Waltz in D# minor
four-flats

Hey everyone, so this is a rough version of a score I’ve been working on. It’s a waltz for piano and violin (in ternary form).

I’m just wondering if you could give me some feedback on it (let me know how I can better it, because it’s in a rough draft kind of stage). The score is below. Sorry for the shit midi,

Whew, not quite too late. Happy Birthday, Schubert! Today Beet plays one of your piano two-hand compositions with you.

(Edit: Like a fool in a hurry, last night I posted this without sourcing the music. Oops, sorry! Musical score is a transcription of Schubert’s Ave Maria, transcribed by David Neyrolles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHSz7URU3p0  I picked this version because it was simple enough to draw fairly quickly. Any mistakes are very likely my own, as I am no master of reading sheet music.)

The recording of my piece Obsidian, for two bari saxes, percussion (primarily marimba), and piano is online! Taylor Scott Brooks and Sean Campbell played the bari saxes, Christina Manceor played percussion, and I played piano.

The first movement is called Chaos Legion, because obscure references to fanfiction are obviously the most rational method of titling movements. (Google tells me it’s also the title of a game, but that’s not the intended reference)

The second movement is called Double Canon, because it is one (saxes at the minor sixth at three measures, marimba and piano at the unison at one measure).

And the third movement is called Purification Swing, which is a reference to a game. Also, the parts that sound like improvised solos about two-thirds of the way through this movement are indeed improvised, so credit goes to Taylor, Christina, and Sean (the one who isn’t me) for those notes.

You Are My Sunshine (Lullaby Ver.)

Inspired by @Ferisae ‘s gorgeously angsty ml fic, ‘You Don’t Know Me’. I was hanging in her livestream today and someone mentioned this song and how it fits the fic really well, and I had some spare time on my hands so I decided to arrange this neat little cover :)

Tabula Rasa - I. Ludus - Con Moto
Gidon Kremer, Kremerata Baltica
Tabula Rasa - I. Ludus - Con Moto

Arvo Pärt (1935).

The Tabula Rasa is a musical composition written in 1977, the piece contains two movements, “Ludus” and “Silentium”, it is a double concerto for two solo violins, prepared piano, and chamber orchestra.

In 1968, Arvo Pärt fell publicly silent and entered a period of “artistic reorientation.” During this period, he developed his tintinnabuli style of composition, which pairs two voices, one playing the notes of a scale (Melodic Voice), and the other playing notes of a triad (Tintinnabuli Voice). Pärt emerged from this period of innovation in 1976, and composed many of his most well known works thereafter. 

Tabula Rasa is one of these earliest tintinnabuli pieces, and holds the distinction of being one of the first compositions of Pärt’s to reach Western listeners outside of Estonia and the Soviet States.

DON HUNSTEIN
Miles Davis, 1959
Columbia Records staff photographer Don Hunstein grabbed this remarkable candid moment of Miles Davis awash in clear delight during the “Kind of Blue” sessions. Miles at his most disarming, this is what it looks like to hear “Kind of Blue” for the very first time. - Columbia Records D.H.

During the “Kind of Blue” sessions, Miles Davis provided his sextet with a schematic framework for the modal improvisations that would comprise the album. Though primarily a trumpet player, Davis used the piano as a compositional tool. This rare shot of Miles at the keys provides a candid insight into his working methods as well as a glimpse into the studio ambience that created one of the most atmospheric and influential albums of all-time.

Assassin's Creed Detroit Theme (fangame)

okay. guys. awhile back, (because i am way too deep into this fangame rabbit hole to ever go return), I made a really rough composition for how I’d imagine the (FANMADE) Assassin’s Creed Detroit soundtrack to sound. I wanted it to feel like other themes, while also being able to have the other themes play on top of it as part of the melody. I wanted to invoke a sense of wanderlust, and also have the theme sound like falling snow. It turned out……okay.

WELL. THEN. SCARLETRAVEN APPEARED. This buddy of mine and incredibly talented composer / audio mixer took my poorly recorded theme and TURNED IT INTO THIS BEAUTIFUL BIT OF AUDIO HEAVEN. So I hope you enjoy.

And go give Scarlet some love. Because honestly. Im still cryin a lil bit.

ALSO PLEASE DONT SUE ME UBISOFT I DO THIS OUT OF LOVE YOUR IP HAS BEEN SUCH A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE weh
