Automated transcript

Archive version of my Twitch stream from May 4, 2021. Bumper economy-size stream, well over six hours of composing an organ waltz with Lilypond, starting from scratch. Commentary on Catholic granny organs; the Glade Creek Grist Mill; the history and structure of waltzes (originally the dance form of rebellious teenagers!); theory of tonal harmony; call and response; writing a basic chord progression; writing melodies; first and second endings; a break for dinner; Okular's kinetic scrolling; writing a transition; the need to face up to fractions; and writing an intro.
