Hello everybody, A few days ago, I got the idea about an app to help composers to get feedback about instrumentation (and orchestration) from musicians. The idea can be found here: We decided to try it out first on this forum by a thread. (!) To have this idea work, we need the whole community to help and play the music! A composer can post his music here, but when the music isn't performed, there is nothing useful about this topic. HOW IT WORKS What to do as a composer? If you are not sure about a short passage or a few passages in one of your compositions, you can post your score (PDF) in this topic, BUT... Make sure that you clearly tell us, which instrument part you have doubts about and where, i.e. from which bar to which bar. This topic is not meant to get free performances and audios for your music; only for feedback. What to do as a musician? First, please press the ''follow'' button at the top right of this page. When you see a post of a composer, who would like to have feedback on a piano passage and you play piano, check the score. When you check the score and you think you can play it a little bit, please practise it.* Finally record yourself playing the passage (in this case piano) and post the mp3 file here with some feedback. *You don't need to be a professional musician to be able to play passages. When the tempo is too fast for you, you can still practise it in a slower tempo and imagine a professional musician playing the music. Result The composer now has more knowledge of what is possible and what is not on the instrument. Note that there needs to be a balance between you posting scores and you posting recordings of yourself playing. If you only post scores and don't play other's music, your score will get less attention. Hopefully this works! Maarten Bauer
