@  danishali903 : (31 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) hey guys!
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) It'll be grand
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) I'm going to write a piece for just such a venue one day...
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 09:08 PM) ew that is one ugly typo
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 09:08 PM) lol I tend to agree with you. This is the 21st century after all. I'm going to write a piece for just sic ha ven
@  DanJTitchener : (31 August 2014 - 08:36 PM) I think every composer should at least consider performances in less than ideal gravitational conditions
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 08:28 PM) I'll keep that in mind if ever I devise music for such specific circumstances
@  DanJTitchener : (31 August 2014 - 08:27 PM) Although, even that fact would be dubious in microgravity
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 08:27 PM) lol, I guess that's something
@  DanJTitchener : (31 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) umm... the strings are vertical?
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 08:25 PM) Yeah, it is. *insert bad segue here* Dan, what do you know about the harp?
@  DanJTitchener : (31 August 2014 - 08:20 PM) lol, its good
@  KJthesleepde... : (31 August 2014 - 08:15 PM) lol good to know... the desperation is starting to lift
@  DanJTitchener : (31 August 2014 - 07:06 PM) For all those out there desperate for a particularly catch pop/country song commonly misattributed to Coldplay, don't worry. Help is out there in the form of this link: https://www.youtube....?v=FFJma4HfWyw.
@  Shadowwolf3689 : (31 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) Different strokes I guess... "normal" Mahler interpretations like Bernstein sound histrionic and incoherent to me
@  danishali903 : (31 August 2014 - 01:59 PM) Really?! It sounds so soulless and dull (there are other things wrong with his Mahler besides the vibrato issue)
@  Shadowwolf3689 : (31 August 2014 - 12:52 AM) Norrington's vibrato-free Mahler is the only Mahler I like >:)
@  danishali903 : (30 August 2014 - 10:40 PM) umm I don't know of any free ones
@  DanJTitchener : (30 August 2014 - 09:10 PM) hey guys, is there a decent free alternative to something like garritan for sibelius?
@  danishali903 : (30 August 2014 - 02:15 PM) But I have heard Norrington butcher Mahler with no vibrato...
@  danishali903 : (30 August 2014 - 02:15 PM) I don't mind the "no vibrato" thing till Mendelssohn
@  orchdork02 : (30 August 2014 - 02:04 PM) It makes the strings sound very thin
@  orchdork02 : (30 August 2014 - 02:04 PM) I don't like recordings like Norrington's Beethoven where the strings use no vibrato at all in early romantic pieces
@  KJthesleepde... : (29 August 2014 - 07:08 PM) I'm looking them up now Shadow
@  danishali903 : (29 August 2014 - 07:08 PM) I've heard too many baroque pieces butchered by adding romantic elements to it (vibrato, portamento, etc)
