Y U Synthing

Postby Purity_Control » Tue Jul 19, 2016 6:10 pm

I've been having a go at this, usually what I do is find a midi file online of something that I fancy, then use an app to turn it into a score.

The syncopation is the trick bit, also I'm being careful not to knacker my left hand with all the octaves in the bassline. To say that I started playing again at Christmas last year, my hands are still loosening up.

Ooo! nice find, PC! I'm gonna have to try that. I still break out my original Tron soundtrack once and a while.

Since Clav was talking on teh tape jam thread about playing your own arps, and it happens to coincide with my tracking down a piece of music from Westworld I was after, I thought I'd drop this here.

Gorgeous arpy left hand part for most of the track after the intro... there's a link in the video description to a pdf of the sheet music:



Took me a while to find as the version f it I picked up on in the show is played on synth and is an alternate version that didn't make the soundtrack release...

Gorgeous arps indeed. I'm sure with practice I could do that, but I'm nowhere close at the moment... though I did do some playing during the break :)

I have been playing piano a lot lately, but not the easily recordable kind. :grin:

I've got a start on it and it's mainly just 6 repeating bars for left hand if you ignore the 'impossible' notes in that staff that are held across the arp, will work out what to do with those later. Going slow though while my hand loosens up.
