  1. Hi, im a college student mayoring in music composition. This year Ive been attending a class about composition over poetry. The thing is this class was not very good. Most of my college mates agree that most of the time in class was wasted, and that the professor we had wasn`t very good and had no idea how to keep us engage (unlike most of our college professors). Anyways, this professor insist in the importance of keeping the stressed syllable in a strong time (first or third beat) everytime. I consider this is a very generic way of working over a text. Sometimes in music you can place a "stressed" note or chord in a weak beat, and then release the tension of that note or chord on a "strong" beat, than in this case will sound softer in comparision. 90% of Mozart`s cadences work this way. If this can be done with "instrumental" music, why can`t it be done with a piece that includes text? I have to comply to my professor demands in this regard and place every stressed syllables in strong beats in the works im presenting to him, but I doubt this rule has to be abided every single time. Id like to know the opinions of other composers who composed vocal pieces. Is my professor %100 right or is there room for this rule to be broken?
  2. I came across this poem "I Cannot Forget" about the experience of Jewish people in WWII, and thought it was intriguing so I set it to music. Just a short project.
  3. Many who know me personally would say I have several personalities and in this topic I will show a different side of me that I haven't really shown the boards. Warning: Explicit language. Hip-hop was my first love and still is to this day. Sometimes I'll create my own beats and other times I won't. I will seperate a few songs I've done by the year and hopefully you guys would enjoy them. Fun fact: My parents nearly disowned me for making hip-hop music. I was raised in a middle class family and didn't necessarily live the type of lifestyle I rap about. My family literally hates rap music so I done mostly all of these in secret lol. Also a lot of these are in a hyperthetical sense; they're just words I thought sounded cool at the time. (Note: There are time skips in between but here is the link to one of my mixtapes I've done between 2012 and 2014. Some classified it as my best work.) http://mixconnect.com/listen/Rasheem+the+Guru+-+Poetic+Backstory-mid11891 Year 2009: I Refuse Solid Story of a Dope Fiend Year 2012: Yung & Blaq Exchange Year 2014: Waisting Time (My own beat) Falling Down (My own beat) Tried to Tell Me (My own beat) Year 2016: Pushin' On Remember Just Wanna Be Heard
  4. Opus 9, Madrigal no 1, written for SSATB(lyrics : Bright Star by John Keats). Full album cover and more music available here : https://www.reverbnation.com/mademoisellelilaclucrezia Opus 9.mp3
  5. Are there any contemporary/recent poets whose work you [would] like to set to music? Or newer branches of poetry that you like? I don't know much about what's out there in this regard but am curious of any discoveries people have made that may be particularly useful for musical purposes.
