Score test 12

This is the first test that I have actually completed. It translates the visual story into powerful musical counterpart. I doubt that I will settle for this one, but as of yet, it is the only one that is relatively complete, and time is running out.

Score reference mix

This is a mix created from three songs from the Avatar: the last air bender soundtrack. This is the direction I want to move toward as far as the "pace and tone" of the score, but not necessarily the sound. I took this song and tide the story beats down to it creating a "sound map", then I took the sound map and created a new song following the "sound of the story". Originally I wanted to just use this Avatar mix, but, I'm broke and can't afford to buy the right to the 3 tracks, so I'm just gonna have to compose my own music. It's a shame though because I was really moved by the power of the chorus.reference
