    "Digamma" Sheet Music

    At last, I figured how to assemble sheet music by Finale from MIDI file generated by SONAR (though still I am suffering "bang!" noise from Finale as I asked in General Discussion forum).

    Anyway, here is the result if you are interested in. Full score of "Digamma" which is my entry to 2004 GPO competition.

    Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    The mp3 of the tune

    Great piece, Jun, I enjoyed this!

    What a blend of styles -- and a very successful one, at that. As always, original and interesting work.

    Finale goes "bang!" at me at the end, too, Jun. I do not know why. I have always treated it nicely.

    You too! It is very strange. In my case, the file was transcribed from raw MIDI file so that it may contain some twist in it.

    I believe there was an extended post on this topic somewhere -- but of course I cannot find it. In any event, it's fairly common... and nobody seemed to know what it was.

    I usually just leave an extra few measures at the end -- and clip out the offending clatter later in an audio editor.

    A minor nuisance, in any event.

    A fascinating and successful piece Jun. I enjoyed it immensely.

    A very rich and detailed rendering. It is nice to view the score while listening.

    From an online-viewing point of view, one thing that might make it easier to read such a large orchestral score, would be to hide the unused staves.

    For instance you have 7 staves of percussion, and it is rare that you use them all at the same time.

    I have quite a large monitor (22 inches) but to see the whole score at once, reduces it to a size where I am more aware of general shapes rather than, exact details.

    I dont know how to do this in Finale though. In Sibelius it is very easy.

    Great piece.

    regards Joe

    David, that is a practical solution. Thank you for the idea.

    I think I could do it with Finale. I will consult with the manual. Thanks for advice.

    Jun:

    A very enjoyable listen. This piece really moves out and is a good representation of symphonic instruments playing in a jazz idiom.

    Man, that bass player is really pulling strings..........Ya gotta pay him extra when it's all over. LOL

    A fun little piece! Nice blend of different idioms, and some very demanding (though playable) parts for everybody.

    I don't know how important a good printed score is for you, but I do have some suggestions if you intend to have this performed.

    First I have to ask why the key signatures? I was especially curious why the section from measure 82-89 were marked with four flats, since it didn't seem to be in any particular key, and accidentals were fairly prevalent. Personally, I would have kept all key signatures out of the piece. It's also not necessary (or desirable) to use key signatures in the transposing instruments when the rest of the orchestra is without a key signature (as opposed to being in C major).

    It's also not clear which french horns are playing at what times, since the parts are all on one staff, and you switch at times back and forth between four and three note chords.

    Jack, thank you for your kind comment.

    Yes. It should be hard for orchestra contrabass players to play pizzicato throughout the tune.
