What can you do while you wait for the whole score? It's fun to play but damn, we need the last two bars!

We should hold a contest to see who can guess the last two bars. I mean, there's only so many possibilities that can actually match. DO IT!

Great! It almost sounds like a Mozart-ian ditty.

It sure has a sort of classical air to it. :)

Great job with the piece Sedohr!

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Thanks guys.

Speaking of classical air to it, it really reminds me of Beethoven, something like the second movement of the 7. symphony. Which is a slow one, but there's something about the structure and the orchestration...especially in the soundtrack sample.
But as I don't know my way very well in the old masters it might be a closer example somewhere in Mozart or them fellows.

Here's Beethoven (I don't know, maybe it's far fetched but it really has some connection) :

Yes, there are endless possibilities, I believe he will take it to a quick but a little unexpected conclusion.
The simplified chord progression goes like this:

Gm . . . | D7+ . . . | Gm . . . | D+ . . . | Bbm . . . | Fm . . . |Gm/D . Eb . | D . . . |
Gm . . . |A7/E . . . | Dm/A . . . |A7 . . . | Bbm . . . | Fm . . . |

I'm gonna go with this ending: | Ab . . . .| Db+ . D . | Gm . . . | i.e. the Neapolitan solution as in Indiana Jones!

Nice work, really wonderful. I cannot get this little tune out of my head since the samples went online. May you provide a sheet of the notes so that I can just play it on my piano?

Yes, that was my first thought as well. This piece is a bit reminiscent of classical music... though I am not sure about this Beethoven symphony.
