Hello, I apologise for asking these questions yet again, so I have put the problems and questions in the context of what I am hoping to do
Projects, layouts and flows – in organising a piece of music.
In order to try to sort out more information about these musical elements in Dorico I will plan to start on a musical project, and ask questions as I go.
The piece of music is in A – B – A form, an introductory element (A) which is quite fast, with an accompaniment, possibly on a piano. It will be made up of a number of themes, which will be probably written in different flows, to enable them to be used more than once in this part of the piece.
The second element (B) is slower, probably in a related minor key, with different instruments, so it is quite different to the first element. Again, there will probably be a number of themes.
The final element © is a repeat of some of the themes from the first part, with possible references to the second elements themes but in a major way. Again, there will be themes, from both of the other elements, and the possible use of new themes as well.
The themes from all of the elements will be put into a separate project, called, say, Ideas, as separate flows, but the first questions arise : how many layouts would need to be used ? how would the flows be organised – 1 – intro element flows, 2 – slow minor flows , and 3 – new elements for the finale , with the repeated flows from intro flows being used from the first section ?
When to main project is set up - MAIN -, I presume that the initial music can be imported from the first layout/flow, but what does the end of that flow look like – just end of music ? How is the second selected flow added to the project ? This would continue – I think – until the first element is concluded, but what happens then ? Is the layout for the second section (B) then imported, adjusted, then the flows associated with it added ?
Will the third element © need a new layout ? Can the themes needed which were first used in the first element just be pasted in from layout 1, or, as they will have different instruments used, will it be necessary for the themes be repeated in their new form in the third element, together with any new themes (eg a coda in some form) in yet another set of flows in layout 3 ?
Sorry for yet again asking about these, but I thought that if I asked these questions in the context of what I want to do, it would make it easier to understand
