Instrumental concordanceby toober
Iâm orchestrating music for a story in which a kid matures. Iâm hoping that the orchestration will be consistent with that narrative. So, Iâm trying to imagine what the âjuvenileâ version of standard instruments are before they âgrow-upâ. Iâm thinking that â like kids with respect to adults â âjuvenileâ instruments are just thinner versions of their mature analogs. If anybody wants to add further suggestions, please do so:
fife --> flute
kazoo --> oboe??
recorder; or ocarina --> clarinet
muted toy trumpet --> full brass
harp played near top of string, like a lyre; or toy piano, cranking metal pop-goes-the-weasel thingy --> full harp
xylophone; or glockenspiel; or dull bells ---> marimba; or vibraphone
toy drum, rattle, systrum, wood blocks --> full percussion
strings playing near bridge --> full strings
maybe a lute?
