Tuba mirum spargens sonum
Per sepulcra regionum,
Coget omnes ante thronum.
Mors stupebit et natura, cum resurget creatura, judicanti
responsura.
Liber scriptus proferetur, in quo totum continetur, unde mundus judicetur.
Judex ergo cum sedebit, quidquid latet apparebit, nil inultum
remanebit.
Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? quem patronum rogaturus, cum vix justus sit securus?

Nederlands:
De trompet, zijn wonderbaarlijke klank verspreidend,
over graven regionen,
roept allen bijeen voor de troon.
Dood en natuur zullen verstomd staan,
wanneer het schepsel zal verrijzen,
om voor de Rechter rekenschap af te leggen.
Het boek zal gebracht worden,
waarin alles staat genoteerd,
op basis waarvan de wereld geoordeeld zal worden.
Wanneer de rechter zijn plaats inneemt,
zal alles dat verborgen is te voorschijn komen (aan het licht komen)
niets zal ongewroken blijven.
Wat zal ik beklagenswaardige dan zeggen?
Op welke beschermer zal ik een beroep doen,
wanneer zelfs de rechtvaardige mens ternauwernood veilig is?

Litt. English/Latin:
The trumpet (tuba) spreading (spargens) its won'drous sound (mirum sonum)
over (per) graves (sepulcra) regions (regionum),
calls (coget) all (omnes) before (ante) the throne (thronum).
Death (mors) and nature (et natura) will be astounded (stupebit),
when the (with=cum) creature (creatura) will rise again (resurget),
to be hold accountable (responsura) for the Judge (judicanti).
A written book (liber scriptus) will be brought forth (proferetur),
in which (in quo) all (totum) is written (litt: in which all contains; continetur),
by which (unde) the world (mundis) will be judged (judicetur).
When (ergo cum; so with) the Judge (Judex) takes his place (sedebit),
what (quidquid) is hidden (latet) will be revealed (apparebit; will appear),
nothing (nil) will remain (remanebit) unavenged (unultum).
What (Quid sum; what at all) then (tunc) shall a wretch (miser) (like me) then say (dicturus; futurum; shall say)?
On which (quem) intercessor (patronum) will be called upon (rogaturus),
when (cum) even the righteous (man) (justus) will hardly (vix) be safe (sit securus)?

This is an old rhyme version:
The mighty trumpet's wondrous tone
shall rend each tomb's sepulchral stone
and summon all before the Throne.
Now death and nature with surprise
behold the trembling sinners rise
to meet the Judge's searching eyes.
Then shall with universal dread
the Book of Consciences be read
to judge the lives of all the dead.
For now before the Judge severe
all hidden things must plain appear;
no crime can pass unpunished here.
O what shall I, so guilty plead?
and who for me will intercede?
when even Saints shall comfort need?

This is quite a hard one to play and even harder to perfect. I don't feel this is a good score. So thank you to justanotherwhovian with their piano version of this. (Still WIP)

This is quite a hard one to play and even harder to perfect but I have done it. I feel more confidence with this score and have tried to get it in sink to the actual music as accurately as possible. So thank you to justanotherwhovian with their piano version of this. (No longer WIP)
------------------------------------UPDATE-----------------------------------
Bars 44-67 on Oboe and Tuba are fixed

Thank you Fatze-Matze for your "lost version" it has let me put corrected compositions in.
I did use some of your work.
------------------------------------UPDATE-----------------------------------
Turns out the sound of it wasn't in sync because of incorrect notation. I changed the key signatures and moved all the notes down by 1.

Okay, so you know how i'm a fanatic of fanmade islands? This is also, one of my own. If you want your (original) monsters to be morbidly curious and travel down the volcano, recommend one in the description! Also, i give credit to ThatHiddenCharacter! He originally created Jumpet, so i decided to make a design for it, and it looked a little like Sneyser with a volcano in his back. So when he recommended a monster, he didn't recommend anything specific. He did recommend a stringed instrument to play whenever Jumpet doesn't (besides the intro). The he recommended a brass monster to have a duet for when Smogma plays. I already had three in mind. I chose Tikiba, a tiki that blows fire out of his top to make a tuba sound. The ones i excluded were Bugelight and Torchorn. Both brass, and having to do with fire, but i already had melody, and i didn't need any chords. Plus, I needed bass instruments (i still need some). Go and check out ThatHiddenCharacter's stuff.
UPDATE 6/30/17: I changed the score including notes and stuff. Nothing special. Oh, and i updated the description.
UPDATE 7/7/17: So I changed up Krohmdohm's track 2, and now it sounds really nice!
UPDATE 7/29/17: I have added Hibana! It's japanese for fire flower. I figured i needed something alongside the Jumpet. Then it struck me! "Why not do something exotic, more spicy for Volcano Island?" i said to myself. I figured an arpeggio alongside chords would fit! That's how Hibana came along! But sadly, i still need monsters. HELP ME!

