Copyright issues

Hey everyone,
I don't know if this is just me, but all of my arrangements of anything Star Wars related has just been removed due to copyright infringements, despite me never having claimed credit for anything other than just enjoying the music and wanting to share my versions with others. Has this happened to anyone else? 

Thinking of making a separate account for symphonies

So, I have been planning out my first symphony. I gave it the nickname "The War Symphony". It still isn't flushed out yet but I have decided to have it be a programmatic symphony with this movement structure:

First Movement:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Battle
Form: Sonata Form

Second Movement:

Key: F minor
Aspect: Death
Form: Not decided on yet but I'm leaning towards ternary form

Third Movement:

Key: Not decided on
Aspect: Battle again
Form: Scherzo and Trio

Finale:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Victory
Form: Sonata-Rondo Form

The first movement is what I have flushed out the most out of all the movements so far in my plans so obviously, that will be the part I work on first. But I'm wondering, since I can't really afford a Pro membership(maybe a few years down the line I will be able to afford it but I can't currently), should I make a separate account to put my symphony score on once it is finished? And if so, should that account be just for my symphonies if I happen to want to compose more than 1 symphony?

The Timeline Part 1

To start off with the timeline of this trilogy, we have to look at the origin of the Magicians. This is a group of wizards and magical beings who created many magical artifacts, mainly the Magic Sword, the Magic Shield, and the Book of Magic. The group is organized about 20-30 years before the tragedy of Princess Zelda I.

Princess Zelda I and her brother Prince Gabriel are tasked by their dying father to stop the coming calamity. They find the sages but they struggle with finding the next hero. It was then that Gabriel finds out about how his father hid the Triforce of Courage from everyone, and Gabriel saw this as an insult because the Hero would bear the mark of the Triforce when the time was right, and he would need to retrieve it. Gabriel thought his father thought he wasn't doing a good job when really the King was doing was helping identify the hero.

The prince grew angry and interrogated anyone on the whereabouts of the Triforce of Courage. At this time, a wizard who sought to serve the next reincarnation of Demise wanted to know the whereabouts of the Triforce of Courage. When Gabriel came to interrogate his sister Zelda, she gave him after much torment and told him of the location, the Great Palace in Calatia. Then the wizard revealed himself and cast a sleeping spell on Zelda. When this happened, Gabriel fought the wizard and the wizard killed himself so that Zelda couldn't be awoken.

Gabriel mourned and locked his sister in the North Tower that could only be unlocked by the Hero. The Magicians then split up and almost died out after the Tragedy. The princesses after Gabriel were named Zelda as a remembrance of the Tragedy.

Soon, the tragedy was forgotten and was only told within the Royal Family.

Hundreds of years later, a new Gerudo King was born and was named Ganondorf and had the same desire for the Golden Power like the previous form of Demise. The goddesses new that Demise was back for the Triforce once more, so a young boy was born in the Ordona Province south of Hyrule.
 
The time soon came where the Gerudo king came to castle town and met the king and young 13-year-old princess, Zelda XIII. Zelda saw evil and desire for the two Triforce pieces that resided at the castle under special protection. The young princess came up with a plan to shatter the Triforce of Wisdom into 8 different pieces and scatter them into the underground labyrinths in the Death Mountain region. She also planned to have each shard be protected by an ancient monster.

Zelda discussed this plan to her nursemaid Impa, and Impa agreed to the plan. So, they secretly shattered the Triforce of Wisdom into 8 shards and scattered it throughout the underground labyrinths. Once they did, they quickly traveled from the castle and tried to reach the bay where a ship was waiting to take them to Calatia. The ship never received its precious cargo.

On the way, Zelda and Impa were ambushed by Ganondorf and a group of Moblins and Bokoblins. Impa escaped, but Zelda stayed in captivity and quickly requested Impa to find the hero to find the shards of the Triforce of Wisdom. Impa came to the small village in the Ordona Province for safety and was discovered by Bokoblins. When she was almost killed, a 14-year-old boy saved her and killed the Bokoblins.

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" RESULTS! and CCC#2!

THE RESULTS ARE FINALLY HERE!

I am very sorry for the *ahem* 2 week delay. I've been very busy with school and things, so it's been hard to find the time to judge the pieces. But I've done it now, finally!

We've had some fantastic compositions, ranging from full orchestral to guitar-and-vocals pieces. All have been unique and brilliant in their own way, and it's been a real pleasure listening to all of them.

So, the winner will be announced below, and also in RSA, and you can read the feedback on your own piece in the google docs file. There are also a few winners for different categories, so check to see if your name is there.




THE WINNER IS: @David Dinh - "The Watzmann"
Wow. Just wow. Sounds very much like something from a movie. Beautifully orchestrated, with some fantastic writing for the string section especially. The melody beginning bar 26 is lovely, and harmonically, the piece is fantastic. Also the cannon in bars 46-57 is really nice.


Winner Categories:

Most Original/Interesting take on the task:
@lilianialoy - "Spirit of the Watzmann"

Best Orchestration:
@David Dinh - "The Watzmann"

CCC#2

So given the success of this competition, I think it makes sense to do another one. However, I want you opinion on a few things before I announce it officially. If you could please take the time to fill in this quick questionnaire, I would really appreciate it.

Transcription of "Memories of Green" from the Chrono Trigger original sound track; I need help!

Transcription is here: https://musescore.com/user/30856753/scores/5598922

I am quite sure that this transcription is correct, "note wise"; however, several things are missing:

* there is a tremolo effect on the flute which I do not want (I don't know how this can be removed, if possible at all);
* I cannot emulate the fade out of sustained notes on either the flute part or the strings part, but then note that I am using 3.0.5, it is supposedly fixed in 3.1.x which I haven't tried yet;
* the reverb effect on the piano part is missing as well. And again, I don't know how to do it or, in fact, whether it is possible at all.

Comments welcome! I love this piece, and personally I think it is ripe for an orchestral transcription transitioning to the main theme with just a half tone adjustment...
