In commemoration of TheInterviewer's upcoming 100th interview, here's an orchestral arrangement of The Interviewer theme music.

This track was created in Cubase Essential 5 using the EWQLSO Silver and GPO4 VSTs.

BenTibbetts responds:

Thank you. I'm very fond of the Pokemon Blue/Red soundtrack by Junichi Masuda, so it's possible that I was influenced by his writing style in some subconscious way.

This came out great Ben! Love the intro and the entrance of the piccolo -- what a great take on the original!

BenTibbetts responds:

Thank you David!

Sounds like a Carnival in Brazil. (or not)
Anyway, your audio is great! I'm looking forward to you getting on to this!
I got a little time to explain so bye!

Have a Good Day!
Kdaza20 Out!

BenTibbetts responds:

I wouldn't have thought of that comparison. Thank you for listening.

Oh man... where even to start...
This is the time when a remake is way better than the original.
The very military like beginning, with dignity, then you have the playful piccolo soloing on top, like in marching bands. Very nice contrast.
Later on, it changes to a more "serious" music, bringing some polytonal feel and a orchestration reminding (to me) of Ravel.
Last part goes with ostinato on strings and theme on brass, like in modern Hollywood film music.
Diversity, good orchestration, good mixing, all perfect :)

Thanks for reorchestration, sounds fantastic.

BenTibbetts responds:

Thank you for the inspiration. :) Please continue writing.

Regal, but not even slightly pretentious. Deeper sounding bass instruments might've sounded better, but the selection of instruments compliments each other very well.
It's too bad we can't have our userpages play something from the audio portal when opened; I'm sure The Interviewer would certainly have done so :3

BenTibbetts responds:

Thanks! In retrospect I agree about this track needing more on the deep end, although I think that what you're hearing may be attributed to mixing issues rather than the instruments themselves. Thank you for listening.
