Here is the score.

The reason it is scored like this was for a competition.

what is interesting about this music, is that while i composed it, I gave great liberty to the performers to interpret.

So it was semi-improvised, then transcribed.

this music also originated in my mind as an audio mural. so while it sounds finished now, i envisioned releasing it to the world for others to add to it.
hello

well...how would you like to proceed? the score you posted looks like a basic sketch. i hope that isn't insulting. but the kind of orchestration i was envisioning was far more detailed to try and emulate the sonic space created in the studio version.

do you want me to get detailed?

My question to you (and to everyone who works in such 'electronic' pieces): This piece/recording is aimed for a live performance? If so the electronic sounding parts are going to be performed by live electronics, or a CD (ipod/mp3/whatever) playback? Because the sounds do originate from the inside of the piano, but the have been tempered electronically, right?

Since you've made a score and re-did it (I only took a look at the later example, named revision5.PDF), I would guess that you want it performed live. If so, then you should notate something about the electronic parts. Some reference for the performers to know what's going on.

The score is still very rough, I'm afraid. I'm not sure what you're using, but firstly it suffers from some resolution issues (or the conversion to PDF turned it this way?). The notation is a tad big for my taste, although I can see the appeal... But it still looks rather sloppy... I hope I'm not being harsh here. Just trying to make some discussion.

Default you're right

Nikolas,

Thank you. You are right; the score is very restricted. The competition I entered allowed only a number of performers. When me and my friend Aaron sat down to do an instrument list we came up with at least 20 instruments to be involved [mostly percussion].

My aim was to have it performed with this instrument set, however, it would be possible to do it with a laptop. Using a laptop I think would be more practical, because there is room for spontaneous moments. Instead of performing a set recording, the laptop could also put electronic instruments that sound at the will of the performer.

You are also right about the score. This was before I new how to ctrl m measures in finale.

Thank you again for your thoughts.

Very solid comments.

I really like your website, and the first piano piece especially is very lovely Congratulations.

Welcome to BC, Nikolas! (also the name of my 2nd of 2 boys)

Favi85, as I said, I'm real busy for the next few days..well, week. It will be at least that long before I reply to the score.

Scott

I agree with Scott Good. Very nice piano piece.

Scott, there is no hurry. But I am anxious to hear your words.