Personality Disorder Suite

This Suite is consisted of 7 movements, arranged in the personality disorders respective clusters. For times sake, I didn’t do the following: Histrionic, Borderline, and Dependent, the first to being in Cluster B and dependent being in Cluster C. This piece is supposed to give you a sense of understanding towards these disorders in that it attempts to display what goes on in the mind of someone with the disorder.

Prelude
The prelude, or introduction sets the key and scale that will be used throughout the piece

CLUSTER A

Paranoid
This movement is in A Ukrainian Dorian because of its harmonically versatile ability. The accompaniment is consistent throughout the piece, being and A half-diminished arpeggio in the tenor and baritone voices. The bass voices drone either an A or G, acting as the base of the paranoia. The melody is simply the A Ukrainian Dorian scale descending. Each time the melody is repeated, it is added to a voice an octave higher, representing the increasing thoughts running through someone’s mind. Along with that, every time the melody is repeated, a new harmonic line is added. The driving force of this movement is the bass drum. The bass drum plays 2 sixteenth notes on every down beat, acting as a heart beat. The tempo and dynamics are always increasing, to represent the racing thoughts of a paranoid person. The movement ends with a loud and abrupt chord, while the bass voices play a descending line, ending on D# to create dissonance from the base note “A”. This represents the paranoid person’s breaking point from the intrusive thoughts.

Schizoid
This movement starts directly after Paranoid. It keeps the same accompaniment as the movement before, (but now only in the piano), in 3/4 and has a tritone (A and D#) played in the bass as opposed to just an “A”. The melody played by the “Schizoid”, which is represented by the F Tuba, is the same as the melody in Paranoid. What makes this different is what comes after the melody. The piano and choir have a melody in “A Lydian”, which is a much brighter key. This contrast represents the view of the of the schizoid vs. the “normal” world. Every time the tuba plays the melody, it starts on a lower note that before, continuing until it plays a D# as the first note. The “normal world” voicing has a new harmony added to it every time it is repeated, to reaffirm the “normality”. The movement ends with the tuba playing a descending line in half notes, to represent the Schizoid’s slip into their own world, with no concern for the “normal world”.

Schizotypal
This movement is the most unique of the bunch. The melody is just the scale, same as the other movements in this cluster, but the rhythm and general feel is totally different. The scale is played by the Bass, Soprano and Piccolo Oboe, who just play the scale up and down, increasing in speed as it goes on. The piece is in 7/4, which is a very uncommon time signature. The harp and celesta play a 16th note flourish in the soprano register, to give an “odd and mystical” feeling. The oboes eventually stop and a new melody is taken over by the strings. The piece changes between 7/4, 5/4, 3/4 and 11/8, to give the same unstable and “odd” feeling. This is to represent the Schizotypal’s seemingly odd nature.The piece ends very abruptly, with the horns holding a chord, leading to the next movement.

CLUSTER B

Antisocial
This movement is much more simple than the previous melodies. It is the same chord played by the strings (except cello), harp and bassoons (except bassoon 1). The cello and bassoon 1 play a simple melody, which is then echoed by the clarinet. This idea repeats throughout the piece. There are hidden and not so hidden dissonances which are to represent the Sociopath’s attempt at superficial charm. After the first large cycle of the piece, a brass band which is placed off-stage can be heard playing the theme from the next movement “Narcissism”. This represents the lack of care from the sociopath, and their cynical behavior.

Narcissism
This melody is the same as what the brass band plays in “ASPD”, just a descending “A Ukrainian Dorian” scale in 6/4. This movement is written in 6/4, but feels like it should be in 9/4. Most phrases end in 9/4. This hemiola gives the feeling of stubbornness that is eventually dismissed. The melody is only ever played by brass instruments to give the bombastic, cynical feeling that comes from a narcissist.

CLUSTER C

Obsessive Compulsive
This piece is a simple fugue between the violin, viola and bass. This piece is just made up of 3 sections of 3 sections of 3 (not a typo).
A melody played in 3 measures of 5/4, followed by 3 measures of 3/4 that repeat the same motif 3 times This same idea is repeated 3 times, and makes up the first section.

