OK, so here's the story on this tune. One day, I was just browsing Newgrounds for some inspiration. By accident, I came upon this recording by CosmicAlfonzo. At the end of the piece he asked the question, "It's epic ain't it?" So I thought to myself, "It's quite epic! However, it is missing some elements." And this was when I decided to mock up a version of the melody using a set of instruments resembling a symphony orchestra.
In this piece, I show you the result first and then I let you hear what it started out as initially. So now you know how epic tunes are realized. First, come up with the idea and record it no matter how awful it might sound. Second, turn it into a full blown symphony orchestra using a bit of music creativity. :)
Got an epic melody you want to turn into an orchestral tune? PM me and let's collaborate on it!
