New Beginning:

Instrumentation: Lots! Primarily traditional instruments mixed in with orchestra and synth. Also some choirs for a touch of epic-ness.

Recordings: Happily Nino is virtuoso on Yamaha plastic Fife and recorded it live! Trev did a lot of field recordings gathered by strategically waiting and eating sandwiches out by the local fire hall with a recorder, and getting voice overs from unsuspecting friends.

Process behind the composition: Team chose to work with the relating topics: First a scene in ancient mystical Mayan times; the carving of a new calendar which foretells through alien knowledge the end of mankind as we know it, and the start of a new era. Fast forward a couple thousand years or so to present day 2012 where pollution, wars, and natural disasters are wreaking havoc across the globe. People are stretched to the point of being ready to make change. Near the end of 2012 increased solar activity caused complete shutdown of all power grids on earth for a month. Elite Energy industries which held a monopoly on fossil fuels dragged progress for decades and now went down since people realized they they are free and independent. All of this lead to a rather dramatic shift in human conscience; to agree on a more sustainable future and a happier ending!

After we agreed on course we divided parts everybody started composing individually. Once the first drafts were shared and listened we exchanged stems and mixed a few versions. Once we decided on the exact form and the pace of piece everything was mixed and mastered.

Authors: Nino Rajacic & Trevor Sparham.

........well........I love you.

I'm not usually moved by soundscapes, but the beginning just had such character to it. The contrast you created between these time periods is extraordinary. The ambience in the present day is also wonderful, I really liked the siren for some reason. This is just so very cinematic. A great end too. I could envision a single survivor standing amongst the ruin of the world as the sun sets. You have a mastery of sound design here. Superb work!

Thanks everyone! Nino made the beginning part, rounded it up with the ending, added epic choir, took part of my midi to run through LA scoring strings, and gave a whole lot of direction to the track. Lots of reworking! There were some 1 hour sleeps, with time zone differences and jobs between us smiley

Oh! My! Gosh! WOW! What a composition! Hair-raising. Goose flesh. Powerful.

The story alone is pretty strong and then to hear the music while reading the story ... well, remarkable stuff. Yes. Remarkable stuff.

Gorgeous! Feast of sounds & textures, invoking many visual images in my mind. Vast expansive full on orchestral sound, wicked cool deep dish bass & 'Omen' choir vocals. Hitting all the pleasure centers in my brain. Excellent work.
