  1. My composition teacher made a series of videos discussing this. Very controversial, I think... But, I like his theory. Start here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yga8EEAQFqM
  2. Blatter is perfect for instrumentation. I have studied that in Uni. Now, my orchestration skills are lacking, but I think I'll read Piston's work. I suggest Blatter + Piston being the perfect combo for an all-encompassing instrumentation/orchestration coverage.
  3. Ian is completely right. We have the luxury of "thinking" about the music... a lot. We can pour over it. Performers may not always have that luxury. Personally, I think of performers as my instruments. I want to be as efficient and simple with them as possible. Give them what they're comfortable with without compromising my vision. It's all about clear communication.
  4. Hi guys! So, I disappeared for a bit. Life got rough. I ended up needing to get some major health help, and I kind of dropped off all my online responsibilities for a while during my recovery. In any case, I'm back around for the time being. I'm getting some surgery done in June, and I'll be on rest for the next few months. For personal news, I am graduating from IU Jacobs School of Music with a BM in Vocal Performance and a minor in composition. I'm returning in the fall for my Masters. I also got an Associate Instructor position at IU, where I'll be teaching voice. For composer news, I just finished a song cycle that a friend of mine is premiering in the fall. Should be fun! I am also working on my first one act opera based on Samson and Delilah! I'll be posting the libretto tonight for your scrutiny. I am sure that this will keep my attention for quite some time. For vocalist news, I just premiered a one man concert opera in February. I am also doing some chorus work in Magic Flute at IU, and I am preparing to produce the Baritone role in an opera called Thump. It's based on Edgar Poe's Tell Tale Heart. I will get to work on posting that libretto and review some pieces! Hope y'all are well. -Con
  5. What you WANT is a graduate assistantship! This is where you teach undergrads during your graduate studies, and they pay you a stipend for your work! It pays for MOST (if not all) of your tuition. :D
  6. Yes, you can earn merit scholarships in US universities. No guarantees, of course. :)
  7. Who?! I probably know this person! :D Also, consider Indiana if you're open to experimental music of any kind. We're a research school, so we're writing "research" music. :) Plus, if you're around, we can be friends. hahaha. At least let me know if you come to audition, and I can put you up in my apartment without you having to "find a place" to stay.
  8. Me? Partying? No way. I'd much rather spend the evening meditating and watching Anime. Not a big "people person".
  9. No. lol. Not interested in soccer in the least.
  10. I'm currently here (have been for 10 days), I'll be home in two weeks!
  11. Hey all, I've been preparing for a couple of weeks to make the brief visit to Germany. I will be there from July 3rd till July 27th. I'll be around when I get back! If I have pretty steady wifi and some downtime, I might stop in. But, if you need me, I'll get a PM or something. See ya, Connor.
  12. At Indiana, we have a collaboration. Once a year we come together and score some of the film students' projects. We call it Double Exposure. It's a fun process! I want to conduct the pieces next year. We also, kind of related but not, have a collaboration with the Ballet department, where we put together pieces for them to choreograph. It's a big fundraiser and we call it Hammer and Nail. :)
