Leo On Ice - Overture (demo) // me
Here’s the very rough (no drums, mistakes not fixed) demo I created for the Overture to Leo On Ice. This is a one-take performance I did using Logic, to get the ideas together and make sure Tony was OK with it. From here, I transcribed this into Finale and generated the parts that would be used in performance like everything else. The Finale horn and string samples blow Logic’s away, but I didn’t have time to figure out how to use them here. That’s on my TODO list for the next project when I’m not so rushed.
Like all overtures, it’s a kind of highlight reel of the pieces to come in the larger work. They are, in order of appearance here (different order in the show):
- "Leave My Name On The Door"
- "Leo On Ice"
- "Paul’s Lament"
- "Leo On Ice" (a different part)
- "What Would Leo Do?"
- "A Whole New Leo"
(Whole lotta Leo there.) Once we get the real recording done (TBD) I’ll post that, too. The difference between this and that will be striking.
