Katy Perry is a big star at the moment. I liked the melody in her track Wide Awake and thought I could create an interesting alternative version. I managed to acquire the a capella vocal and re-made all of the music from scratch. See what you think, below:
I also used this as an opportunity to get to grips with video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, matching her video to my version of her track.
If you like this please let me know and maybe you could even tell Katy too then she might authorise it for playback on YouTube!
If I can get a bit of publicity I’ll be able to make more and better mixes. Thanks!
Not so long ago I created this orchestral remix of Rihanna’s track “Umbrella”.
I’m not usually a Rihanna fan but used this as an exercise to get to grips with the Cinematic Strings sample library. I wanted to choose a well known track but show how it could be done in a completely different way.
This is the first time I have ever arranged for strings. The string sections are realistically placed in the stereo field and there are a lot of harmonies going on. Because of this, it took me about a week to make the track.
If you like it, please let me know below, and perhaps you could tweet it over to Rihanna too!
