Arranging Classitronica – Mike Leghorn On His Synth Version Of Holst’s The Planets

Sonic State’s Nick Batt talks with Mike Leghorn, who is currently working on a new synthesized arrangement of Gustav Holst’s The Planets.

The Planets has been a popular work with synthesists, since Isao Tomita released his arrangement of it in the 70’s.

Leghorn discusses working from a MIDI version of the score, creating an orchestral electronica arrangement, synth orchestration and tackling a large classical work.
