I just finished a Marching Band show that I got asked to write this year. We decided to do the music from Tim Burton's original Batman film.
Scores aren't readily available for these type of things, so I had to transcribe them by ear. It's good to see that my ear training and dictation skills have not atrophied!!
Anyway, here's the score (PDF file)
Here's the Mp3
I wrote and recorded this using Sibelius 4 with the GPO Crossover Edition. I needed descnt sounding Marching Percussion, so I ran Finale's (Yes, I own both!!) MakeMusic Soundfont with my Soundblaster Audigy 2 soundcard. I wanted to use Sibelius 5, but the good people over there informed me that I missed the free upgrade from 4 to 5 by a week. DOH!!!!
I imported the MP3 into Sonar Home Studio 6XL to Mix and add reverb. As in most high school marching bands, the percussion is obnoxiously loud, but that's the way we like it!!
Anyway, let me know what you think.
