Orchestration for Pros – How To Score Music For Film

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on June 7, 2018

 

Published on Aug 10, 2017

In this episode we explore how to write for a trumpet section including the ranges and voicings of chords within the section. I demonstrate how John Williams uses open consonances such as perfect 4ths and 5ths in his melodies and Trumpet Section voicings. Included are examples from film scores such as Jurassic Park, Star Wars and Superman. Also, we look at the similarities between Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and the Williams Star Wars theme in range and style.
