ack, amv song selections...

Postby LightningCountX » Wed Jan 07, 2004 8:02 pm

Ok, here's the deal. Im working on a Gundam Wing Project, and im gonna use the whole series, but set it up into multiple videos(chapters)now, i want to have all the chapters instrumental, without any lyrics. One song im definetly doing is Requiem Of A Dream from LOTR's. I really need help finding other instrumental songs. The first chapter of my video will contain prolly episodes 1-10. Anyone have any suggestions on song choices? Thankyou :)

Gustav Holst's "The Planets"

"Mars, the Bringer of War"

My recording is 6:57, but it lends itself to editing.
I don't know if it'll fit the mood you want in episodes 1-10, but it might work for other sections.

What an interesting call! I had just suggested "The Planets" to "Lord of the Rings" when I read your suggestion for Gundam Wing.

Of course, I would recommend some of the other movements (though not all of them would be applicable) for Gundam Wing as well. Jupiter could lend itself pretty nicely, as well as Saturn.

Something to watch out for: "Mars, the Bringer of War" is not going to necessarily be an easy one to orchestrate to an AMV. It has an uneven feel to it, helped greatly by the fact that it is written in 5/4 time. It is NOT a marching beat (unless you're used to that sort of thing and that's not unheard of). If you want another example of 5/4 beat, try "Take Five" (though that's jazz).

It IS a march too, we played it in marching band (and nearly lost people tripping over their own feet!). 5/4 is what makes it fun...

Another good choice: Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky

"International Code" from the Independence Day soundtrack. It's short instrumental, and the mood of it fits Wing pretty well.

GO WITH MARS :D

That is all I say. I'd like to see a video with that.

Damn, that needs someone to use it. A very dramatic and tense piece of classical that would be good to see used.

That, Mars and Summer from Four Seasons are the three classical tracks that I've always thought had some use for AMVs. I'd say that a track to Wing with Mars, the Bringer of War is a good idea.

Princess Tutu uses Tchaikovsky ballet as BGM throughout, climaxing the first story arc with episode thirteen, called 'Schwannensee' ['Swan Lake'], and uses it to great effect.

You might try getting some Shostakovich or Prokofiev. A lot of their work is very 'visual' (Shostakovich was used in Disney's Fantasia). I used Prokofiev myself (see sig), it's not the easiest audio, but it's very doable.
Mozart also works very well with video. Check out the soundtrack of the movie Amadeus for ideas (hell, check out the movie too if you haven't seen it, it's a perfect example of how to use classical music and video).

In general ballet's are good points to start searching (for obvious reasons). Maybe I can think of some more specifi ideas later on.

Die Walkure by Wagner is also really cool. From what I've seen of Gundam Wing it would work very well.

why don't you try '10th man down' by nightwish?
they actually have alot of great songs for amv but if you're using gundam, this would suit.

(not that i've seen much gundam.. like 2 eps maybe... I don't like the mech designs.. too blocky)

thats not intsumental dammit. thats jpop but still a good song. any ways you could use Neodammerung from Matrix Revolutions soundtrack. that cd is packed full with instrumentals. i would suggest some Star Wars ones but there overused. ive only seen Neodammerung used once for Gundam so far but not Wing though. i was going to use it myself for a Blue Gender vid but i decided to scrap it.
