Split Like a Lip, No Blood on the Beard

by Buke and Gase



from Chef d'orchestre Jesse says:
I discovered Buke and Gase through my wife's band Thisisthekit and right away thought their music would suit transcribing and be a fantastic challenge for our community orchestra. We were looking for inspirational modern music as we'd been hithertoo mostly playing tunes more than 50 years old. This song is very catchy, very complex and beautifully crafted and everyone loved it right away.

And it was such fun to expand an arrangement created by a duo for orchestra and choir. This tune is a massive challenge for us to play as it changes time signature repeatedly from 3/4 to 12/8. Lead vocals by our wonderful Paris Fantasy secretary, Abby Tsype.

from singer Abby Tsype:
The discovery of "Split like a Lip" was one of those "oh my lord, this is so brilliant and I have no clue how they're doing it" moments. From the ever-changing time signatures to the clarity and unwavering drive of the vocal melody, there is constantly something going on in the song to keep your ears perked up at attention. Therefore, we just had to try and play it, if only to see if it could be done! It ended up being so enjoyable, not only to play and sing a tune that you fell in love with, but to also feel that you've evolved as a musician as a result. So a sincere thank you to Buke & Gase for that, and I hope they like the result!
