To celebrate the completion of the Jazz Improvisation class I am taking, I have arranged Olhos de Gato, by Carla Bley (one of the pieces studied in class) for orchestra. I have created a string backing for the melody, then added the melody from “Memories of Tomorrow” (another piece studied in class) as a counterpoint, and also my own melody as a further counterpoint. Finally, I created a new ending, based on a descending harmonic progression.
This is the same arrangement as previously posted, but this one is converted to MIDI, loaded to Logic Pro X, and revoiced using the EWQL Symphony Orchestra Gold. Final mastering in Logic Pro X and Ozone 5.
Reorchestrated using solo string instruments for a more authentic Baroque feel and changed harpsichord to EWQL.
Performed by Finale 2014a (Baroque HP).
Orchestrated using mixture of EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold and Garritan Personal Orchestra 4.
