This week on SoundNotion, Sam, Dave, and Nate nerd out about the W3C Music Notation Community Group, the Interstellar Golden Record is available on NASA’s SoundCloud page, the music world says goodbye to Vic Firth, and the panel solves streaming.
What are our various professional organizations good for? What are they good (and bad) for? How can we be better members of our professional organizations? How can we make our organizations better? Bonus: Dave shares a personal beef.
On a side note, this will be our final episode of Music is Hard. We’ve had a great time making these. Thanks to everyone who listened. Look for some new shows from SoundNotionTV soon.
Just last week, Tim premiered a new work by Dave. How do composers and performers see the process of premiering a work differently? How is giving the first performance of a new work different from performing other works?
This week, we recorded the show right before Tim heads to far-off Tempe, Arizona for the North American Saxophone Alliance Biennial Conference to premiere a new work by Dave. What’s the point of conferences? How do we take advantage of the opportunities they afford us?

What good are academic music conferences? Why should we care about them? How can we make them better? Also, this new Google Music thing is pretty rad. And of course, what would an episode of Music is Hard be without a recap of our favorite reality singing competition show?
