The Zombie Party Song - The Splendid Isolation Orchestra

Hi folks. 
Thanks for agreeing to play for the second video by The Splendid Isolation Orchestra  whilst we are in lockdown.
The piece is a big full-on symphonic-rock blaster!  This time I have included parts for full orchestra. The strings do do a lot of chugging away (sorry!) to keep things simple for post-editing.

There are parts for each section with a link to the PDF download and the original orchestration backing track below.

INSTRUCTIONS

PRE-RECORDING

  • Download your music PDF (listed below)
  • Download The Zombie Party Song backing track MP3 (link below)
  • Tune up. Concert A (440 Hz) Test tone here:
  • Use earphones or headphones to listen to the song as you record your performance.
  • Look as energized as you can when recording!
  • Play the articulations and dynamics as written
  • IMPORTANT -  Please film in LANDSCAPE - NOT PORTRAIT

RECORDING INSTRUCTIONS

START YOUR RECORDING

Part 1.

  • The piece starts with an Oboe A note. Record your tune-up again from the Oboe note as you would in a real performance. The tune up note will stop after 20 seconds, then 4 clicks and then the guitar riff will begin from bar 1.
  • Keep recording until the end of the piece, no matter what!!
Part 2.
  • If you like singing, choose an SATB vocal line for the Choir vocal bit in the middle of the piece. It can be a separate take. It has to be very clipped and a bit pompous! Choir PDF is at the bottom of the page.

POST RECORDING

  • Upload your performance (audio and visual) to Dropbox or another common file-sharing server
  • Email me when it's done - I will upload your stuff and then do the rest
  • Enjoy and have some fun!
  • Email me here: info@up4itmusic.com
  • Love, hugs and keep safe! xxx
