Recently we conducted a fun experiment. We asked forum members to provide their interpretations on Bach's Air on a G String and about 20 versions were posted! http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...802#post180802 It was interesting to hear how various orchestral elements, instrumentation and styles could make such a difference with the same work. This exercise showed us a great deal and broadened the way we looked at a piece of music.
Let's do this again - This time with Pachelbel's Canon!
This can be a great learning exercise. It's easy enough for those getting started and solid enough to take artistic liberties. Feel free to do a traditional version, or raggae, hip hop, Miles Davis version, or other interesting version.
Here's a MIDI file to get started with:
Looking forward to hearing your interpretations.
(PS Thanks to Nicole for providing the MIDI file )
