    4th of July Contest - Win a Marching Band Library!


    Music Contest




    This coming weekend is Independence Day. People in the USA will be celebrating with parades, fireworks, barbeques and festivities. To add to the celebration let's do some music and have a contest.

    Last year's contest was a lot of fun. Last year there were 16 entries with Joaz from the UK winning the prize (and Joaz produced some very outstanding music with his prize).

    Submit a short MP3 appropriate for Independence Day. It could be a patriotic piece, original work, or other appropriate music you may have already submitted. The work must use GPO, JABB, Strad or GOS.

    The winning entry will win the upcoming Marching Band library. There's probably no music more patriotic than American Marching Band music. We'll end the contest on July 10th.

    I am looking forward to hearing your 4th of July music.

    I'm disqualifying myself from the contest, but here's a marching band recording from a series I'm doing for a friend's arranging company.

    Feel free to guess what, if anything, is real or sampled. I'm not telling.

    Trick question Bruce It is all real since it sounds like it was performed live, some of it is just electro-acoustic.

    Either way, that is pretty cool

    Nice work, Bruce.

    Gave the Zen Drum a workout did you?

    Key Poulan (old college pal, and a great guy...I think you might have met him at TMEA, or at least wandered past his booth, the one with the big-screen and black sofas where I had my stuff stashed) did the arrangement. He's the brass arranger for Santa Clara Vanguard, among other top marching groups. Shawn Glyde wrote the drum score. I just produced the recording, and did a few nips and tucks here and there to make it work as a virtual rendition!
