#1 YOUNG COMPOSERS MAGAZINE
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Young Composers Magazine#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 internet forum Young Composers. All editors are member of this forum and most of us like to compose, professionally or as a hobbyist. Some articles will be therefore linked with the Young Composers forum. Furthermore, the links that are shared in the articles can all be found in a topic in the Young Composers magazine department on the forum. Every cover of the Young Compsosers magazine will have another composer's portrait. This time it is the maestro Johann Sebastian Bach. My admiration for Bach is immense, because his music seems to be timeless. Everybody has at least one Bach composition, which he or she likes. Above: Aria of the Goldberg Variations by Bach (BWV 988). This masterpiece helps me to fall asleep. I have listened to it for more than hundred times now and it never bores me. For me, that is the power of Bach. We hope that we can transmit our passion for music to you and hope to see you on the forum. Enjoy the reading!

Hi! I'm new to this site, and I'm not here for myself. I joined this site for my friend who is an amazing pianist and insane at improvisation. He is very good, and what I upload here, with his permission, is pure improvisation. I think that if you give the music a nice amount of feedback, he will have more motivation to compose and improvise more, and I will upload more here. Please listen closely to these audio files from my friend and please give me/him some feedback on his playing. The feedback can be either good or bad. I just want him to be heard, and given feedback to. Piano improv. 2.mp3Piano improv. 3.mp3 Piano improv. 1.mp3 Thanks!!
[Open discussion] Young Composers Magazine
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Young Composers MagazineHello 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 decided to schelude the magazine. This link leads you to the magazine in which you can see the topics I would like to include. https://jil.st/YoungComposersMagazinePreview Before I begin to write for this magazine, I would like to know if you would appreciate it. Could it be an valuable addition to the forum?I would also like to know if some of you are interested to help me. If you want to write about a topic that is not mentioned in this megazine scheme, do not be disappointed. I can give you several pages on which you can write about what you want. Furthermore, if you are interested send me a private message. I am very enthousiast, but of course we all have to be! Please be honest. Maarten *I know that not everybody has all free time to spend on writing and laying out the articles (including me), so there will not be a deadline. It is something extra and it has no priority.
[COMPETITION] YOUNG COMPOSERS LOGO
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Young Composers MagazineHello 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: will be placed somewhere between the header. The header would be considered anything above the navigation tabs. So that little bit of area between the tabs and the top of the page. Favicon: the icon that is shown to the left of the address bar in any of the browsers. For instance: http://www.shopalot.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/example-favicon.jpg A square form is preferred, because Chopin can then easily resize both images if the are too big to fit the header and / or the favicon. The name Young Composers needs to be included. Deadline Offical deadline is the 1st of October. Eventual latecomers can be rejected. How to participate Answer the poll with yes. If you do not want to participate, do not answer the poll. Submit your designs After you have finished both designs, make sure that you send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to @chopin and me. This is to avoid any cheating regarding creativity. All posts including images with designs by logos publically posted will be deleted. Your submission needs to contain a brief motivation why you have made the designs as they are. Voting via the magazine All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote via a new topic in this forum which one they like the most. Reward Eternal fame. People visiting the forum will see the beautiful logo and icon designed by you. When there are any questions, just ask them here and Chopin or I will answer them. The best of luck! Kind regards, Chopin & Maarten Bauer

For those of you who don't know, the BBC YCC is a free entry competition for 12-18 year olds. The entries are judged by top composers and the winners are perfomed at the BBC Proms! Also, all highly commended and winning entries are recorded with a live orchestra, and there are no limitations as to what instruments to compose for. Here's a link, for the website, unfortunately, the BBC haven't updated since 2011, so all information is 'old', but stay tuned :) http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms/2010/youngcomposers/introduction11.shtml P.S, if anyone finds out anymore information about the competition, please let us know. Thanks. -Phil
