A friend of mine had kids who was doing a school project for Canada's Black History Month and they should present it tomorrow. This was my job, write an epic score for their short film.
My friend had ancestors who were slaves and freed into Canada via the Underground Railroad. He told me the stories to give me inspiration. Part of my inspiration also came from the amazing movie '12 Years a Slave'.
Let's talk about the production!
I started out with the harps. Symphonic Orchestra has the sweetest harps ever. Then I used almost everything in Albion to make it sound good. Albion lack of good spiccato, which I had to use LASS 2, with the exception of low string staccato. I wanted it sounds as similar to "Howard Shore" and "Harry Gregson-Williams" as possible.
The voices and short background choirs are from Shevannai and Lumina. Forgive me for putting Elvish choirs into a song that has nothing to do with Elves!
The intro and outtro are quite similar because I had to follow the film's layouts.
Review and please please give me feedback if you may :)
