arranging

One of the things I do for a living is write music for other musicians. Sometimes an artist will need a string quartet arrangement, sometimes it’s an arrangement for chamber orchestra, sometimes it’s for a horn section or marimba choir. An artist might come to me with an extremely detailed articulation of what they’re looking for, or they might only have a vague, general idea of things. There are occasions where the artist wants an arrangement to be the centerpiece of a song, and other occasions where the orchestral elements need to blend with guitars, bass, keys and drums, adding texture and dimension to the overall sound. With each project, it’s completely different.

Take a listen to the collection of arranging samples below. If you’re interested in hearing more, or want to discuss arrangements for your own project, I’d be happy to talk with you. Contact me here.
