I wasn't sure where to post this, but i guess the listening area would be where composers and arrangers most likely would read/post threads. I have a few projects going on:
1) I have about 12 pop songs. They're just stereo audio tracks. I would like for an arranger write a score based on these tracks. These tracks in general include Drum set, percussion, bass, guitar, keyboard,piano, strings, brass,a few with flute and oboe and such....
Not all are busy tracks, but at the same time i don't want to have the oboe dude to sit there half of the concert for example. So if possible, i would like to have those instruments to do something as well..In brief, you would have to write down everything you hear, and then, make the arrangements work for these instruments. I would like some instruments to be in every songs such as the piano, guitar, strings and brass. I don't need the score for percussion, and drums...but definitely a chord chart for the guitar...Basically, you would have to lift the score off of a recording and make it work for the instrumentation mentioned above. It must be notated in Finale, and i would like the conductor score as well as the parts.
2) projcect number 2!
It's also some other pop songs, but their arrangment is awefully weak. So there's really nothing usefull exept some phrases here and there. I guess for those i would need a brand new arrangement. This one is also a combination of drum set,guitar...and string/brass section.
3) Project number 3:
I have some naked melodies with no arrangement at all. They're some praise songs. ( most of them follow the AB A'B A''B pattern and go anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes)
And in general, i would like to meet people who are familiar with writing for orchestra.
Arrangemetns like this really gets my attention:
This type of arrangements is what i'm looking for. A combination of pop oriented instruments and orchestral . I listened to many pieces posted on here, but most of them would suit video games or films..etc. I don't want crazy pads with massive effects, ..stylus, omnisphere lead sounds..etc...just the old fasion pop/orchestral writing it's what i need.If you have samples of your work, please send me a link to check them out... I would also like to know how much you charge for doing project number 1 and 2???..thanks
