  1. The chat is back!

    1. froglegs

      Thanks to Occupy YC! Proof that the occupy movement DOES work!!

      YAY! :D

      Occupy Music Street :D We're Oms!

  2. ... Yes. The chatbar has been gone for quite a number of days. It feels empty and weird without seeing it there. Thanks!
  3. Calvin and Hobbes? Haha, Heckel, is Calvin trying to gobble down Hobbes' leg? It must be yummy~tiger meat...ah.

  4. 1) Treat the singers as humans 2) Be friendly, because nobody likes to work under the baton of scary conductors. It's good to be authoritative occasionally, and by "authoritative" i mean strict. 3)Argument? That's actually quite unlikely to happen, if you're a good conductor, and if they're really ethical musicians lol. 4) Complaining about passages is good because it identifies the problem. Solve it with them and don't forget to ask them about their opinions as well. It's making music as a group together! All the best!
  5. You'll probably come up with a concerto when you're in the bathroom since the resonance is good for a soloist.
  6. For me when I first heard music, the element I cared about most is the melody. If the melody is..erm.."boring", or if there's absolutely NO obvious melody, then I would just switch my ears off immediately. But as I slowly step into the musical world I began to take note of more details, like "wow how do they piece these together" etc. To really appeal to non-musicians, I think there must be something that is catchy in the piece. Well things are different for musicians now. :)
  7. Happy hari raya puasa!

      Some composers' prowess only reveal as they mature.

  9. Is the music today still a form of expression? Or has it become purely experimental?..

      I do express myself most of the time, my works usually mean something

    4. VioletXuu


      heh, personally I prefer works that express emotional stuff as well as stories :)

      you mean, "must-etch"? :)

  12. Yup, as Heckel said, it's really fun to create harmonics in the strings. Both artificial and natural harmonics are possible to create with the strings instrument. For example for Liebermann's Piccolo Concerto, the strings in the introduction have "free" bowings for the artificial harmonics. It is used mainly to provide a subtle background effect, and it's most effective in creating a mysterious/beautiful/peaceful effect. :D :D :D
  13. I would wish to play the oboe! It has such a beautiful sound. :)
