisible video.
PLEASE TRY TO VISUALIZE THE MOVIE AS I GIVE IT, (mainly starting with Scene 1)... KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS FAR FAR FAR FROM UNFINISHED, AND I PLAN ON FINISHING THE ENTIRE PIECE AS A ROUGH DRAFT, THEN EDITING IT. THIS IS NOT MEANT AS A PLEASE CRITIQUE THE SONG... THAT COMES LATER WHEN THE ROUGH DRAFT IS DONE! RIGHT NOW I ONLY WANT FEEDBACK ON THE GENERAL IDEA!
(This song needs headphones and the volume turned all the way up...)
DOWNLOAD ONLY... DO NOT WATCH IN BROWSER, THE QUALITY IS HORRIBLE!!!!!
I know one of the biggest challenges for most new musescore users is how to add tremolo and pizzicato to strings, and mute to trumpets. I know it baffled me for a while, but I want to spread the word on how it is done in a way that it will generate actual AUDIO PLAYBACK!!!!!
(I will be using tremolo as an example, but the process is exactly the same for pizzicato and mute.)
Step 1: Click on the note where you want to start. When that note is highlited (usually in blue), click Ctrl + T (Or use the menu to do Create > Text > Staff Text).
Step 2: Type whatever you want here, although just to avoid confusion, you should write "tremolo" Or even some specific directions, like "Slow Tremolo" or "Furious Tremolo".
Step 3: Click away from the text box. Now drag it until it is in a suitable place. (The text box will often initially be created inside of some notes, so just make sure it is clearly out of the way, yet right above the notes you want to start the tremolo at, similar to if you wanted to add a tempo text box.)
Step 4: Right Click on the text box you just created, and in the dropdown box, click Staff Text Properties.
Step 5: Check the "Channel" box, and then click the Tremolo option.
Step 6: At this point, you are done, and musescore will play the tremolo sound. However, if you want your piece to be readable and playable by musicians, you should add real musical tremolo marks onto the notes, via the palette on the left. (The same one that has dynamics, lines, Accidentals, etc.) THESE MARKINGS DO NOTHING FOR THE MUSESCORE PLAYBACK, BUT ARE NECESSARY IF YOU WANT THE PIECE TO BE PLAYABLE BY MUSICIANS.
Let me know if you have any questions, and try to spread the word! I will be copying and pasting this discussion in as many groups as I can! Thank you all and please give me feedback!
(P.S. you will probably not be seeing any more compositions from me for a while. I am currently working on a LARGE orchestral suite, hopefully over an HOUR LONG. This will be in the form of a full soundtrack as a demonstration of what I can do. I have no movie to go along with, but I will via text tell the listener what is supposed to be happening. I wanted to say this to explain my soon to be absence from the sheet music list. I will keep listening, commenting, and participating in discussions, however!)
Every Month, a theme will be given and anyone who want's to participate can. All you have to do is compose a piece and submit it to this page, everyone is welcome. Also at the same time an arranging competition will go on, I will name a song and whoever makes the best arrangement wins. I am excited to see what you have in store, First Competition will start Feb. 1, 2014. GOOD LUCK. http://musescore.com/groups/composition-contests

Okay, So I have a concert coming up at the end of the year and I need a solo piece, a duet piece and a trio piece ALL for Flute. Not too hard but not too easy. If they are easy, make them SOUND hard. If your piece is selected, when the piece is played, YOUR name will be announced as the composer, along with the piece's title that you feel is appropriate for it. If I choose the piece and all goes over well, you may have to write and compose a piece for a full band setting for a concert for my concert band. So PLEASE participate! It's a great way to get your name out there and have your music played and finally heard!!
