Here’s a quick peek at what my life has been for the whole week past:
Having made marching band arrangments for “See You Tomorrow” and “Test Drive”, I decided to take it a step further with a full orchestral arrangment of “Romantic Flight”, to test the limits of my ears. It’s actually more exhausive than I expected, since I need to blast the music over and over at maximum volume in order to pick out every instrumental detail. I’ve been working on alternate days so to make sure I don’t go deaf. Anyways, I’m quite happy with how it’s turned out so far. The screenshot above shows the finished woodwind section at the climatic tutti.
The completed score will be used to make more precise arrangements for piano and (possibly) ensembles.
To sum it up: I haven’t forgotten about the project and “Romantic Flight” is definitely on its way!
p.s. For your amusement: I’m listening to Beethoven’s seventh on the radio right now and I’ve worked my ears to the extent that I can pick out four to five parts simultaneously. This is scary…
