I write code and I write music. I'm currently studying for a master's in computer science, researching how music can be used to create user interfaces, and writing the music for Takamo Universe, a 4X space MMO.

comment Do we find music arranged according to Western Music Theory pleasing because of “biological instinct” or because of what we learn?
I'm not an expert, but the general view I've picked up is that musical tastes are a little of both. Musical sounds have certain physical properties that other sounds don't that gives rise to some notes sounding empirically, quantifiably consonant or dissonant. In addition, different listeners from different cultures and backgrounds have acquired tastes for different musical constructs.

comment Which one to teach first: solfege or absolute notation?
Even as a kid, I didn't enjoy singing but was more interested in reading sheet music. Solfege is only really applicable to singing, so it's not going to apply to what all your students will end up wanting to do with music, but arguably learning absolute notation doesn't have this problem.

I stand corrected! I apologize for the downvote. :p

comment What staff affected by a dynamic mark?
-1: I'm pretty sure I've never seen dynamic marks for piano music written above the treble staff. I believe dynamics between the staves apply only to the treble clef, and dynamics below the bass clef only apply to the bass clef.

comment Software for trying out 19-TET (and others)
I think the question I voted as a duplicate, whether it really is a duplicate or not, should be very interesting to you, @dancek. It discuss how to configure MIDI to use alternative tuning systems!

comment Logic Pro X Movie Sound
I can't post a full answer at this time, but here are some discussions on other forums about bouncing without the original video's audio. (They're both for older versions of Logic, but hopefully they'll still be helpful.) logicprohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=260283 logic-users-group.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2144

comment Logic Pro X Movie Sound
A sloppy workaround would be to remove the audio from the original movie altogether in a separate video editing program, then use the silent version of the video in Logic. But you're right, it seems like there should be a way to do this all in Logic. (I don't work with movies in Logic myself, so I don't know.)

comment How do I become a better electronic music producer?
I disagree with many of the points in this answer. DnB is, in fact, in 4/4 - it just tends to be syncopated. And a lot of electronic music does have powerful chord changes - ambient, electro and progressive house, dnb besides jungle, world fusion, trance, and even some dubstep usually have chord changes in my experience.

comment How many types of modulation are there?
Thanks for the answer! I think it would be more helpful if you explained what each type of modulation is or have an example for each of them.

@MeaningfulUsername I agree that this particular question is off-topic. But I think Sheraff's going to ask some really good questions based on the interest he's shown in this question, so we should welcome him to our site =)

comment Score transcription community
@Sheraff That would probably be off-topic. We don't answer questions asking for analysis of specific pieces, unfortunately. What you could do, however, is ask a question about how to recognize which beats instruments start on in general, then use the advice you learn to figure out your specific problem. You could probably even use your specific piece as an example, as long as your question is general enough.

If you ever have a specific question about scoring, Music.SE can help you out. It looks like you have a lot of rep on Worldbuilding, so you should already have a sense for what types of questions would be on-topic here =)

comment What is the “unresolvable chord”?
I have to say, I disagree with your sister. One of my favorite songs just plays a Isus4 chord for almost the entire song and doesn't resolve it when it ends!

comment How to create fast runs (i.e. speedy notes)?
Doing the math, that's 11-12 notes per second. Thanks for the clarification!