This whole idea is repeated 3 times, but is disrupted by a wrong note that most people would not notice. When this happens, a loud dissonant chord is played, followed by the “Knock of death” (3 loud repeated notes).

The second section is all in 3/4 following the same format as the first section

The piece ends with a confusion of time, it is written in 3/4 but feels like a mixed meter
This piece has little depth the represent the baselessness of the OCPD’s repetitive actions. I chose to do things in 3’s and 5’s because I have a cousin who does things in this manner.

Avoidant
This movement is the most distinct movement, as it doesn’t really fit the flow of the whole suite. It is a piano solo, playing a simple and empty sounding nocturne. This emptiness is to represent and Avoidant person’s feeling of inadequacy and want for refuge. This movement marks the end of the suite. There is also a version of this where it is played by a flute ensemble.


What’s Missing
Due to technical problems, I could not finish “Borderline”, which was a just a combination of a few of the other movements played by small instrument ensembles, such as saxophones, trumpets, mallets and electronic & strings.This was to represent a borderline person’s lack of identity and self care.

Histrionic was also not finished. This was a combination of a saxophone septet and string septet. I used the saxophones to represent histrionic because saxophones don’t generally belong in the orchestra, and having saxophones against strings was a classic case of what does and doesn’t fit. The soprano saxophone was “attempting” to be the most grandiose, because it needed to be the center of attention, no matter the cost.

Dependent was similar to Avoidant, in that it doesn’t follow the structure of the suite and was a nocturne. Instead of a solo instrument, it starts with specialty instruments attempting to solo, but failing because they needed support. This movement uses a theremin, glass harmonica, 2 musical saws, celesta and harpsichord.

Quantum Leap Theme (90's TV Theme)

6 parts7 pages01:115 months ago117 views
Piano, Synthesizer, Percussion, Bass, Tuba, Strings
Created 06/17/1996.

This MIDI file is my representation of the theme to Quantum Leap, the hit NBC series. This file I believe to be one of my best overall translations. I have since revised the file, adding a few things here and there and I think now it sounds true to the original. The file was created solely by ear from listening to an .au file AND an SP VCR recording of the theme over & OVER again, putting everything, every program change, pitchbend, EVERYTHING, by hand with the mouse (because even though I have a MIDI cable, it's a lot more accurate to input it directly; otherwise my MIDI quality is limited by my piano expertise) for about 3 weeks. It's very tedious work, but sometimes I get bored. . . REALLY bored.

QUANLEAP.MID marks my first attempt to use Program Changes in the music itself. This particular midi file gave me some trouble when I noticed the absence of a hi-hat from my low-quality .au file (and SLP VCR recording). To rectify this situation, I had to obtain an SP VCR recording of the file. Unfortunately, I had to wait almost TWO WEEKS for the show to re-air due to its pre-empting by TENNIS! Argh! I really hate tennis pre-empts now. Anyway, now I'm finally
finished. I hope you like it. I have no real idea who wrote the song, [EDIT: it is Mike Post] but just watch the credits of the show (check local listings) and I'm sure you'll be clever enough to figure it out. The file is configured for Extended-level setup (MIDI Channels 1 through 10).

You should have 6 playable tracks (with music on them) as follows:

Track 1: Piano/BariSax/FrenchHorn (PianoGrd)
Track 2: NewAge/Pno2/Swtooth/Tbone (NewAge)
Track 3: Variant Percussion (Standard DrumSet:Prog0)
Track 4: Funky Slap Bass (SlapBas2)
Track 5: Tuba/Flute/Trumpet/Tbone2 (Tuba)
Track 6: Harmonic Strings (Strings1)
<Tracks 1, 2, and 5 subject to Program Changes>

This file was created on Midisoft Recording Session from the MM Aud. Coll. and rehearsed on Creative Lab's Sound Blaster AWE-32 WaveTable sound card. Thanks again and enjoy the music!!!

Little Red Riding Hood - an original show for drum & bugle corps by Luke Taylor.

This show tells the story of Little Red Riding Hood, with story points written onto the score. The Introduction provides a sense of foreboding for the story to come, setting a scene with dark chords from the low brass. Into the Woods then takes us for a stroll with Red Riding Hood, where she meets the Wolf for the first time. During the ballad, Grandma Won't You Let Me In, the Wolf visits Grandma, eating her up before the hornline pays tribute to her. Red Riding Hood arrives at Grandma's house during the beginning of the percussion feature, and a Confrontation between Red Riding Hood and the Wolf ensues before the Woodcutter shows up to save her. The show culminates with a triumphant parade throughout the city to celebrate the Woodcutter's heroic actions.
