This is pretty cool. For Orchestra! has put together a beautiful rendition of Radiohead’s “Reckoner” which you should check out. Walt Ribeiro, the mastermind behind this, explains how he chose “Reckoner” as his latest orchestra piece:
When I choose a song, I understand that I’ll be spending alot of time with it. There are times when I dislike a song I’m arranging but have to live with it, or eventually get sick of it. Luckily, Radiohead ‘Reckoner’ grew on me pretty strongly. After a few days I began looping it for hours while I was walking somewhere or was waiting at the train station. I started depicting the lyrical meaning of the song and really getting involved in their song structure and repertoire.
Here it is!
