Topic: Some orchestrations test

    Some orchestrations test


    I got a small freelance gig, I'll do short looping menu music for some interactive DVD games for children, based on Disney licenses. Here are 2 short tests I've done with GPO (of course ). One is rather cartoony, trying to get a subtly cartoonish sound. In the other (princess), I'm trying to get this typical "grand romantic waltz" sound, for now I'm just using the strings and the woodwinds. Here's where I am now.
    I'll add some subtle harp motives I think, and maybe some bells or celesta.

    Songs submitted for constructive comments and advice. Thanks.

    Re: Some orchestrations test

    Both compositions are quite good and very appropriate for the subject matter. The Winnie is fun and the round-robin orchetration is lively and interesting. The Princess waltz is perfect for the subject and looks to bloom into something quite beautiful (but I could not hear the accompaniment). So you are definitely on the right track.


    PS But the performances were poor, that comes later?

    Well Ninja, I thought that they were both very good indeed and very realistically produced. I loved the waltz and hope that you post again when you've added the frills. Damn authentic sounding and well produced to these ears......

    ...haha...these people that post humble "tests". I knew that it would be great. I love that princess theme. also the technical realisation /room accoustix/dynamix are felicitous.

    please post more of such stuff.

    what about the midid file for the princess theme? would like to see that.

    thanks for posting.

    It's nice to hear some work in progress.

    I particularly enjoyed the winne theme - don't be afraid to throw in lots of surprises if your aiming for a fun cartoon style. The waltz probably needs to evolve more organically.

    Looking foward to hearing to full versions.
    As in music - so in life!
