Kevin Callahan is a Seattle-based guitarist, composer and teacher who happens to be a Sibelius user. I’ve communicated a lot with Kevin over the years: he’s a Mac enthusiast, dabbles in software development, and always has interesting ideas about how Sibelius should be developed.
I’ve worked directly with my editor of choice, Sibelius, and sometimes with a guitar (and or cat) on my lap. Sibelius makes it very quick and easy to produce great results and allows me to work fast. For “The Red Fantasy”, I took a different approach: rather than going directly to the score, I sat in front of my Mac and launched Quicktime Pro to video-capture improvisations and record rough ideas, shapes, colors. Sometimes I used PhotoBooth as it can also record audio-video. Later, I’d transcribe what I played, more or less, and rework the ideas into the composition using Sibelius.
Thanks for using Sibelius, Kevin!
