This a big orchestral film score I composed for a short scene from a film I was hired to do music for. This is the mock-up version which is entirely made up of virtual/sample library instruments. I will soon upload the version with real players after the recording and mixing sessions.

This particular cue I used the "overlap" technique where you record two cues separately to save time and money in the studio since these scores are usually done in one take.

Basically you write two separate scores that sound as if it were one continuous score when they are overlapped together.

The reason why this is effective is because in a long cue, maybe towards the end everything is going great but then someone misses a note. Then you would have to go back and start all the way from the top. This is only really useful when doing longer cues.

The overlap of the second cue occurs right at 1:17.

Don't forget, I'll be uploading the recording studio version with the live orchestra sometime before the end of the month!

Thanks! I guess I know I did a good job if you almost got the scene right! It's a bird taking it's first flight in all it's grace and blah blah blah. Hope you stick around for the version with the REAL ORCHESTRA recording of this. This one is just the mock up version with virtual instruments, the real orchestra studio version will be amazing! Thanks again for your review!
