Granny Weatherwax Theme

Postby engineeringsimon » Mon May 14, 2012 4:24 am

As a bit of fun, I wrote a little piece of music inspired by Granny Weatherwax in "Wyrd Sisters" etc.

I thought someone here might appreciate it...

Nice simple little tune. Keep up the good work.

Thanks everyone. I've only just started the great trek through the series. Currently up to Pyramids. These books were popular when I was in early high school, but I didn't read them then. I think a lot of the best stuff would have gone over my head then.

I'll have to find another scene or character to write a tune for ...

I want to try and play this tune, do you mind if I try arranging it for the piano? I'm afraid I don't have a bassoon, an oboe, or three other people available :D (Of course, if it sounds terrible, I'll keep it to myself)

Go for your life. I'm honoured that you think it's good enough :)

I'd love to see the arrangement once it's done.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I thought the bassoon and oboe had the right "grumpy" feel to them, with Esme's unconventional improvisations being indicated by the "Recycled Percussion". I thought the marimba lent a little bit of magic feel. Maybe I'm rambling. Too much Headology.

I've recently (within the past couple months) had the pleasure to have been immersed in a world full of wonderful fanmade music. from glorious instrumental to techno, dubstep to rock, and everything inbetween. I can't help but admire the talent and dedication that gets put into it, even if there isn't always the polish you get from a studio made thing there is a passion there that can't be ignored. so its always a pleasure to hear more.

what program do you use?
