Let The Music Play

K_bradrey
me and Bradley in 2004 at Desperadoes panyard (Laventille)

I made a score by dictation one of the Desperadoes tune ”Let The Music Play ” because my friend asked me for her band.

I was asked long before, but I couldn't it. I couldn't feel motivated to do it until recently. At the same time I had to face my band problem. I was trying to write dictation again and again, but my mind was on a downer. I heard my inner voice, "I want to arrange, but why is my work only a music dictation request now?" Then I couldn't hear the sound of music well, it was like a misty world. I can usually pic up notes easily though.

After Kobe 100PAN, I recovered my composure, my mind changed and I wanted to try dictation again after a long time. When this work began, I thought it was so easy! I wondered why I couldn't that day? I could hear the sound clearly, I could see the notes like a three dimensional shape. My world was coming back!

And listening carefully I could rediscover how amazing Bradley's arrangement work is. His public image is an eccentric arranger but, this tune is very simple and sophisticated. It was arranged on the everlasting summer Island though, it suits the Japanese view during the fall and winter.

November is the month of Bradley's birthday and the anniversary of his past. I would like to say thank you for his great musical gift. I'd like to start enjoying music again.

Musical Monstar was born in KOBE 100PAN


This is legendary Panorama tune "Pan earthquake"

One month has past since the Kobe 100 Pan project.

These movies was uploaded on Facebook, and there were so many page views and likes. It made a real impact on steelband lovers in the world.

It's not a likely situation; this is the first time that over 100 Japanese players played this panorama tune as an evenly balanced orchestration, actually, keeping a fast tempo.

Something made a very big impression on me when we were in rehearsal the day before. We had already finished rehearsing the panorama tune, and the song, "Shiawase Hakoberu yoni (support earthquake damage song)". We were worried 100 players had made "time lag", and "noisy chaos sound", that I never experienced in Trinidad.

After that, another tune rehearsal began with Mr. Harada. This song, "Fantastic Voyage", was composed for this event and arranged by him also. When he was starting to conduct on the front, our sound began to change soon, in order to breathe new life and make one, brilliant sound. That was the moment of birth for this great musical monster that is full of life; our music changed from something like fake paper decorations, and we weren't only playing scores closely.

After that, we replayed another two tunes, and also changed the sounds be lively. We were so surprised we could play so nicely. The next day, we never made time lag or any noisy chaos sound.

We are so proud our sound be one sound. I'm very happy and lucky to play on front of this over 150 players steelband in Japan.
