Postby MMY » Mon Sep 27, 2004 3:37 pm

actually, something else i wanted to address:

i agree that arrangments that are little more than transcriptions ARE pretty mediocre and boring. but i have also heard my fair share of arrangements that are very "creative" and differ heavily from the original, only to bring an interpretation that i think has either:
1. made the song sound worse
2. lost the essence of the original

i guess the trick is finding that "arranging" middle ground that is more creative than simple transcription, yet maintains the essence of the original song. but if i had to pick, i'd rather listen to a song that errs more on the side of transcription than losing all semblance of the original.

one of the greatest comments i think an arranger can get is someone who says, "i didn't really like that song before, but i love listening to you guys sing your arrangement of it".

i think the Logs have done that on SoundProof, and rightly so.

By the way, how funny is it that the two albums people can't shut up about right now end in "proof"?




Okay, you're right, it's not that funny.




shut up.

I just visited this part of the forum (I rarely come over here), and although the hubbub seems to have died down, let me say:

I love the Logs album. I was monumentally impressed with what they accomplished, and how the album sounds so clean and bright. I love that they got a loan and built a studio, and I love that they used the technology so well.

I think the idea that the songs on this album don't have arrangements is total crap. I'd say that perhaps 1 out of every 20 college a cappella arrangements strives to be different from the original version (and I'm probably being generous). The rest are just doing their best to replicate the original sound. Which is very hard. And is by definition arranging.

I think the idea that the Logs album goes "too far" for some people may be true. However, please understand that most people are not hardcore a cappella heads. They like music in tune. They like a modern sound. They like effects. They listen to the radio, and have a different sensibilty. To this end, the Logs album is one of the most effective collegiate a cappella albums ever made.

And "The Kids Aren't Alright" kicks ass. And so does "No Such Thing." And so on.
