LOOK AT WHAT YOU MAKE ME DO

The Mayor’s Fugato is currently under final revisions, which will not be featured in the demo’s makeover due to the fact that some singers have already been recorded.

Meanwhile, I’m studying alternative notations for Act III’s more modernistic tendencies.

WELL THEN

Glitches aside, there’s been the usual slow but steady progress of shaping up the score of Act I to its final form.

Also, the libretto to the prologue has been drafted and is now under revision.

Demo #6 – Giant’s Lament (Audio Makeover)

Posted in Uncategorized on April 19, 2015 by mbulteau

Best viewed in full screen.

After being released by accident due to Kafei’s meddling in the swamps, the Giant calls out to his brothers and wonders about their past with Skull Kid and the future of Termina.

This is a demo of what would be a projection on stage with an off-stage singer.

Many thanks to Eric Hollaway, Aaron Kline, Donald Frank, and Don Paterson.

Sometimes Miguel Jesus can be an emotive person

It was a bit of a struggle to make them look good, but the very first pages of Act I are finally looking like their final form.

A lot of work remains ahead of us. Proper engraving of a 3+ hours long work for full orchestra and singers is a special kind of trial. X_X

Advances in the engraving of Act I. Miguel Jesus predicts the complete score won’t be done before the end of Summer.

Expect the makeover to the Giant’s Lament to be up very soon.

Work proceeds online, as we share a repository for the final engraving of the score.

Everything is quite spread out at the moment, as minor re-revisions are being done to Act I, Act II is being properly engraved for the first time, and Act III is being molded to the definitive libretto, and molding it a bit in the process.

Managed to stick a direct nod to Berlioz’s Les Troyens in Act III (specifically two bars of Châtiment Effroyable). It just so happens that it mixes incredibly well with a further development of Clock Town’s theme. It also just so happens that I have a massive boner for Berlioz’s music.

Picture unrelated.
