5.0 étoiles sur 5 Orchestration 31 décembre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Livre parfait et très détaille sur l'orchestration et l'arrangement. Il permet de connaître tous les instruments et leur utilisation dans l'orchestre. A réserver quand même aux spécialistes.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Kindle Edition is missing the audio examples 10 octobre 2009
Par marvin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is a good book, easy to digest yet surprisingly thorough.

However, be warned. The otherwise awesome kindle edition is lacking the critical audio examples that you get when buying the printed version.

Why? I don't know. The kindle can handle audio files. Or the publisher could make the examples available on their web site.

But neither option is available. Which ruins an otherwise great read, since you'll be zooming along learning about this or that intonation -- and then the author will say "check out this sample track on the CD" -- but, woops, no audio samples are available on the kindle. I'll bet all the examples would take less than 2 or 3 MB of space as MP3 files, which would be fine. I hope Amazon or the publisher corrects this error.

Luckily, I was able to get ahold of the author himself and he helped me connect with the samples. But that's just crazy! Cool of him. Bad on Amazon!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Why was my previous review deleted? 29 février 2008
Par Jonas Aras - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I wrote a detailed review a couple of weeks ago that gave this book a three star rating. It was not vulgar or inappropriate in any way, yet it was completely deleted. However, I just received an email from Amazon soliciting my opinion once again!

In short, the book has some decent information on sequencing techniques, though some of it just demonstrates a firm grasp of the obvious, i.e., "use controller messages to add expression" and other similar gems.

The orchestration part of the book covers the rhythm section (don't over quantize) as well as the various sections of the orchestra and how to sequence those instruments realistically. The book does not cover how to combine instruments from the various sections. Stings + woodwinds anyone? You will have to look elsewhere for that type of information.

Recommended for beginners.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent book but not enough depth. 27 avril 2010
Par sylva - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I ordered this book in great anticipation to find lots of technical details as to MIDI composition. However, the book appears to be mainly intended for students who are at their beginning trials (or little beyond) of computer composition. Though good at that level, and containing lots of very useful information and tips, the book does not go into the techniques, and their illustration, far enough. Many of the suggestions remain just that, without showing specific work. Ditto with techniques. "Use CCx for situation y" but, although sometimes graphically shown, many times the narative is not developed into thorough presentation. In other words, I would have desired (much) more analysis and examples.

Then, there's too much introduction to traditional instruments, occupying quite a hefty chunk of the book. When creating a book of this nature, one would expect that the reader be beyond elementary stages. After all, orchestration is a capstone discipline. Evidently, one must know the ins and outs of traditional orchestration in order to procede to the next level. The authors mention this, so I won't dwell on it. In my experience, the composer who uses a computer to realise his/her musical ideas, struggles mostly with less than perfect samples, which behave differently when in combination with other samples than when are sounded only by themselves. For example, no matter how good a violin section sample may be, when put together with viola section samples it will behave differently. I know, books that fully render MIDI composition experience can be of interminable dimentions. However, more extensive books are very much needed, and I am sure that readers would copiously benefit from the present book's authors' vast experience. I also realise that such books will be more expensive than this one. Oh well, the cost of acquiring skills has never been an inexpensive endeavor.

Thanks for reading, John.


UPDATE: I have to confess that reviewing the book only a few months after its purchase was a bit premature. I dare say this because the book is packed with much more information than meets the eye when working with it only for a relatively brief time. I am not the impudent, too sure of himself, wannabe to give advice to people as to how to proceed in their work flow. This is very personal. However, if anyone is serious about computer aided composition, then you'll have to sit down at the computer with the book and try out every solution that's given, and then try it again, and then come back to it and try to improve on it, especially when it comes to strings and woodwinds. I now have accumulated enough experience to relate to the incredible problems facing the composer when orchestrating with samples in a sequencer. For example, to date I haven't heard good violin samples as far as their higher registers. They all suffer from discontinuous, grainy sound, with residual background noise which damages bow noise, and aliasing harmonics, top manufacturers notwithstanding. I'd illustrate their sound by the action of dragging a steel shovel over gravel. This sound is exacerbated in the mix with other strings, even if one finally manages to somehow EQ out a few aliasing harmonics. The book treats many of the problems that crop up in the mix and presentation of CCs, tricks to obtaining better legato and expressivity are invaluable. Equally invaluable are the examples on the CD. Needless to say, this is a seminal book, among the very few that treat composition with orchestral samples. Most of the literature out there is focused on the rock band. This book definitely fills in a very deep hiatus in the literature.


A second edition soon? Wouldn't be soon enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book, great insights !! 27 novembre 2007
Par Gideon Leong - Publié sur Amazon.com
A great book for beginners and intermediate orchestrator enthusiasts who wishes to sequence their scores in the computer. Provides a pretty technical explanation of using sample libraries and the way to actually sequence different sections of the orchestra.

A very good blend of traditional and modern orchestration insights. Book is very well organized in addressing different needs of modern day orchestration using computers.

I would recommend this book for any budding composer or orchestrator who wishes to create a mock-up of the orchestral piece...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very informative, useful material. 29 juillet 2009
Par K. Kersey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Thanks to Andrea Perjolo and Richard DeRosa. This book is extremely helpful to the computer musician/producer who wants to learn how to make his MIDI productions shine.

The chapters are separated by orchestral sections, and detailed guidelines are provided for each, in terms of sequencing, arranging, applying effects, etc., with many examples provided so you can see and hear what is being discussed.

The book is very comprehensive, as I would expect from professors from Juliard and Berklee.

I was not prepared, when I first read this book, however.

After I finished it the first time, I had to go back and completely review everything I could about the MIDI features/capabilities/procedures of my MIDI interface, and of my DAW.

What I mean is that I could understand the MIDI concepts and functions that the authors were outlining and I could follow along adequately, but I had to do a significant amount of review to get to the point where I was able to implement these very useful guidelines and recommendations on my specific MIDI controller/DAW.

I also learned about what features to look for in sample libraries, samplers, and synthesizers.

On my second pass throough the book, I was actually prepared to work through the exercises.
