Here is my new GPO offering, a Brazillian jazz piece using the brasillian form,Chorinho.
It is for Flute and Piano.
Brasiilian Jazz has been my main profession for about 8 years,and it was fun trying to distill the samba feeling into a "Classical Piano " part.
Hope you enjoy.
your Flute may sound much better. Here is the link
Liked both of your pieces very much. They're alive.
Thanks for the link to the fascinating controllers tutorial,in contrast to my Sulis piece which was written in Cubase and transferred to Sibelius.The chorinho is a Sib produced MP3.
I do not have a keyboard with any midi controllers,so everything In Sulis was laboriously entered 1 value at a time.
I have since promised myself never to work that way again.So I have ordered a midi keyboard with 8 controllers,and when it arrives I will apply some of the excellent advice found in that tutorial.
At times I do feel a little frustrated at this whole business of "A score can look good, OR sound good".When I finish writing a piece,I usually want to hurtle into the next one,but there are so many tiny details to take care of,before you can truly call a piece finished.
Still,on the whole the advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages.
Extracting parts,for example........
For those that like such things here is a link to the score for my Chorinho. Chorinho pra M.M
The piece has been uploaded(Again ) utilising the nifty Sibelius plugin that writes in the sustain controllers.
I personally cant wait for the day when you insert the midi lead into your neck,and just think the music into the computer. There are times when I seem to spend 3 or 4 days editing controller information,and I feel more like an accountant than a musician
Another enjoyable piece! I found it exciting yet relaxing (which I guess is kinda strange), and very catchy. Thanks again for the score, I do like to follow along, and when I have time, study the composition further. Nicely done! I love your work.
