My latest work. There's more to this than meets the eye. Any comments or criticism welcome.

Ah, the lengths to which the Corkster will go, to try to drum up traffic at his forum!

Hey what about my composition? I thought I'd go one better than Mr Cage by a factor of one note, but what a profound and important note it is. More thought provoking still in that one instrument plays whilst the others do nothing. That says much more to me than Cage's effort.

Do you realise the profound humour in my Op1? The pointlessness of the silent performers presence is all the more enhanced by the one performer that plays the single note.

A masterpiece, basically.

At least Rod Corkin brought this excellent free software to this forum, of which I am a bona fide member. And you don't even have to register at my place to get it!!

I think everyone at this site is already aware of my place, and I don't lick boots to gain membership, as you should already be all too aware. I've hardly gained any registered members from GMG, it is GMG that is gaining from MY SITE on this occasion!!

Now back to my composition...

I, for one, think it is a true masterpiece. I mean, that B note, who could've thought of such a thing? Too bad there's no sound files, I'd be listening all day long......  0:)

Good thinking, I think I can provide a midi of it via the software, not a string quartet admittedly, but you'll get the gist of it. I'll have a go tonight, unless anyone has a fiddle at home and they can record it.

An understatement if there ever was one. This is the absolutely ground-breaking work of the first half of the 21st Century. Music was never the same after Monteverdi and Beethoven. Now we have the privilege of being contemporaries with another radical revolutionary.

Hats off, gentlemen! A genius!

Given the colossal effort that was invested in op. 1, when can we expect opus 2?

I'll compose Op2 as and when I'm 'struck by the muse', so to speak.

To B or not to B, that is the question.  ;D (sorry, *someone* had to say it LOL)

That would be a good title for this piece actually.

If your true intention was to bring this excellent free software to this forum, you would have posted the direct links to the software in this forum.  Instead, you lured GMG members to this thread with a bogus subject heading and posted a link to your forum.  You've resorted to calling me names because I pointed out your plan and posted the links in an effort to truly help my fellow GMG members.  ::)
