“Gotta Get through this” score



Edexcel Specification for AS Music Technology 2013 – 14:


Task 1A: Sequenced Realised Performance

Gotta Get Thru This (D’N’D Radio Edit) – Daniel Bedingfield.

Using the original Daniel Bedingfield recording as your stimulus (track 3 from the album Gotta Get Thru This, 2002, Polydor) make a sequenced realisation of this song, including all vocals, instrumental parts and production features.

You should try to match timbres and performance details as closely as possible to the original recording, but you must substitute an appropriate instrumental timbre for the vocal.

A skeleton score has been included to assist you. However, you are reminded that this is predominantly an aural task.

  • You must input all sequenced data by playing or programming the parts yourself. You must not use any MIDI files downloaded from the internet or copied from any other source.
  • You must not use pre-programmed audio or MIDI loops in this task.
  • You must not sample audio from any commercial version of the stimulus.You should submit your completed performance as track 1 on your Music Technology Portfolio 1 CD.
