Have your survivors write an essay on your piece to benefit from your will. Finally a captive audience, LOL. I actually have my own three part requiem but I use that term liberally as it is not composed as a Mass.

Are you talking about bribery? No part of the will unless you write an essay?

And the appointed executor would have to be a qualified music expert to grade the essays just to be certain the composition was well listened-to. I think my heirs would laugh their collective butts off....because I am always torturing them with my work... and well we are talking serious coin here....

Laugh? I would be appalled if I were a survivor of yours. If I were remembered in someone’s will, I would want to be remembered for our genuine friendship and mutual caring rather than a transactional relationship. I know I would decline your offer of ‘serious coin’ but perhaps your friends are different than those that I consider friends.

Why don't you make sure you can keep up before you get insulting, LOL.

I hope you’ll realize that. ‘Your serious coins’ are not of value to everyone. Leave them to someone or some cause of value. This is no joke.

gaffster - maybe I should go back through the Composers Lounge and look for you compositions, make nice comments about them and make it into your will for some serious coin. grin

Seriously, I think it's sad to see all the music in the 'Member's Recordings' sub-forums and probably the Composer's forum go un-listened to or at least not commented on. Unless you're famous or lucky enough be in a musical family or have a circle or musical friends (mine are mostly fellow gardeners) piano and composing seems to be a lonely hobby. I'm a relative newcomer to PW, but I've started to listen to and and look for something positive to say to people that have taken the time to record and post a part of their musical selves on the forum.

gaffster - I find yor idea interesting 🤔, although a bit desperate: you’d never know your pieces had been listened to! 😉

lilypad - I completely agree with you. I’ve also started to listen to the pieces posted here (and some other places). I also try to say something. But when I don’t like them, I don’t comment. What is the point of telling someone “I don’t like your piece”? What do you do when you don’t like it?
