  1. It's ridiculous how so many are intolerant to music in other languages. Are you listening to music or reading poetry? I don't know, lyrics have always seemed a secondary thing to me. I'm listening to a musical composition, and if the words happen to complement it well, great. Oftentimes people won't listen to a rock song in another language but they'll listen to Latin opera pieces or even some sort of Spanish music. Whenever I hear someone being shown a foreign song and complaining "But I don't understand it", I tell them "Of course you understand it. Everyone understands notes."

    It seems like kind of an arbitrary reason to isolate yourself from 80%+ of the music in the world.

  2. 2) MySong, from what I can see, does pretty basic harmonizations. I haven't seen or heard anything on the website that suggests it's capable of coming up with anything a halfway-decent composer wouldn't think of.

    I get the technology as a tool bit, but MySong looks far too limited to be of real use to anyone but its target audience -- people who don't know how to write music. It could perhaps speed up the writing process for a composer, but there's no indication that it will improve a composer's output.

    Yeah, it looks to follow the most basic syntactic structures, starting with static harmony oscillating from the tonic to another degree, then following up with a few measures of straightforward dynamic harmony. The chord choices are disgustingly simple and I sincerely hope that's not the only arrangement it can come up with. I wonder what it would do if you input a melody that strongly implied various mid-phrase key modulations. Crash? Hoho...

  3. It's funny that he's touting the orchestral scheme to such an extent because I still think his Secret of Evermore soundtrack is his best work, as well as one of my favorite soundtracks. While I myself do orchestration and love it, I've always wished he'd return to the less conventional or smaller ensembles he made use of back in SoE.

  4. This argument exists in a more informed capacity in dozens of threads at Smashboards. I'd suggest reading Scar's Thread on Melee vs. Brawl and Gimpyfish's thread about Sakurai not wanting Brawl to be competitive. Also you don't seem to understand Melee if you think it's all 0% - Death combos. :(

  5. Poor baby, a whole two weeks away? However will you manage?

    Crush all anticipation. None of that shit here, thanks. How are we supposed to get work done with people being "excited" left and right. Wipomatic, it's up to you and me to get rid of all these unseemly enthusiastic sorts.
