I apologize, but I do not remember who posted the thread that gave a link that advertised the need for a score, that lay in the house that Jack built. But I want to say "thank you". Not because I got the gig, but because it made me think in a different genre. So anyhow, here is something I drafted that I thought would fit the bill.
The score is for a pic that is called "Dog Jack" and is about a runaway slave and I thought that this fit the era. I'm just curious what you think and perhaps you could post something that you would have submitted.
I really liked this. It does fit the period very well and has an almost Copeland feel. My only criticism is where's the rest of it? You've got enough solid material here to stretch this out to 8 - 10 minutes. Well done.
Thank you - I might develop it further, but I just wanted to take a stab at the style first. I also noticed after I finished, that it is the first 3/4 time piece that I didn't swing or waltz out. Rather startled me that I could do that... Thanks for your kind remarks!
THis is very "cute". I enjoyed it very much. I'm not sure what you're saying about the score.... , sometimes my English fails me! But even just listening to it without knowing what it is about, it is very enjoyable music. And I agree with Bill, you should give us more!
I'm sorry - I just realized that I wrote my message in a confusing way. I did not get the scoring job (at least I haven't heard,but I don't think so). I was just posting what I submitted and thought it would be neat to hear what other people would have submitted and get criticism as to what I might have missed or did well in my immitation of the Americana genre.
The film about is a Civil War drama and a runaway slave and his dog join the Northern forces in the fight against the South. I probably should have done something more dramatic. Maybe that's what you might do? Would love to hear it!
Sorry about the confusion . I was really happy for you!! Your piece is right on for the period and I think that it's great! The pieces that I sent were darker and sad, very much what I usually do. Good Luck!! Merry Christmas to you too
