Update for 10/27/2016:
I would just like to inform everyone that further development of new features for Music Jotter has been finalized before the first initial release. The rest of the development of this product before release will focus on finalizing Soundfonts, bug fixes, partial integration with the web, and interface fixes if necessary. Here are the final features that have been added:
Music Scrubbing (click the mouse and drag to playback portions of a score)
Realistic Playback using up to 4 metrics (tempo, velocity, attack and duration)
There will be a value from 0 through 20. 0 indicates no realistic playback, 1 indicates a low randomness and 20 indicates the highest randomness of the 4 metrics.
Mixer finalized (mute, solo, instrument change, channel change, volume control per channel, master volume, master tempo)
The program doesn't support antialiasing on the screen, however, it supports exporting to an antialiased PDF.
Soundfont integration 95% complete. Currently fixing a few issues, but will have ability to export a WAV file.
This is another exploration into scales, as part of the Mediterranean Suite.
Lucentum is the Roman name of my city, and means Light or Star... This city is very old. It seems to be founded by the Iberos (¿Iberians?). It was a Phoenician and a Greek colony (named Akra Leuca = White Coast). Afterwards a Roman city (Lucentum), and in 8th century the Arabs entered and stayed for 800 years, they gave the actual name: Alicante (from the Arab names: Ali and Cantara, who were a couple in love that ended in tragedy, of course).
Well, this piece is a sort of nocturno with a tonal part in the beginning and in the ending.
In the middle there is a development using a Lydian - Harmonic scale: first tetrachord is lydian, second one is harmonic.
The generated chords make the mode moderately unstable (the tonic is stable Cmaj7 and there is a good cadential chord Bmin). In this part, what seem chromaticisms are, in fact, diatonic notes to the scale.
Wow...that was very pleasant to listen to. I'm playing this for the third time and it actually put my daughter to sleep while I played it hahaha. Once again and as usual the melodies you create are very beautiful and ongoing that fluctuates highs and lows that compliments each other elegantly. Good job!
