  • Miracles from Molecules Arrangement

    Hey there. I'm currently working on an arrangement of Miracles from Molecules, and wanted to know if there were any more musically inclined MiceChatters who could help. I'd just buy the sheet music, but I have yet to find it anywhere.

    You can view what I have so far here, and listen to an mp3 here.

    For the most part, it sounds exact, however it suddenly drops off towards the end and doesn't sound much like the song at all, and no matter how I try to arrange it, it doesn't sound right.

    For the curious, it will be refined into a full arrangement and then played on a theatre organ, as seen here.

    Theatre organ performances: Singin' in the Rain, Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite, My Foolish Heart

    Your counting and intervals are off after the first phrase. I can work on getting a transcription up with a simple bass line or help you fix yours. Your choice.

    How soon do you need it by?

      I'd suggest going to the source - you might get the full score, with all the break-outs and other "stuff", and if they don't sell it they better know who does, because they get royalties.... Try the contact information from ASCAP:

        In the current background music in Tomorrowland, they play a synthesized arrangement of Miracles from Molecules. It could be worth listening to for help with parts.
        ~The darkness must go
        Down the river of night's dreaming
        Flow morphia slow
        Let the sun and light come streaming
        Into my life, into my life~

          Thanks for the offers of help, here's what I have now: http://www.filedropper.com/miraclesfrommolecules_1

          I'll try to give that place a call on Monday and see if they can give/sell me some sheets.

            The second bar on your version doesn't go high enough on the first few notes - though IANA Musician, I know it's not right... And I played a real copy of the ride track to be sure - I have my sources...

            The best part is, the choir enunciates so well you can catch the word swaps they make in the various choruses...

            "Miracles From Molecules" copyright (1965? 1966?) Monsanto Chemical Company. Words and music by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.

            CHORUS
            Miracles from molecules, around us everywhere
            There are miracles from molecules in the earth, the sea, the air
            Now men with dreams are furthering what nature once began
            Making modern miracles from molecules for man

            Every atom is a world, an infinity unfurled
            A world of innerspace without an end
            a world of mystery, of endless energy
            with treasures more than man can ever spend

            Variant of Chorus (this one used both times in Demo Tracks):
            Miracles from molecules, around us everywhere
            There are miracles from molecules in the earth, the sea, the air
            Now men with dreams are furthering what nature /first/ began
            Making modern miracles from molecules for man

            Miracles from molecules are dawning every day
            discoveries for happiness in a fabulous display
            a never ending search is on by men who dare and plan
            making modern miracles from molecules for man

            Variant of Chorus (used in Demo Track):
            Miracles from molecules are dawning every day
            discoveries for happiness in a fabulous /array/
            a never ending search is on by men who dare and plan
            making modern miracles from molecules for man

              Bruce is right. The second line is off. You fixed the rhythm but the intervals are still off.
              "There are miracles from molecules in the earth, the sea, the air" should be C# D C B C B A D D C# D E D F# D B

              The lines "...what nature once began
              Making modern miracles from..." just the bass line is off I think, so that makes the melody sound off. If you post the sheet music too I can double check.
