Conceptual Music Competition 29: Star Force One


Recommended Posts

CMC: Conceptual Music Competition


This competition is based on the rules of the classic TOMC (Thematic Original Music Competition).

The CMC (Conceptual Music Competition) is designed so that each participant enters a piece of music based on a set theme. The participants take the theme and interpret it as they will to come up with something that fits. Any style can work, as long as it portrays a sense of what the theme is.

Feel free to be imaginative!

Each successive theme will be chosen by the winner of the previous competition. For example, say the theme of the last competition, CMC 34, was "Extinction" and the winner, Candie, submitted a piece that knocked the socks off of everyone, so she won. Candie then gets to decide the theme for CMC 35.

This competition is open to registered members of the forums of

OverClocked ReMix, VGMix, VGMusic, Gaming World, Young Composers, and GameDev.


CMC 29: Star Force One

"In the frosty reaches of outer space lurk wonders and perils beyond the human imagination. When earth is in danger - when alien princesses are in need of rescue - when there are strange new worlds to explore or savage monsters to subdue - only the crack team of spaceborne heroes known as STAR FORCE ONE is up to the task! Your mission, bold composer, is to create a musical tribute worthy of their daring exploits." -Maquis


There are 8 entries for this round...

Pavloff - "Star Carrier"

  • "9 Droids are on their way to Destroy the Uroneus Star Carrier."

Rich Douglas - "Star Force One Overture"
  • "This piece of music represents the main title for a fictional Star Force One film. It's an overture of sorts featuring several of the key themes which would hypothetically be heard in said film as SFO is heroically protecting the galaxy."

Really? More like six when you posted that. I'm submitting - I'm racing the clock. I have over 2 minutes, but I'm not convinced about a wrap-up. Shan't be long 'til it's ready. I'm at midnight now, assuming I have until 4 AM.

You got anything, SaX?

James Householder IV - Star Force for Brass Choir (Op.27/4)

Mp3: http://qfyumq.bay.livefilestore.com/y1psyndhklW9_nT1-KI7ktFk6d0JD3Y3-SQHvzA2yirFPCxUdNoGLC2r_H2QQ2cD7OGS_MpF6lzghcqDw9IP3is4k7W96R2zvpl/James_Householder_-_Star_Force_for_Brass_Choir_CMC29.mp3?download

A few words...

"This is a combination of a concert piece, and sort of a video game title track for the supposed game, "Star Force". As I write for musicians and not samples, I had to make do with what I have. I recorded the output of Finale '08 Demo's SoftSynth. As with my past CMC entries, the work is composed for brass choir. I started a trend so I figured I might as well keep it and expand my brass writing by evoking the prescribed themes using only brass."

According to the rules, you should PM or e-mail your entry to Abadoss and not post it in the thread. I'm pretty sure, though, that if you PM him with your entry (if you haven't done so already) and tell him about the post he'll accept it. Posts are time-stamped, so it shows that you turned your piece in on time.

Every composer "borrows" from existing pieces unconcious from time to time, so its not a problem. I just mentioned, didn't want to accuse you of course. The bests are the pieces of Pavloff and Rich Douglas.
