    Trojan Asteroids II

    I posted this over a year ago and I think now that I know a little more about mixing, that I have mixed it a lot better. The Trojan Asteroids are in the same orbit as Jupiter.

    All of the instruments are GPO. This piece was composed in Sibelius and then the audio was taken into Sonar for effects.

    Here it is.

    Here is the score for anyone that is interested.

    Thanks for listening

    I have posted a different piece in the non-GPO listening room titled Zombies in Paradise, If you would like to hear something a little creepier, please check it out.

    Wow Ron, I took a peek at the score for this.....58 pages?






    I enjoyed the trip, thanks for sharing your piece! John

    I don't use Sibelius very often anymore. I'm sure there is a way to get those measures closer together to make it less pages. At least there should be a way. But then I just looked at my copy of the score for Scheherazade and it has 224 pages. I think it is about 4 times longer than my piece, so I am in the right neighborhood.

    I do hope you went and listened to Zombies in Paradise. I think you would enjoy it.

    Thanks guys

    Cool Re: Trojan Asteroids II

    Can you explain what the Trojan Asteroids II mean? Intellectually?

    The Trojan Asteroids are in the same plane and orbit as Jupiter but are 60 degrees ahead and behind. So if Jupiter is at 12 o’clock in its orbit, the asteroids are at 2 o’clock in front and at 10 o’clock trailing Jupiter. I imagine that they are twisting and tumbling and running into each other all the time. There are most likely at least as many asteroids there as in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

    This piece is a speeded up account of them bumping along in the dark.

    Thanks for the listen

    I found it very interesting, soft and pleasant to the ear, is a descriptive work, with subtle, abstracts and evocatives images, i could imagine the asteroids and the planets in the space, unconcerned and far away from human problems. For moments i thought that this music could perfectly fit in a space documentary.

    Regards,

    Good!

    I am a space documentary freak. I watch them all of the time. The discovery channels are some of my favorites along with all of the other science channels. I have even been going to Hulu and watching all of the old Cosmos programs again.

    I figure that the Trojan asteroids can be useful to us in the future just because of Newton's 3rd law of motion. If you have a spaceship, you need to throw something out the back to move forward. Those asteroids are just waiting for us to throw them out the back.

    Thanks guys

    Re: Trojan Asteroids II

    Hi Ron,

    Just back from a nearly 3,000 mile motor trip of the Midwest, and armed with an audio CD of your Trojan Asteroids-through-Croc Hunt pieces (sorry, just missed getting "ooze" on it ), I finally was able to listen to a bunch of your works several times each. Really great music; I love your style and orchestral pallet.

    But besides your very definite compositional/arranging/orchestrating style (the dissonance, the episodic fragmented nature, the evocative percussion, the low, dark colors ... I'm still shivering from the bass clarinet in "Croc"), I've come to realize (and enjoy) that you also have a very unique mixing style that seems to swell and release, swell and release, ... As a result, your pieces all have a pulsation within them which really imbibes motion and life to your already dynamic music.

    Anyway, great stuff ... I really enjoy your music.

    Regards,

    Frank

    BTW ... There is something very surreal (and disconcerting) listening to your music while driving in Northwestern Ohio on I80-90 in the middle of the night! I didn't know if the starship would come down and swoop us away before we hit Indiana.
