  1. Hello everybody, Would it not be fantastic if Young Composers had its own special Magazine composed by the creative members of the forum? Since a few weeks I have been thinking about this idea. I already made a few magazines with the free program called Jilster (https://www.jilster.com/). The advantage of this program is that I (as a chief editor) can give specific pages to other people so that many people can work on one single magazine. The program is very ergonomic: I learned the things I needed to know in one hour of experimenting. Because the idea is still quite vage, I deci
  2. #1 YOUNG COMPOSERS MAGAZINE Hello fellow composers! Music is enrichment of life. We cannot imagine a life without music. Our passion is music and that is why we decided to start an interesting project: creating a magazine about music related themes. Our goal is to share our love for music. We proudly present the first edition of the Young Composers magazine. You will find various themes in this magazine. From the theoretical discussion of contemporary musical forms to a recipe of a favourite dish by a well-known composer. The magazine is linked with the intern
  3. Hello everyone! I work for the music publisher Universal Edition. The company is pleased to announce that an excting new project that may be of interest to young composers is (hopefully, Covid -19 allowing) being launched by the end of the year. I am currently collecting the contact details of anyone who is interested in finding out more about this exciting project. Further information will be sent out as the project progresses. If you would like to be included, please send your name, address and email address to me at Londonsales@universaledition.co.uk Thanks for your atte
  4. Hello everybody! At the moment the Young Composers website does not have a logo, nor a favicon. So, Chopin and I came on the idea to hold a logo AND a favicon design for the website. This competition is meant to everybody who is a YC member and you do not have to be a professional designer to join. Be as creative as you want! All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote which one they like the most. Finally, Chopin can adjust minor things if needed. To avoid any ambiguities: Logo:
  5. There you go, that's the two bars idea I came up with. It isn't harmonized or anything on purpose, the idea is to have every individual composer make a one minute piece out of this idea the way he sees it. We can mix them all together or make a piece with a few parts based on this idea. Good luck, I'm off to compose my own version of it.
  6. Hi Young Composers, In my latest article, I discussed about why most modern game soundtracks are boring and lifeless and how to remedy it. And this has actually very little to do with composer's technical skill as most would think. Take a read and see if it make sense, or if you have encountered circumstances as discussed in the article. Also, it'll be helpful if composers(you guys!) in this forum can have a discussion if you agree with me or not. :) https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-most-modern-game-soundtracks-lifeless-marvel-symphonic-yoa/ Being an experienced composer/au
  7. Hello everybody, Since I am Dutch, I am very interested in Dutch art, like architecture, painting, design and... music. In the Dutch Golden Age (17th century) Holland ruled the seas and the painting art, theater and literature flourished. Holland was the place to be. Vermeer, Rembrandt etc. Also after this period, Dutch artists were very succesful both nationally and internationally. Think about Van Gogh, Mondriaan etc. However, I suddenly noticed that Dutch composers are not very well-known (or succesful). Germany has Bach, Mendelssohn etc, Russia has Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky etc.,
  8. Hi fellow composers! My name is Kian, a Shanghai, China based composer and visual media audio specialist. I'm a graduate of the world prestigious Berklee College of Music and have had more than 10 years of industry experience working on a range of projects including AAA+ games such as Eve Online, Dishonored, Spec Ops: The Line, Dust 514 and block buster Chinese films notably Wolf Warrior.

