When a computer is not so Coincidental...

November 11, 2006 at 8:59 PM

Before I get on a roll, I wanted to say HI PAULINE!!! Sorry I've been so bad abour replying emails...

I am listening to Mikrokosmos. I love the series of pieces! My father did a string orchestra arrangement of Mikrokosmos, so I wanted to see what the piece sounded like on piano before I take all the effort to convert a hand-written score to Finale. Are there stencils or something that people used to use for hand-writing scores? Because I could NEVER get one to look that cool, and I know a lot of tricks for hand-writing parts and scores....

I'm trying to motivate myself to practice, Well, I AM motivated, I'm just in sleep mode right now. I spent all my energy doing errands this morning. Grrr. This was my day for major practice. Since I missed two days.

Of course, I am filling my time on instead. I'm just waiting for the energy to come to me in a flash of I will notice.


p.s. Oh, mikrokosmos is over and my computer randomly chose Stamitz to play next. How appropriate, since I printed off a huge stack of viola and violin music at the library today and that was one I wanted to give a whirl today.

p.s.s. I think I abused the school's library privalege of free printing...and they have it set for double-sided so I didn't even have to get out the scotch tape!!!

Yea, you are right. I always run my ink out quickly, because I print a lot of music from either .pdf files or finale. So I just felt a little weird leaving the library with a binder of music, still hot off the press...

My husband had to print 200 pages for a presentation he made in one of his classes, and he used campus, so I guess it is normal.

Of course, after delving into Bach Partita no. one arr. for viola, Vivaldi concerto in G for viola, Telemann (only first page) and really working Stamitz first page for fingerings...there is hardly hands left for Bartok, Reger, and any one of the tons of duets I printed out.

Oh yea, I wanted to let people know...if they want .pdf files of violin or viola or ensemble music...I'd be glad to share. Of course, for trial purposes, you know? If you are trying a bunch of pieces to figure out waht you want to learn, or checking editions etc. If you are going to preform, getting a real copy is always adviseable. I like to make computer backups in case of lost music and such...(just had to say that to be legal)!

Yea so do I, and ink isn't cheap either, for my printer Black Cartridges are $30, and $40 for color.

I print out tons of things from my school, I felt bad at first but then I did the math... They have laser printers, they buy their ink in bulk. Their ink Probably costs them $50-$60 for one toner Cartridge, which can print up to 10K pages (when in ink conservation mode, maybe more.) So what is it really costing them? $.006
