I'm thinking about using the name "Rose Garden" for a musical project, and even notwithstanding any trademark issues, I figure I may as well ask to see how Rosegarden devs feel.
I've been using Rosegarden over the past three years for a series of chamber strings concerts with songwriters. I pull in audio from the songwriters and use Rosegarden to compose string parts for the chamber string ensemble to accompany these songwriters live at the University of Toronto in an annual concert, an aside for the chamber strings group. I'm planning on breaking this pops concerts out beyond the university into a dedicated project, a strings collective. I've been toying around with some names, and the Rose Garden Strings Collective is towards the top of my list right now, as a subtle tribute to the fantastic software that's so essential to my work, as well as having some other important meanings for me.
It's not at all a software project, but it is a music project. We'd be starting in Toronto, Canada, but we would have ambitions for a web presence.
"Rose garden" is a pretty generic term, but I wouldn't want to cause any confusion. Do you think the "Rose Garden Strings Collective" would be stepping on the toes of the Rosegarden project?
ps I'm not subscribed to the list, so reply-all or reply-sender would be appreciated -- thanks.
