If there's already sheet music on the internet (which I'm not aware of) for this, then... Good news, everyone! I will update this post to contain the most recent files.

First 2 measures (preview)

The whole thing (so far)

I know this isn't everything.  If you have any advice on instrumentation, notes, rhythms, I'd like to hear it    smile

Here's the original sound file from the episode:

Hurray now I feel i haven't wasted my time  big grin

The first two measures are indeed for clarinet (which I play in a group) and the rest for oboe.  Also, if you play the first two measures on a B flat clarinet, you have to transpose (C#-> D), I put the music in concert pitch :/

While i improve this one, i was thinking of making sheet music for the entire opera ( http://www.thefryhole.co.uk/sounds/devilshands7.mp3 )
but I have a feeling It isn't specially created for Futurama.  Anyone know what song it is?

To play on B flat clarinet, wouldn't you have to do it up two semi tones (being a clarinetist myself) so it would be C#->D# not C#->D (C#is a horrible key!!!)

Oh my gawd!
I have been looking for this kind of thing!

The picture isn't showing up (because my computer is crap) and parental control stopps me from looking at the links.  Can you email the pictures to me?

If you can, put "Devil's Hands" in the subject.  I am much obliged.

No problem, but I must warn you, I don't think that the sheets are complete yet.

Oops  eek well I believe that C# is the exact same pitch used in the actual episode.  I guess I can verify later.

So.. has anyone noticed something wrong in the music?   cool

I hate the scale that starts on Bb Clarinet's C#. I know it goes a half-step up. I've had band for...four years roughly.

Umm... it doesn't have a key signature? just all accidentals? I don't know if that's what your getting at... but that's something wrong!

Technically, that would be the key of "C" so it's not wrong, it's just inconvenient.

But, accidentals only last untill the end of the measure in whch they appear.

It's not all accidentals: its just the first two bars, like Trombonist said.  Although I agree it's inconvenient, it's not long enough of a tune to make a key signature.  (and I don't want 6 sharps in the key sig)

Updated the sheet music, MUS file, and mp3 output to include a separate staff for the clarinet part.

I feel like putting this behind me and starting something else.  Mass list of all 2 second sentimental music in Futurama, or Jeremy Soule's Guild Wars?

Hehehe I'll get back to futurama someday  smile

You're just all out to get me... that's it isn't it!
(just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!)
Thanks though... I just need someone who can play Oboe, Flute, Alto, violin, Tuba and Tubular bells and we can play it! :P Actually I know an oboist, a flautist and a violinist... just need the others

lol good point: There are way too many parts for such short music to make playing this in a group feasible...

Unless you found some talented players who happened to be futurama fans :/

Or you were paid.
