Recordings and Performers

I think it's great that we finally host recordings, although I remember that much of the administrative members were opposed to the idea for a long time due to copyright issues (although the signature thing seems to be taking care of that and any issues that come up with any problematic scores). A f...

Re: Typesets of more recent scores

In this particular case (with Schulhoff's Inventions), the work was performed during the composer's lifetime, but before the first publication. Is it still public domain in Canada?

Re: Typesets of more recent scores

But, say, I somehow had access to whatever source documents *they* used to produce their published edition, these documents being the composers' manuscripts in the case that the edition is the first publication of his works. The manuscripts are public domain (in Canada), since the composer died in 1...

Typesets of more recent scores

I recently typeset some scores by Erwin Schulhoff (d.1942 - so PD in Canada), as the edition I had dated from 1993 and was thus still in copyright pretty much everywhere. I (perhaps naïvely) assumed that there must have been another published score of an earlier date, but I was wrong. I later saw th...

Family trees?

I think it would be quite helpful (and interesting!) to be able to browse composers who belong to the same family (e.g. Bach, Strauss, Mozart, Schulhoff etc) by their family tree. Maybe in their Composer Page there could be a string saying "X's son, and father of Y." and then a link saying...

Re: New Period

Yeah, "Contemporary" sounds good. I've also mentioned how I dislike the use of "Modern" to signify anything after 1945, as I think "Modern" comes with particular connotations and associations in mind (the modernist movement), which pretty much finished at about 1945, an...

New Period

I was thinking it would be very useful if we could have a new time period, namely "Living Composers" - which will have the oldest composer's birth date as a starting date, and it would extend to today. It would be very interesting to be able to browse through scores of living composers, se...

Re: Manuscript vs Typeset vs New Composition

That is annoying - have you contacted them and stuff? Ironically, I googled your name and "score music", and a DVD came up which includes the following line along its contents: Neff, Lyle K. - 3 Memories for Bassoon and Piano - full score and part include title pg n cc notice So they've li...

Re: Manuscript vs Typeset vs New Composition

Sounds good. Besides, it's always better to be on the safe side with these things, rather than find out that lots of people have had their scores sold on ebay because they forgot to change the default, or any other reason. In terms of actual coding, is it something that requires special privilages/a...

Re: Manuscript vs Typeset vs New Composition

What about a "New Composition: [ ]" checkbox, and the File/Image Type options remaining the same? (without "New Composition") This way, the work could be tagged as a New composition (whatever that implies - i.e. different copyright status tags, different categories etc) but peopl...

Manuscript vs Typeset vs New Composition

I was uploading some pieces of mine earlier, and I had trouble with the "File/Image type" field. My complaint was that, some of my music is handwritten, but I can't select "Manuscript" because it needs to be a public domain file, and mine aren't (they are released under a CC by-s...

Automated Thumb/Preview files

I had posted this under "Other", but I think it belongs here more. And I couldn't find a "Move post" button, so I deleted the other one and started this one: I was just wondering.. is there no way we can set up a script to automatically take the first page of a score, resize it a...

Graphic Scores

I am about to upload quite a few of my scores on the website, and I was thinking that it would be great if we could add another option under "File/Image Type" in the file submission process. Many contemporary composers work/have worked with open scores, graphic scores, mobile forms, all so...

Re: Untapped sources for orchestral scores/parts of operas

I live in London, and thus have easy access to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. However, I looked on their website and did a short google search, which didn't reveal any (public) libraries. Do you know of any way to gain access to such libraries? Would I be able to access the libraries if I s...

Maps on nationality pages

Yes or no? http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Greek_composers Maybe the particular map is too big and the country looks too small - possible fixes: enlarge the size of the thumbnail, or use different maps. However, using the wikipedia maps has the advantage of a) the images being definitely within publi...
