  1. I wonder how much it will cost to someone to digitalize a music score which is handwritten by the composer and to get it on some notation software like Sibelius. I think the price will depend on the pages. Let's say in my case it's a score of 250 pages. Also its a vocal score (SATB and Piano) 1st question: What other parameters should I consider on the price? Like the how many notes per page maybe? or something else? 2nd question: What's the fastest way to make the score (i mean except using only your mouse) 3rd question: Do you know any other notation software better than SIbelius to do this work? 4th question: How much may be the price of this?
  2. "Vocalise for Nine Voices" - music video Who I am: My name is Kostika Çollaku and I'm an independent composer from Thessaloniki, Greece. I am 23 and I compose contemporary classical music. I think it's better to know me through my work so here is a link to my blog were you can listen all my compositions: http://kostikacollaku.blogspot.gr/ What I want to do:I want to shoot a music video to accompany my musical piece 'Vocalise for nine voices'. I want to shoot it in an abandoned factory in Thessaloniki, Greece, that looks like this: A couple things about the piece: Vocalise was composed from June to September of 2012, to be played on Thessaloniki's Concert Hall on 10th November 2012, amongst classic pieces, in the 25th anniversary concert of the “Mixed Choir of Thessaloniki”. The piece lasts 4min. and 12sec. This drawing of Matthieu Barrère summarizes for me everything the piece is about better than I could put it to words: the thing we call "Life", and it's two key reference points, "Birth" and "Death". Immediately after the concert I wanted to make a better recording of the piece but this time with nine voices instead of a full choir and a solo baritone, meaning one person per voice. So I gathered nine very talented opera singers from Thessaloniki and we started rehearsals. My goal was to make a good studio recording and a good video clip. On Sunday, December 23th we accomplished the first part, making a pretty good recording of the piece. You can listen to a sample above. The full piece will be available once we get the second part of the goal. This is where you come in! What I need:I need your support to fund the making of the video: money to rent serious, professional equipment like a good camera, rails, lights etc. The shooting is scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 19th, and the video will be ready by the first days of February... with your help. The piece and the video will be freely available on the internet and there will be no proceeds, although you do get some perks of course! The founds needed are a pretty modest sum for a project like this, I think, but we' re content to stick to the absolutely necessary. With Greece stuck in a continuing financial crisis, I think it means a lot to prove that good art can still happen, even under strenuous circumstances, when some see it as a luxury. I do believe realizing this little vision will be a creative stand against the doom and gloom surrounding us. Even more so if you become a part of it. Thank you for your time and your support. Please let me know if you have any questions. Kostika Çollaku Here is the link where you can help the project with a small contribution. http://www.indiegogo.com/vocalisemusicvideo/x/889366

  6. Hello I live in Greece and I was wondering if you know anything about scholarships given in composition. I don't care where. I am thinking seriously to do something about it cause here the things are worst than you can imagine, I mean you don't have much opportunities to do anything on that direction. So if you know anything please let me know...
  7. I know that they are a bunch of chords but this is the main concept that came to me first and I don't won't to write something extramusical.How do you think romance and irony can represented?I mean should I consentrate more on harmony on orchestration and in which way??? I forgot that the piece is for a love-scene (short-film) but the director wants the music to be romantic of course with some ironic sparks...

  11. I was wondering how irony and romance can be together on an instrumental piece. The only thing that comes to me is the progression of fifths C, G7, C7, F7, Bb7 Eb7, Ab7 (with minor 7th of course) ...and the other one is with diminished chords like C, Ddim, Dbdim, Cdim, Bdim, Bbdim and so on... And those two ways are to help the melody be as more chromatic. So can you tell me another way that you think that might express better irony and romance???
  12. Finale have some more realistic sounds but if you want great sounds you should learn a sequencer like Cubase, Logic so you can put vst instruments. Also you can compose on sibelius and then import the midi file to the sequenser.
  13. The links are working I just download it both!!!
