    Dedication to Gene Roddenberry

    Hi I haven't been quite active lately, but I would like to share some previous works.

    As many of us are probably well aware, Gene Roddenberry is best known for his works and involvement in the Star Trek series, one of the most popular science fiction series ever known in Western pop culture.

    Please note I have used Finale 2007 to produce these works and written them before I have received the full version of GPO. Hence, I have used the Finale 2007 GPO Plugin which is the Garritan Pocket Orchestra, not the full Garritan Personal Orchestra. The rendering would not be as good as the "Novus Tempus" piece I have previously worked on.


    Two of these music pieces were produced in dedication to Gene Roddenberry's TV Show Andromeda for successfully completing its five seasons without interruption.

    1. Shining Path to Truth and Knowledge
    Music by David Fang

    Description: The initial launch of the Starship "Shining Path to Truth and Knowledge" or the Andromeda Ascendant for short.

    2. Ascendant and Judgment
    Music by David Fang
    * Adaptation of the Dies Irae Requiem (Day of Wrath)

    Description: Note the "Shining Path to Truth and Knowledge" recurring leitmotif battling against the "Dies Irae" Requiem starting at 1:25.


    Thanks and enjoy!

    Shining: What a wonderful and powerfull piece. (original?) I am not aware of the Andromeda Series by Roddenberry. I could listen to this all day.

    Ascendant: As triumph as any Wagner piece. These pieces are wonderfully orchestrated. These need a real orchestra - Bravo my friend, Bravo!

    These go on a CD of my favorite Garritan music.

    Thanks for sharing. Finale or not, they are wonderfully rendered.

    Do you have direct "streaming" links so that downloading is not necessary?

    To answer some of your questions, yes "Shining Path to Truth and Knowledge" is original.

    My god, where do you guys come from!!

    Really enjoyed the first piece, Shining Path. Will try to get to the others later as I have so many pieces to catch up on. You seem to have a good sense of the orchestra and its dynamics and how to do effective transitions. Listened to it twice and appreciated it even more the second time. Shades of Star Trek near the end there too! Nice touch!

    Try as I might, I'm afraid I can't get these to download.
    The site keeps shooting popups all over the place with
    anything but your music... lol! Ah, well, maybe it's just
    me?

    I did really want to hear these, however, as I was quite
    impressed with your recordings in a related thread!

    My best,
