Description
Funny coincidence that there are a few other "classical" style pieces up right now. I wanted to see what I could do orchestrally, strictly using Garageband, and here it is. Took me about 15 hours to do for those who are curious.

Round 'Em Up
I like the playfulness and arrangement to this. I feel I was
in some western comedy.

Aaron Copland meets Paul Yoder
Wow. What a great little piece. I kept thinking, while
listening, that this is something my daughter's middle
school band might be able to tackle. It would have to be
orchestrated differently, of course, for wind instruments.
But this is something a young band would love to
perform. A crowd pleaser.

Reminds me of Paul Yoder, a band music composer who
sometimes wrote sound effects (including a real fire
engine) into his pieces.

Aaron Copland meets Paul Yoder
thanks! I'm a big Copland fan and I think I know the other person you are
referring to (Paul Yoder) so thanks again!

a delight!
I really like the playfulness of this! It's inspiring, as I am looking for my Jam Pack 4 copy to arrive from Amazon, so maybe I might tackle something in this vein myself sometime. But maybe I don't want to spend 15 hours....mmmm....can I borrow your composition skills?

Seriously, this is awesome!

Cowpie, me favorite!
heehee, this was very cute and upbeat. But it was also
very well written, orchestrated, and produced. You did a
wonderful job choosing instruments & balancing timbres,
nice and clean sounding! And yes, it is Copeland'esque.
Well done!
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks Drakonis! I really like the reference to Aaron Copland - that's a
compliment and a half; I was thinking the same myself (!)

Makes me want to dance around. It's like a piece of an old
western soundtrack.

you must like henry mancini.
Baby elephant walk, or pink panther inspired?

Very loony tunes-ee. Nice job with the loops.
Sometimes they just click so good don't they?

Fun.

Loops? I rather think not.

Heck, everybody likes Henry Mancini. What I'd say is more along the lines of,
"You must like being so talented." You certainly are, Daphna.

you're right futzpucker...no loops here. Don't really see how one could get
that impression from this piece...hmmm...but anyway, thank you for your
compliment too!

(I did like it, for what that's worth.)

City Slickers...
soundtrack! Seriously, this sounds like it is production ready as a film score. Awesome composition skills on display! Thx D.

Wonderful production!
Was this done using that new Jam Pack? Seems like the
instruments in it are a definite step up from your average
orchestra stock in GB... that is, if it is the Jam Pack, if
not... how DO you do it!? :)

Happy, light hearted piece with that touch of country
humour. I dig it. Does remind me of City Slickers, but then
again, I'm pretty sure that soundtrack would remind of
previous ones as well.

Wonderful production!
thanks packosmokes. What I used was the Silver Orchestral library that you
get with Sibelius. But I'm also looking forward to getting Jampack4 and check
it out.

What a fun composition
Excellent arrangement. I absolutely loved the sounds
(bells and whistle especially) you used and that they were
placed perfectly. This tune put a smile on my face!

You are so talented.
This tune is just terrific.

Every thing is so complete, it is just incredible to me.
You really set the bar high in this composition.

Love it !!

in the great tradition...
...of the film scores of the old westerns from the '40s and
'50s -- with a little bit of Steiner, Newman, Elfman and
Rachel Portman thrown in.

This is a very lighthearted, facile piece with vivid tone
colors, very "American" sounding. You captured the
"south-of-(your)-border" western flavor very well!

I'm very interested in how you worked with the Sibelius
sounds in GarageBand. Did the sounds play through a
MIDI keyboard, into GB? Or did you convert the Sibelius
files into mp3? As a user of Sibelius myself, I am definitely
curious.

Great job on this, daphna!

thanks Cameron! glad you enjoyed it. I am using Kontakt (virtual instrument)
to enter the sounds into Garageband.

blamm said 4865 days ago (February 22nd, 2005)
nice.
I definitely got a Randy Newman "Toy Story" - esque feel from this...but that probably has more to do with the playful subject matter than anything else. Good stuff!

Whimsical and classy
Sounds like something from a musical. "I am Farmer Joe
and my pants are on fire so get the wooden pail and
dance with me!"
