Thanks guys, I\'ve had a few similar responses to this, Vaultcomplex and all I can say to my defense is that it was completely unconscious. I do think the similarity is striking (having actually A/B\'ed the Mancini piece with mine) and somewhat unfortunate. I think it\'s different in both orchestration and melody, but in the end it\'s just a demo of VSL and nothing serious compositional-wise.
I enjoyed doing something different than 100% pure orchestral music for a change [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Thomas. Dont listen to vault. He knows nothing about animals. All my elephants like it quite alot. I am having them all running around now and I havent even fed them yet. They dont care about where the theme comes from... They just wanna party on!
I did it about a year ago and it\'s the only track I\'ve got online at the moment. Needless to say it wasn\'t done with VSL because VSL wasn\'t out when I composed this [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Picture this as an opening to some dramatic epic opening of a movie in some exotic setting [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
If you listen with your eyes closed you can feel the big epic helicopter shots gliding over a mysterious scenery [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
