Re: [Mutopia-discuss] Peter Pan incidental music

Hi Joel,As Knute points out, for syntax questions and special effects with 
LilyPond, the LP mailing list will offer you the best and deeper pool of 
knowledge.I offer my help looking at your code and making suggestions to 
facilitate later publishing in Mutopia.  These would be in the area of file 
structure, and if you wish to invest time in doing covers, TOC's, etc.MIDI 
optimization can be a low return-on-time-investment proposition.  There's some 
things I do invest time to correct on my MIDI's (mostly to quell my OCD)...like 
hidden tags to adjust volume, change tempos, but reality is LilyPond MIDI 
encoder still has lots of systemic shortcomings that preclude a quality 
rendering possible with other tools. Javier ruiz-almajav...@ruiz-alma.com

Returning to this at long last…

While I do still intend to contribute a version of this effort to
Mutopia, I’m finding it easier to work on it as an independent project;
see <https://github.com/jcsalomon/ CrookJ-PeterPan>.

In the Releases page for that project, I have my current drafts of the
first 13 scores in this collection: LilyPond source, PDF score, and MIDI
rendering.

I can use some help with this from folks who are more familiar with
LilyPond or musical notation than I.  There are minor details (which
relative key is correct for any given score, whether any particular slur
should be a phrasing slur instead), more noticeable formatting issues
(how to program the accelerando/ritardando in PP04 “The Shadow Dance”,
or the change of singer in PP13 “The Building of the House”), and
LilyPond issues (are my score blocks overly complicated, or am I perhaps
missing some things that should be there? can I combine articulate.ly
with \acciaccatura? how do I make fermata sound better?).

The response came today:
 Dear Joel

 Thank you for your enquiry and your courtesy in contacting us.

 I am happy to confirm that GOSH does not have any rights in John
 Crook's music, which did not belong to Barrie neither, so the music
 would not have been part of the gift of the copyright to the work.

 Since Crook died in 1922, his work would be out of copyright in the EU
 and probably in the rest of the world as well.

 With best wishes

With that confirmation, I would ask that people take a look at what
I've uploaded to
https://github.com/jcsalomon/MutopiaProject/tree/peterpan/ftp/CrookJ/PeterPan
and comment on the Lilypond coding style.

Re: [Mutopia-discuss] Peter Pan incidental music

2014-12-26 Thread Glen Larsen
Taking a look at the title page on google books I would say that the source
field in the header should read:

  source = Price  Reynolds, 41, Berners Street W, London

This, along with the publication date, provide a clear statement of what
you used as a base for this transcription.

You may want to use the phrase, The Music to J. M. Barrie’s Successful
... as a subtitle, depending on how busy you want the top of the page to
look.

Regarding a new style called incidental: as you observed it is not a
style so much as it is an explanation for its purpose or, possibly, its
brevity. I think study or overture would fall into the same category.
In this collection, there is a music for The Pirates Depart which would
be a fair result when searching for a march so I'm leaning towards
selecting from existing styles.

This is a good place for that discussion but you could also add it as an
issue in github if you feel strongly about it.

[Mutopia-discuss] Peter Pan incidental music

2014-12-23 Thread Joel C. Salomon
Folks,

I've just come across the incidental music to the original stage
production of Peter Pan; or, The Boy who wouldn't Grow Up.  Both Google
Books (http://books.google.com/books?id=J-wQYAAJ) and the Internet
Archive (https://archive.org/details/musictojmbarrie00barrgoog) seem to
think this music, published in 1905, is in the public domain.  (I have
been unable to track down when the composer John Crook died, though; and
I understand it'll need to be confirmed that he died earlier than 1944
before this can be added to Mutopia -- can anyone help here?)

At any rate, I've begun to re-typeset some of this in Lilypond with the
intention of submitting this to Mutopia.  I've forked the project at
GitHub; see https://github.com/jcsalomon/MutopiaProject/commit/14e70804

I'm not at all certain I've got the header correct, and I'd appreciate
some guidance.  Here's what I've put down so far:

\header {
title = The Arrival of the Crocodile
composer = John Crook (18??–19??)
opus = Peter Pan
date = 1905
style = Incidental
source = The Music to J. M. Barrie’s Successful Play Peter 
Pan, or,
The Boy who wouldn’t Grow Up

maintainer = Joel C. Salomon
maintainerEmail = joelcsalo...@gmail.com
license = Public Domain

mutopiatitle = The Arrival of the Crocodile
mutopiaopus = Peter Pan
mutopiacomposer = CrookJ
mutopiainstrument = Piano
}

Questions:

* I've created the new file at
ftp/CrookJ/PeterPan/PP08_Arrival_of_the_Crocodile/PP08_Arrival_of_the_Crocodile.ly
with the idea that the opus is Peter Pan and the individual pieces
correspond to movements -- is this correct?

  (I know that I'll have to explicitly request the addition of the
CrookJ directory; but I'm not yet ready for that step.)

* The `date` and `source` fields are from the songbook as it was
published in 1905.  I don't know whether you want the IA URL or
something similar here.

* None of the choices for the `style` listed on the website really fit.
 Is it alright to create the category Incidental for this, or should
it be shoehorned under Classical?
