Just finished with the latest round of updates to my amorphous overture compiled from various related or unrelated themes (originally "Overture from the Taste of Sunrise," posted a while ago). "Epic Overture" was born out of a play performed by my school drama club last year, but the play, with its small-town setting and theme of deafness, doesn't have much to do with the music anymore. I guess this music is the last thing you would want to hear as a director working with a composer because it is totally ill-fitting. Fun to write, though. Check it out.
All sounds are GPO and JABB. Sonitus-fx reverb. Notated and played back in Overture 4.0 for PC (there's no human performance involved).
I tend to always be working on this thing... any criticisms? The more changes to make, the better, I figure.
i thought it was an awesome piece with tons of different parts and themes, but it avoids sounding like a medley. i feel like you could make 10 songs out of it, but it still works well together. you have nice trasitions between sections, which i always find to be the hardest part.
i don't really know what else to say other than you have a lot of really nice stuff in here - especially the intro. and also, you said you always work on it - is it done? or is there more?
Thank you for her persistance, Cerrabore--The new link works for me, and may come in handy to some other hapless soul. It doesn't stream instantly like on the Box link, and the page is full of pop-ups, cookies which I blocked, ads etc--but I could download, and that's the main thing.
AH, now I'm finally enjoying the popcorn-at-hand, highly enjoyable experience of hearing your quasi-film score. It was well worth the hassles of trying to get at the link.
Really nice melodramatic turns and pounding white-knuckle scoring. Excellent job with the instruments, with none of the overly-perfect keyboard-chord effect one hears too often. I guess the heavy use of reverb fits the style of what you had in mind, but for me it verged on being too much.
Slick writing and production--Really well done! Glad I finally got to hear it. Thanks!
