When We Were Young (Adele) [Duet]

3 parts6 pages01:3616 days ago248 views
Oboe(2), Piano
Vocal duet with piano accompaniment of When We Were Young by Adele.

This vocal duet of Adele's popular song When We Were Young is a perfect addition to any talent show or open mic night. Put two of your most soulful, emotional singers to the task of singing this piece, and audience members will be blown away! Or just have some fun jamming out around the piano with this emotion-filled tune!

I arranged this for two of my fellow choir members towards the end senior year in high school, but they didn't end up actually using it, so it was just abandoned. I found it again while messing around one day and decided to edit it up and go ahead and publish it!

After a solid day's work (about six hours), I've finally finished orchestrating Selcuk Bor's "Rage of the Champions", as seen in Castle Crasher and a number of Flash games. As far as I can tell, this orchestration is almost completely accurate, and is ready for use in most standard orchestras, though many instruments (especially winds) do not play.

A few notes about this orchestration, and the MuseScore file:
- To better achieve the recording's sound, the snare should be played with brushes, or on another instrument that best sounds light but still have edge.
- There is one wood block used. The best one would be a very small one (i.e., the one with the highest pitch), or alternatively use a set of sticks from the Chinese tanggu or zhanggu instruments. It is also important to note that the MuseScore playback completely covers this part up (as well as the toms part). I highly recommend separating the score into the percussion parts to really hear that groove, because, honestly, it's really quite cool.
- There are two endings, but you can repeat the piece however many times you feel like playing.
- Near the end, the strings split into harmonies. I did NOT write separate parts for each stringed instrument, so it may be a little cluttered to read.
- If you don't have a bass trombone, a tuba would be a decent substitute, but note that the piece will not have the edge it was written with.

That's about it. If you have any questions, suggestions, or criticisms, feel free to let me know.

My next project is "Four Brave Champions".

For the love of you

Original composition. I was bored and started to make what sounded pretty in each measure, and it seemed to have all worked together cohesively if I do say so myself. Hopefully you enjoy this.

Hey guys! I recently have seen Mary Poppins Returns at the theaters. It is a wonderful movie with great music! My love of the music in that film is so great that I decided I would make an orchestral suite consisting of some of the key songs in the film. I am far from finished.

This suite will include:

-Mary Poppins Theme / Can you Imagine That
-Lovely London Sky
-The Place Where the Lost Things Go
-The Royal Doulton Music Hall
-Lovely London Sky (Reprise) / Mary Poppins Theme (Reprise)

Note: I am attempting to create this score by solely writing what I hear. This is one of the first times I have done this. Feel free to point out any mistakes or anything that may be missing. Enjoy!

Concert(???) band work in progress (idk if this should be classified as concert band or not help).

Wow! This is pretty different from the usual stuff I post on here, isn't it? I mean, for starters, it's a work in progress, which I never usually post, and sweet Gsus, look at the instrument count!

I have never worked on any really big ensemble pieces like this before, so please be kind! As this is a work in progress and I'm pretty much ad-libbing things, I hoped that publishing what I have so far would be a good way to ask for advice from band peeps and other composers to see what they think of it so far. I'm also hoping it'll prove to be motivation to keep me writing this (since I accidentally forgot it existed for like a semester...whoops).

The current plan: Next comes a more minor-y section that I have vague ideas for, and I'm not too sure what will come after that, but I do have the ending of the piece fairly fleshed-out. Any other ideas would be much welcomed, though! (Name ideas would also be much welcomed.)

Note: As this is a WIP project, I'm not really worrying about formatting right now, so there are pretty much no rehearsal markings and stuff. Also, there are some empty staves (i.e. oboe and unpitched percussion rip). I will add all of that stuff in later. I'm also not worrying about going soundfonting at this point, but here's slightly better audio if you really want it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1soQrVrkQSbFqVy3yY6V1q_U1o5U0-jlP/view?usp=sharing

This is just a work in progress at the moment, so please do not perform this song. Do not take, share, or post this audio or sheet music anywhere else.

