just chilling with my honey for v-day <3 <3 <3
I'm Erik Scheele, known online as "Jit" at the moment. I'm one of the digital musicians on the Homestuck music team, and primarily play piano.
I generally use this blog for posting lots of things that are not necessarily homestuck or related to me, so if you want to just see a more official blog, I have one located here for music/major updates/projects/etc.
Anonymous asked: So what is the pedal like on Sarabande from Vol. 5? I noticed it wasn't marked, and I'm not asking a new draft, but did you use it at all? It's a bit hard for me to pick up on that sort of thing. Thanks!
You can pretty much pedal every measure. Or maybe every chord if the melody gets muddy. I dunno, I was pretty loose with it. But it’s definitely in there yeah. (And no you didn’t get the wrong blog or anything)
A show I’m music-directing (teaching vocals, accompanying, etc.) has got two people with Down’s syndrome in it, does anyone have advice/things to avoid/anything like that when working with them?
Anonymous asked: I think you're right... but also, I don't?
That’s fine, I mean, there’s a lot of stuff in that post so it might be kinda hard to agree with everything.
Anonymous asked: why are you saying callout blogs are bad if the whole point is to show if someone turned out to be a pedo or something. sorry that people you've talked to turn out to be groping people in their sleep or smth
I launched into a whole ramble under the cut, starting off as the answer.
Callout blogs. They’re basically on the same level as Encyclopedia Dramatica.
Or at least the two that I’ve read.
sublimesublemon asked: I'm really curious: How much of the music in the Homestuck albums is played on physical instruments, versus synthesized with something like Bandcamp?
Bandcamp is my favorite synthesizer
The vast majority of Homestuck music is played with synth instruments, but the many exceptions are notable.
I only just saw this real-life wizard thing and I am pffffffffffbting so hard.
