    How's everyones composition contest pieces coming?

    Just wondering how everyone is doing with the Garritan Personal Orchestra composition contest?

    Hard at work on amazing pieces, I'm sure you all are...

    I can't wait for some of them to start rolling in, I know Gary's gotten quite a few entries... just hoping everyone is doing well with their's...

    I've narrowed down my entries to 5.

    Actually, my entries will probably come in at the last second, since I'm so overwhelmed at the moment.

    I haven't submitted a thing. I keep hoping that maybe my orchestration skills will improve by November so I can drop the GPO bomb on Gary at the last minute. We'll see. One can always dream. And hey, there's always next year, I think...

    ditto to that last comment.

    I'm using the contest as a motivator to study orchestration. Before this summer, I was only making MIDI's, but there is so much difference between making a MIDI sound good and making some real orchestral samples sound good. It's a great opportunity to have. I've bought a couple books on orchestration and I am working my way through them.

    A bit off the subject, but I had the chance over the weekend to check out my college's library, and they literally had shelves and shelves of books just dedicated to orchestration, including all the old out-of-print books! I can't wait to have access to them!

    We have received several dozen entries so far. There is still plenty of time before the deadline so take time to make your music the best it could be. Many new sponsors are participating so there will be lots of prizes.
    Looking forward to your participation.

    PS: Sean - Libraries are great places to find many gems on orchestration. There are many little-known texts that are excellent.

    I think I'm another one of those people who is hoping that my orchestration gets better by the end of the year (you know, that thing called skill that I dont' have a lot of....) Maybe I'll have something that I'm proud of and feel is decent enough to submit...
