Prepare for the ALL NEW 80s blockbuster coming to theaters near you: SUMMER HEAT!

Starring Harrison Ford in a performance that will remind you of BLADE RUNNER or something from TRON, this new epic sci-fi classic will... Okay, I'll stop.

This piece has two movements: Descending to Earth, (0:00), and Life in The Shipyard (1:30).

Vangelis galore. Cracking!

Seprix responds:

That makes sense, since Vangelis composed Blade Runner, and I based the song I wrote on that soundtrack. It seems I inadvertently copied Vangelis as a whole.

Wow! Great instrument-like song! :)

Seprix responds:

Thank you.

This is really good.

Take all my 5's! You're speaking my language! Love it!!

Seprix responds:

Your language is 80s movie soundtracks?

A.I.M Judging Review
Too many brilliant tracks in this contest :(.
Love the retro classical feel you got going throughout the track. Really hear that kind of music nowadays. The transition at 1:45 is brilliant. Sound Design is great, Arrangemt is genius, mixing is point on, and most of all it goes very well with the art.
The ending was a bit lackluster in my opinion. Kinda ended abruptly without a proper outro or forewarning. However, if I look at this as a film score, that's probably how I would want it to end, so I don't see any need to deduct points because of that. Really liked that this piece wasn't too long nor too short as well.

Arrangement: 5/5
Sound Design: 5/5
Mixing: 5/5
Art Relevance: 5/5
Overall: 5/5

Seprix responds:

It was meant to be a film score. Yes, retro music does seem to be a big thing nowadays. I really like it though, when done tastefully. I view it as an attempt to escape the boringness of modern music, but it is only a theory.
