I've established the foundation of the entire Symphony project! With the exception of additional insturmentation of the final movement, the songs are realized. It shall be called "Allison & Victoria". Sort of a jab at Ravel's Daphnis et Chole with the namesake, but the music's much more original.
The reason behind this is because of two colleuges of mine. As much as I've tried not too, I developed love feelings for both of them. This Symphony's meant to take the place of any amount of physical affection I could ever give them. Hugs and kisses last only a minute, but a symphony lasts a lifetime.
The remaining steps that stand between my hard drive and this Symphony's birth are...
- Proofread the notation: Since a lot of the music contained within the symphony's older material, the sheet music isn't really notated properly for human performance. For example, dynamics are label p instead p, and certain playing techniques needed must be labeled in correctly. Also, I've included Alto flute into the symphony, an instrument not covered on Sibelius's, my score writing software, initial instrument line up. Therefore, I must manually transpose the part score for that instrument if I wish for that part to be legible to the alto flutist.
- Listen in for details: Now that I'm no longer shackled by the thought of what instruments to put in, I can simply focus on the music and listen closely. There are instrumentation and osstinato that I know should be there but haven't quite gotten too, so I'll be doing that for probably a week.
- Publish the audio: Once I've decided the music is as good as can be, I'll publish the audio on Bandcamp, YouTube, and here. I'll upload the music as singles here on Newgrounds abd Bandcamp. and get rid of those ugly "demo tracks" that I've published recently. I'll upload the symphony on YouTube as an album; perhaps as a score reading video too.
- Complete/Publish the Standard Notation: After the audio's published, I'll include in the sheet music things like a title page and details on instrumentation. That way, this symphony can really be stage ready.
Personally, I'm looking forward to sharing the symphony with my family and friends. A few of them will recieve a hard copy of the MIDI and the standard notation. That way, Ali and Tori can share with their entorouge and have a good memory and maybe some fuzzy feelings, as in "Wow, someone wrote a god-damned symphony in my name!". Even if after finishing this it's reception's nil, I'll live and die happily knowing I created something appreciable in my life. It's not revolutionary, it's not epic, nor very catchy for the mainstream listener, but it's mine.
Thanks for reading; The real challenge will be trying to find an orchestra willing to play this live.
