The classical scoring of Big O is certainly one of its trademarks, and indeed it is worthwhile to listen to because of the tracks' excellent quality. However, wouldn't it also be wonderful to play the music?--For this reason, I was wondering if anyone out there knew whether or not there were ever releases of Big O sheet music. If not, have any fans dared to arrange the scores themselves, based upon ear? I would appreciate any insight into this...'cause I want to wake people up like R. Dorothy does... *snicker* Cool

We wish, there is no official sheet music for Big O, or just about every other anime as well.
If there are any fan works that have produced any sheet music for Big O, then they remain unpublished and unknown to the public.

Well, the song that Dorothy learns from Instro is called "The Raindrop Prelude" and was written by the Polish-French composer Frederic Chopin. That music is available at any decent music store.

The song is even better than the excerpts which are on "Big O." I wish they'd play the whole thing because there are some very nice fortissimo passages. The only parts we hear are the softer ones which are like the beginning and ending of the storm. The middle of it where the rain is pouring is spectatular and was very much ahead of its time (late 19th century).

I first was turned on to the song as a child when I played the piano regularly. Hearing it later on Big O brings back fond memories.

I found Raindrop Prelude on a Sony recording, SFK 89266, which includes a number of other popular Chopin works, such as the Military Polonaise and the Lento movement from the Funeral March. I think the Polonaise would be an amusing alternative for Dorothy's wake-up music.

Yeah, that one is a good one. And very fun to play as well. But it is probably a little too majestic to be annoying in the way that the director wants it to be.

I have written up some sheet music for other songs on the Big OST...

Wish I could do Rundown. I guess Im not as skilled of a pianist yet.
NVWC2006 02-19-2004 06:32 PM
I completed my transposition of Sure Promise.
I can either make custom solos, or give the parts for:
Trumpet
Trombone
Tener Sax
Bari Sax
Viola - Bass
Tuba
French Horn
Percussion

I also have self-made Clarinet and Bells parts. I'm working on Flute. You can either recieve the music in the form of a blury bitmap, or, as a Noteworth Composer file. Or, as MIDI, all parts mixed, or all from one instrument.

I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but do you have "Apology" for piano?--That song makes me cry when I want to cry, and I want to be able to play it for myself. After all, I think that, besides the opening and ending themes, when people think of "Big O"'s music, they think of this song.
number9 02-20-2004 09:23 PM
Ive never done "Apology" because I love "Sleep My Dear" much better. So I've done "Sleep My Dear", as it works nice on my synth here at home. It wouldn't sound right on a standard piano like Apology would.

I'll work on Apology when I get the chance, I've been too busy for anything really lately.

I have the original soundtrack, and isn't "Sleep My Dear" just "Apology" with different intonations and played in a higher octave?--Other than that and the addition of the 'airy' noise in the background, they're virtually the same song, so it would be fairly simple to convert, right?
number9 02-21-2004 01:30 PM
There isnt as much going on in the left hand on 'Sleep My Dear', and like I said 'Sleep My Dear' plays well on my synth, since I can split the keyboard to play the airy pads and keep a majority for the regular piano.

That being said, the 'Apologize' theme is recurrent throughout both OSTs. There are just variations of the theme.

I believe that 'Sleep My Dear', Evolution, 'Brick Ballades', 'Apologize (Bleecker St.)', and 'Distance' are all variations of it.

Not to be mean, but then why even bother posting?
YoruameBaroness 02-21-2004 09:00 PM
Oh, man, I was hoping there was some Big O sheet music. I mean, they have Cardcaptor Sakura sheet music . . .plus I haven't played my piano in so long, the keys are turning yellow (my piano has ivory keys. It's an antique).

I only have the OST1 soundtrack, so I must ask: Which version is the one that includes the saxophone? (i.e. the version that we first hear in "Roger The Negotiator.")
number9 02-21-2004 10:40 PM
That would be "Brick Ballades" off OST2
NVWC2006 02-22-2004 01:45 PM
Well, if it helps, I've been working on Brick Ballades, and since that is basically the same theme featured in other songs, perhaps that may be of help to people?
The notes are easy enough. I'm just trying to write music with each length correct... If you just wants the notes to like play the song on the piano or something, I can get you those no prob.

EDIT: In the key of Concert B-flat (key signiture of B-flat and E-flat), this is how it is. I've made grace notes lowercase, all others are uppercase. I'll leave it to you to figure the octives out.

G,E-D aBBBBBBBB G-F #f-GGGGGGGGGGGG. bC, E-F-F G G, F-E-FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.G, E-D aBBBBBBBB, B B(natural) C C(high) CCCCCCCCCCC(low). G B, #F-F(natural)-E-FFFFFF E F bCCCCCCCCCCC. bC, E-F-E BBBBBBBBBBB, #fF(natural)-E-CCCCCCCCCCCCC.

Hehe, can you read it?
