It's Just About Finished!

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...

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.


Third Movement Complete!

2017-10-07 21:20:47 by Tyguy80s

I've published <a href="https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/769056?updated=1507425032">the third movement here</a>. Essentially, I've orchestrated and revised three previous songs and connected them together to make a symphonic movement. Lots of repeating themes in this one :) The symphony's just one song and some revisions away from being complete. I reckon I'll have the symphony, details, and sheet music, published by the end of the month.

 

To do list

  1. Write one more song, a violin interlude from Emin to Ebmin to establish the new ley signature for the final movement.
  2. Orchestrate "Journey Through a New World"
  3. The final songs, "You WIll Previal" and "Symphony Allegro", are already pretty well orchestrated so those might finish themselves.
  4. Details, details, details. Listen to the entire thing and decide if it's as good as it's getting.
  5. Proofread the sheet music, then publish them on IMSLP.org

So that's where I'm at. Thanks ofr reading.


Learning a New Instrument

2017-10-01 17:03:29 by Tyguy80s

So, I decided to quit being a poser and actually rented the instrument that I write soo much music for. As of right now, I'm squeaking my neighbors into a coma. Maybe in a year or two I'll be able to play my own songs and truly enjoy this instrument.

 

Also, I finished the prelude to the third movement so that's something to look forward to. So currently I'm orchestrating Trust in Despair, then Theme of Distrubed Wind will be the finale to that movement. There's one more movement after that, then some proofreading and I think it'll be done then. At this rate, the symphony might be out for listening in a month.

 

Thanks for listening and reading and appreciating everyone. Have fun!

Second Movement Finished!

2017-09-21 07:40:24 by Tyguy80s

<a href="http://tylerboyle.bandcamp.com/album/symphony-no-1-in-e-allison-victoria-w-i-p">Symphony No. 1 in E: Allison &amp; Victoria W.I.P. by Tyler Boyle</a>

This movement was tedious to arrange. Alas, it's finished and I'm satisified with the result and I'll look forward to uploading it here tonight; night time meaning more views :D Few more tasks await the conclusion of the work I'll list them below

The to do list for the symphony

  1. Write the brass interlude that connects the second and third movements.
  2. Trust in Despair, since it's a chamber work I'll have to orchestrate it.
  3. Remaster remaining tracks: Detail work on the orchestra songs; accompainment on the remaining harp solo. 
  4. Perhaps write one more song.
  5. Proofreed entire score when finished, make sure everything flows.
  6. Divide Sheet music into movements.

Thank y'all so much for following and reading. Have fun!



Power got restore in the matter of days. I got the easy end of it all; I did have to clear out my bank account in order to restock the fridge and pay off some bills, so that was fun. A couple days later. I just finished one of the songs of the second movement; an orchestral version of this song.

 

I'll have to look at the newer Amnesia, Love & Anguish after the rest of the symphony is finished. I feel that song came from the heart, and requires extra attention; something that needs to be looked at when I'm not in "grr... move on to the next song already!" mode. Anywho, I'll be able to post a true second movement preview within a week if not less.

 

I've decided to add a couple more songs, Trust in Despair and Theme of The Disturbed Wind. This'll be part of a third movement. The symphony'll now have four movements, and roughly estimating 45min. of music at this rate. The music is quite pleasant. I'm shock it's coming out as well as it is. My dream is that maybe I could find a local orchestra that'll play it :)

 

The to do list for the symphony

  1. After finishing Triumph, I'll add a new movement in Emin, which will be preceded with a brass section interlude. That'll be a new song I haven't written yet.
  2. Remaster remaining tracks: Detail work on the orchestra songs; accompainment on the remaining harp solos. 
  3. Perhaps write one more song.
  4. Proofreed entire score when finished, make sure everything flows.
  5. Divide Sheet music into movements.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope this helps y'all feel satisfied with information regarding what I'm up to.

Another Symphony Update. That song in the title is finished. The to do list of remaining tasks.

  1. Remaster remaining tracks: Detail work on the orchestra songs; accompainment on the remaining harp solo. At this point, I pretty much just need to connect the songs together, the remaining music's pretty well orchestrated as it is. I'll still go through them of course.
  2. Perhaps write one more song.
  3. Proofreed entire score when finished, make sure everything flows.

For now, That's all I can say. I'll drop provide the playlist again. Look forward to any new music and I'll share the symphony when it's finished. Thanks for reading.

So, How's The Symphony Coming Along?

2017-08-28 14:54:44 by Tyguy80s
Updated

Figure I'd give y'all an update. So, I wrote the opening theme which is available for your listening pleasure.  Using a bassoon solo, the opening transitions to the beginning of the 1st Movement, Blissful Venture. Remastering Blissful Venture is the next task. The to do list of remaining tasks.

  1. Remaster each track (detail work on the orchestra songs; accompainment on the harp solos)
  2. Write one more song
  3. Decide on a key signature for some songs.
  4. Proofreed entire score when finished, make sure everything flows.

For now, That's all I can say. I'll drop a snapshot and provide the playlist so far. I won't reupload any songs I have already, but I'll post any new songs and share the symphony when it's finished. Thanks for reading.
