Real Recordings

Post by balt11t » April 24th, 2011, 8:50 pm

I work a lot with my high school's symphonic band (I'm drum major, 1st chair hornist, et cetera), and I was wondering if I were to write a composition (or some one else), I could take it into my band and have us record it, or something similar. We do lack stringed instruments, but we also sound pretty darn good, if I say so myself :whistle: ...

So, would this be at all possible, or is it only allowed to be synthesized music?

If you have good compositions, a good band and a good way to record the pieces i just ask you, WHY NOT? Do you have any record of your band? Can you show that to us?

I don't have any on my computer, no. I can maybe get some recording from contests (we got perfect marks), and I can upload them here. I should also say that my music theory teacher wants to do a project on Composition, and I thought it'd be cool if we could do a collaborative composition as a class, for Wesnoth.

I don't see any reason why not. Software instruments originate from the real thing — the only reason they're used around here is because it is far more economical and faster to play than actually having the real thing.

Probably the largest obstacles are going to be the sound quality of the recording, the amount of time recording takes and applying changes to your music, and editing it on the computer. For those reasons, I'm not sure what quality you're going to achieve unless you have an experienced composer with a very talented orchestra and a good sound engineer.

That being said, it doesn't still hurt to try — and you might learn many things along the way.

Well, I'm definitely not an experienced composer, I don't have an actual orchestra (it's just a wind band), and we don't really have a sound engineer, ha. I may be out of my scope here.
