In “theory”, you could “arrange” to have your discussions here.

voiceleading pop

Postby Spparkle » Mon Oct 09, 2006 8:37 pm

Quick question:

So much of pop music is octaves and open fifths... Granted these are the nonos of voiceleading, do you think it generally is a good idea to follow these rules in arranging pop music, or is it ok to have blatant parallel 5ths.

I know everyone is going to say "depends," but I thought I'd ask anyway since FA girls tend to be a bit of theory sticklers.

Thanks!

Depends... ;-)

I think that if the music has a prominent line of parallel octaves or fifths, then the arrangement is justified in having that same line. It is always cool, however, to create the same line over many voice parts with different voice leadings. Not only does it challenge the group to bring out what should be heard, if they pull it off well, it makes them look very good from a musicality standpoint.

If it's simply a matter of the bass line has a fifth over it throughout the entire piece, I would look to make the a cappella arrangement a bit more interesting. In my opinion, taking a relatively monotonous line of parallel fifths or octaves and making it interesting (thus spicing up the arragement) is what separates a great arranger from a good one.

Anyone can "transcribe" - only a select few can "arrange".

Hey Samir,

Actually, I've been known to lurk from time to time, but I finally decided to register tonight after noticing your post! The Harvard scene has been pretty removed from RARB and CASA and is only now starting to slowly creep into things with the LowKeys in the ICCA's, the Callbacks on BOCA, the Opportunes CD produced by John Clark, etc. Who knows...The Dins are actually starting to do some heavier production on our next album...maybe Harvard will finally join up with the rest of the a cappella world!

Hey guys,

There is the occasional Veritone alum on here as well, should she care to reveal herself :-)

I also know of a callback alum or two to do what Jon did... lurk but not post. Oh, just embrace the fact you are a cappella dorks guys! You already go to Harvard! You're a dork! The jig is up!

:-) Oh, and the song I was refering to was Plane by Jason Mraz... I think that Handel would have agreed with Bill. I sang Soloman with the Harvard University Choir a few years back and I had an A for about 3/4ths of the whole piece. Go altos and their ability to keep the pitch up.
