  • Will probably be flooding this page with random banter about my findings of this. --Piparkaq 06:34, 4 February 2011 (CST)

The notes at the To Be Continued Screen of Episode 9

  • I'm just curious. Are they the same as the other deciphered notes? -- 07:33, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
They are the same. And actually, there the sharp notes are even more clearly visible than in the opening scene, which proves my earlier transcription at least close to being correct. I'm not so sure about the amount of flat notes thought, but I'm going to try to make a new one since the one we currently have does have some mistakes in it. --Kuhaa 09:42, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much! -- 12:27, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Random stuff about the Opus II

  • As I said in the talkpage of the score file, it would be nice if someone could write a small paragraph explaining how the score could be reconstructed, just as what's on the runes page. Was it flipped or whatever in the end?
  • Also, I don't understand this tweet but since it's packed with sharp/flat/natural signs and question marks I figured out it might be useful. If anybody's in the mood of translating it ...
    • A♭マイナーってねぇよww7フラットw外人は♯じゃなくて♮に見えたのか?5小節目のD♮が音楽理論的にも実際の音もおかしいけどいいのか?

(Disclaimer: I don't know anything about music.)
"That's not A♭ minor (lol) 7 flats (lol) Did the foreigner saw ♯ as ♮? In both music theory and actual sound, that D♮ in the 5th bar is weird. Are you OK with that?" --0x99 21:25, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh sorry, I completely missed the talk page of "Sayaka battle music". So the notes play the bgm from when Sakura battles a witch in ep 9. It's been quite a busy weekend for me so I haven't been involved as much as I would've liked but tomorrow I'll probably review the transcription we currently have linked on this page, and if necessary make a new one since to me there are a few things that look strange. About the tweet, that's really nothing new, the piece is not in Ab minor. I'll try to update the Wiki page in the morning if someone else already hasn't by then. --Kuhaa 21:51, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Turned out I had some free time and here's what I got: Will probably compile a picture explaining where I got all the accidentals after I've slept. --Kuhaa 23:13, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Lol I uploaded what I have made few minutes ago and they look just same. --Mr. Anon 23:18, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
I replaced the "Madoka and Sayaka's Troll in D-flat, Opus II"'s links with midi and transcription I made because of the reasons mentioned above. I also replaced the midi because, although it sounded quite right, it was made from a transcription written in Ab minor (checked this by opening the midi file in Sibelius). I hope everyone is ok with this and if it turns out there are mistakes, we'll fix them. I'll probably start working on a paragraph about reconstructing the score in the morning. --Kuhaa 01:47, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I wrote a paragraph about the reconstruction process. I wrote it from my own point of view (in other words, how I approached and observed the transcription process. Mr. Anon also got it right and it's obvious we're not the only ones, there were many people working on it all around the web. No names mentioned though so it should be fine) since I think it explains quite well how the English speaking community worked on it, and what mistakes were made during the process. It's also my version of the transcription we currently have here so I think it's not entirely wrong to explain how that version came to be. I hope you're ok with the text, I'll probably see if I can structure it better. If anyone feels like reviewing the English in the paragraph (and the whole page), please do. I think I might have misused some musical terminology since I'm not used to writing about these things in English. :E --Kuhaa 18:20, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Sayaka transformation scene notes (BD)

According to Nicovideo, the notes in BD version of Sayaka transformation scene seems to be Tekla Bądarzewska-Baranowska's Maiden's Prayer. Not sure where this fits, but put it here for the time being. --0x99 20:28, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

what do we know about the Maiden's Prayer or any connection to Faust? I know nothing of music history. The only connection I can think right now it this: Kyouko praying --Mutopis 07:32, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Lyrics are here [1]. References to notes with Sayaka has to do with Kyousuke Kamijou. In this case, it's her prayer for him to get better and if this is in fact the song, a foreshadowing of her tragic end with this wish. --randomanon 11:29, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Ev'ry word revealed her empty broken heart
Broken by fate that holds them so far apart
Lonely there she kneels and tells the stars above
In her arms he belongs, in her heart is a song
An undying song of love.

Damn, that pretty much describes Sayaka/Oktavia --Mutopis 11:47, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
