Good Day, Fanatics…
I am pleased to announce the revival of my soundtrack project. Back in 2005, I launched the original Symphony for a Saga project and in the face of much skepticism, won over many fans. The idea was to create edits of the soundtracks from all six films into a seamless listening experience. I succeeded in some areas, and fell short in others. You can read the original release thread, here: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/STAR-WARS-Symphony-for-a-Saga/id/2054
Then I returned to the project, hoping to create video to accompany the audio, but I never liked the results I could come up with. My other goals were to balance the length of the Prequel disc, and tighten up the flow of the Classics. Life interrupted, and I never completed the project. That re-release thread is found, here: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/STAR-WARS-Symphony-for-a-Saga-Help-Needed/id/6989
(Jay…you are welcome to merge these threads if you would like.)
With the news of new Star Wars films, how could I not jump back in and finish the project (for myself at least). I finally cracked how to edit TESB, and am not working on tightening down the super long 37 minute suite. I am also working on trying to crack the remix of ROTJ because the audio quality suffers on the two disc SE release.
But many of you have never heard of this project before. I am rolling it all out right now.
But with the increase value social media brings, I have taken some new steps.
First, the original website has been re-designed. If someone wants to host this project for me, maybe we can get rid of the ads. For now, check it out at http://musicofstarwars.tripod.com.
Secondly, I know have a Facebook page. You can follow updates and releases at http://www.facebook.com/starwarssymphony/
Third, I now have a YouTube channel. I would appreciate subscriptions so I can unlock the ability to create a good URL. For now, find the project here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwTjSLrVysoXIKlRfcsIIBA
Links will be posted on http://musicofstarwars.tripod.com. I am only going to upload 320 MP3 and FLAC. Hopefully, MediaFire will place nice and not force me to re-upload links continually. I will also be posting releases on YouTube first.
If you haven’t heard the project, check out the first single from the project, “Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn’s Theme” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-H53YbQcDM
The first suite was just uploaded today, so give The Phantom Menace Suite a listen, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_hlvBcUikg. I will hopefully get links up for this on the tripod site quickly this weekend.
I’d love to hear your feedback and what you think. Like and Share the project on Facebook and other social media sites!
