Description
So this is what a composition sounds like when I handwrite it.

Only short, took a good few hours to write though, got through a few pages for just a minute long piece.

Enjoy :)

i have only
ever tried to work from a score once before but i have to say it was a revelation to me

i did it with kari kraakevik (she is a genuine musical genius)
http://www.macjams.com/song/53449
i could never have even scratched the surface of something like this with out her...but everything you hear on this tune was written on a score sheet before it was ever 'heard'

i encourage you to pursue this approach as much as you can...its a great skill to cultivate

Solid Piece of work....
Yes much to short, just started making my head move
and it was over....
Much to complicated for me, although it has a very warm feel to it, not like most classical that bite my top end sensibilities that just turns me off...

Very well done...
Check out my latest song called Melded Universe....
XMaramena said 1509 days ago (August 31st, 2013)
thank you
I'm quite impressed - my musical training is classical, and the rate of harmonic shifts in this particular piece almost blows my mind, so that fact that you didn't get blown to bits is something of a reassurance that I'm not going to be detained for terrorism by music!

And I really like your stuff by the way :D

Fine work, Ash. Really enjoyable. I struggle to handwrite my name these days, I use a pen so infrequently. Thanks, Peter.

Convincing
If someone told me this was Vivaldi, I'd believe them.

perhaps a little beethoven thrown in at the middle :P

handwrite
You mean, entirely without access to any instrument? I've tried that (needed to write something late at night, only had a piano, neighbours would object), but my result was not as good as yours. Very nice!

delectable baroquishness
perhaps this sounds more like Vivaldi than Mozart... definitely something to be extremely proud of accomplishing... even JS Bach appreciated, studied, and stole from Vivaldi. I really should take some music classes so I can get my score-writing abilities just headed in this direction... this is inspiringly great to listen to, both aesthetically and technically. bravo, sir.

Very impressive Nahum!
Baroque reinvented.

Handwritten with no recourse to even playing the parts as you wrote them?

The sounds are also excellent. I've heard good things about Vienna and this really shows how good it is.

Cheers

Thanks!
I don't really need to play it when I'm handwriting - I hear it all in my head anyway. The only times I play while handwriting are to check things like fingering and playability with chords etc.

Yes - the VSL strings are great, but I've just downloaded a demo of LASS which puts these to shame!
