The Proxima Incident

For Symphony Orchestra

Uploaded on Jan 5, 2018

August 24th, 2016. A day that humanity wishes to forget. Old-Earth Astronomers announced the discovery of a rocky world orbiting inside the habitable zone of Proxima Centauri. Years of speculation turned to decades, and decades to centuries. On the 150th anniversary of Proxima B's discovery, humanity launched its first probe capable of traveling faster than light, an event that was widely celebrated by the Earth's population.

In two months, blurry images began to appear at the Earth's scientific station on Diana, a trans-Netpunian planet in the Solar System. Early reports showed a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, and the blurry pictures showed what looked like possible civilizations on the surface. The probe transmitted its last message immediately before an impact with a small asteroid.

A year later, a tactical ship equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and warp drive departed from the space dock on Diana, and set course for Proxima B.

A month later, the ship arrived at its destination. Scans confirmed the probe's earlier readings, but scans of the area revealed no sign of the probe. Detailed scans located a city with the diameter of Mercury, but further scans could not locate any life signs.

The crew decided to make an expedition, and they landed their ship in the center of the city.

Once they leave the ship, they find the city completely empty. The explorers fan out to gather some more readings, but one by one they disappear.


The fifteen explorers wake to find themselves in a dark room, surrounded by bipedal aliens the size of gorillas. They need to escape, but will they?

(This is a combined score of two previous compositions.)

Chuck Norris is an alien in disguise WHERE ELSE DOES HE GET HIS SUPERPOWERS

Kind of sound like the Princess Bride song there for the first half of the song!
I've heard that before! Is there a YouTube recording of this song so I can hear the resemblance for myself? =D
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oqWLpLv3vos&list=PLB49289EFCB02D7BC&index=6 The cliffs of insanity, and The Swordfight, snd one more I can't remember
Holy cow! Your stuff is amazing! Thanks so much for posting!
Your skills are constantly improving! Very good!
Thank you! That means a lot right now. =)
It's more than that. If you listened all the way through, you would have recognized that it is a new piece entirely. The two parts are reuploads, yes, but since they were based on the same theme, the two of them put together create a very new piece that adds to the individual stories of the both of them. =)
Oh okay =) I didn't mean to sound accusing or anything.. Sorry :(
Please don't worry about it! I'm fine! I didn't even think you were being accusative!
i dont know wy i didn't see this before but this sounds great i like it, keep growing! :D
The mixed meter is really cool! Nice job Elliot :D
Would you believe i found this from the tags?
Cause i did, and im scared
I feel like I've heard this before.

But it was really good. :)
You have, but now the two are combined into one. =) I felt like it created a nice storyline across the board.
Why can't school just not exist ;_; I want to be able to make amazing things like this....

My parents be like "no Pro until college apps are done". The sad part is I know they're right lol

Ugh I feel ya... School is rough at times lol
Lol at first I thought the description was actually a thing people believed (until I got to the gorilla part. xD) I wondered why I had never heard of it! XD XD Awesome song!! 😁😁
Thank you! All places in the description are real or theoretical places though. If you Google Proxima B, or planet nine, you'll see. 😉
Chuck Norris get's his superpowers from being a master Z Fighter more incredible than Guko. He has achieved the highest key possible, and that position is now named after him: Super-Sayain Norris. He is in fact not an alien. He spontaneously generated on earth from pure awesomeness.
I can imagine space in the first five measures. Nice way to use augmented and diminished chords.
Ah, I see you've made a song about me on the day before finals. *Reads Description* But I was sure you were trying to make it sound at around 2:23 like my parents were coming up the stairs to tell me to study...

Seriously though, great job! I love how the music goes so well with the story!

It seems that the sheet music and audio don't line up exactly. Is that just my computer? If not, I just wanted to notify you about it. :)
Hahahaha! =D Just wait until college where you have no one to tell you to study! :O
I am aware of the audio problem. I will attempt to fix it later.
Thank you for your kind words!
I'm pretty sure it's a problem with Musescore (the music and audio not lining up) and not your computer. It happens to me to, on every song I listen to on here :O
It sounds like a 60-80s horror film. I absolutely love it <3
