Lol Sherb, there are two versions of the theme song from Paprika, though i can't really say which is harder...or even how Dully will attempt it, but i really hope he does! I was thinking a slowed down version might be good, Hirasawa is notorious for making very complex songs, but in Satoshi Kon's Millennium Actress, Hirasawa had one main theme that is quite fast and difficult which he slows down and alters for other songs in the film. It works very well, such a method might apply well to Paprika's main theme...well, just my thoughts anyways c:

( Really hoping Dully will attempt it now :hug: )

Edit: Sorry if i steered a little off-topic, the film graduate creature in me appears sometimes, its a Jekyll/Hyde kind of thing... :shame:

Meh.

LINK for those who are having trouble deciding on a song

I suggest that each listed participant have their song listed with their name on the first post of the collab thread. We don't want people practicing in preparation for the collab if they don't know their song is already taken by someone else.

Going to play the Back to the Future Theme song. To bad Universal Studios got rid of the Back to the Future ride cause that would be a perfect place to shoot.

:facepalm: why didn't I think of this?

I'm going to take Bat's advice, and update the first post with the name of songs that people are playing. So we don't have duplicates.
(You can feel free to change your song at any time)

Also, if your song hasn't been listed, it would be because I'm not sure if you're sure you're playing that.
I will only list the people who gave definite answers, for now.

Does it have to be the theme, or just a song from a film? For example, could I do 'I'll make a man out of you' from Mulan?

Well it was originally movie themes, but some people seem to be playing insert songs.

I supposed as long as it's recognisable from that movie, it should be okay.

If nobody did it before me, I'll do the theme from The good the bad and the ugly, otherwise something from Aladdin

Haven't had much look finding sheets though D:

Yes Jady! THAT Paprika! I'm still trying to figure out which song to play from that movie or how to arrange it for it to be recognizable and playable in the Oc. :D

Okay, great. I assume we can play in any key we want? I guess you're not trying to blend the pieces together/put a backtrack to them... xD

Nope. As long as it is completely recognisable (to someone who knows the song) then it's fine.
Also, I recorded my part earlier today.
But my cellphone cameras mic is rather poor, and some of the higher notes didn't get picked up at all.
I may re-record the audio part with my good mic, but it won't be the same without the sound of the wind making the tree's rustle etc. It does have a very natural sound, and the song is definitely recognisable... but I'm unsure.

Opinions?

YAY! :hug: :love:

Awesome Dully! If you could do the main theme somehow that would be so fantastic, if you decide on another song from the film, i vote Parade, seeing as it is my favourite ^^ (and strangely enough, one of my favourite songs in general). But i'm sure whatever you pick will be really good, i look forward to seeing you play! :boogie:

I'm actually learning Parade as of now!! :D :D I'd just like to know if I can use a backtrack, as playing it without one might ruin the mood of the song, or make it just plainly impossible to play.

I'd rather you didn't use a backtrack.
It would kinda ruin the atmosphere of the collaboration overall. Sorry D:

I was going to say, the soundtrack album includes just the instrumental piece of Parade (thus excluding the vocals) which would ultimately be perfect for a backtrack. But i can understand the rules for this collab, i guess it would be very distracting and quite interruptive to have constant changes between backtracks throughout. I still think the general melody of the vocals played on an ocarina would still sound just as nice without any accompaniment. I wish you the best of luck Dully! C:

As I posted in the main thread, an outdoors video is no longer a specification.
I realise that will just make it harder for people to get a video.
Feel free to play it wherever you like.

There's so many songs to choose from, but I just can't think of one!
I'll find something though, and I will make a video
