“clouded days” was recorded directly into Sibelius 6 while watching the video, sort of – something I’m still experimenting with. The intent was to try to following the video and react musically to it. Frankly it was hard to do. After recording the piano I did fix some fat finger flubs. The recording and playback are at actual speed though this was recorded with Sibelius’ “Live Tempo” so the playing flows better than the score because there are unseen tempo changes. Also, frustratingly the pedaling I did was not reflected in the score…. and other oddities are there, too numerous to mention. However, in general, the score is much better than Sonar’s score. The animated score was captured by SnagIt and put together with Sony movie studio 13. I can’t take credit for the clouds though, only filming them.
A word about this tuning. It has a bluesy flavor right out of the box which is why I play the mostly diatonic run at the start. I found the tuning in the Scala archives. Below is Scala’s interval assignment. I can’t say it is readily apparent to me why the tuning sounds strikingly that way to me. But…. in the end its what you hear that matters.
