This was created and rendered with Sibelius 5 for macintosh, and the instruments are a digital set of "real" instruments from Kontakt Player 2 by Tapspace.

It's a short but sweet little piece for String Orchestra, employing a required theme in 3 different ways, varying chord progression, feel, and structure. The original theme is not mine, but is the property of the contest organizer, nathanallenpinard.

I would recommend listening to it either with headphones or through a system with strong bass, so you can hear all the juicy chords toward the end. Enjoy.


Pretty good!

Good flow, good melody. Has a sort of haunting sound towards the end that I really liked.
The only thing really holding this piece back though is your samples, they're very synthy sounding. You would be well served in sourcing some better orchestral sounds. I highly suggest stuff by East West or Vienna, their orchestral libraries are phenomenal, though a bit expensive.

Anyways, great work, I enjoyed this!

Thanks for the tip! Back when i first started I had bought Kontakt Gold for SIbelius 3. When I upgraded to Sibelius 5, I couldn't find or upgrade to the equivalent, so right now I'm stuck with a bunch of ok sounds that came with the Sibelius 5 upgrades. With them, though, are a large amount of awesome sounds that I can't seem to program into any of my scores. In the Kontakt window it shows they exist, but they are not available to be programmed through the mixing window. I'll contact technical support or whatever.

Thanks for the review.


pretty good dude,keep it up.
