Arrangement Experience: Strange Bedfellows Mashup Edition
What happens when you take hits from The Great American Songbook and combine them with current hits from today, give them a new point of view and a fresh arrangement? That’s what you will be exploring in The Arrangement Experience. Each participant will select two songs and learn them as written. One from The Great American Songbook and one from between 2000 and 2020. Then the fun begins! Over the 6 weeks, we will collaborate on a personalized mashup treatment of these 2 songs. We will explore the lyrics, and the style of the song, and create a one of a kind arrangement just for you! At the end of the 6 weeks, your eyes will be opened to a whole new way to look at music. Everyone will receive rehearsal tracks, a finished track complete with virtual band, and a lead sheet for their arrangement. We will also self record or perform the arrangements live on a social media platform TBD.
