Hi everybody. I had a tune rejected a while ago. I was a bit upset. I got over it
Looks like a nice little set up. I’ve never used any of the gear you talk about but some pretty looking lights going on right there! I was tempted to get the Maschine thing a couple of years back, love stuff like that.
As to my workflow and what helps me speed things up? Hmmm…strong coffee?
I uploaded 50 kids, to avoid a life on the skids, single word titles would have been wiser, than to live the life of a poor jungle miser. Poetry was never my strong point lol
I taught piano a few years ago. I once told a story to a good student I got on well with about how back in the old days when I were a wee lad my teacher used to have a wooden ruler and if I made a mistake they would crack my hands with it. All completely untrue and false lol! I left it a few lessons then one week when the student hadn’t practised…I went and got a wooden ruler and hovered at the side…I made them do scales…both hands…four octaves….I had a really serious look on my face…in fairness they did pretty well…but eventually made a mistake…I raised up the ruler and went to slam it down on their hands….......stopping just short…..they nearly jumped out of their skin…I fell about laughing my arse off. The student saw the funny side too. I decided maybe I wasn’t quite cut out to be a good teacher lol
Religious stuff aside (not my thing)...I quite like her she’s passionate about her craft. Although very vague and unclear at least she talked about tension and release…things any good composer need consider to create interest and movement in music… She’s a pussy cat compared to some of the teachers I had. Some of my defining moments have been from crushing criticism and some of my biggest moments of learning from encouragement and hand holding. I think there is a place for both.
That monster of an organ is a Wersi Helios apparently.
Ha! Lol…ScoreStudio…I think the problem with Taylor Swift’s ‘Motivational Corporate Inspiration’ was that it was too similar to the old B.A Robertson hit ‘Corporate Motivational Inspiration’
TheWhiteElephant…a lot of my tunes are a bit specialist so the least I can do is try and have a little bit of fun with the titles…Jason the Organaut is real! He is a pleasant chap who I served in a music shop a few years ago…here he is: http://youtu.be/tKshb9NYHYk
Hi all thanks for educating me on this subject. I didn’t know it had come up recently so apologies if I’ve created an echo. Some interesting points and ideas. Perhaps in the future all music will be titled like this. Imagine a Beatles album:
1. Inspire 2. Emotional 3. Uplifting 4. Success 5. Sad 6. Corporate 7. Motivational
It would certainly cut to the chase. None of that wishy washy ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band’ nonsense…it just would never show up on the search engine lol
