Default Death and Discoveries (my CYCC competition entry for JW's 80th bday)

So, the results were announced today and even though I did not win I'd like to share this piece with you guys for some feedback. The track is purely orchestral featuring a handful of different libraries, and focuses primarily on just one motivical idea used for development. Thanks for listening!

Actually, it wasn't so bad. I was under a lot of pressure when I wrote this because I just graduated today with my bachelors and when I was writing it I was preparing, studying, practicing, writing for other things, etc. It took me 2 weeks between all that and a full time job to write it. You'd be amazed how quickly you can write when you have pencil and paper nearby to aid you in the process!

Rich orchestration. Just that the brass hit in the first few seconds scared me off. Haha
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Casey,
technically its very well orchestrated but it sounds disjointed,is the cue supposed to sound like a medley of J.Williams underscores and orchestratons? D

No, it wasn't supposed to mimic anything about JW directly, he was the just reason why the competition was being held. My purpose when I approached composing this was to try and create as many variations orchestrationally as I could with just one theme. If you listen closely, you'll hear there is only one motif that is used as melodic and textural material and is developed/fragmented throughout the entire piece. Thanks for listening!

I listened very cloesly a few times but it still came across as a soundalike medley of J.Williams underscores and orchestrations,
In other words I heard J.Williams but I didnt hear C. Edwards. D
