I'm in the final few months of preparation for the premiere of Star Wars: A New Score, and the work has been tedious! I'm producing the tracks (and likely will be doing so up until December!) and it has been a huge growing experience. Thanks to some generous funding from Gardner-Webb University, I have the MIDI sounds I needed to realistically recreate an orchestral sound - the EastWest Hollywood Orchestra. The sounds are phenomenally realistic, and they've provided me with the tools I needed to successfully complete a project this large.
Production can be tiring! I've spent hours and hours tweaking 3-4 minute clips, all to make sure that I have the perfect blend. In the end, I hope that the audience can't even tell a difference, and that the experience will be like that of a full orchestral score. Check for more updates soon!
