  1. I've been working on an opera project with some colleagues for a long while, and some of it requires custom notation. After much discussion, we’ve come up with notation for chromatic/atonal mordents pictured above. These would completely replace the classical mordents we know from the Baroque, since frequent use has made it necessary to always specify the interval at which the ornament is. I would like to know what you think of these, if they seem sensible and functional to you, or not. For vote-counting convenience, please VOTE HERE. If you vote no, please also explain why in a comment. Thank you.
  2. Thanks again, Austenite. I've solved my problem. This thread can be closed now.
  3. Of course! That's where I first heard her, from his piece Ramblings of a Social Network! :facepalm: That's what you get for asking a question at 4 in the morning.
  4. Sharon Rogers. Cooratura soprano. Fresno, California. Anyone know her in any way?
  5. Heh, I'm just posting here because you PM'd me, because I have to tell you I am terrible at this kind of things and I keep forgetting all sorts of rules of counterpoint because I frankly cannot care enough about it. I listen to stuff and if I like it I like it. Nothing more. If you still want me to say something about them, then the voices all sound great to me.
  6. You misspelled cowbell

      ...dative of equine perspiration?

  8. Is that what they're calling it now?

  9. Like your p...............roblems.

  10. Pussies, that's what the world is made of. I'm sure sooner or later something will break off around the Middle East big enough to shake off all the masks of hypocrisy in this big planetary theatre play of "globalization" and send everything spiraling down into the ultimate shitfest.
  11. I don't like the UK's anthem, but I LOVE Rule Britannia and I think it should be their anthem. I don't give a flying rat's donkey if it's imperialist (despite the fact that I like imperialism when I'm the core of the empire), people should grow a pair and have music played because it's cool and sounds nice, regardless of what it represents. For example, if the Nazi anthem were nice (it sucks, though) I'd like it anyway, regardless of what it meant. Apply the same reasoning I made for the UK to the US, replacing their dreadful and pussified anthem with Hail to the Chief. So, adding La Marseillaise and the Russian Anthem (which I believe is the same as the USSR with different lyrics, no? If it is, THEY'RE THE ONLY SMART PEOPLE IN THE WORLD), here's my top 4: 1- Rule Britannia 2- La Marseillaise 3- USSR / Russian anthem 4- Hail to the Chief
  12. Who cares if your melody has influences? It's very hard for you to unknowingly mimick a melody in its entirety! After composing my stuff I've heard a bit of Zimmer's Tortuga in my string quartet, six notes of Liar Liar's soundtrack in my operetta, and other stuff I didn't notice had been there. I think you can't create without some influence, so what's the problem?
  13. Uploading isn't working. I start uploading a piece, it says "Uploading..." and the little blue progress bar never shows up. It stays like that indefinitely. HLEP!
  14. Full orchestra required? As in, woodwinds, brass, percussion and strings?
