    I like this quite a lot—powerful, majestic, yet not quite tamed: the sublimity of the universe. Except the horn or flugel horn (or whatever it is around :20 and various moments after) bugs me in a not good way, and it is not the lines, I think, but their tone and the way they are sitting in the mix.

    Yeah, i have had difficulties to sit it well there in the mix, because it was not the full instrument but the try-pack of 8Dio, only legato articulation and 1 and a half octave... i had to make magic to expand the range... :) The tone is affected as i transposed the samples, i tried to give with the eq and some saturation a natural feel, but there you have! Thanks for listening!

    Aw man, that's beautiful! I was listening to some of the submissions and it seems like it fell into 2 categories: either atmospheric/electronic, or more traditional with horns. I went old school 60s/70s NASA documentary with the big brass thing, which wasn't the smartest move since I don't have much 8Dio Brass. Love the way you bridged both electronic/atmospheric and orchestral. Nice!

    Ahh...It's cheesy! Sounds like every old space documentary I watched when I was a little kid but I had fun doing it anyway! haha

    Wow! i like it a lot. It has a lot of character and you really got the spirit of that era, the 70s? Really inspiring how one can guide the writing :) You got also some nice vintage "space" early reflections :cool:

    Thanks, man! It's kind of fun to do those contests where they limit what you can use. I've been doing library music so that's the first time I've ever tried scoring something to video. I've got a lot to learn before it flows and syncs like yours did to the picture.
