Stats for this track
This was a real bitch... I couldn't seem to get my hands on a full, legitimate acapella of this track, but I was determined to at least make something based around the original. I had premeditated the whole thing a few months in advance, namely about a month before the end of my last semester in college. In Orchestration, we always had the opportunity to write a short piece of our own for the ensembles to play at the various workshops. I was already working on this instrumental and wrote out some stuff for a string and woodwind octet, recorded it and incorporated it (however sparingly) into this track.
This track was fully commissioned by a good friend and generous donor, Bill Jagnow. A veteran of the horrors of music school, Bill gave me a few solid pep-talk emails and it always helped a shit load... so I was really determined to give this one everything I had. Bill, I hope you like it.
