Has anyone tried to mimic track 4 I believe, of the schindler\'s list album? It starts with strings in the beginning, very slow and mellow, and later on, has a choir really bellowing out. If you could arrange that with GOS, wow...
Definitely no choir in that track. The only choir in Schindlers List is the childrens choir singing a jewish song in the beginning of one track, and then another track with an adult choir singing another traditional song if I am not mistaken. Cant check it out right now though
There definitely is copyright issues with soundtrack mockups, I checked into it (I called BMI) because Gary wanted to put that Shawshank Prison demo I did on his site. No go!
The soundtrack composer does not even own the rights to his/her songs, the movie company does.
As long as there\'s money being made off the library, you can\'t put up a demo of a song someone else owns the rights to with the composer obviously credited.
Kinda sucks, I was gonna try a bunch of different mockups from movies with GOS.

Does the copyright law prohibit you from creating an \"arrangement\" of the sound track (not a note-for-note mockup, but an actual re-orchestration or perhaps an arrangement for a smaller ensemble or just strings or . . .)? What if you wrote a short \"Theme and Variations\" based on material from the soundtrack? Would that be a problem, as well? I know you guys love the original film music, but maybe you could apply techniques that formally trained composers have used for years, if not centuries. Take a favorite melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, or timbral idea from a Newman score and make it your own, unless of course there\'s a law against doing that.
