1. Didja accidentally blow through the whole, "We're using our real names" thing on registration? No problem, just send me (Mike) a Conversation message and I'll get you sorted, by which I mean hammered-into-obedient-line because I'm SO about having a lot of individuality-destroying, oppressive shit all over my forum.

Snippets and Ideas

  1. And now the same example with strings added in. All of this is only Note-Performer btw.

  2. Wonderful, thanks for the reply. I think I need to study modules more. Time to transcribe some Herrmann.

    How would you go about ending this piece? I'll have to transcribe it (or just read it more slowly) but from an initial listen it sounds like there are 2 modules with varying complexity. Would you add a third or simply vary the second/first?
  3. Again, initial listens, but do you use the string counter-line intentionally to connect the first module to the second or was that coincidental?
  4. I am not sure what you mean. Personally I was only thinking of a single "module" and continuously developing that.

    Here is the score, if that helps.

  5. Thank you! Will study this tomorrow.

    Listening to it with headphones now (instead of on a phone speaker) I can hear that it's a single module now (I couldn't really hear the lower register initially). So would this "module" approach be more similar to the first movemenet of i.e. Isle of the Dead, vs Herrmann?

    I was not thinking of either at all. If I had to say what it reminds me of would be the Philip Glass scores like Dracula. But really I am just trying to make something interesting along the Aesthetic lines you mentioned, and some of your material that stuck in my mind.

  7. Oh it's definitely interesting, I love how it builds, I'm just unfamiliar with the form and how to continue or develop it. Thank you for posting though, I need to study it and play around.
