    Entry Of The Gladiator - CMB Rendering

    This well known march by F u c i k, "Entry Of The Gladiator" has never sounded better than in its Concert/Marching Band setting. This particular arrangement was arranged by Nigel Horne (http://www.bandsman.co.uk) of the UK for a small ensemble as might be found in a circus or small performance venue. The result is a delightful barrel-organ effect.

    I rendered this using Finale 2006 and the new Concert/Marching Band. The notation instruments are as follows;

    Picc Solo 1
    Bb Clarinet Solo 1
    Bb Clarinet Solo 2
    Bass Clarinet Solo 1
    Alto Sax Solo 1
    Tenor Sax Solo 1
    Trumpet Group 1 KSM
    Trumpet Group 2 KSM
    French Horn Solo 1 KSM
    Euphonium Solo 1

    Very, very clever orchestrative work in this -- the effect of
    a barrel organ is right on the mark. Well done! Really a
    delightful arrangement of this.

    Best,

    Oh it looks like it's fixed now... he really should change his name... or maybe should sue us for abusing his name with tilde characters.

    Thanks David I agree it is great piece and Mr. Horne did a very cleaver arrangement of it.

    Oh yes the "~~~ik" was an attempt by the filter to clean up F u c i k.

    Barrel Organ indeed! - I love circus music and of course this is The classic Circus theme, so I loved hearing it again.

    You swear there isn't an accordion in there? -

    I enjoyed the listen, Gary, but wouldn't have recognized this as being played by CoMB. It's been notation-quantized, like Barrel Organ music, so there isn't a live small ensemble illusion. It Did make for a wierd kind of hybrid sound between a small Organ and a vaguely wind-instrumentish kind of sound - but wow - it mostly sounded like--well, a Barrel Organ.

    HUmmm, interesting.

    Cool, when I was young I remember going to the circus and hearing this. I never knew its correct name, so that helps as well. Great rendering

    Glad that you enjoy this type of music Randy. Nope no accordian. It is the choice of instruements. The piccolo gives it very interesting harmonics against the reedy sounds of the saxes and clarinets.

    It certainly is CMB, and no, the notation software does not quantitze the sounds. As I understand it the notation software only interpretes the score and sends control commands to the sound card driver. The downloaded sounds stored in memory are reproduced there. I suggest that it is more like the particular mix of instruments selected that gives it the barrel-organ sound. Even a simple change such as using flute vs piccolo makes a big difference in the resulting output. I originally produced this using the GPO instruments and the result is very different. Same notation software, same scored work, different library...but very different sound.

    Hi Gary,

    This is really well done! Very clever achievement getting that perfect "circus sound"!

    And, man... it DOES bring back memories, playing in the B&B Circus band when it came through San Diego each summer (a torture gig ).

    Thanks for showing us what an outstanding job CMB is capable of (in your more than capable hands!).

    Danny
