Yes, I had a eureka moment abou the orchestration for Strawberry Bootlaces. So listen... and download.
The conducted click track
If you want to play the orchestra part with the piano track, you can, just take measures 5-12 (the main melody) and play them at half time, so quarters become eighths, and so forth. Do the same with the melody at the end (mm 27 -36). All the other measures are aligned...
Wow. So this awesome.
First, hey Joe. Glad you like the piece. I accept your challenge. And from the looks of things, Day has already uploaded a reading. So, I’ll start working on that straightway. And Day, it’s not merely the mic or music, it’s your superb writing and performance... And the accent :) Can’t wait to hear the next one... can you feel that pressure, isn’t it great. LOL
To everyone else, thanks for the lovely comments. Here’s to life, love and music... live long and prosper... so forth and so one... TotallyJamie, I too could also go for some Strawberry Bootlaces right now... Twizzler’s in America?
...Now about Strawberry Orchestrated.
I listened to Strawberry last night before I went to bed and when I woke up I knew what I wanted to do with the orchestra. This was before I read that Joe want’s it orchestrated. So, I will warn you that the timing is quite different from the piano version. It doesn’t sync to Day’s performance in the same way, as I took the liberty of a conductor, changing the paces to serve the melodies. Besides, I think the piano works best for Day’s monologue anyway, as it doesn’t get in the way. The orchestra version would be in the same movie, but different a scene? I could get it to sync, but it would take some time... maybe I’d thin it out too, so its not as dominant. Thoughts?
Either way, Jo. I haven’t seen the MMM movie. But Imma check out. You wouldn’t happen to have a direct link (I’m still learning to navigate hitrecord.com)?
