Tales of Symphonia 2 English Opening

Post by Finny570 on Thu Jun 02, 2016 1:04 pm

Currently I am arranging ToS 2English opening. I am a little behind only because I changed my arrangement quite late however I know this piece quite well so it shouldn't take to much time.

Here is what I have done so far:

Awesome arrangement! Smile Two BIG suggestion I want to make is to not make the notes so linear. One good example would be the brass section at Section 'A'. The notes are basically two lines duplicated into several instruments. Try to vary it up by adding some tonic-dominate relationship within a chord leading up to the next section, adding a 3rd or a 5th, etc.

The second suggestion is to adjust the octave of the melody for specific instruments so that it will be in a comfortable range AND it sounds good to the ear -- especially in Section "B". Going back to my first suggestion, it looks like you copy and paste the melody to another line without proper octave consideration. What I suggest is to use double (or even triple!) octaves to your advantage so you can emphasize the melody without using too much instruments as your resource. Save them for big moments like logical, climatic sections. And besides, I'm pretty sure that the Horn cannot properly sustain that high A (in the melody) for too long without stagger breathing. This will result in the next measure being played with little breath left.
