Tough decision time. I'll be one of many composers in a new music performance/composition workshop. There was a miscommunication about the dates, and I bought my international plane tickets leaving one day too early. I now have to choose: either change my tickets -- which would cost about $450 U.S. -- or miss the workshop's big final concert. Things we know: - The final concert will be recorded well, and I'll be sent a copy; - There's no way to be sure until during the workshop whether the final concert will include a piece of mine, but there's a good chance it will; and - I will definitely have a couple of pieces on other concerts/readings earlier in the workshop. I know the final concert and whatever socializing we'd do afterwards is really important for building connections with the performers and with the other composers. I have enough money saved up in my workshop/travel budget that I could change the tickets. But it's a lot of money. Enough for a whole other workshop locally or any number of other things for my career. Any input to help me think about this would be appreciated!
An opportunity to get involved
Niadorj posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersHey all, So I'm on my last year or so of undergrad school, and that means that I'll be going through the the senior courses (no more 4 hour classes!), revamping resumes, my portfolio and expanding my internet presence. I'll also be proposing my (50's suspense music here) SENIOR PROJECT! In all seriousness though, i'm really excited! I've been looking forward to getting out there and starting to work with people in the real world. But enough of my ranting, time to present you guys with my proposal for my senior project! - A working VSI with the intent on it being useable in real world mock - ups. But before I really get my hands dirty: I wanted to hear from you guys and get the YC community involved with this project. I think this would be a really cool project to hear from other people and really to network with all of you guys; many of us will be working in the same industry more or less (some of us are already making their name out there) and it would be great to get feedback from peers in the composition community. I don't expect this to be the next cinesamples, but I do intend on getting to know those guys and other companies that create this software and be able to create my own custom instrument libraries in the future. Basically I wanna know: What UI options do you think are "essential" to make a user - friendly patch? What other software instrument would you like to see come out? What are some problems that you have sometimes with VSI's? Anything else that comes to mind :) The short version of my proposal is that I'm going to make a sort of "Scary String" library using some common effects used in commercial orchestral music and some extended string articulations. If you're interested in reading more, I've opened up my Prezi presentation online, the link is below. http://prezi.com/vjt...oject-proposal/ I look forward to hearing from everyone! Happy composing! ~J
