Dr. Jekyll Mr. Heil's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)

  1. You might remember the thread I made a month ago, about my Naruto arrangements. Well things didn't work out (recording problems, light injury in the left hand), but now it's finally done, so here is the first one: the other ones will be uploaded the rest of this week, each day one, so if you're interested subscribe/come back to the channel once every day/at the end of the week/etc.. these will also be posted on my facebook page if you prefer to going that route: https://www.facebook.com/DrJekyllMrHeil again, if you know other/better places to post about this please tell me.
  2. So, I wrote some (up to 6 now, maybe one or two more will come along) naruto shippuuden arrangements for piano and plan on "releasing" them on the 8th of december (will be recording on the 7th if all goes well) on youtube (sheet music as pdf, probably on mediafire or something similar) (/announcement) Now I'd have 2 questions that the naruto fans here hopefully can answer. 1. Are there any sites where I should "announce" this once it's on youtube? (a thread here, or other forums etc.) and, 2.Will I be killed by an angry mob if I write somewhere that I don't actually watch it? (saw maybe 20 episodes of shippuuden, read some mangas way back, but my interest in series never lasts...but the soundtrack is great) And 1 for the piano players: Would you prefer a complete pdf with all of the arrangements (+some from someone else) as an "unofficial mini piano collection"? If you have an arrangement that you think would fit in the collection (which you'll be more able to tell after it's released) you can contact me here or youtube (I'll write this there too), and if I and the other involved person approve the arrangement will be appended to the "unofficial mini piano collection" (kinda a long/wonky name, I'm open to suggestions^^) Thanks for reading through all this, I'm a bit lost at what needs to be done for things like this to get noticed, so any help will be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi, this topic has been bugging me a lot lately. Officially, if I'd arrange a piece and made the arrangement public (let's say, recording+sheet music, but non-commercial), and the owner of the copyright would be pissed off about it, or smell money or something, he/she(/the company) could sue. (if that isn't the case please tell me so) Now, of course most composers are happy about arrangements of their music, (nobuo uematsu, austin wintory etc.) and post them on their social media, but isn't there a possibility that if the game developer company holds the rights (and/or the composer is very evil) that they could sue? (everything regarding this like personal experience is appreciated) And another thing is, if I'd play a (paid) concert where I'd (partly) play my own arrangements, this would mean twice the trouble, (because it's a commercial use) wouldn't it? (and being from germany, I have to fill out forms for what I play. So I don't know what this would lead to, maybe questions like: "well, did motoi sakuraba give you the permission for this arrangement or not?") (if this is in the wrong forum category, please move this thread, I just thought "help" was appropriate, and I'm kinda new, so...)
  4. I'd love to! I didn't play anything too jazz-y in some time, so this is a very welcome extra variety in my music. ...I'll need the chords (or sheet music) though, I'm not good at playing by ear. (and maybe stems, one for the guitar, one for the drums, so i can focus on each seperately if need be)
  5. for pretty much all genres. I chose "somewhat professional", because I'm not a studio bass player, but i practiced a good amount of time to become one (but chose not to after trying a bit of studio playing, because it wouldn't be fun for me as an everyday job) recording gear is a t-rex squeezer stopmbox (compressor) and an aguilar tone hammer stompbox (preamp) into a focusrite saffire 6 usb, with 2 no-name basses ran through (one of them being a slightly modified very nice sounding 70s jazz-bass replica) there are some things that i can't play (at least right now), e.g. faster than 140 bpm constant 16ths that have to be played fingerstyle. but if you want something from me I know I can't play, I'll tell you right away, so just ask away. (my preferred way of working would be: you show me the WIP, and at least one example of what the bass should be like, considering both sound and the notes played, and i'll figure something out, and we'll work on it from there) I recorded a demo of me playing "ain't nothing like the real thing" by marvin gaye and tammi terrel (i absolutely love motown bass-lines), so you have something to go on, this is without any fx (other than the stompboxes) and without any editing, just played through completely (only bass+click, makes it easiest to judge the playing imo) https://soundcloud.com/dr-jekyll-mr-heil/bass-demo-with-click here is it without the click if you can't stand to listen to the demo with it https://soundcloud.com/dr-jekyll-mr-heil/bass-demo-without-click (although i have to say, judging with a click is much easier. believe me i know, i was born with the click, molded by it, i didn't play without the click until I was already a man...) looking forward to as many collabs as possible in the near future!
