Hello, Everybody,

This song was written a couple years ago, I have remade it with RealTracks and BIAB MIDI style featuring string orchestration.
I think the song doesn’t need a skillful vocal, so I asked my underclass student to sing it.
Maybe it was successfully done.
I have belonged to a music circle that consists of people who had finished the composing and arrangement class of Yamaha music school.
Now I introduce it to you.

Title: 雪のワタボウシ(Translation; Floss silk headgear of snow)
Vocal: Yumi, my circle friend
Accompanied with rhythm section and 4 part strings.

Style is _CSTRBAL.STY
RealTracks in style: ~518:Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~~367:Guitar, Electric, Background Dreamy Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~~368:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 065
RealDrums: RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven8^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride (A part)

Style is ST_ELMO.STY
Style MIDI Instruments are :
Acoustic Piano played with Steinberg The Grand3
MIDI Drums played with Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 (B part)

Additional Strings played with EastWest symphonic orchestra

Summary of lyrics

We are puzzled with the hesitation in the town glittered, and wrapped quietly with snow.

Are you aware? I am next to you but I can’t get started to express my feelings.

I am looking for a place where the floss silk headgear of snow blown off will be gently melt and bloom.

May I tie your hand tightly? I want to walk your right side all the time.

In the next spring I am sure our love will bloom neatly.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hello, Peter

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I have listened to many American standard songs and musical songs from my childhood.
Maybe I have been affected deeply by them.

Best Regards.

Salut, PRADON

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I was very encouraged by your warm comment.
I have studied the strings arrangement through the orchestrations of great arrangers in your country, such as Michel Legrand, Paul Mauriat, Christian Gaubert, Jean-Claude Petit, etc.

Best Regards.

こんにちは Shigeki Adachi,

It's good to see you again!

This is beautiful. I love the way with which you arrange the strings. It sounds like very sophisticated 4-part harmony to my ears. It's easy to tell that you have expertise in this field.

The chord progression that supports this melody is beautiful. You're a talented composer!

Regards,
Noel

What an excellent way you have brought the orchestral parts in and out of the song.

A very enjoyable listen.

Thanks for delivering another really pleasant contribution.

Magnificent! It sounds HUGE on our monitors.

Nobody does this like you.

We don't have a clue how you do this but we much appreciate the sound and time and effort it must take to do it.

Thanks for posting!

Hello, Noel, Trevor, Janice & Bud

Many thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.
I was very encouraged by your warm comments every time.
As I have loved the strings arrangements, I still often listen to the works of my most favorite arrangers such as Michel Legrand, Claus Ogerman, Nelson Riddle, Don Sebesky, Ennio Morricone, etc.

Best Regards

Yes, the sounds of EastWest symphonic orchestra are my most favourite among many vst orchestra instruments.

Hi Shigeki,

This could be music for a romantic 50's/60's movie. We're thinking of Audrey Hepburn.
The strings are beautifully arranged.
