The fourth demo for the opera Majora was posted on June 3rd, 2012. This is the official makeover, 7 years later.

The revisions chart for Majora got a makeover.
Due to the influx of people new to the project, I've decided to condense the basics about the opera in a single introductory Q&A. If you're new to the project, this is for you.
If you're not new to the project, but still like watching Q&As, this is for you too.
Bagpipes have no dynamics because they have no respect for anyone.
Just get a decent quill.
... then they'll get to show off.
Today we realized that, regardless of their gender, the opera's trumpet players would have to dress as Gerudo Pirates for Act II in order to mingle with the female choir on stage.

We would only learn of this later.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lYkTXK38co Barely edited footage of work on Majora's score. Not for the easily bored.
My original purpose for streaming on YouTube was to show live work on the score and how painstakingly slow the process is, along with interaction with those interested (aka those who wouldn't be bored to death). Because of limited capabilities, however, general streaming stability proved impossible, so we resorted to plan B, and you're looking at it.
We share score files in a GitHub repository and split tasks and sections among each other. Because I myself am a complete noob to Lilypond/Frescobaldi (the program chosen by Miguel Jesus to which to convert my original notation files and engrave the final score) I mainly direct the revisions.
