Speaking of keeping on with it, here is a new sheet.  I found this one a bit trickier than the last few (it's also a little longer) but it's a really great piece so I'm glad I did it.

In a Silver Garden with You: [Musx] [Pdf] [Midi] [Mus]

There are some bits that sound odd on finale but when I play them on the piano they sound fine, so (shrug).  Also there are some funny chords so some of the inner notes might not be entirely 100%.

I also realised that most people include youtube links with their new sheets, so here is one of those:

There were only minor things that I spotted here since this is pretty great arrangement.

Sometimes the 8vas aren't quite in the right place, I don't know if this is because you wanted to keep it more together but I thought I'd mention it anyway: 
-m.55 the E# and C# are not 8va.
-m.67-68 are not 8va.
-m.73-75 have the top layer in the RH being 8va.  I guess it's your decision whether to put it up or not since you can't play both layers at the correct pitch (unless you have three hands) but in my opinion the sudden 8va is quite striking in the piece and it'd be nice to get that into the sheet.

And also in m.39 the C#s in the RH shouldn't be tied over.

This is a really cool piece that I'd never heard before, so thanks for that!

Once again, thanks for going to the effort of critiquing these sheets.  I hadn't ever used the resize tool before, but I can see now that's it's pretty useful.  I've pretty much made all the changes you suggested.  The only thing I've kept are the 'little triangle buddies'.  I've never heard of spicatos before either but, as Zeila said above, these are staccatissimos and I feel they covey what I want pretty well. 

I've updated the files.  Thanks again!

Wow, WALL-E came out just over ten years ago.  That doesn't make me feel old at all.  I haven't seen the film in a long time, but from what remember it was good.  (Although perhaps the 2001 references were a little over the top).

Great!  I'm really excited for this and I can't wait to see what people come up with.  I'll clarify a few things from my previous post though so everyone's on the same page. 
  • I think monthly is the best time frame to go for.  As you say, people's lives can get busy and I don't want it to feel like a chore.  (You can't rush genius! :P )  Normally, I think we should give the new theme on the 1st of each month (or close to that.)
  • I've changed my mind and I don't think enforcing a certain form is a good idea.  Write whatever style of poem you want to or you think fits best for the sort of poem you want to write!  Sometimes I think that maybe all of the different forms and the rules put people off, so I don't want to do that.  If you do use a specific style of poem, do say what it is (it'll be a chance for everyone else to learn a little!).
Although I said we should usually start on the 1st of the month, I think I'll start this one today and give everyone (including myself!) a little bit of extra time this month.  So, without further ado, here is the theme for August:

-The Seasons-

Inspired partially by the fact that Onion and I live on opposite sides of the world, and as such experience the different seasons at different times.

Now as I said, 'The Seasons' is the entirety of the theme here and so anything you write that relates to that is great!  If, however, you are looking for a little bit more inspiration I've collected a few things from various sources to help get your writing brain whirring...

The Masque of Four Seasons by Walter Crane:

I mentioned music before, so of course there is an obvious choice here.  Nearly everyone has heard Spring before but perhaps you haven't heard the rest?
The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi

If you live close to the equator, you don't really experience the four seasons like others do, but there are still seasonal differences.  Here are side by side comparisons of a landscape in Zambia during the dry and rainy seasons respectively:

The image was taken from where you can find more pictures if you so desire!

And finally, after all this is a video game sheet music website, here is an extract of the Shadows of Valentia ending song (in English):
The seasons they turn,
Winter to spring.
Dulling the pain and
Erasing the sting.
The seasons turn,
Summer to fall.
Time's warm embrace
Begins to heal all.

Also a bonus, more scientific image about the seasons:

I hope some of these help!

As I said before, I'm looking forward to this a lot.  Also, I too am glad you've joined in E. Gadd!  Hopefully you also would like to take part in this, but don't feel any pressure.  I hope this might also convince some other people to have a go at writing... (We don't bite!)

To end, here is another haiku I just wrote now along the same lines as Onion's V:

Excited to be
Alive; Sharing, Exploring
A world neglected.

Edit: Of course don't let this get in the way of posting unrelated poetry.  I'll certainly still be posting random haikus that I happen to come up with while walking to work.

Thanks for going so in depth with your criticism, it's really very helpful.  I'm not all that experienced with this formatting stuff so I pretty much made every change you suggested and I've updated the files in question.  I'll try to think about this stuff more carefully in future.

Edit:  Also I have the full version of finale so I should be able to do everything that's possible.