  9. [This topic is about how to join the Young Composers Magazine staff.] Hello everybody, Firstly, great that you want to help! Since there is much enthousiasm for the magazine (also to help), I have decided to continue the project. There are a few steps that you need to follow: Send me a personal message including that you would like to contribute articles to the magazine. In order to give you the ability to work on the magazine you have to create an account on https://www.jilster.com/. Afterwards, please send me your mail address via the same persona
  10. Greetings YC Family! It's been a long time since I made a post and visited the forum. For those of you who may recognize me, you know that I was once an administrator on this site. My years on here have aided me in my ventures within the past decade. One of these ventures was the setup and creation of an online radio station devoted solely to promoting the works of new and emerging composers. This post, thus, serves two purposes: 1. To promote Et Lux Radio and encourage each and everyone of you to listen to the music of your peers as it is broadcast 24/7. and... 2. Make a
  11. Here is a link of 22 great quotations from composers: http://www.classicfm.com/discover/music/inspiring-composer-quotes/ Let's discuss some of these at least. I think many hold great truths about composition. But some are debatable and we might not agree with what is said. In particular: 1. What do you think about the Benjamin Britten quote (No. 18 in the series of slides)? I don't agree with it. Inspiration often keeps me up at night and I don't think that that is mere loss of sleep. Who said that had I slept and put away my inspired state of mind, I would have been able to con
  12. Hi all, Thought I'd share a chat server we've got goin on using Discord (great app!). The server was set up initially for members of Vi-control.net, but I'm opening it up to anybody who finds it relevant. You can only join by invitation, and here is yours: https://discord.gg/0vF7cfyHaTBsMeEM At the moment we have a handful of TV, film, and video game composers, as well as students and hobbyists. Get feedback, opinions, talk about software, chat about anything! Cheers
  13. Hi. I've come across a deal like this: coupon for a 15% discount on any sheet music at MusicaNeo All you need to do is enter the code SAVEME15 at the checkout. Honestly, I have never used coupons before (to my shame) and I'm wondering if there are a lot of musicians who do it regularly? Taking into account that performers always need the sheets, is it a good way to save some pennies?
  14. Now you can vote for each of 20 composers named at least once in the Overrated-Underrated thread, listed in no particular order. This way we can see how many of our fellow YC members have similar opinions on said composers. Please note that I would have liked to list every single composer named in that thread, but that would have been too many questions. The options are very simple: tell us if said composer is, in your view, overrated, underrated, neither, or if you've never heard of him at all. Enjoy the ride!
  15. Hi Guys. We have started a publishing company in germany, and are currently looking for composers in concert band music, symphonic wind music, to sign up with our publishing company. In europe is a huge market for wind orchestra music and ensemble work for winds, as we have thousands of amateur and professional orchestras always on the look for new music. Please send us a work, in midi or sibelius format, and we will have a listen. If your work is accepted, a publishing deal will be discussed and all works will be recorded by our inhouse orchestra. please email me at idicusmus
  16. Music Candy is a production music library based in the UK. We are again looking for new composers for the catalogue. We're especially looking for quirky music which could be Jazz, Funk, Pop....anything but with a unique, quirky edge. We've found that our albums that have an eccentric feel to it have a long shelf life and are very popular with clients. Please visit www.musiccandy.com - go to the contact page and send Tim links to your best work. Thanks, Music Candy
  17. Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble 2014 Emerging Composers Competition http://cerddorion.org/2014-emerging-composers-competition/ The Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble is pleased to announce its second annual Emerging Composers Competition, designed to foster the creation and performance of new works for mixed chorus.

  18. Hi guys! I was not quite sure where to post that but I decided that it's something that would belong to composers' headquarters :) (let me know if I should move this topic somewhere else) SO, there is that curious music project - "Maestro-in-the-Making" http://www.musicaneo.com/music-for-children.html The idea is to hold an international competition among modern composers and encourage them to create fun and engaging music pieces for children that would be published in a music book and sent for free to music schools all over the world. They are raising funds right now at IndieGoG
  19. There is something that has been bugging me for the past few months. Ever since I started attending college a year-and-a-half ago I have constantly had professors skip over pieces such as Beethoven's Fifth, Beethoven's Ninth, Pachelbel's Canon in D, etc. etc. etc. Their reasoning for this is always "We have all heard, played, and analyzed these before in high school, no point going over it again." But here's the problem, we didn't; or at least I didn't. In high school I was always told that we didn't play pieces such as that because that is what we would do in college, so we always played obsc
  20. 2012-13 New-Music Consortium International Call for Scores Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/USFNewMusicConsortium. Application Deadline: 2013-01-15 The New-Music Consortium, University of South Florida School of Music’s student-run contemporary music organization, is pleased to announce its first ever New-Music Consortium International Call for Scores.

  21. How would you like one of your compositions to be performed by a major orchestra? Well here is how you can, and you can even help out children in need while doing so. http://composersforkids.wordpress.com/ Check out the website, and spread the news to all composers you know.
  22. How would you like to be a part of a collaboration designed to help build a school in Africa. Here is how you can: http://composersforkids.wordpress.com/ Spread the news. Cheers.
  23. I was having a conversation with our very own Mr. Lidell (aka Morivou) about a month ago when we started talking about the Australian composer Carl Vine. Morivou tells me that his music is known to only a handful of people where he comes from, but here is Australia I don't know any classical musician who has never heard of Carl Vine! I had been wondering after that conversation how many people outside Australia know any of our professional composers at all, so I decided to make this thread to see how many of you are familiar with these people and their music. These are probably the top six mos
  24. My mysterious instrumental music is an unusual mixture of styles and moods. It is constructed by the sounds of flute, violin, piano, synthesizer and guitar. Examples of my works you can listen on the site http://mysterious-music.com My e-mail: denis@mysterious-music.com
  25. Even though this is a public forum, this website is still very educational in its concept. I understand we all have opinions about who we like and don't like. Since one day we'll all be successful, with success comes a price: Our words are forever watched. Therefore, for the sake of eloquence, state one composer you like and WHY you like him/her and expand on that. In addition, state one composer you don't like and WHY you like him/her. Saying that "Composer A sucks" is not enough. Say WHY you don't like him. example: I don't like Bach because his use of harmony for me is not artistica
