Yesterday I posted a remake
of a piece I made back in 2015 before going to Europe. Initially, the tune was meant to sort of be a humorous tune that played heavily off of those old Japanese animated cartoon themes (like Pokemon and especially Dragon Ball Z, where they used a lot of horns mixed with rock music).
The tune is at the link below. Let me know how you feel about the mix and the arrangement. The older version is at the bottom.https://soundcloud.com/davdud101/defenders-of-totem-2017-2
The live horns here are three trumpets, three flugels, two small bore tenors and a large bore acting as a bass. I also added in a synth-tuba and synth-bass to fill out the bottom end with the contrabasses.
Let me know what you guys think of the arrangement, performance, and mix! Today I took the first link down and reposted a version where I actually basically redid the whole mix from scratch and added several guitar parts. That's where that real drive was missing before!https://soundcloud.com/davdud101/defenders-of-totem
