When I Need Your Love

1:19 pm Audio Recording, Composition, Education, Guitar, Songwriting

So… congratulate me!!

I just finished the second of two Master Certificate programs at Berklee College of Music’s online campus – Berkleemusic. The first was Theory, Harmony and Ear Training, completed last term. This one was Arranging & Orchestration, where I just posted the last scoring assignment for Film Scoring 101. I’ll be re-doing that submission in SONAR with EWQLSO before posting it here. Right now it’s still being exported from Sibelius, which is great for writing but not so great for rendered audio.

However, the final project for Brad Hatfield’s Songwriting for Film & TV came out rather well, I think. It’s a tune called When I Need Your Love and works as a replacement for Can’t Hurry Love, which plays over a montage in the film Alchemy (if you’ve seen it, you know what I’m referring to).

Thanks to my brother Tony for providing the May-style guitar work in the interlude, and to Ken Daniel for providing drum fills that made the drum track come to life. Also thanks to Brad for suggesting the bells (actually, he meant glock, which I interpreted as tubular bells… but it works).

When I Need Your Love – MP3 – VB – 4.8MB – 2:38 min.

Have a great summer everyone!

    Congratulations. Very Phil Collins-ish 🙂 and the arrangement is very well done.