Enjoy! :)

It's Okay (Fia Goudes) [Tidbits]

4 parts2 pages00:45a month ago172 views
Piano(4)
A cappella original tidbit titled It's Okay.

I decided that I liked what I did with "They Say" (if you haven't heard that yet, check it out! it's linked in the same sets as this one), so I decided to do another!

This short is based off of a little mantra I came up with a while back. It was something I intended to use as a way to try and stay upbeat even during darker times, but it never stuck. I came across a little doodle I made of it over the holidays while looking through old papers, and I decided to try once more to get it stick. This time, I figured that maybe music would help it stick in my head more easily! And thus, this happened. :)

It's a fairly simplistic tune and arrangement, since the melody is supposed to be easily remembered and sung for pretty much anyone. Vocals are a little shaky, but they're pretty okay for now haha xD

[Note: Can we just have a moment of appreciation for my mezzo-soprano vocal chords for being able to hum that high F? Lord only knows how that even managed to happen xD]

From "Tidbits," the album that just might be. Please do not perform this song. Do not take, share, or post this audio or sheet music anywhere else.

The Smile of a Child (Criminal Minds) [Solo Piano]

1 part4 pages02:162 months ago240 views
Piano
Piano arrangement of The Smile of a Child by Paul Reeves, well-known for appearing in Coda, episode sixteen of season six of Criminal Minds.

I've been dead for a while on here, and I apologize for that! I've been distracted by a lot of things, and I haven't been able to connect my laptop to wifi for days, since I don't have wifi at my house, so I've physically had no way to post anything on MS until today. :\

This piece is transcribed as exactly as possible from the Criminal Minds adaptation of it (plus a bit of an ad-libbed ending, since in the episode there was never any clear end). I was watching a marathon of the show, and saw this episode, heard this song, and fell in love with it. Even though it's so simplistic, I wanted to share it with you guys!

Note: The default audio is a version I made plus some of the other instruments and sound affects I heard in the Criminal Minds adaptation. I was messing around with soundfonts and wanted to give it a try. Plus, I may record myself playing this and make that audio source available here as well. :)

*

NO MONEY IS BEING MADE OFF OF THIS. I DO NOT OWN BROTHERS AND HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH ROAD HAWGS OR CRIMINAL MINDS.

I would love it if you would like to perform my arrangement. Please contact me first, though! You can contact me through MuseScore, email, Facebook, YouTube, or SoundCloud. I would also love it if you could send me a video of the final performance.

Enjoy! :)

I had a dream last night - Ich hab die Nacht geträumet

11 parts44 pages04:312 months ago24 views
Piccolo, Piano(2), Bass(3), Percussion(3), Brass Ensemble, Strings
Ok, so my music teacher in 7th and 8th grade practiced this song with the school choire over and over again to a point where everybody hated it and we never actually performed it anywhere. It's a boring song and the lyrics are just... bleh. It's about a woman having a dream where she sees vague symbols that leave her to the conclusion she lost her husband in war or something...
I found the piece in an old songbook I recently re-discovered and wanted to cover it in a way I knew my teacher would never like it or listen to it, so made it into an 80s-Synthi-ish Song.

In case you want to listen to what the song would originally sound like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB3pdG6L3T8

Rain

1 part4 pages04:292 months ago166 views
Piano
Op. 8, Nocturne no. 2 ("Rain"). Written for the second Praey for the Gods gift exchange, this is almost a complete departure from the musical style I normally find myself attracted to. It's in some kind of weird, morphed arch form where all the thematic material basically appears...everywhere.

The initial working title was "Serene", after the idea of a forest after a rainstorm where everything glitters, but I found that I was really seeing the actual rain itself in the sort of actual precipitation and the way animals try to scurry out of the way; hence the name and the really active middle section. For some reason, I'm also envisioning rainfall at night - perhaps it's the clouds covering the sun? There are definitely some quartic and modern influences - a lot of Impressionistic and modal stuff. I'm not 100% convinced that I really like it, though. There are some nice moments here and there, and I do believe the piece is fairly cohesive, but for some reason I'm just not QUITE satisfied with it. I think perhaps everything happens too quickly. Someday I might come back and rework everything into a longer piece, because this is certainly a story I could take more time to tell.

