    Talking Fair Ground Tune

    Hey,
    I have'nt posted in a while so i'm just posting a piece i arranged from an old midi file i found on my computer.(Link at bottom)
    I dont know the name of this piece so its simply called FAIR GROUND TUNE.
    It originaly was written for a 13 piece band including woodwinds, brass, percussion and so on.
    It's arranged for French Horn(Solo1), Tenor Trombone(Solo) and Tuba(Solo2)
    using GPO.
    This is only one movement for the set of three i arranged using this small brass ensemble.
    Hope you enjoy, Comments welcome good or bad.

    I would like to listen to your music but I don't want to "sign up" to do so. Can you provide us with a direct link without having to go through this process? The more places I leave my email address the more SPAM I receive.

    Hiya, Dan

    It's been a Long time since you've posted music - Glad to see something up here again from you.

    And, good move to provide this through Sound Click - keeps your listeners happier.

    I wasn't sure if I understood what you meant in your post. This is your 3 piece arrangement of a MIDI file you found online? - I think that's what you meant-? I mean, as opposed to an original composition of yours?

    Like Darwin's current Ragtime piece here in The Listening Room, this is a sweet tribute to the waning days of summer. Brass band in the Gazebo - can't get much more nostalgic and smile-worthy than that.

    And the music gives the distinct impression of coming across to us from yesteryear - it's so calm and placid. I think that was the effect you were after? The volume dynamics are narrow, with a pronounced amount of restraint. I kept thinking it was going to get amped up, but the brief piece went pleasantly on its even-keel throughout - and that's OK too.

    I want some cotton candy now.

    Hey randy,
    thanks for your comments!
    it was only a quick piece for fun, ive been bussy at the moment practacing for a upcoming concert.
    Soon i will be re-recording this piece using the new concert band library then i'll look at the dynamics and probably add a part for the Solo Cornet or a baritone or something.
    I'll possibly be adding a percussion part as well to get the overall beat that the original had.
    I'm happy with the result at the moment because it was only a rainy afternoon project (England=Can't get a descent bit of sun)
    Thanks for your comments hopefuly my copy of the new library should be here soon!!
