So, I haven't posted any original material since liftoff, sometime in April I believe. However, I have been busy in Finale, writing a 40 minute Lord of the Rings tribute suite for the advanced wind band, with optional choir, which I am very proud of. Would anyone actually listen to it if I went to the trouble of compiling it, exporting to musescore, uploading it, then making a videoscore? My last piece got two comments XD
Hi. I have been looking for a while to write a band piece. Somewhere around the 7-9 minute range. I have been messing around and I liked a few of the small pieces I wrote. My biggest issue is just starting out the piece. If I would like a more upbeat piece, should I start with a hit or fanfare? If I want a somber piece, how would I go about that. I am just unsure for the first few measures. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
