I'm a student in the UK, and a big fan of Poets Of The Fall. I attend a music college, and I've set myself an interesting project; to compose orchestral (no guitars/drums/electronics, just strings, wind, piano and vocal) covers of POTF songs. I think the lyrics to their songs are so transcendental, that a really "pure" re-stylization of some their work could produce some cool results.
Since everyone on this forum seems to have been POTF fans longer than I have (since playing Alan Wake) I thought I'd ask which songs you think would be best to have orchestral versions of? It looks like I'll only have the time to arrange something like three, and the decision is killing me. If it works out, I'll be definitely be sharing them on YouTube or something.
Looking forward to seeing what you all think, even if it's that you just don't like the idea.
Where in the UK are you based and which college do you go to?
I've studied music in London for over 5 years and now I've just finished up recording my bands EP.
