probably that (generally) tracks like that are shorter than most techno tracks, so if u want to be able to mix with comfortable margins you're only going to be playing each for a minute or two
whereas if u have techno tracks that are like 8 minutes long you're going to be playing each for a lil longer

Anon's String Quartet Edition

"I shall create a new world for myself." - Fredric Chopin

previous thread: >>66574081

An experiment in a pen-and-paper composing general, made for all the theory autists

This differs from /prod/ in that it is more focused on the actual writing of music, not the production, and music theory. That is not to say /prod/'s electronic music is unwelcome, by all means, post here! But post with the intent on discussing composition. And remember, this is NOT /classical/. Any music, such as jazz, is acceptable

Post clyps and accompanying notation so we can accurately critique your composing from a theory perspective

You mean like method books, or just sheet music?
I'll look in the OP. I think my problem is not understanding practical application of some techniques. Or perhaps it's just how limited I am that I am composing stuff that I cannot play and it's getting harder and harder for me to hear things and click them into the computer (because at this point it is easier for me to do that than to actually play anything). I'm just looking to expand because my improv is pretty weak.

Maybe both? I tried the hanon exercises for a while but felt like I couldn't apply it to comp.
>Maybe both? I tried the hanon exercises for a while but felt like I couldn't apply it to comp.
True and not really true. You don't have to have good technique to write fast passages, or complex passages, and you certainly want to be able to write fast and complex passage for non-piano instruments which is a different task. HOWEVER having great technique will make difficult passages more intrinsic to your compositional process. Hanon is great in addition to other things.
I see what you're saying and I'll take another look into it.

I'm also looking for stuff that involves applications and exercises in tonal harmony. I write stuff that modulates a lot and want to be able to write well in a tonal context with some substitutions if anything. but I'm going to take a deeper look into the OP now
I don't know if it's such a good idea when weekly challenges aren't even a stable thing yet, but we should do something like exercises, things not challenging but good simple practice. Like
>Write 9 motive-variations of this simple motif (or a motif in your current or latest composition): 3 rhythmic variations, 3 intervallic variations and 3 harmonic variations.
It really seems like a good warmup.

Does this album have any deeper and substantial meaning than "lol Bush is a baddie xDDD"?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Unfortunately, no. It's full of dumb lyrics over dumb music made by three dumb guys.
He bombed pakis. How could they hate Bush?
you might as well be posting CCR and complaining about muh nam.

American Idiot is a great pop album and hugely important for being one of the only mainstream albums in it's era that was critical of bush and the iraq war, something that at the time was not so mainstream as it is today, and something that you guys dumbly think doesn't matter despite the war now being recognized as a huge failure.

It's objectively one of the greatest political album ever made. It effectively got young people to care about these issues.
Honestly, American Idiot was a fairly good album. It was certainly better than that trilogy of shit, Uno Dos Tres.
It's worse when you realize it was written by men in their 30s.

We're updating the /mu/core chart. Suggest albums that should be added.

There's no reason to keep it in metal, especially if hip hop and bleep have representation in mu core and metal doesn't
Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly have all aged way, way better than Elvis. If he gets a place they should too.
Merzbow - Pulse Demon should be under sub-/mu/core. It's easily the most discussed noise album on this board.

poor mans justin trosper
These guys did more with a G major/E minor blues pentatonic scale than most "guitar virtuosos" do with every scale/mode given to them. It's not just variety in pitch (which was NEVER the thing in blues to begin with), but rhythm, timber, types of chords, ect.
Ernie Isley deserves a mention
