Now that the deadline for the GPO-contest is over, everything is done and all decisions are left to the judges: Anyone want to show off, with which pieces they intend to entice the ears of the mighty and godlike panel of judges?
Maybe we could even make a vote after enough people dared to publish their work and find out who the forum thinks made the best piece?
Admins! If this thread is wrong in this forum, then please move it! My only concern was that not as many people read the Demos-Forum...
Personally I submitted 2 pieces. Because 1 of them was 10:30 long, I had to split it up a bit through really bad audio editing. On the other hand, the outcome was not THAT bad....
* Piece 1 already was submited to this forum, but I remixed it from scratch (although this was BEFORE the GPO Updade).
"Join the Sith!" (1:00, 1MB) Score (for reading along and even purchasing)
* Piece 2 also was composed back in 2002, but I think it is really the best I ever wrote. Intended as an exercise in composing and orchestrating, trying out some harmonic progressions (you'll notice the whole piece is moving up a 4th in every section and it also is built upon 4ths), I thought it would be very fitting. After more than 7 months of work it was nearly ready, then the GPO Update hit the street. So I decided to go back to field 1... Amidst mutliple exams and other important tasks I did some insane shifts and managed to finish a fairly decent mix in the end. Actually I am a bit proud of myself, because in this project I really started to have the feeling that I can contol the sound in the mix.
Gary, if you read this: Thank you for GPO! Thank you so much for this amazing update (Big thanks to the people behing the curtain, too!!)! Thank you for making such a brilliant product! Thank you for making it 200% better through this incredible upgrade! My hope is that this piece will be useful at showing off what you can get out of GPO.
Just listen to the accents on some instruments (and those WONDERFUL string staccatos at 7:19-7:25!) and the wonderful control one has about the sound of the solo strings (e.g. at about 4:00-4:30).
Without forther ado I present my other submission: A classic Overture for the Sith Cycle, including the following sections: The heroic good-guys theme, The inevitable love Theme, March of the Sith, Heroic good-guys theme reprise and finale.
"Overture" (from the Sith Cycle) (10:30, 10MB) Score (for reading along, more information on the music and even purchasing *hinthint* )
