"My biggest takeaway has been the importance of personalizing art in ones life, and engaging in a tireless pursuit to that end. The ways we do that may be varied in our different art forms, and a commonality in vocabulary and understanding will, I…"

Morton Feldman is awesome.

Hi Aaron. I really enjoyed the Film Project as a compositional exercise, and I thank you for your helpful feedback. I have been looking for someone to give me feedback on my Symphony No. 1 (currently on my profile there is a link), which is a piece I am proud of and would love to have performed. It's been on my profile for a while now, and I think that you would be a great person to give me some comments about it.

Thank you! Please let me know what you think!

Aaron!  Would you be willing to put up a quick explanation of what the Circle of Fifths is and what you think is the fastest way to memorize and completely understand.  Maybe from a compositional point of view.  Our students like history! We are studying this in my vocal class and the Musical Theater kids can use the help!  THANKS!

All right, I posted it again. Thanks for letting me know.

I definitely plan on submitting a score!! I'm on Spring Break, so a lot more of my time can be alloted towards this project.

Halfway through my rough score for it already. The trick for me is going to be syncing it to the video, seeing as I don't have a program that does that.

Hi Aaron, thanks for getting in touch and for the kind words. Absolutely! I've already started working on a piece and I hope to post it soon.

I have an important question regarding the pdf/score requirement. Let me know if you'd like me to post this in that page's comment section too:

Unfortunately, I don't really work with notation much. I compose mostly by ear and by utilizing the music technology to achieve a decent sound by manipulation of MIDI individual note velocities (e.g., if you're familiar with Apple's Logic, I use mostly just Piano Roll and Hyper Editor, and not the Score window). For when you select a piece to be played by the professional musicians, will they listen to the audio/MIDI files at all, or will they only just read directly from the composer's pdf score? (or, by chance, do you have an Orchestrator on board to help as well?)

Thanks, Aaron.

Hello! I'm very interested! I'm actually in the middle of writing my score right now! It'll be my first original score, so hopefully it will be good!
