New “Leftover” arrangements ….

*update* my bad – my arrangement ( on v1 now!) wasn’t up yet. it is now. “The Departure” and an excerpt from “She Remembers” are featured. Also got a podcast WIP for next time. Topics like Tom Perotta, Damon Lindeloff, The Guilty Remnant, cool piano music, sad 19th century poetry, music/audio production and maybe even “Black Mirror” will be discussed. –It’s popular TV show, get over yourself….jeezis…. anyway lets try on some Leftover-inspired open-source MIDI by the gang of one at SSStudios, LA cee-ayy.

Damn, Max Richter is one hell of a composer. Had to pay tribute and to the writers who picked out music that was as special/unique/original as the groundbreaking HBO series itself. This one I plan to write out for brass ensemble/drum corps….grabs you by the heart and then even harder by the neck. Richter is a modern Barber. Here is ver1 of my tribute/transcription arrangement (just went live) *update* I want to expand extensively on this one, also located Adagio for Strings v7 so I updated a few things, think this is v8, has a few wrong notes, sorry I was tired….this arr previously had 5000+ views and was by far one of the most popular arrangements online.
Musescore pulled it cuz i guess in Germany [???] it wasnt public dom. yet. so stay tuned for my Letfover[s] suite…..

Quick redesign to offend human eye less ….

Usually I have time to find a WordPress theme that I KIND OF like, but then delve into hours of rewriting, deleting and adding my own PHP & CSS so a) the site doesn’t look like every other damn site on the Web and b) it is ideally remotely aesthetically pleasing, being that I claim to be some form of artist. This time it was not too hard to futz with the p-tags, the H1s, their colors borders, shading, typography, size, weight, etc you get the idea. I made a few other updates, 1) published another podcast literally to make sure I still new how to do it.
2) Gave the site a nice easy dark background.
3) removed hideous green and red text background colors I was using.
4) Made the main site image a screenshot of recursively generated forest scene, it draws something different and remarkably realistic each time it runs — and will draw more for every mouse-click. I wrote it in the Processing language in conjunction with another lover of random numbers and trees. I’ll post the code if I can find it.
5) Masthead appears as old-timey newspaper gothic image instead of cold, sterile title and site description. and
6) I posted this, so shut up.
