    Film Music 1

    In the experimentation mode. Trying out a few string techniques and other effects. This sample using Solo Violin, Choir, Harp. Cello and Double Bass. All GPO5.

    Your experimentation paid off very nicely. Wish to have it longer, very very good.

    Thank you Ted.

    There are a lot of the specialized articulations and effects that I have never tried in Finale. Aside from the choral trials I have stayed within a comfort zone. So I decided that it might be fun to see just what all could be done. This one, obviously, was to try glissandos and slurs on strings. Although not perfect, it does add a whole new world of options once I find out how to use them. Kind of fun to search and find.

    Very good for just an experiment. The slurs and glissandos were quite realistic; in fact for a moment I was thinking this was a real performer.

    I see you are having issues with Finale, Tom. Have you checked out Dorico? I know it's still a work in progress, but some folks on the Sonar forum see it as the first software that will truly combine the power of a DAW with a true notation system. I'm waiting to see how it develops, but it may have great potential.

    Thank you, Michael. I have been looking at Dorico and it seems like the correct approach, it is not yet capable of handling the kind of work load I deal with - at least not yet.

    The main thing I like about it is that it answers a question we have all been asking for years - why can't notation software be combined with a DAW system. Just to say it can't because it's never been done doesn't address the issue at all.

    For the moment, though, I am trying to find a way to be able to get my system up and running.

    Re: Film Music 2

    Here are some sound clips from music I wrote for the film Area 98 - now appearing at a variety of competitions. I wasn't that much into the topic of the film itself, but the producer contacted me to write some music that would evoke the early 50s feel of science fiction films. That seemed interesting enough to become involved.

    Naturally the music doesn't work structurally without the film showing over it, but you may find some things of interest. Just a stroll though the unusual sounds available in Garritan libraries.
