GAT 499 Journal - A Change in Direction

As a followup to my last post, I have decided what to work on for this semester-long project. Instead of a game or recorded original song, I am going to create an a capella arrangement of Massive Attack's "Teardrop." I was inspired by this guitar/vocal cover (also below), specifically the focus on what I consider the heart of the song – its tonality.

I'm really looking forward to flexing my arranging muscles again, playing with chord voicings to bring out the cycles of dissonance and consonance that I love about the song.
