Lady Gaga ‘Applause’
For Orchestra by Walt Ribeiro
Should be out this week.
This cover art reflects what is a fresh new start for me, I feel like a new person. Acoustically, this piece sounds much different than the others I’ve done. I’ve grown so much the past few months, and I re-enter with a fresh new mindset and motivation.
I wanted the cover to reflect this new direction - a simple, sophisticated, and “clean slate” of sorts to start from.
I know I’m late to the party on this piece, but I never like to rush things in my life. it does not matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop. Each week I try and 1-up my previous arrangements and this one stands as my favorite.
Next up: Attack On Titan. asdjfhgskjdghladf
My Lady Gaga ‘Applause’ is using 30.39gb of my 32gb of RAM. I keep saying how my pieces are getting pretty epic in scale :) And boy is it true for this one. Little Monsters, prepare!
P.S. - I’m afraid to see how big Attack On Titan will be!
I’m on Day 6. It’s been an insane week, and I think you will puke rainbows. Should be out by this week.
If you’re familiar with my Mega Man arrangement where I added that new section, then you’ll notice that technique make another appearance.
Sorry that I’ve skipped a few weeks this month. I’ve been busy working on lots of big things for you - and as I said “when I’m quiet that just means I’m about to get really really loud.”
Got things together in my life. Proud to say WEEKLY schedules are back. Coming up: Gaga, Rainbows, and metal
“A little gambling is fun when you’re with me, I love it”
Lady Gaga’s music has all the elements of a perfect Orchestral arrangement. The strong dance ‘four on the floor’ beat, memorable melody, synth lines, and more made it a blast a successful arrangement. Making a video promoting this was VERY time consuming… for several reasons. Everything was new to me, plus my computer is optimized for audio, but video is different. Poor software and knowledge made it painstaking. Anyway, enjoy this piece! I hope to do more pieces by her soon. Its’ just too fun to arrange her songs for orchestra – I’d like to do ‘Just Dance’ or ‘Love Game’ soon. I have quite a few tricks up my sleeves these next few weeks [lips sealed]. Life’s a gamble, and I love it.
We’re making the Orchestra cool again.
