Olimar12345's Big Band Arrangements
« on: May 02, 2017, 06:00:12 AM »

Here's where I'll be posting various big band arrangements of mine that get the luxury of getting a performance. All recordings are done by the HCC Monday Night Big Band, under the direction of Woody Witt.

Tonight we had a concert that premiered three of my arrangements. The first was an arrangement of the theme from Jubilife City from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions.

Not from a video game, but for Steven Universe followers, we also performed my arrangement of Love Like You:

Update: I forgot about this arrangement. I finished it back in January and the band read it, but it ultimately didn't get a second read (rip). Some of you guys here might get a kick out of it though lol:

Below is the Finale-generated sound output for an arrangement of "Unfinished Business" (from Skullgirls) that I wrote back in 2014. I transcribed it and rearranged it for a big band featuring the saxophone section.

Just got the recordings back from our big band concert on 12/4/17, where we played my arrangement of "White" from Cave Story. It turned out alright:

Here's the recording of my latest VGM big band arrangement, "Battle Against A Weird Opponent" from EarthBound. Recorded on 3/3/18

These are both fantastic! Yes, I'm very interested in hearing the 3rd one. Also do you have scores of these available? If not, that's fine, just wondering.

Thanks you guys, I appreciate it. All tunes are performed by the HCC Monday Night Big Band, under the direction of Woody Witt.

The third piece of mine that was performed is really special. Titled "Emotion Sickness," it is a big band arrangement of the opening track from the album "Ghosts" by Joe LoCascio. We were lucky enough to have Joe LoCascio come in and play on it (piano).

Brilliant stuff! :) Of course the only one I can properly appreciate is the Jubilife City haha, but I really enjoy your writing. The drum set writing is especially well done, I think that part alone can direct the entire band.

Oh, and I hear excellent horn/trombone solos in the foreground ;)

Thank you, Daj  :) Although, the chart/writing cannot be given the praise for the drum set performance. Credit must be given to our fantastic plerformers, especially in the rhythm section where typically the least amount of writing exists! xD

Thanks, JD. Sure, I'll post it. Listening to how rough/unbalanced that raw version was made me want to take it  down, so I'll just post the complete one whenever it's posted.

Here's an older one that never got a performance (though we did read it a couple times). Below is the Finale-generated sound output for an arrangement of "Unfinished Business" (from Skullgirls) that I wrote back in 2014. I transcribed it and rearranged it for a big band featuring the saxophone section.

So this is the latest thing I've completed for big band: it's an arrangement of the secret hidden track "White" (or King's theme) from Cave Story. Below is the computer generated sound output, so you'll have to use your imagination for a lot of it. I was fortunate to have this piece read and rehearsed tonight and with a few small changes it works well.
