The Sleep Experiment: The Sheet Music

May 17, 2009 at 7:53 pm UTC

Here are the parts… just download your individual part, choose the top or bottom notes in the splits, and sing.

A lot of you asked my why I couldn’t just upload the full score, and the answer is simple: I don’t own the copyright. My great friends at Walton Music, who publish almost all of my earlier catalog, are the sole owners of the copyright. (The copyright is usually the first thing you give up when you publish a piece with another company). I mostly self-publish now so I still own all of my newer pieces. For all of you composers out there, I’ll post soon and specifically address all of the pros and cons of publishing; it’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make.

A bunch of you sent me the extracted parts, and I decided to post the first ones that got to me. My deepest thanks to Martin Gieseking of Germany for engraving these individual parts and sending them so quickly. (Martin’s not the German singer who recorded all nine parts of Lux, but he is a composer.). And a big shout-out to Samuel Hunter, whose parts came in just a few minutes after Martin’s. So sorry to hear about your Grandmother, Sam – all the best to you and your family.

EDIT: I’ve taken down the parts, and will put them back up after I’ve had a chance to review them. Apparently there are a few errors – I didn’t look closely before I posted.