Prelude for organ and harpsichord

2 parts2 pages00:363 months ago86 views
Harpsichord, Organ
Op. 7, Prelude for organ and harpsichord.

I'm currently in a class about building musical instruments. My group is building an organ, while my friend's group is building a harpsichord. This was a small piece I wrote on the bus, ideally to perform with our build instruments. Ultimately we did not end up playing it, because both of our instruments have an octave at max.

That said, it's a cute piece, coming in at under 20 measures. Given that many of my pieces are enormous, it's a nice change of pace.

As for why C major, well I was going to write it in such a way that was easy to read. Whether or not our instruments are actually in C is a different question; if necessary I could have changed the pitch. Now that I know this piece won't be played, though, I'm actually pretty happy at leaving it in C. It's kind of Classical-y, though I dunno, maybe the instrumentation is more Baroque.

Trepidation (Original) [Solo Piano]

1 part2 pages01:343 months ago310 views
Piano
Solo piano composition titled Trepidation.

This would probably be a good piece for a late beginner to early intermediate pianist (it's fairly simplistic, but there are a few areas that might be a bit difficult for beginners),

This isn't one of my better works, but it has grown on me, nevertheless. This piece was born out of me trying to improv something on the piano, and since I'm not too great at improv, the piece that was born out of my sucky improv isn't too great, either. But hey! It's a start, and it's not the most horrible piece of garbage in existence, so I'll take it. xD

Now, I've noticed something. I've reached two hundred followers! :O That is pretty freaking amazing, and I love you all so much for helping me reach this mile marker! And yes, there is a two hundred follower special in the works.... ;)

(Note: I am aware that there is a brief section that sounds more like 6/8 than 3/4 at the end, but since I intended this to be playable for lower level pianists, I didn't want to freak anyone out by changing the time signature for a couple measures and then changing it back.)

I had very much fun writing this, hopefully you like it.
I'd like to get some feedback, especially whether this score is playable or not since I don't play paino.

(And yes, I used "Entry of the Gladiators" at one point, just kinda ran with it)

CoOrchestral (Original Collab w/ SoysauceK!) [Orchestra]

[REVISED] Composition for a little baby orchestra. This was a collaboration with SoysauceK for a competition! Now with the official final audio!

I created the basis for this piece - the piano bit. SoysauceK did the cool bit and overlaid all the orchestral parts. Everyone should go follow them - they're super cool and super talented!

Anyways, the only sheet music I have as an mscz file or whatever is the piano sheet music, so that's what I'm posting here (also so people don't steal it).

Please do not perform this composition. (It's meant more to be heard than to be played.) Do not take, share, or post this audio or sheet music anywhere else.

Echo (Original) [Solo Voice]

2 parts6 pages03:054 months ago169 views
Oboe, Piano
Composition for solo voice. Art song for a mezzo soprano (or even a soprano, if they can hit the lower notes or want to transpose it up a whole step). Composed for my Composition Skills class. Public domain poem by Christina Rossetti.

This is actually a piece that I've had done since the start of the school year, but I have yet to post it until now for...reasons (mostly me wanting to revise it a bit, but also some other stuff). It's actually the first piece that I composed for my composition class here in university! Yeah!! Whoop whoop!

You will hear Lydian mode in this. It is pretty much entirely Lydian mode, save for me trying to vaguely imply Locrian and some other funky different stuff in the middle section

Note: This is all within my range as a mezzo soprano. I love to sing this to myself and often get it stuck in my head bc I'm a sucker for Lydian. If anyone were to...hmm, I dunno...suggest that I record live audio of myself singing it...I wouldn't be entirely averse to doing as such. You feel me? ;D *wink wink nudge nudge iF YOU WANT IT JUST ASK*
