I make it a rule to not upgrade operating systems, but it seems that when I needed to do so, I quickly learned why I generally avoid it.
Here are the results of my first week with Dorico (crossgrade from Finale).
Hi All, Try out the app "Treble Cat" on your device's App Store! It is a fun way to learn the notes on the treble clef. http://melodycats.com/treble-cat/ I was introduced to this sight reading app by a family member, and I think those of us who teach kids (or want to learn as adults) may …
Reilly Spitzfaden's work Resonances is an interesting exploration of instrumental tone and gesture, a cat-and-mouse game of imitation.
Concept album/EP, mixed field recordings, modified and new electronic/virtual instruments, in-depth mixing, production-heavy, ambient but purposeful, directioned but open, free, wild, nature-inspired.
It's happening!!! #Dorico #download #newsoftware #notation #composerdreams #moretocome #staytuned
I own the iLok2, a device that allows me to store my software keys in one device. There is a new version, the iLok3, which claims to hold 3 times more licenses in half the size, at twice the speed.
This is how you can fit your audio bin, 6 guitars, a banjo, 2 mic stands, all of your pedals, and buckets and sticks for a small bucket band, in two corners of a room. It's important to organize thoughtfully, move carefully, and always listen to your kitty supervisor.

#TBT to the quietest track, "She", on my second album titled Exercise Music. (The full album can be found here.)
I didn't compose today (spent too long at work these past two days and had to rest). Goodnight all! Here's to composing many more days.

Mitch Weakley's piece "Keys, Strings, Clothespins" investigates a C pentatonic scale with a flattened sixth step (Ab) through the lens of a prepared piano, and its consequent timbres.
I'm not anti-kofiev; I'm PRO-kofiev. Hit me up with some of your favorite classical music puns.
Soulful, R&B, catchy, remix, lush, bass-heavy, groove-based, choppy, interrupting, fascinating, wide array of timbres, intoxicating.
