DHWP42 – Jazz Waltz [Re-Upload]

[Edit: For some reason the link on Soundcloud didn’t work, so here’s a reupload so you can actually hear the song. Thanks for listening!]

Hello there you pickled pickles. Today I have for you the song that you came up with last week. If you don’t remember, here’s a link. If you don’t feel like clicking a link today, I just put out a bunch of polls and asked for elements for a song. I got that the song should be jazzy, in 3/4, about 2 minutes long, and with Piano, Trumpet, and Alto Saxophone. The Alto Sax sound is really bad on Musescore, but I didn’t have the time nor resources to get a friend to play it for me.

If you have any suggestions or corrections, give some feedback in the comments!


You Make a Song!

Hello there you chicken pickins. Today I’ve got a fun activity for us, along with some updates. Let’s get the updates out of the way so we can get the fun stuff! I’m going to be changing the schedule of Free Lunch, from Tuesdays and Fridays to Wednesdays and Saturdays. This helps my schedule a lot so that I have everything more spread out in my week. Tuesdays and Fridays are also not very good news days for me, as I usually have nothing to say that hasn’t been said on the Tuesday post since I have so little going on between those two days.

For today’s magic trick, I will be making a song appear! I’m going to give you a series of polls that will determine the song’s structure and such. Once I get the final results this Thursday, I’ll begin creating the song. I’m going to give myself a week to complete this so it will be out the following Thursday.

Let’s begin!

If you have any other suggestions for the song, feel free to leave them in the comments! Otherwise, thanks for reading all the way down to the very bottom of this post, I’ll see you next time!



New Composition, Tech!

Hello there you Ctrl-3’s. I’ve got a song for you, and while I don’t think it makes sense together or sounds particularly good, I’d like to know what you think. I made it all in about 3 hours, with some light editing a little bit later fixing some mistakes. My favorite part is the piano solo because I think it sounds cool in its’ dissonance. The final section before the ending is kind of out-of-place, but I like it nonetheless. So tell me what your impression of this is, what could I improve, and what are some things that stick out to you.
