So FIRST, oh my god, the VidUKon auction was an amazing success! We raised almost £250 including £111 for RAINN. So that was pretty fantastic. Many thanks to the vidders (buffyann, LithiumDoll, jagwriter78 and purplefringe) and all the bidders!

Also, I finished this a while ago but I should probably post it. I'm not sure it's as epic or successful at evoking a particular tone as my string quintet, but I'm pretty happy with it in the sense I feel I started cracking the use of accidentals for some deliberate dischordant...ness. Plus, a wild key change appears!

I do think I probably should have not been quite so minimalist with the left hand obsession with repetitive thirds, though. Oops?

I love this. I think it evokes what it's meant to - i.e. the sound of rain (I get visuals when listening to music sometimes, and this gives me a strong rain visual, so I'd say it totally works). I actually like it better than the quintet, but it's possible I need to listen to that again (because oops I fell into a Dragon Age shaped hole, as you know). I also like the repetitive thirds (I think it makes a nice, solid rhythm, and I don't think you went too minimalist with them).

Also I wanted to ask if I could have the .pdf of it so I could learn to play it, please? I don't know that I'd get it any time soon (I'm not sure how one plays those wiggly bits, but I'd learn). You don't have to send it if you don't want to, I totally understand.

I might have to title something Wild Accidentals. I know. It's my new band name :D

I didn't think notifs were still borked, but I get so few so that's probably why I didn't notice. I don't mind late replies though :)

I'm glad you're happy with the final piece :) because I know how easy it is to make something, finish and then go, "WTF". I keep getting the middle bit stuck in my head, but that only makes me want to learn it more. And thank you ever so much for giving me a .pdf of it. Just got to print it out now! (it'll ptobably be easier on my hands than the Halo theme - there's some wicked stretches in that that are verging on impossible, I swear).

Ah, OK. I always wondered how those were done (you get that sort of arpeggio-ation (now a word) in chiptunes, and I never knew how it was done. But now I do!)
