Jurassic Park - Cover

This is my version of John Williams Jurassic Park.It is an orchestral piece. I used the original melody. however, I shortened them. I also use the key change. but I’ve changed the formal process. My structure is as follows:
I have a free introduction, motif sound, remember the original. Then follows a sequence of the original but shortened melodies. The end is free with rhythmic changes. I hope you like and please give me some feedback what you think if you want to but feel free. thanks in advance.

I like how the string pattern keeps things moving, providing a foundation for your woodwind and other lines. Good job!



Hey! :smiley:

Loved it, agree with everything said so far, very original. You have put your own stamp on it which is fantastic to hear!

Harmonically and structurally this works really well, I enjoyed the lightness of the passages that were playful in nature. Reminds me of saint seans in some respects. The genre is changed considerably which isn’t a bad thing and you kept the overall feel of the melodic content quite grounded.

There were some things that I thought you could have payed more attention to, such as the transitions between some sections. A few cadential passages wouldn’t have gone amiss, this would have solidified your sections even more than you have done already, giving them a stron harmonic grounding. There are many ways you can do this. The typical ones are 5-1 (perfect cadence) or imperfect if played the other way around, plagal cadence (1-4), or you could mix it up a bit and have transitionary cadences that use a pivot chord, or substitution to transition to a new harmonic centre. Just some things to look into :slight_smile:

Mix wise, the overall levels were quite good, though you could reference a track with the same mood for a tighter result, and the low end was interfering with some of the harmonic information… so a bit of subtle EQ could be utilised when the track gets going in the rich sections.

Really like this and I hope the feedback you asked for helps!! :smiley:

Wonderful Klaus! I loved the focus more on the winds with arps in the strings for movement.
