Blues_in_G-minor

Filed under: brass,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,woodwind — steve @ 1:48 pm

A 12 bar pattern I wrote when I was about 26 or so for our multi-instrumentalist vocalist/sax/guitar/flute player in the Blues Club, Mr Damon Stone. Was written for a sax solo however I didn’t enjoy playing guitar solo over it myself – que sera, sera…

Oh Yeah

Filed under: brass,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,vocals — steve @ 2:24 pm

Hmmm, don’t know about this one – started to come together then it didn’t and after a couple of days working on it I was over it in the end. Used up pretty much all the vocal sounds from the Creative/E-MU soundfonts collection I have hence more “Oh Yeah”s. Jamstix drums, bass, guitar and brass from Independence 1.5 – very little time put into the brass though as I just wanted this one to end… has its moments – perhaps incorporating obvious African male vocal sounds with American gospel/choir sounds with a 1950′s pop middle bit is not an ideal outcome… ;)

Rectification

Filed under: ambient,brass,Composition,drums & bass — steve @ 10:49 am

No matter how hard you fight it resistence is futlie – you will be rectified. “Vox Gothic” from Creative/E-MU soundfont; tubular bells from Garritan Personal Orchestra; [edited] drums from Jamstix; and, vibraphone, sax and bass from Independence 1.5…

The Hunt

Filed under: brass,Composition,orchestral,strings,woodwind — steve @ 4:06 pm

An orchestral arrangement inspired by going to the Vienna Pops Concert on New Year’s Eve – though inspired by orchestral arrangements than rather what they played on the night – I just wanted to do an orchestral piece and this is what came out of. A sort of question/answer piece – imagine the hunting party chasing a fox who is wise to their machinations – so it is a happy hunt as no animals get injured during the chase – and no animals were injured during the making of this production!

Shirtless theme

Filed under: brass,Composition,drums & bass,piano — steve @ 4:11 pm

I have no idea what “Shirtless” is or will be – I assume it is a short film – however a friend, geoffrey.com.au/, who has entry level knowledge of music, although who has found a new passion to create music for his films, gave me a MIDI file of scratchings of some theme music. I really liked some of the ideas he had, (I hadn’t heard his version – just played the MIDI file) so I arranged the ideas, wrote bass and sax lines and then let Jamstix do its work (along with some editing)… Instruments from Independence 1.5 as well as the previously mentioned Jamstix… You can hear Ed’s original version here.

blah blah blah blah

Filed under: brass,drums & bass,guitar — steve @ 11:59 am

Something I was toying around with before purchasing Garritan Personal Orchestra and Independence 1.5. Used a combination of sound fonts, free VST instruments and real drum loops. The real drum loops needed a lot of editing to get the timing right. I re-vamped the piece later with the Garritan VST as well as overlaying Jamstix drum VST over the drum loops. As a result it it is a bit of a “dog’s breakfast” sound wise
