Ludicolo Musical Production/Performance

Because I hear we like music here on UPN, I created this thread! It's not much, but it shall suffice.

I play the piano and currently take AP Music Theory, which is teaching me how to compose. I consider myself an Advanced player, who is adept at technique and possesses a modestly large repertoire of popular and classical music.

DISCUSS!

I'm currently writing a song in FL Studio but am having great difficulty with which direction I want to take it. I made the grave mistake of making a melody before a rhythm and now I'm screwed...

Here's the only complete song I've made through a DAW so far (medium was Reaper, back before I had FLS), although most UPNers have already seen it

BORKED

I play: Guitar, Piano/Synth, trying to learn viola, fuck around with VSTs in FL. I also try to sing but fail horribly, so a vocoder or autotuning is usually needed, though I like to stay instrumental. [](/ppshrug)

I am a decent musician and an accomplished composer. I have conducted an orchestra performing one of my pieces during a live performance.

I am legitimately saving up money right now so I can afford to live on my own and work under as an apprentice to a composer some where, and learn the trade so I can spend the rest of my life as a composer.

Composed and conducted? I'm jelly

Went to guitar center recently and saw a Motif XL for $3000, would absolutely love to have it some day....

I knew a girl in high school who claims she lost her innocence to you and you never called her back. What do you have to say about that?

She didn't make me bacon and pancakes in the morning. nuff said.


Also since I forgot to mention it, my first instrument was Clarinet, since then I've expanded to my new main instrument(bass; upright and guitar), saxophone, guitar, and piano, but I am decent on most instruments.

Also, the first time you conduct an orchestra in concert, at least for me, was pretty overwhelming. Nothing like rehearsals. X_X Totally worth the applause though

In addition to the piece I conducted, I've performed a bunch of other original compositions in small ensembles... I've got my name on like, 5 program notes

Crazy. And you're only 22, 23 years old, too, I take it? Wow. We've got our very own Chiaki here. That's nuts. Good for you!

Kudos Tuner, that's really cool.

I play Bass Clarinet and Bb and Eb Contrabass Clarinet at a senior collegiate level, and Bb Soprano Clarinet and Euphonium/Baritone at a freshman/sophomore college level. I have played Trombone and Oboe (and could probably do so at a high school level within a few hours.

I used to play piano but don't anymore ;;

Bass Clarinet is my favorite clarinet =) Used to play it in a youth symphony

Additionally; if any one tells you to play alto clarinet... Don't.

You have good taste! Alto clarinet is absolutely awful.
