I just wanted to share my new film score that I just finished last night with all of my friends here on the forum. It is for an independent feature named "Eclipse". The plan is that this film will make an appearance at all of the major film festivals throughout the country. I'll let you guys know more when I do.
It was written exclusivly with Sibelius 4 and the GPO crossgrade. Once it was written, I exported the audio and imported it into Sonar Home Studio 6XL for mastering and reverb effects.
http://www.jonathoncox.com/eclipse.mp3 (This is a fairly good size file. I think around 65 megs. Grab some coffee! ) -approx 28 minutes and 11 seconds long (EDIT: It's actually only 28 MB's)
(EDIT: I also just uploaded and wma file here's the address: www.jonathoncox.com/Eclipse.wma I hope some more people can check this one out. It's only 13 MB's.)
The score itself is written in a quasi-minimalistic style. The entire thing is based on a half step motive, taken and shaped in many different ways. I always compose my scores with an endgame in mind. I write in film order so that the melodies, emotions and textures evolve natuarlly.
I know I haven't posted anything in the listening room for a while, but I hope you like it.
Please let me know what you think. Comments and critiques are most certaintly welcome.
(Edit #2 - For a limited time, I have posted my new film on my website. It is called Eclipse. It is an independednt feature that delves into the mysteries of a religious cult. (Note: It is complete fiction)
I have placed it on my website as a streaming Flash movie. It should work in all browsers.
Please let me know if there are any problems.
This is a rough edit of the film, so you may hear odd things, such as the director giving cues. This is for educational purposes only.
Please let me know what you think. Be honest. If it stinks, tell me it stinks!!
OK, I hope you enjoy it.)