Home-Made Compositions / Libera's Compositions
« on: July 21, 2018, 08:19:02 PM »
I used to do a fair bit of composing many years ago.  Getting back into music-y stuff in general convinced me that I should probably do some again.  I mostly do art-songs, but have been known to do to other stuff.  I have a few that I wrote some years ago that I've never properly notated, so I might do that at some point and stick them up here.

Instead of that, here's one that I wrote literally this afternoon/evening.  A. E. Housman is my favourite poet, and he's an absolute charm to set.  If you want a little bit of context, Housman was an English poet in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century and this poem in particular was published in 1922.

Lancer- [Musx] [Pdf] [Mid] [Mus]

If you notice any problems with the sheets or have any criticism in general, let me know.  (In particular I'm not very good at getting Finale to play it like I want it to, so any help regarding that sort of stuff would be appreciated).

I'd be interested in doing one of these (especially since it'll help me stay motivated to not procrastinate).  I'd probably want to do the Shadows of Valentia OST, but its pretty massive (88 songs if I'm not mistaken) so I'll need to pick some subset of this.  I don't know if you have an opinion on how to pick that subset, but at the moment this is what I'm thinking:

1. Where the Wind Rustles 2:03
2. The Ark of Dawn 3:25
3. Undiscovered Horizons 4:13
4. A Song for Bygone Days 3:22
5. March to Deliverence 3:52
6. With Mila's Divine Protection 3:16
7. What Lies at the End 5:45
8. The Sacrifice and the Saint 5:37
9. Lord of a Dead Empire 5:01
10. Praise this Despair! 4:55
11. Twilight of the Gods 8:08
12. The Fallen Knight 2:16
13. Pride and Arrogance 1:40
14. The Scions' Dance in Purgatory 2:35
15. Monstrosity 2:23 [This is originally from Fire Emblem: Awakening but it's in the game so...]
16. Truth 3:27
17. In a Silver Garden with You 3:30
18. Afterglow 0:26
19. The Afterglow Fades 3:39
20. The Course of Gods and Men 6:17
21. The Voice That Calls You 3:11
22. The Heritors of Arcadia 4:15.

(Nearly all of these tracks loop just under halfway though).

I'm glad you liked them, I certainly had fun writing them.  Your third haiku left me thinking about weather and colour, so I guess that inspired I, II and IV.

You're right, it is a silly one but it made me laugh so thank you for that.  I wouldn't have thought of using accountancy as a topic for a haiku!  I particularly like 'arithmetic tales through time' as a way of viewing spreadsheets (it certainly makes them sound more exciting!).

I was thinking it might be cool (if you were interested) to pick a theme and we could both (or anyone else who wants to join in, of course) go off and write a poem on that theme and then we could share them afterwards.  I don't know what sort of time frame would be best (maybe bimonthly, or monthly?) but I'm open to suggestions on that.  Maybe we could also pick a type of poem to write, or we could leave that undecided?  (I don't know a whole lot about poetry forms, but I'm sure some googling could remedy that.)  I'm also not sure on how we should pick a theme but we could always just take it in turns if that's simplest.

A post on here wouldn't be complete without a poem of some form, so here's another of the haikus I wrote last Monday (sadly less cheery than yours):

Heaven is colder
than I had imagined it.
No angels, no sky

Edit:  About the 'theme', it could be a word (like 'Triumph' or 'Discovery') or maybe it could be a picture or a story or even (this might be quite difficult) a piece of music.  As I said before, I'm very open to suggestions.

Wow, that's a lot of feedback.  Thank you for taking the time to look through my sheets.


I've fixed some things regarding this but at the moment this sheet isn't really a priority for me.  I'll probably go back to it properly at some point, but since it's so short I won't want to waste a submission with it.  Thanks for looking at it anyway; I'll use your criticism when I go back to it later.



-I used cross-staving if it's only for a beat since a clef change seems silly to me there.  I prefer clef changes to cross-staving generally though so I've kept those in.
-Everything else has been changed.

-I think I've fixed the opening beat now.
-I find hearing inner voices in chords pretty hard, so thanks for the help on that.  I've added them now.
-In m.10 beat 2 it is definitely two semiquavers.  I fixed the rest of the notes (I have no idea how I got them so wrong).
-I have no idea what you mean about m.15.
-Everything else has been changed.



-Most of my slurs are actually phrase markings.  I guess that's something people don't really do on here since someone has brought me up on it before.
-Everything else has been changed.


-Everything here has been changed.

Once again, thanks for taking the time to look through these!

Not sure what my arrangements say about my piano playing, but I used to play loads.  I was really into classical piano but I eventually got burned out because it was very difficult and I found the performances were too stressful.  Nowadays I'm more into singing but I still enjoy playing the piano in a more casual way.
