need unusual arrangements for your group?
- greetings all 'round. :-)
i am a composer who specializes in unusual arrangements, what
i call "extreme covers":
radical (de)interpretations of well-known songs; making the
familiar unfamiliar; reimbuing that which has grown trite
with its original mystery.
most of my covers are also dripping with humor/irony. for some
examples of what i'm talking about, check these out:
YesMiEl - beatles medley (won the 2004 boston harmony sweepstakes
best arrangement award) - http://www.floom.com/yesmiel.mp3
Caravanaggio - lugubrious ellington/tizol caravan cover -
Girl from Iwo Jima - ipanema in 3/4, 4/4, 5/4 simultaneously -
if you are interested in having me write something of this ilk for
your group, please let me know: rick@.... i would, of
course, tailor the arrangement to the strengths and configuration
of your ensemble.
