@Kye ...now I want to do the same thing but by setting lines of poetry people send. Not whole poems, just... lines.

I have so many after-the-PhD projects!

If you are a composer of church music and you are not a man, you may be interested in my side project, Cecilia's List:
ceciliaslist.org

If you are an organist/director of music/person who makes decisions about church music, you may also be interested regardless of your gender!

I compose choral music, and put it online under a CC by-SA license so choirs can sing it for free!

Publishers won't touch my work because I won't let them prohibit photocopying, so I need support from people like you.

My Patreon is patreon.com/artsyhonker

I have other options for people who prefer them:
artsyhonker.net/support

Thanks so much!










Creative types: Does anyone have a recommendation for MIDI creation/editing software? I've been thinking about getting into that kind of thing but I have no idea where to start...

Ok, so I have a tweet that's getting kind of popular on birbsite and I want to share the essence here too:

A guy tweeted that MySpace had lost all the music uploaded to it from 2003-2015. " An entire archive just... gone, forever."

So... this is your periodic reminder that uploading stuff to a website isn't an archive.

Almost home! and I get to ride an electric Goblin. Hurrah for trains.

That went well.

And now I can catch up on other stuff for a while.

Need to write my presentation for Monday.

Feeling a bit meh about it. I have a good outline but need to do diagrams and so on.

Artists who make a living (or part of one) online, how much do you charge for consulting work to other artists on how to do that, what works, what doesn't work etc?

There's a pub less than a mile from my parents' house.

They've never walked there. I've never been there at all.

My cousin and his wife were staying and wanted to try it, so on Saturday we walked there. Only to realise when it was a few yards away that we were separated from it by a thunderingly busy road and to get there safely we'd have to go a long way round through multiple pedestrian crossings.

My cousin and his wife couldn't be bothered going that far out of their way when the pub was RIGHT THERE, so they dashed across and narrowly missed being hit by a lorry. I waited ages to follow safely and then narrowly missed being hit by a different lorry.

This is car culture. When short distances are judged to be unwalkable because of the threat of traffic.

I think one of the interesting things about working as a choral composer is that it is inherently collaborative.

Sheet music isn't a finished work the way, say, a recording or a painting might be. For full appreciation, to reach a listening audience, it needs further labour, which I cannot always provide.

Even the intermediate target audience of people who I hope might perform my work are more likely to if there is an extant recording.

I have to admit my motivation has been a bit lacking. Some more backers would do me good. Thanks to everyone who has already become a patron! 👏 😆 🎉
