Aaron Copland's Fanfare For The Common Man performed on the Deckard's Dream synthesizer

Published on Jan 15, 2019 Sean Christopher - Evoking Emotion Through Music

"Aaron Copland has always been one of my favorite composers and the Deckard's Dream synthesizer was the perfect synth to do my favorite piece by him, "Fanfare For The Common Man".

Aaron Copland (November 14, 1900 – December 2, 1990) was an American composer, composition teacher, writer, and later a conductor of his own and other American music. Copland was referred to by his peers and critics as "the Dean of American Composers." The open, slowly changing harmonies in much of his music are typical of what many people consider to be the sound of American music, evoking the vast American landscape and pioneer spirit. He is best known for the works he wrote in the 1930s and 1940s in a deliberately accessible style often referred to as "populist" and which the composer labeled his 'vernacular' style. Works in this vein include the ballets Appalachian Spring, Billy the Kid and Rodeo, his Fanfare for the Common Man and Third Symphony. In addition to his ballets and orchestral works, he produced music in many other genres including chamber music, vocal works, opera and film scores.

Other than reverb from Valhalla DSP, only the Deckard's Dream synthesizer by Black Corporation was used. Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoyed it. PLEASE subscribe if you haven't already. :)"
