Today I tried something new. I did my first attempt at what I'm calling the Speed Arranging Challenge. The goal is to get as much done of some kind of arrangement in one stream with the chat having a good chunk of input. Today's chat chose percussion ensemble instrumentation, and the fourth movement of Tchaik IV.
Four hours and forty minutes later - I have a roughly completed arrangement. You can always go back and watch the entire stream later on my YouTube channel. The goal of my series on YouTube is to show my process when writing and hopefully it helps newer arrangers in some way. Here's the audio in case you missed the stream. Just... keep in mind I was trying to write as fast as I could. There's a few things I already know I'd need to rework.
I'm pretty terrible when it comes to doing things daily. BUT! If you are a subscriber on my YouTube channel, then you have probably been seeing a stream pop up in your sub box every other day to every two days.
So that has to count for something.
If you haven't see the streams then you've been missing out! I've got about 1 1/2 shows I've worked on during stream. The chat is fun when there are people there, and its good to be able to get that feedback.
The audio below is an almost finished Beyond the Waiting Place (the Dr. Seuss inspired one) and two movements of an un-named mystery themed show. Have a listen and subscribe to the channel to see more stuff!
