Hey, that school orchestra playing BotH isnt half bad at all! Sure they sound a bit rough at parts but at least they got the tempo pretty right! Bravo!

well BoTH isnt a hard piece. its actually very easy; look at the score. the only hard part is the hard rhythm parts in the middle, and the high trumpet parts. the star wars main title on the other hand is MUCHHHHH harder. much more technically demanding.

as true as that is, I've heard COLLEGE orchestras that couldn't pull this off.

I mean, the horns didn't split... they were able to get out that rythm and at that speed.

The violas were loud and you could hear them and it didn't sound like crap...

The balance was a little wonky, but it may even just be how it was recorded...

Still good video hehe!

A few days ago I posted about a transcription of the Hook track 2 piano intro. I decided to record myself playing it so you can see if it's something you'd like to have.

My current Youtube favorite is the Pixar short shown before Cars, One Man Band. A wonderful short, featuring terrific music by Michael Giacchino. Oviousaly the quality is lacking, but I assure, on the big screen, it also looks fantastic.http://youtube.com/watch?v=CZNm2qSukrc&search=one%20man%20band

Oh man I love this. I wish there was a suite of the music available.

That short film is the reason why Pixar is still the No.1 animation studio in the world.

A sneak preview of what I am going to see on stage tonight:

LOL Very funny. Maybe the geekiest thing I've ever seen, and I'm a Star Wars fan!

It was definitely the geekiest thing I've ever seen. All the geeks sat orchestra level with their lightsabres and costumes. My love for Star Wars doesn't extend nearly that far, but the show itself was absolutely hysterical!

"That was my last line in the trilogy. I'll never work in film again!!!" 8O

ROFLMAO!

Quite possibly THE MOST INGENIUS thing I have ever seen on YouTube.  

Oh man...I'm still laughing.  Wheew.  

WOW.

That's hilarious. LOL

And the genius part, it really all is the voice of Darth Vader. James Earl Jone's has done some...quite interesting movies. :)

Pork-chop sandwhiches?!"

"Last one there's a penis pump!"

"Body Massage..."

"You know what's funny kid... these people, they go to bed, they think everything is great. They wake up and they're on fire."

"J. I. JOE!"

Tell me what you guys think. I just made this edit of the "Binary Sunset" scene with the Alternate music replaced.
