My first attempt at writing for film was for a 2007 contest sponsored by Sounds Online. (I’d post a link to the contest but it seems to have been taken down.) A short animated film by Zennor Alexander was provided, and the object of the contest was to write a score using only libraries sold by Sounds Online.
My score was created using EastWest Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs, with a tiny bit of Percussive Adventures 1 (now discontinued).
The title, The World From Chaos Rose, is taken from a Christmas Carol, and is completely inappropriate. I just thought it sounded cool.
I didn’t even come close to winning the contest. Here’s the video, so you can see why.
