But if they know what you're doing, then that means they're geeks too, right?
Yes, but there are alpha-build Users here. If we don't keep our posts out of the gutter, the alpha-builds won't compile correctly.
Other peoples' alpha-builds aren't my user's responsibility. If they're unable to compile on their own, they shouldn't be in the Grid unsupervised by their user...
And if they're old enough to understand the innuendo, then they're old enough to see it.
You write your own? As in new harmonics and such?
Yeah, you knew that already. It's just very slow-going, in part because I have way too much on my musical plate, and in part because I have pretty much no patience for messing around with orchestration (It's probably why I write largely for choir or, at most, string orchestra).
Mostly I've just got bits and pieces. I have parts of a "Rinzler" theme (all original except a short sample of the melody of the T:L
theme at the end for a tie-in, with original accompanying harmonies), an idea for a re-work of the Son of Flynn
theme (as a sort of elegy; based on my Elise story & you know what happens to Sam at the end of that) though I haven't really started it, did some messing around with a vocal version of Solar Sailor
Also based on my Elise story I started work on an "Elise Theme" incorporating the T:L
theme (working in vocals and bagpipes) but that hasn't gotten very far either, in part because of the pipes-- the playback bagpipes on my MuseScore suck royally; and pipes are very difficult to write for because of pitch issues (they don't generally play at A-440 except with special "concert pitch" chanters) and a relatively small range, and quite frankly I haven't decided if I should write it orchestrally or actually authentic to music I would write that pipes could play.
(Actually, having just gone and messed around with it... silly of me never to have tried the theme on whistle before. Not for Elise's sake, but the Flynns must be Irish, after all... and it's lovely, esp. with some ornamentation added to give it that Celtic feel.)
