      Jeez but at first I misread that as "final rectal exam" :o

      Sorry :blush:

      Good luck!  ...I'm posting this after it's already over, aren't I?

      Yes, I had it this afternoon and I made it! I got a 7/10 as a grade so I'm quite satisfied ^^

  3. Unrequited. This is amazing, just like he says it. Both in the informational as the emotional way.

      Nothin, just recognised you ^^

      Hope you are doing well mate

  5. A preview of a song I'm working on. It's a vocal rendition of the chorus in one of my previous songs. The jazz offense.

    While I'm not a singer, I do think this sounds pretty swell :)

    Also, hi I'm back again and I'll be roleplaying again soon!

      Not bad!  Love the harmony on that barbershop quartet, but...huh...the harmony sounds like it's the kind of harmony that's about to build up to something else that's about to come, like it's trying to be squeezed forward into a larger and more open harmony, like going through a bottleneck...if that's making any sense.

      For context, I was talking about the Soundcloud clip that I could see here, that was about 20-30 seconds long.

    2. Scribblegroove

      Scribblegroove

      you're perfectly right. The harmony directs to an A minor 7 chord, which is the start of the new couplet, but it stops right before then. I'm still working on the rest of the song :)

      Thanks for your feedback.

    1. HereComesTom

      HereComesTom

      Seems a little melancholy with the all the low pitches involved, and the chords and note-changes are...I dunno, a little off...just enough "off" to make them sound sad, not enough to make them sound bad though.

  6. New piece I've written, if anyone can come up with some snazzy lyrics or theme don't hesitate to tell me -

    - life at the conservatory is very busy, hope I can find time to RP soon :3

      Yes I did, and I've been going at it for about 6 weeks now. Its intense, I'm studying about 8 hours a day, but It's super fun!

       

      @ Tom

       

      Those are some very interesting ideas. I really like how you always comment on my music. I've never really told you how much I appreciate that, or even really replied to your comments. Very sincerely, thank you for your feedback, it is honestly very helpful. I might put that "Nights were made f...

      I'm really impressed! Though, in all honesty, I knew you could do it. You're extremely talented, even someone as musically inept as myself can hear that. I'm really happy for you!

    4. HereComesTom

      HereComesTom

      Well, you're welcome! I appreciate your music, too---I don't expose myself to jazz much, so this really helps broaden my horizons!

      Funky...I can't quite make out the lyrics, except that it's a love song...

      Yeah I've had my off times before but never really this long. I'm glad you remember me though. You were always one of the people I had on my mind when thinking back of mlpf ^^ hope you're doing well!

      Trust me; I've always held a high opinion of you and missed having you on here as a RP partner. :)

       

      But yes; doing well on my end! Hope things are going well for you. :)

  10. hey guys. I'm not dead, just making music: Listen to Opposites attract by Scribblegroove #np on #SoundCloud http://soundcloud.com/scribblegroove/opposites-attract

    1. HereComesTom

      HereComesTom

      At first, I wasn't sure what meter this song would be in---5/4? 3/4? In the end, it seemed like 4/4 time, and it was an excellent piece! I love how the deep melody fades in and out and trades places with the higher-pitched pulsing background from time to time; I can see why you named it Opposites Attract!

       

      Listening to this, I'm thinking---imagine Lindsey Sterling mixing in some violin to this! It seems like a very remixable piece; it's great as-is, but i...

  11. to justify my absence lately: I've been working on my composition which I preformed tonight as part of a competition. I won and am now in the finals with 12 of the best young composers in my country. This is the piece we played (it's an old version though, the newer will be up soon) https://m.soundcloud.com/scribblegroove/going-home-without-vocals/s-zbtbW I don't know how many of you care but I really felt like sharing this. I hope it will make some of you happy :)

      Not just yet. Finals are in Wageningen. Of the 12 that attend only 3 can go through to the concert on national television.

       

      @Golbez

      Actually it's about a group of vikings that had settled in Normandy but got kicked out by Catholics so now they have to return to their old home back North, even though they actually want to stay.

       

      But your interpretation is cool too, and it's actually what I enjoy most about making music. Inspiring others to f...

      I really hope you'll make it there. You'd better be sure I'd be watching and cheering for you! Good luck in the competition and show them who's boss.

      I think I've heard an earlier version of this song. The instrumentation in this version sounds perfect! It's very melancholy and yet also hopeful piece.

       

      It kind of sounds like the instruments are having a conversation with each other, largely agreeing with each other, too...

  13. To everyone who cares (and I hope some of you do) here's my composition played by a small ensemble of musicians. Everything arranged by me:

  16. Update to my latest song, I'm really excited about this one! https://soundcloud.com/scribblegroove/try-to-keep-up

    1. HereComesTom

      HereComesTom

      I could tell I'd love it within the first five seconds! And I did.

       

      I noticed some sort-of empty spaces, if you know what I mean, around the 1:18 mark or so---measures that had some echo to them in their first repetition around the 1:08 mark and then no echo two or four measures later, but that might've been both intentional and a good thing.

       

      The instrumentation of the piece overall seems to have changed, for the better (either the instrumentation or the rela...

    1. HereComesTom

      HereComesTom

      Nice!

       

      If I may offer some constructive criticism: maybe the melody should have a slightly different instrument at about the 2:08 mark? I can tell with the bass parts at that stage of the song that it's trying to be more formidable, and it is (especially around the 2:38 mark or so), but would a resonant church organ be the right way to go there? ...Or is that exactly what instrument is there?

    2. Scribblegroove

      Scribblegroove

      Thanks a lot for your feedback. I'll try to mess around a bit with your idea, see if it sounds right.

       

      Current instruments are woodwind and brass.

  18. Inspired by one of otty's random experiments, I made a song. It's not much, but I like the piano riff :Phttps://soundcloud.com/scribblegroove/gift-for-otty

      awesome work on the song

  20. I'm so very sorry to everyone waiting for me to post in Roleplays. I've always been rather unreliable when it comes to that, but lately I've been extremely busy. Right now I'm travelling to Italy. In about 12 days I'll be able to post again.

  21. A pop artist plays 3 chords to 10 000 people, whilst a jazz player plays 10 000 chords to 3 people ;( Such is life I guess

    1. Jellal Fernandes

      Jellal Fernandes

      It's all about the passage of time, Jazz killed Classical, Rock killed Jazz, Hip-Hop killed Rock, and whatever it is now (a big jumbled mess of everything) killed Hip-Hop. But all of these genres were considered Pop at one point, as Pop is just what's popular.

    2. Scribblegroove

      Scribblegroove

      It's sad that the amount of skill vs amount of popularity factor changed dramatically as well. Not to say that none of the popular artists deserve their fame, but sometimes I'd wish that guys like this got a little more attention:

       

  22. To anyone waiting for me on anything, having the final tests of this year next week. I don't have a lot of time for anything :c
