The video footage in this video was taken with my own camera and has been processed to resemble older film. I feel it helps reflect on the "past" where Tara and I shared so much happiness together. The locations where this footage was taken from was Manitoba and British Columbia, "Canada."
After few weeks of composing, editing, and finalizing, I have finally completed the biggest and most complex composition in all of my composing history.
This is the complete First Movement (Save Tara) to Save Tara – Symphony for an Angel. I have already mentioned in the general discussion forum that their will be five movements to this project: First Movement – Save Tara, Second Movement – Love, Third Movement – Sorrow, Forth Movement – Tragedy, Fifth Movement – Angel Tara.
The First Movement – Save Tara, focus on the heart of the memories of Tara. Unlike the four movements to come after this, the first movement is composed of several different passages ranging from courage, hope, sorrow, tragedy, and drama.
Save Tara was meant to reflect upon all of the moments we shared together. It expresses on the love we shared, the happiness, and up to her parting. Save Tara was meant to tell our whole story in a single composition. It is why it is the heart to the memories of her.
The original arrangement to Save Tara was my first composition ever created.
The four movements that are to follow will focus more on the specific events of our story and the memories of her.
Anyways, here it is… the first movement which ends at over 17 minutes. This is the best I can do at my level of composing skill. I want to thank Randy and the rest of you for helping me out with techniques. I also want to thank Randy specifically for encouraging me to use proper dynamics. I guess it’s time to stop being lazy with compositions now.
Save Tara - Symphony for an Angel is being rendered naturally with some equalizing but no limiters for increasing loudness. After comparing two renders one with loudness and one with the natural flow I feel natural was the way to go for this. It allowed a much smoother flow of dynamics and sound as compared to using limiters for pumping up the volume.
The meaning to Save Tara is, "Never let the memories of my angel die, save the memories of Tara."
