Refresh

Right, old • Left,  refresh
Ah, everything's so fresh and so clean, clean! I spent the past couple of months updating my site, getting rid of all the visual clusters and untidy semantics prevalent in the old version. All that's left now is some funky tunes!

Urtext ma non troppo

From Taneyev to Busoni
After publishing Dreamstory I began realizing a change in the way I made harmonies and melodies (elegant jazzy chords, anyone?). This, in addition to immersing myself in a plethora of piano music by Liszt, Chopin, Bach and Ravel sparked my interest into (Western) music notation and professional music composition.

Using Sibelius I started out with the default Opus font while manually inputting the notes. I was unhappy with the way the notes looked so ventured on a pursuit for a new music font. I came across Bravura by musical software company Steinberg. Although incompatible with Sibelius a modified version called Taneyev by polymath Andrew Moschou will work. Overall the design seemed too pudgy for my tastes.
