Artcat's Piano Arrangements - First Submission!
« on: May 31, 2018, 02:54:59 AM »

Hey guys! I'm artcat, and I'm in the process of making my first piano arrangement to submit to the site, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to look it over just to make sure it's in good shape before I submit it.

I arranged "Tower of Spirits Staircase" from Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Here's a video, and my arrangement:



My concerns:
  • I'm fairly certain that the song is in G minor, but the brass in the end suggests that it may be in Eb Lydian, however those are the same key signature. It's probably okay to write it in two flats, and I can't really think of any other way to do it.
  • I feel that it is in 3/4, although part of the melody makes me feel it is in 6/4 because there isn't quite as much emphasis on every other measure in the marimba/thumb piano thingy part. Thoughts?
  • In the end, there are so many parts going on, so I basically combined the brass with the vocals, but there could be a better way to do it.

The music has so many layers that I had trouble combining them at the end, but I did the best that I could while still having the piece be playable. I would appreciate any comments you guys have before I submit it. Thanks! Hope to get to arranging more for the site!

Now, I'm not the most versed in this kinda stuff, but I believe the song is in 6/8. Don't take my word for it, it just seems like that to me. For the key sig, if they're written the same way, then you're cool with it the way it is. I can't really help with the last thing, but there are other people around that might be willing to put in their two cents. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong about the time sig, I don't wanna lead this person astray.) It's always nice to see a new arranger, and I wish you luck! (From what I did listen to, it sounds really good for your first. And it looks very neat. It's rare to see newcomers have such organized sheets. I think.)

The drum line is a very clear 6/8, so I'd agree with THC on that. Can't comment on notes because I'm about to go to bed.

Yeah, now that I listen to the drum part, I can hear how it emphasizes 1 and 4, so it's in 6/8.

Thanks for the advice - I'm glad my sheets look well-formatted. I spent a lot of time on it  ;D

I'll probably keep this up for a day or so before I submit it through the system in case anyone else has comments. Thanks again!
