rant musicmatch 

I checked the page (musicmatch) also with an account. They show no timestamps anywhere so you cannot really find out if some upload has been made just recently or a year ago (incrementing ids may help). That alone is stil ok but the pricing is ridiculous. They plan on charging you $5/month after exceeding single digit(!) number of uploads.
I'm now lurking on bandlab which seems quite busy. Haven't set up my taste bubble yet but it's very lively.

Thanks. Even though I searched for a while I didn't come accross wikiloops. I often find it hard to estimate (without creating an account) if websites have an active user base and are still maintained. The idea of music collaboration via the internet is old and it felt like there are many portals around that once had great ideas but never reached the critical mass of users.

Has anyone ever used musicmatch.net, especially the feature where samples and tracks are thought to evolve as more people contribute their own recordings?


On my ebook devive PDFs generally suck but I thought this was the price I had to pay for the super low energy consumption and decent (book) reading experience.

Hopefully changing pages on an e-ink devive with such a price tag is smoother :D

Thinking of digitalizing the sheet music I already own gives me headache because of all the weird paper formats and aspect ratios.

Up to the last maybe 15seconds I hoped for it to somehow resolve to an uplifting major.

Putting this here, because it's got some piano in it.
This is the 4th take I recorded of this melody and harmonisation.
I think of it as in the Locrian mode of Gflat, but really in Eflat minor I suppose.

I spent quite a long time thinking about the harmonies and melody.

It's also got a lyric.. not quite sure how it fits.. I try to think of feeling, and how I articulate that feeling, then use that for a melody and chords...

Anyway here you go

I made this slow retrosynth new age-y song I am very proud of, and I released it today for free! 🎶💖🎶

The title sound track from the series Tales from the Loop composed by Glass and Leonard-Morgan, played by me using the Vienna Imperial virtual piano. 3m:45 of fairly relaxing #piano. vimeo.com/486994588

I played this in Cm today..
though.. it went wonky at the end.
in future, I won't try to do the Hi NRG riff

This is super cool. Tom Lehrer put all his songs—music and lyrics—up for free: tomlehrersongs.com

I heard tiktok music videos are even optimised for small speakers rather than big ones. It's kind of the style.
