    But you said there HAS to be a Jazz influence in the music. And there is! That makes Pink Floyd a Prog Rock band. 
     
    APP is Prog?!
     
     
     
    Sounds more a Traveling Wilburys than Prog to me.

    What was wrong with the original album that it needed an expansion?

    Love the whole set! That's the way to do an expansion.

    Well, there's some software that tries to scan sheet music to import into Sibelius, but in the past I haven't had a lot of luck in working with it. @Jurassic Sharkhave you ever had success with that? 
     
    I was planning to just input the notes manually into Sibelius myself.

    Can.you scan sheet music into a computer and have it play it back- like a player piano?😗
     
     
     
     
    I'm tempted to vote for Gloin, just based on his title WHICH I JUST NOW 'got'!😅

    Genesis were prog, but by the time they got to ABACAB, they were art.

    Fucking Limeys.
    It's among the funniest films ever made, and chock full of golden nuggets. Jazz Odyssey reduces me to tears!
    My favourite exchange:
    It's a bit Mozart, it's a bit Bach. It's Mach.

    I differentiate between prog and ' art rock'
    MOODY BLUES , PINK FLOYD, KING CRIMSON are art.
    YES, ELP, are prog.
     
    Art rock still adheres to pop traditions I.e. songs.
    Prog takes its cue from classical and jazz and emphasizes long pieces featuring technical virtuosity and complexity
    .
    Write that down😉

    I think I still have the sheet music.
    If I posted it here could that be used ?
     
     
    Thanks!
     
     
    P.s it will probably suck. Be merciful, I was young 😄
    Prelude and Fugue
    ( obviously I could play the first part)

    I enjoy using Sibelius too. 
     
    I prefer trying to sketch on paper, but having a piano or keyboard to check things or play around while I'm sketching, then I input what I've sketched into Sibelius and take some more time writing out parts, then I export the midi and put it into Reaper to use the vsts/ sample libraries. 
     
    Some would say that's too long of a process and why not just play in parts one at a time with the samples in the DAW and skip the Sibelius notation alltogether, but I like having things notated out and it helps me think through things better. 
     
    @bruce marshall you should send one of us that fugue, and we can make a 'mockup' and see what it's like!

    Main and End Titles from a 70s Universal TV movie score I’d just love to have premiered at last! (And Intrada does seem to really care about Goldsmith premieres…) And someone had once posted a highlight cue from the middle of the movie but I can’t find it on YouTube now.
     
    Who’s with me? By the way this TV movie stars Eli Wallach and William Shatner (just 5 years before Star Trek: The Motion Picture and 15 years before he as director brought Jerry back to the franchise for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier!)

    Those chords are straight out of "Thus Spake Zarasuthra!"

    @bruce marshall: This one sounds most like the stately fanfare I imagined someone would come up with when the competition was announced. The lento introduction is neat and provides contrast for the rest of the piece as it builds up. I like how it develops over such a short time.
     
    @GerateWohl: I can't even imagine managing a composition for anything more than a piano much less a whole brass quintet! Good sense of tempo and some really strong counterpoint ideas. 
     
    @Michael G.: There's a lot packed in this one; it's succinct in the way a studio logo might be. Good choice with the choir/harp samples, and you can never go wrong with a hint of Dies Irae to boot!
     
    @MrJosh: There's no option to vote for more than one this year so I'll happily single out this one as my pick. You knocked it out of the park! 
     
    @Glóin the Dark : There's a great energy to this and it keeps up for the whole minute. I really dig what you got going on here!
     
    @Jurassic Shark: My mind went to a silent film piano score at the start (and I mean that in a very good way), but the conclusion really puts this over the top for me. The progression sounds very natural too, which is hard to do in such a short time! 
     
    @Grace Under Pressure: There's a cool dissonant combination just before the conclusion that adds an extra edge to the idea. Very noble!
     
    Really impressive selection from front to back! I always enjoy hearing from you guys, particularly in this sense. Thanks and cheers!
