A tuba is essential in an orchestra, isn't it ?

Rimsky-Korsakov has said :

Here the distribution of chords in close three-part harmony is self-evident; any grouping of three instruments of the same timbre is sure to sound well.

The method of using three instruments of the same timbre in widely divided three-part harmony is inferior.

But if the third instrument is of low register (Bass flute, English horn, Bass Clarinet, or Contrabassoon), the resonance will be satisfactory.

We have a perfect balance in brass section with 2 trumpets plus 1 trombone. It's enough.

In Woodwinds section we have 1 Flute, 1 Clarinet, 2 altos saxophones. It's wrong.

So it's better with 2 Altos saxophones, 1 Tenor saxophone ?

It's a perfect balance in woodwinds section. Unfortunately Adolphe Sax in his brevet said :

un instrument qui par le caractère de sa voix pût se rapprocher des instruments à cordes, mais qui possédât plus de force et d'intensité que ces derniers (Brevet français no 3 226 du 21 mars 1846.

Also strings must be replaced by guitars. I have spoken about this in my topic of "souncloud group" for beginners composers.

What is exactly instruments inside ?

The following instruments are included in the basic orchestra :

- 1 Flute
- 1 Bb Clarinet
- 2 Altos saxophones
- 2 Bb Trumpets
- 1 Trombone
- 1 Piano
- 2 Silents violins
- 1 Silent alto
- 1 Silent cello
- 1 Bass guitar
- 1 Drum kit

It's an hybrid genre, so i can use a heavy metal kit ?

No you can't. Woodwinds and brass are very old instruments. An ideal drum kit is a vintage kit.

I'll be back, for the ending of my explanations.

This thread is under construction.

What is needed in an epic fantasy track ?

You must be good in serious music. I have make a complete bibliography on my website

Cherubini books are more difficult, so study before with Bazin and Taneyev.

There is two ways in arrangement : classical or popular orchestration.

What is the difference beetween a popular and a classical orchestra ?

First i want to compare used orchestra with a symphonic orchestra.

A symphonic orchestra, why not ?

I don't want to say that a symphonic orchestra is not fine, but i think we can make better nowodays.

What are the differences ?

it's a small orchestra found in "practical instrumentation" by Frank Paterson

What is good, what is bad ?

The ensemble is great, however today we can use an amplified violin better than 1 Violin.

The bass tuba can be replaced by an electric bass guitar

the following coming soon

By now I think it is apparent that Jason is solely working on Blizzard's secret new project, commonly referred to as "Titan". Otherwise we would have seen a cue or two by him on the new WoW expansion set.

I have played a lot of blizzard's games : warcraft II, III ; Diablo II and III, Starcraft and Sartcraft II.

This game is not a secret project, it's just a new game.

Myself i think that the best game of blizzard is Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, and after Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. I think that drawing, music, history were finest, more elaborated. The old team was more serious.

However Global Staffing Team of Blizzard Entertainment has clearly not the same point of view. I have heard a lot of interviews.

But i hope for Blizzard that my opinion is a mistake.

I love the Tides of Darkness soundtrack. Smiley

These versions you've generated here I'm very happy about, because I've clumsily lost the old MIDI files for WarCraft II. Shocked

You can find the original versions on Mirsoft.

This month I wrote a mass.

1 Agnus
2 Credo
3 Kyrie
4 Hosanna

Hello jason, nice to meet you on your forum again.

I played also on starcraft 2, and diablo recently 3. I think that the music is pretty good.

Are you asking if it is possible for you to get podcast piece recorded by a real orchestra?

No, my song is really short !  Wink

I would like to speak about true orchestra without mixing with jason.

For example i like "The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion theme"

It's just a thought, myself i have spoken with jeremy about orchestration in real and mixing.

Finally i think it's possible without mixing.  Smiley

A new example of a song :

Hi jason,

i have look your video "World of Warcraft suite from Play! A Video Game Symphony"

It is possible to use a true orchestra for diablo  3 soundtrack, without mixing :
I know the best book in orchestration of death  Wink

I have made a new symphony orchestra based on an idea of French composer Jean-georges Kastner. Wink

Example of a song :

But after I get this finished and uploaded I'm going to start writing structural analyses of game soundtracks, including WarCraft II, Diablo, StarCraft, WarCraft III, Morrowind, Oblivion and others!

great  Wink

Jeremy Soule thinks that the best book of orchestration is "Orchestration" of Walter Piston.

However he says me that he doesn't use an orchestration in live, it's not a "true" orchestration like in real.

I have saw that John Williams uses this orchestra too :

1 piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 1 english horn, 2 clarinets, 1 bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 1 contrabassoons, 4 french horns, 3 trumpets in C or Bb, 2 tenor trombones, 1 bass trombone, 1 tuba in f, 1st Violins, 2ds Violins, Violas, Violoncellos, Double basses
