  1. Okay so this is my first post on this forum so I don't really know the etiquette or whatever, but I'll just go ahead and explain my problem. I've been wanting to compose music since before I can remember, and I play piano and guitar and I know music theory and all that jazz so it's not like I don't have the necessary tools. But every time I go to my piano to compose something, anything, I feel blocked, like I can't put what I hear in my head down on paper. Not in terms of rhythm or anything. I can hear the completed song in my head, but I just can't, or maybe I don't know how to properly
  2. Heya! I wrote this song last week and would love some feedback. Lemme know what you think! Thanks, Clay Link: Also, here are the sheets if interested: https://musescore.com/user/26861998/scores/5005981
  3. Hey all! I had a thought. After graduating with a music composition degree I found that a lot of online courises are directed towards film and game music, bit don't really educate other aspects of music composition. I feel like I am not alone here, so I have decided to start building course that would go over these missing aspects. Please leave your comments here on what you personally would like to see in a music composition course or take 2 minutes to fill out this survey Survey If this really peaks your interest, make sure you answer the last question to get early
  4. Hi all, my fiancé got me a standard iMac and MacBook Air just cause she's awesome, so before that guy try's to tell me that what I have isn't enough, I'm not able to upgrade because I am still learning and haven't gotten my foot in the door yet I have free projects that are offering me work that's it. they only run 8 gigs of RAM, and I need to get something usable for small projects orchestral wise whether it's garrison or whatever I can't spend more than like 400 at the ABSOLUTE most and even still I don't want to spend more than 200-300...are there ANY decent libraries that 8 gigs can handle
  5. EDIT: This survey is now closed, thanks to all who took part. I may publish the results in February, and if so, I will add a link here later. Hi folks - first post, so apologies to the mods if this type of post is not allowed! I am a composition student at the University of Surrey and I am throwing around a survey across the internet to gather some data on how musicians write music with music notation software - this forum seemed very lively, so I'm very interested in your thoughts. If you are someone that composes/arranges music with music notation software (Sibelius/Finale/Mus
  6. Hello? I am Hemio who studies composition as a hobby in Korea. I am not good at English so I can hardly communicate deeply, but I will try. This is a piano music that represents the Egyptian goddess.
  7. Hello I am a french pianist composer and new on this forum. Here is a link to my first piano composition album, that I recorded in a studio in France I Hope you will enjoy it. I called my album "Premières notes", that means "First notes" :) http://premieresnotes.com Sacha MENNY
  8. I realized that I tend to layer a lot of things but often have them play through the whole section in whole notes (i. E. Having a Bass and Cello holding the Bass notes) Does anyone know any scores that show examples of creative use of Rythm? I. E. the violins in (I think) Hedwigs Theme seemed really interesting but I bet that I haven't even touched the surface of this topic.

  10. Instructor: @Monarcheon Writing Requirement: Soundwalk Special Requirement: Compose a general soundwalk A soundwalk is a composition intended to guide a reader along the path you prescribe. These compositions last generally last around 30 minutes to an hour and are intended to be the most sonically engaging possible. Soundwalks are composed as lists of instructions to guide the listener on their journey. Normally, soundwalks are composed with specific locations in mind, but it is more fulfilling and viable to compose general soundwalks, where the instructions should be able to be applied in

  12. Hello everybody, Maybe this will just be my outlet topic for this horrible assignment for school, but perhaps this topic can turn into an interesting discussion. Since I have my final exams this year, I have to do a school research project, like all other pre-university students in Holland. Obviously, I chose the subject Music, because the assignment is then to compose a composition for a professional ensemble. It sounded like a lot of fun, but now the problems have begun... The assignment for Music is to write a plan, in which you describe what you want to do with the music, befor
  13. Hello, Since I am not familiar with composing (bass) guitar at all, I would like to ask some questions: Do (bass) guitarists prefer notes notated in the TAB or treble (sounding an octave lower) / bass clef? If it is the first: how does TAB work and how can I compose for the (bass) guitar in the most efficient way? Are there any special effects and how are these to be notated in the score? Examples of how these effects sound are really appreciated. Are there any limitations that I should keep in my mind when composing for the (bass) guitar? I am looking forward to y
  14. Hey, I am fairly new to composers community and what to take it seriously. So planning on applying to college after my graduation in engineering. My question is I do not know what does a good prescreening portfolio consists of. I mean what all should be done to have this portfolio to be impressive. Also they ask for original scores.

  16. I am a drummer and have been into composing music for picture for the past 8months and I have developed a deep interest in theory and composition. I am currently persuing my BE in mechanical engineering and would want to take up a major in composition. I have question on how to develop a portfolio that can be deemed "acceptable" by these college for the department of composition. I have been reading a lot of theory books. Basic theory books. Started the Fundamentals of composition by Arnold a few weeks ago. Having a hard time reading the example scores. Any advice would be gol
  17. Hello everybody, As a wind player, I can easily compose compositions for wind instruments, because I know how they are played and I have experience with playing saxophone, which is actually a combination of all woodwinds. My woodwind writing is fluent and almost without any mistakes. Orchestration for woodwinds is very easy for me. Writing for the string family is a different story, because I have never played one of the string familiy members nor do I have any friends who play such an instrument. I realize that reading books and videos on the internet about how to write for string i
  18. Hi everyone, I have 2 questions: 1. How should I approach writing unmeasured music? Jhere should I insert bar lines? How should I approach choices for note values? 2. When writing ensemble music involving transposing instruments, should I include the transposition in the part name in notation software (e.g clarinet is Bb is the name of a part in Finale)? Thanks.

  21. Can you please recommend some songs you identify as fantasy songs personally so I can study the chords and see why, or if you know a common chord progression in fantasy music can you post/comment it? thanks! P.S. - For anyone wondering where the rest of the content here went, I've been doing a lot of studying and putting this stuff together on my own.
