Thanks to Kassen for suggesting this new forum on composition, and for volunteering to be the moderator. Here are a few ideas from Kassen when he proposed this forum:

"How does composition interact with the techniques of electronic music? Here you can discuss scales, tunings and formal structure on one hand and step sequencers, looping delays, random number generators and "noodles" on the other. On the third artificial and computer controlled hand, we´ll be talking about how those seemingly opposed sides can be brought together in satisfying ways."

"Do you play realtime keyboard when cheerful yet use a looping delay when sad? Is pulse train synthesis suitable for pieces programmed in detail or is it better suited for pieces more algorithmic in nature? Is a love song composed completely in Csound a proof of devotion or of your detachment from real feelings?"

"It is hoped that by concentrating on having everybody talk about his own experience and personal theories in a personal manner we might inspire each other and we might pick up on larger trends and on yet unexplored areas of interest."

Thanks for the space and chance, Mosc.

I don´t think Electro Music is in a great need for moderators and I suppose that anybody inclined to discuss topics like this won´t be the type to have flame wars so I´m expecting my own role to be more like a discussion leader.

Kas.

Have you noticed that this forum is actually named "Compositon"? Laughing

It kinda balances the somewhat "serious" content in it...

OK?

Hmm..

so:

Actual Answers From Students On Music Exams

The principal singer of nineteenth century opera was called pre-Madonna.

Gregorian chant has no music, just singers singing the same lines.

Sherbet composed the Unfinished Symphony.

All female parts were sung by castrati. We don't know exactly what they sounded like because there are no known descendants.

Young scholars have expressed their rapture for the Bronze Lullaby, the Taco Bell Cannon, Beethoven's Erotica, Tchaikovsky Cracknutter Suite, and Gershwin's Rap City in Blue.

Music sung by two people at the same time is called a duel; if they sing without music it is called Acapulco.

A virtuoso is a musician with real high morals.

Contralto is a low sort of music that only ladies sing.

Probably the most marvelous fugue was the one between the Hatfields and the McCoys.

A harp is a nude piano.

Refrain means don't do it. A refrain in music is the part you'd better not try to sing.

I know what a sextet is but I'd rather not say.

My favorite composer was Opus. Agnus Dei was a woman composer famous for her church music.

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which he kept up in his attic.

Rock Monanoff was a famous post-romantic composer of piano concerti

After a bit of a complaint here I cleaned up this forum a bit - a lot of posts moved to online music, some to schmooze, and deleted some as well.
