Writing for Alternative Orchestra

Recommended Posts

What is "alternative orchestra"? Is that a music term? No, I'm not being sarcastic.

An alternative orchestra is an enseble that resembles a pops orchestra, with a modern attachment.

The style of music greatly ranges from pops, symphony, and modern symphonic styles (electronic, rock, funk, jazz)

A key ingredient to alternative orchestra is the blending of the modern elements to come across with a very smooth and natural flavor so the Guitars/synths and what have you's do not sound forced or stand outish.

The elements are there, but utilized in a manner that does not scream "HEY I AM GUITAR + ORCHESTRA" rather eloquently states " Here is some really chill music, yo"

Less a synth rock band, more a baroque chamber ensemble.
