    Dreams, I have

    Well resolving sustained chords with 7th chords is usually a nice way to maintain 'some' tension. So yes dissonance. But that doesn't feel like what's wrong, I think it's lacking the feeling of a third. I feels like there is some emptiness in the structure. I have a dream (Yes) [applause] that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice (Yeah), sweltering with the heat of oppression (Mhm), will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I think if you could mimic what the crowd was feeling rather than what MLK is saying it'd gain that tension, that emotion. that oomph.

    Ubi Caritas (now with Verse 2)

    LOL that might have been because I forgot "Deus Ibi Est". I’ll fix that some point this week.
  3. I'm starting off the first verse and was wondering if this is an 'acceptable' idea. It's mostly an idea right now, but I didn't want to stray to far and not be able to save myself. What do you like? What don't you like? Did I do the words justice (properly set the music to the words)? Here are the Translated Words Ubi cáritas et amor, Deus ibi est. = Where charity and love are, there is God. 1. Congregávit nos in unum Christi amor. 2. Exsultémus et in ipso jucundémur. 3. Timeámus et amémus Deum vivum. 4. Et ex corde diligámus nos sincéro. 1. The love of Christ has gathered us together into one. 2. Let us rejoice and be glad in Him. 3. Let us fear and love the living God, 4. and love each other from the depths of our heart.

    Ubi Caritas style

    I've listened to a couple different Ubi Caritas settings and can't seem to get the repetition they are doing. Can explain what is the (usual) thing to do?
  5. I used the definition given on wikipedia which I think is writing the root, then adding melody with different steps. I couldn't understand half of what wikipedia was saying. So could someone more clearly explain counterpoint?
  6. Some Guy That writes Music

    No idea what this symbol means

    repeat? watch your pace? you can use the note before? watch out for what it's pointing at, very important?

    Limits of a Viola?

    What should I expect from a viola? Can It play a high F5? Can it play it well?
  8. Some Guy That writes Music

    I can't explain in title.

    I was writing a song with a dotted-eighth-and-sixteenth swing on two eighth notes. And I was hoping to have someone start on the upbeat before a measure and was wondering if I had to notify the instrumentalist that it is only a sixteenth, and if so, in what way? Also how can I imply a fermata without putting a fermata, I don't want it to be taken to heavily or for the singers to treat it very differently, it's basically supposed to be a one note 'rall.'.

    Menu Music

    The Drum beat to me makes it feel 'not' suspenseful. Maybe something more subtle but, it's too 'constant' to and gives something to lean on. Maybe give the synth a drone on one note and hold it for each beat?

    In The Name of Christ

    Yeah usually those are good to add. Thanks

    In The Name of Christ

    I tried to see how quickly I could write a choral song. Answer 3> hours. Give me some feedback: Do you think I properly explained the text with my setting? Did I make a song that'd be fun and/or easy to sing? Anything that stuck out as odd or unusual in a good or bad way?
  12. Some Guy That writes Music


    This song is supposed to experience reverie (a pleasant dream) before death. Hoping for feedback and suggestions as I'm learning and hoping to improve. Also for a Q. What is a mode? I hear people speak about them but don't know what they are besides a scale, or mood in a certain key.

    Net'avi Ratme Maktsia (Georgian TTBB w/ solo Countertenor and Baritone)

    Very impressive. Very well performed, how did you transpose your voice down? Anyway, when listening to your song I felt the strain (in a good way) of the song, with mystery and then understanding by the end. A moving piece overall, and tells the 'story' well.

    i carry your heart with me (i carry it in

    It’s pretty. I have 1 problem (more of a thing to be aware about more than a suggestion to edit) oohs, aahs and similiar things including your dms, should be, not exactly avoided, but primarily for accompanying other parts (like the bass only). Not really for conveying anything meaningful. Also your “dms”, I don’t really understand meaning behind those besides adding ‘thump’.
