Topic: The Banquet

  1. #1

    The Banquet

    I shared this piece in the chat a couple weeks ago... it's a whimsical piece which consists of one melody over and over again with different orchestration. It's meant to be rather ridiculous and was a lot of fun to create. Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy!

    "The Banquet"

    And, of course, the visual experience:

    "serious music" ... as if the rest of us are just kidding

    Nice, very nice!

    I enjoyed your first version in the chat and this result now is great! I can hear between the notes that you have had much fun with different orchestrating... .

    My best, Sean!

    I like your "variations on a theme", Lad. Very entertaining and it never got boring. Clever writing. Thanks for posting.

    My best,

    Loved it, Sean! This *was* a great deal of fun! The percussion
    licks, especially. Sean, I wouldn't be too quick to marginalize this
    piece -- there's some real ingenuity in this, darned good writing;
    and the rendering is top-drawer. To pull something like this off
    -- repeat the same theme over and over like that -- and keep it
    genuinely interesting? Much applause!

    All my best,

    Oh man, Sean--This is just great. Being a fan of The Big Sound, I especially loved the big, grand, and slightly over-the-top renditions of your happy little theme. Virtuosity in the field of arranging can be such an enthralling thing to get caught up in, and that's what you display here.

    A "banquet" of tasty musical morsels for sure.

    Speaking of displays---I should go do the "visual experience" now. I chose to hear the music by itself first.

    You're awesome Seanster, thanks for the treat.

    Very interesting in that although not considering the “hook” very interesting I felt the need to listen all the way to the end out of curiosity. A very astute piece of work.

    Certainly did Sean! Very entertaining, some great rendering here and an imaginative use of the orchestra. I like the different treatments you gave this along the way in terms of grandeur and tempo.

    I thought this was wonderful Sean! I was captured by your melody and creative variations. How did you do the video part on Youtube? Very interesting and almost hypnotic. Is there some type of software for this?
    Anyway, great work! Both in the forum and on Youtube!

    Like David, I also especially liked the percussive variations. It was fun to listen to.

    I like watching the visuals. I can see them becoming more sophisticated, maybe actual instrument, section icons or such.
