Well, i stayed up all night so I could finish this section of the song. Lucky me today was a snow day. this is the middle section of the song, not the whole thing. Now for those of you who are not a fan of my music, and i will assume that is all of you, there is something i need to explain cause i know it will be a problem. i am a perfectionist in every form of the definition when it comes to music. if it doesn't sound exactly the same as the original then im not done yet. Therefor, this song sounds extremely close (if not an exact) to the original. I can assure you that it is transcribed and my computer is playing it. I'm telling you this so i can minimize the flames i always get on my music.

ok, now that i got that out of the way, here you go. hope yo like it. point out any tips, errors, problems i may have missed if you hear any. Video coming as soon as my computer stops being ADD

p.s.
if anyone is familiar with Finale 2009 and wants to help, let me know. also, if anyone has any idea how i can simulate the na'vi singing, that would also help.

Ironically, I am almost done with it.  I have been using Finale Pro 2010.

So, are you going to be publishing instrumental parts for full orchestra or can you?  I really want to play Avatar music in full orchestra!

ngaaaa, James Horner just hit me with the ban hammer. Hes not allowing me to post any of my work in fear if it being released to the public, not even the video i had prepared. he states, and i quote
Quote from: James Horner
"Hello <my name here>, i am very impressed with the quality of your transcription and the speed of which you were able to produce it. I appreciate the fact that you contacted me first informing me of your intentions. However, I wish that you would not release any information regarding the movie soundtrack. This includes all formate including video, text, and pictures. I hope you can respect my decision on this and i will see to it that you receive a copy of the movie score. Again, thank you for contacting me about the matter and I will be sure to contact you when I release the scores. Take Care."
although this isn't the first time its happened i have to say im rather disappointed. I must apologize to ma Skxe Eywaftu since i promised him the bass part, but i cat give it to you yet. i can however still post sound clips so you can still look forward to those.

Well, the double edged sword strikes.  You're complimented for your skills but your request is struck down anyway.  At least he promised a copy of the scores.

I'm actually sorta happy about the way those in the movie industry are handling the requests we make.  The appreciation is mutual in terms of the work they've done and the work we do in return.

Sound clips would be great, yes.

Also curious how you got Mr. Horner's email..

it took a little searching  but isnt too hard if you actually have something important to ask him. i started at the copyright office. they obviously didnt give it to me but gave me his fanmail e-mail. i got a reply back a bout a week later from who i can guess sorts his fan mail saying that he would forward my e-mail to Mr.Horner. A few days later he replied. i wish it was that easy to contact other composers.

UPDATE**

i finished the second half of the song today. Vibrato is a pain in the ass to replicate but i think i got it down pretty well.

now all thats left is the beginning. But unless anyone has any ideas on how to replicate Na'vi singing and hymns then im sorta stuck on this song. my next song will probubly be "Pure Spirits of the Forest"

comments and constructive criticism are well appreciated.

You arranged this -- and the file you posted is a recording of your orchestral transcription?

Sorry, I'm not buying it.




Feel free to clarify.

Nice use of dynamics.  For the hymn singing, you could make a request for singers.  If possible, get the words and arrange sheet music for Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass and you might get some good recordings.  I know I'd be willing to help in that capacity.

(You could even use Auto-Tune!  JK)

iv been thinking that that probably the only thing i can do. its near imposable to match words in a strictly notation process. my only worry about that trying to record audio from different people who aren't in the same room can be an editors nightmare. Lots of room for human error like temp, pitch, dynamics, articulation, etc. everyone sings differently.

Hmmm

You could go to the nearest High School and ask their choir to take a look at the music and record it (assuming the nearest High School has a choir).  As for the words to the hymns, I'm sure someone out there has em.

No, you uploaded a copied section from the soundtrack. Thrice. And you're passing it off as your own work. Locking this.
