Christmas Apocalypse Orchestral Compo 2012

 

 

VOTING UNTIL 30.12.2012 (if the world doesn't end in the meantime)

 

Christmas compo this year will be a bit different from the usual christmas compos we had in the previous years. This time, we have that happy end of the world thing going on, you know: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon

So let's combine those two themes and make it a christmas apocalypse orchestral compo!
Your task is to write an orchestral christmas tune combined with the end of the world (which will not happen maybe). 
Your tune can be happy, if you think the end of the world is a good thing, or it can be very dark, if you are more the drama type of guy. Your tune just needs to be orchestral. 
So, here are the rules!

  • write a christmas apocalypse orchestral tune
  • use orchestral instruments
  • only exception are drums
  • song maxlength is 15 minutes
  • you may submit 2 entries
  • Deadline is: 22.12.2012 23:59:59 (this is a saturday!)
  • upload the track before the deadline here on this site
  • don't publish your track until voting is over
  • upload your tune as mp3
  • make it sound awesome

Real or tracked? Orchestral or not? I'm afraid somebody has just thrown his work at hand to the compo regardless of theme. But it has high production values.

Quality stuff, this could be in a low-budget game. Good variety and dynamics in parts. Maybe the chord progression could have had more variation. Now the bass note progression starts to get a bit boring towards the end.

Nice strings: like a movie music or classical one from Bach.

This was a really nice song! But it feels a bit "synthy" (minus points for the electronic bass) ;)

Isn't it cheating to make feel good music since it makes voters feel good.

Clear and nice to listen to, but MIDI-ish mechanic. Drum loop kind of spoils the orchestral feeling. The jingle bells sample was dull.

Als Gott noch Hosen trug Serpent mp3 ogg flac
Artist Comment: Firstly i have no idea what the title really means, it was minus that wrote in oneliner that "it would be a good title" and i stole it :D God and trousers.. No idea. Secondly all the normal excuses of no time and not knowing what to do etc.

Stereotypically orchestral ok, but slightly mechanic. Nice key changes and different parts, showing that some thought has been put into this. About the Christmas part I'm not sure, but end-of-the-world maybe.

Some harmonies may be promising but they don't reach their full flowering. Not a bad try though.

Merry Apocalypse LargerThanLink mp3 ogg flac
Artist Comment: A medley of diffrent styles of music from around the world. Unfortunatly I ran out of time in the end and had to rush the ending a bit. But it turned out pretty ok I think.

Prog rock influences? (Like some Gentle Giant stuff or Jethro's "Songs from the Woods"?) At least there is effort put on this one.

Funny. Tight swing! Orchestral ok, and xmashappy. Mechanicâ?? Interesting Arabic twist in one part, but then it turned Irishâ?? too bad.

nice little composition - doesn't have enough density for me, that's why i only voted 3 stars (the piano part is very nice in the end though)
