How to direct musicians, by MBulteau

Long time no post, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been stuff going on.

The revision of Act I is nearing its completion.

Act II, meanwhile, is incurring an unexpected but very welcome change, wherein one superfluous section related to Anju is being replaced by another (also related to Anju), for the benefit of the story and pacing in general.

The second part of Act II has always been complicated to get right, so I’m glad every time it gets a nudge in the right direction.

December is here, and with it, a wallpaper for you.

Assembled by yours truly, it’s made from the set silhouettes drawn by Mariana Freitas which were used in the Clock Town demo.

Fellow musicians, after much discussion, we’ve come up with notation for chromatic/atonal mordents (it’s all Majora’s fault), with the solution provided by our very own Liam Greenough in the picture above.

These would completely replace the classical mordents we know from the Baroque, since frequent use has made it necessary to always specify the interval at which the ornament is.

We would like to know what you think of these, if they seem sensible and functional to you, or not. If you vote no, please also explain why in a comment, otherwise we will see no reason to count your vote.

Thank you.

P.S: If you’ve already voted on Twitter, please don’t vote here.

Lukewarm tide rising
Waves’ lapping withers the song
At the last sunset
