I have been thinking more about my timbrel palette and I have also been reminded of Silverchair’s album ‘Diorama’. This album is a great example of a band that is looking to expand it’s musicality and it’s timbrel palette. For this album Silverchair had the help of Van Dyke Parks who had worked with the Beach Boys. The arrangements and orchestration are quite elaborate and very different from the bands grunge roots.
The timbrel palette that Siverchair uses on this album reminds me of ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ by the Beatles.
In the following song you can hear a brass section and epic string section. This band have truly expanded their timbrel palette.
