(12,13)I make a living writing music for professional musicians, ensembles, orchestras and institutions (such as festivals, etc.), and I'm also part of the adjunct company of TACT, a New York-based theater group (for New Yorkers: Our stage is the Florence Gould Theater, 59th street between Park and Madison), and I occasionally write for television and film in Norway. (2,3,6,7,8,9,11,14,15,16,17,18))I can read anything, and my ears usually afford me the ability to transcribe whatever I wish to.(10) I used to be a decent tenor/baritone, and I had singing lessons in my younger days.(1) Although I rarely perform in public these days, I had a career of sorts as a guitarist when I was in my teens. I play piano, but I'm not even remotely good. I am also an atrocious conductor. (19) Music is my livelyhood, my passion and my favourite pastime.

(20) I did perform in educational/ school related bands years ago. And I have written some music for more pedagogical purposes.

Short answer: I like to listen to music, but I have hardly any knowledge of the theory behind it. I could learn, I suppose, but I don't see any need to.

1. How many instruments do you play? (list if possible) I play keyboard once every few years. I try to play film music then and I am usually capable of making it sound similar to known themes. But nothing more than just "similar".

2. Can you read standard music notation? Yes, but it takes a long time to decipher it.

3. Can you write music using standard music notation? Never tried.

4. Have you studied music theory? Not at all.

5. Do you understand the concepts of consonance, dissonance, and harmony ? Nope.

6. Can you comprehend alto clef? Alto WHAT?

7. Can you comprehend treble clef? Nope.

8. Can you comprehend bass clef? I know what a bass is. Does that count? :roll:

9. Can you comprehend tenor clef? Ehm... :?

10. Can you sing? I can sing simple tunes if I know the lines. But to say that I can really sing good: No. :(

11. Do your ears have training/recognition ability? What does that mean?

12. Have you ever composed/created a musical piece lasting a minute or more? Nope. But I have once pressed random buttons on my keyboard. I didn't record that though.

13. Have you ever done professional musical work? No.

14. Do you understand the concept of ryhthm? More-or-less.

15. Do you understand the concept of pitch? I've always wondered what "pitch" is.

16. Do you understand the concept of ryhthm? Isn't this the same question as above? :|

17. Do you know the difference between monophony and homophony? Nope.

18. How many instruments can you identify by their sound? I don't know. 10 or 20 maybe? Just the well-known instruments and the truly distinct one. But sometimes I can't even tell if music is synthesized. *Is ashamed* :oops:

19. How musically inclined do you consider yourself? I like film music. Especially good film music by good composers with John Williams in particular, of course.

20. Ever performed in an education/school related band or orchestra? Nope.
