This week’s piece: Super Junior ‘Sorry Sorry’ For Orchestra. For my 3rd Kpop tribute, I played off of the black/white/gray from Super Junior’s color scheme that is seen in their videos and artwork. To offset the 3-color design, I added a warmth of dark red – a emotional color that, appropriately for this arrangement, symbolizes infatuation, passion, and vitality.
Thoughts On Super Junior ‘Sorry Sorry’ For Orchestra
The best books are the ones that can keep experiencing over and over again. The best movies are the ones where you notice something new each time. As is the case with music, this is the single factor that draws me into a song’s world each time.
Over the past few months, having studied more Kpop music and the entire genre’s ecosystem as a whole, I’ve learned a lot, and it’s really helped me grow as a composer and musician. I’ve noticed that Kpop constantly surprises me with each listen. Their songs may seem simple on the surface, but when you study and re-listen to them, you begin to uncover a new piece.
One of the characteristics I’ve discovered about Kpop is the advanced musicianship in the songs. There are jazz 9th chords, overlapped rhythms, chromatic bass lines, and complex counterpoint ideas going on in a lot of the songs. But what makes it so great is how it’s all happening “behind the scenes”, so it’s easy to digest. These are things that would never happen in american music, which is why there’s the familiar “this sounds awesomebut I don’t know why!” response to it.
The reason is because each listen is different than the first. It’s new, it’s exciting, and it’s challenging. But it’s only challenging enough that it keeps you guessing, but not so much that you lose interest. Rather, the challenge creates the interest.
The true signs of a composer isn’t in being able to play or write complex – rather it’s knowing when to include it and when to exclude it. To be able to showcase your talent, be complex, or hit the high note is great – but like I said before: they should be embellishments to your palette, not the brush itself.
So with this piece I wanted the percussion to really stand out, but only enough that it embellished rather than take away. In this tribute to Super Junior and Kpop you’ll discover drum solos, woodwind accents, syncopated triangle, and many new fun sections.
Simply put: upon each listen, you’ll hear something new.
