Planning the Strike

I got an itch to tinker around with composing something orchestral so I fired up GarageBand and came up with this short piece. It’s pretty rough around the edges but I plan to re-do it from scratch when I purchase better quality orchestral instrument samples for my more robust audio workstation, although I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to discover that GarageBand’s little ol’ box of orchestral instrument samples aren’t half bad!

It’s inspired by John Williams’ movie scores for Star Wars and I’ve called it Planning the Strike, because it made think of the interim between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back wherein Darth Vader would be, you know, planning the strike…
