Not done yet... I haven't even handed in my clicks! Santa Ana got me sick, too...Hey, does anyone remember what clarinet we are supposed to write for? In G? In Ab? I haven't the slightest idea (and would very much like to avoid any transposition problems such as my faux-pas with the Horn in Orchestration class)...Joe, I have a feeling that cheese is not so bad for this particular piece. Just don't forget the strawberry part, which I think this film's makers would appreciate. It rings of "chihuahua".
Hmm, I'll be giving you some stiff competition re: cheese tomorrow Joe. But let's be honest, the whole movie premise reaks of muenster and camembert anyways...Renata, we're writing for B-flat clarinet, so you can keep the score itself at concert pitch (all instruments in the same key) but for the clarinetist's individual part everything should be written a whole step higher.How come I'm not getting an e-mail when you create a new post, Joe, but only when someone responds to one?
Thanks Aaron.By the way, is there such a thing as a clarinet in Ab or one in G? Sibelius seems to think they exist, but Thom does not... hmm.By the way, Joe, I don't get emails with your posts anymore either. I only find them when I access the blog.Good luck to you all tomorrow!
How did everyone do? I gave conducting a shot but totally got lost and gave it to Thom after the first round. The music came out pretty good though!
I think it went pretty well; it will be interesting to hear it all mixed and mastered and played against the film. Renata had a nice samba thing happening which she let me be a small part of :) Do you suppose we'll really watch and critique all 24 of them next week?
I didn't get to hear more than a couple of people's work (I was late), but mine went almost smoothly... Aaron saved the day! I inexplicably didn't realize there was only one percussionist for all the percussion instruments mentioned, so I wrote a shaker line throughout the piece, and many vibes and xylophone lines, and if it weren't for Aaron the shaker line would have been lost.Thanks again Aaron!I think Thom will characteristically plough through all 24 pieces in 3 hours. I hope we get to hear a good amount of criticism to get the best out of the class.
