It may differ from the original form by reharmonization, paraphrasing or development of the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic structure. Orchestration differs in that it is only adapting music for an orchestra or musical ensemble while arranging "involves adding compositional techniques, such as new thematic material for introductions, transitions, or modulations, and endings...Arranging is the art of giving an existing melody musical variety".
