It would mean a lot if you guys would check out and listen to a marching band show I arranged. Any feedback is welcome! The title of the show is "Off One's Rocker" and the inspiration for it came from the 2018 production of the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, "On Madness and Creativity." This three movement production includes repertoire such as Bolero by Maurice Ravel, Asphalt Cocktail by John Mackey, as well as many other pieces! Hope you guys enjoy!
I want to start a new marching band project and cant think of any show concepts. Please leave your suggestions in comments i would love to have source music to arrange.
I am composing a marching band show just for fun and need help with the percussion parts. I am struggling. I am a baritone player so i have no idea how to write for percussion/ drumline.
Note: The weird 32nd notes on the rail arent supposed to be played that way its written like that to sound like a susspended cymbal roll. Thanks
Here is the link:
This is still a work in progress. Please leave critiques/ and suggestions for percussion.
If I may, I would like to suggest a contest: Find the worst soundfont you can (MuseScore 1 is acceptable if you don't want to download a new one - just use oboe, accordion, or another really bad-sounding instrument soundfont), then write a short song for it and see if you can make it sound good! It can be for any instrument.
The idea is credit of Benjamin Basford (https://musescore.com/basfordmedia - discussion here: https://musescore.com/basfordmedia/moriartys-grip#comment-1049596). The deadline is August 9th, so you have a full month to do it. The judges (me and whoever else would like to be one) can enter but may not judge themselves.
This music music has a sense of tragedy with romanticism and a bit of modernism accents.
Of course you will hear one of the most popular classical music progressions (baroque epochs progressions of fifth) but i wanted to do my own version of that progression. Maybe you can relate my piece with someone others... leave your comment i would like to know what others think...
this is the best form of my mary had a little lamb parody (it sounds dumb, but it actually sis one of my better pieces)
Check it out!
This is a mary had a little lamb inspired piece for pep band. It is not as dumb as it sounds, trust me
