I found some original ragtime orchestra arrangements online, and I have friends who play all of the instruments in them, except for the strings. They're not parts I can just drop, since they provide crucial harmony and to some extent the bass line. Should I throw a bass clarinet or a bassoon in to substitute, or what? HELP!
It seems I'm now advertising another new group. (Well, technically, the group I'm about to advertise isn't "new," but nobody besides me has joined it yet at the time of this writing.) The Musescorer Enochulous has made a group called "Genesis Games Music Team" (link here: https://musescore.com/groups/1892176) and is looking for composers and/or other music department members to help him create and share music for some games he is planning on making. (As far as I can tell, right now he's working on one called ZeroBlade Run.) If you're interested in composing for a video game, I recommend you check it out.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
I have just created a new group called "Community Remix Competitions." In this group, you can enter contests where you have to arrange other Musescorers' music within certain restrictions. If you want to learn more, here's a link: https://musescore.com/groups/remixcomp
Dear friends..a challenge:
I am a Conductor of a School Symphonic Orchestra with choir and Concert Band with Choir...
I was wondering, if we could make a concert with some epic music, with your composers name on it...
I would like to have some peaces done by you (recorded) with credits to all composers...
Concerts will have these pieces:
Danny Elfman 2001 Suite (1 hour music) like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MGndIgeoDI ... but I need the full Suite.
This score will be voted by musician...
The winner will have 500 Euros, and all credits.
Note that: I need scores for Concert Band with Choir and Orchestra with Choir. A lot of low brass is needed.
The composer can add 1 or all the titles above (this is: he can make the arrangement for any or all the peaces) - the price of 500 Euros will be sent for the winner of the best arrangement of all.
Deadline will be April 1st 2017.
Please send the full score in Musescore format by email to: email@example.com along with your email name and Bank Account with IBAN on it.
Please add your name to the score for credits.
You are allow to send video (youtube) to be played and recorded with your music if you wish.
Also, with the email, you need to send authorization to be played with my band and/or Orchestra.
P.S: Please forward this message to all composers groups.
Best of luck to all
I need a arrangements for a West Side Story suit, which I will need by November 2015. I have attached the songs that I will need either snippets or songs in entirety. In order for the story to flow, there will need to be some underscoring with a little dialogue to explain the plot.
Songs to include:
Maria - IN IT’S ENTIRETY
Tonight - IN IT’S ENTIRETY
One Hand, One Heart
Tonight (Quintet) IN IT’S ENTIRETY
I Feel Pretty
A Boy Like That
Hopefully, this will run between 25 and 30 minutes. If there is extra time, feel free to add extra songs.
I will need to have a piano reduction ASAP… and will send you the orchestration as soon as I can get it. This is a tentative one, but it may change.
I've been working on an orchestral arrangement for Touch by Daft Punk for a few months now. It's about halfway done but there's a few parts that I'm struggling with. If anyone is willing to take a look and leave suggestions regarding notation, matching the song, or anything that I messed up on, I would really really appreciate it!
