S o l s t i c e | MuseScore's Largest Collab | Mvt. I

Uploaded on Nov 1, 2016

In July 2016 I founded a project that would be the first of its kind here on MuseScore. A collaboration between more than 12 people. At first we called it 'The 12-Person Collab', however we soon developed a new name for ourselves: 'Composers Collective'.

Over the last 4 months we have worked endlessly on a piece so epic that I feel incredibly privileged to be showing you. And here is the first part of that. The first movement in our cinematic suite: 'Solstice'.

I am so lucky to have been able to do this with 6 of the greatest composers I could possibly hope to work with. Thanks to qqqant, The Modern Songmaker, impartial_tensornator, Alplexle, TheNightreader and oboestyle for taking me on this journey.

I would also like to thank our many supporters who helped us along the way. Kudos to Pikabata, Tranman, Airik Daily, Origami2, johnnyboyathan, LucasHMusic, Bomb from Bomb and Kou, Falcon2184, jaweien, Mollymawk and voxaurorae for their awesomeness.

Of course I have to congratulate also the people like Alplexle, who produced the amazing coverart for this piece, or Bomb, who developed the audio in a way that made it even more brilliant.

And thanks to the crowd of MuseScore for your never-ending encouragement along the way. I've received 2 emails in the last week saying how excited people are about this :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, sit down and enjoy the show. I give you...

I wonder if it was alplexle who did that piano solo at the beginning... Lit score though
No I was being sarcastic. That sounds so much like ones he does in his other songs. Its cool though
We should get a second movement going, even if it has to be with completely new people. (hint hint)
RookWizard! I have an idea! This is the largest collab on Musescore. Sooo... let's break it! It can be the second movement! Do you want to get on board?
Hey Jackie,
We've actually tried to get the second movement up and running a few times in the past, but it's never really worked out - most likely this piece will just remain the one movement forever I guess :/
This is absolutely AMAZING!!
Dang, how did I never comment before? I've had this favourited for a while...
Since Rook accidentally deleted the videoscore here's the mp3 file for your enjoyment
Thankyou q! I'll reupload the score sometime soon as well, with the video score.
WOAH this is UNBELIEVABLE! You guys did a really awesome job on this! I'm really sorry I couldn't finish the collab with you guys, just a lot of things came up and I had to bail out. (I didn't have many good ideas anyway). Keep working hard and I can't wait for what is in store for us in the future! (I listened to the musescore audio :DD)

God Bless All,
why is the video unavailable ._ .
I sort-of-accidentally deleted all of my old videos. I forgot that it would stop the videoscores from working :/
I was listening to this while reading the comments, and then I went to the 2nd page of comments and it stopped... NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
This is AMAZING!!!!!!! You all did a fantastic job!!!
You are obviously better than me. I have been composing for about 10 months and I am no where near your potential. :(
aw, don't feel bad @cheesyanimations, he just has a little more of the will of fire XD
I don't feel bad. If he is better than me, it doesn't mean I'm bad. If he is older tan, I will def not feel bad. Do you feel pity?
no, your right, just because someone was born with a little more talent than someone else doesn't mean that the other person is bad. It just means that they must work harder to achieve their goal of coming out on top!
Exactly. I still have really good scores! Most of them are in the spotlight if you wanted to check 'em out btw
Awww that's not true...
Keep trying and you can get anywhere you like with your music :D
Yep. If you ever looked at my spotlight those are the songs near you're potential. Idk its not bad if you're better cuz maybe my expectations are higher for u on musescore. If you want to go on my profile, go right ahead! If you don't want to bother with me well...... go right ahead
Awww that's not true...
Keep trying and you can get anywhere you like with your music :D
Where was the sound font taken from?
We used General User GS.

I don't know if I myself can remember all of the sections and who wrote them, but I think it went a bit like this:

I wrote the opening bit and also the pizzicato strings bit with viola solo.

I think qqqant did the low strings and the first piano solo? And also the piccolo solo?

And then Alplexle and qqqant and Modern Music Productions did the brassy bit I think? And then impartial and qqq did the glock and vibes duet? And Nightreader?

And I'm pretty sure Alplexle worked on the second piano solo...

And then I did the pizzicato bit. And then oboe style did the fantasy like flutes bit. And then qqq did the glock and vibes again.

And then pretty much all of us worked on the encore.

By the way, all of this is just guesswork, I could be completely wrong. Also, we all edited each other's parts, so there isn't really any 'mine' or 'yours' going on :)
The glock sounds more alplexy
1000% sure qqqant had something to do with that piano
This is completely amazing. Love the horn solos, and the jazz scales in the piano throughout the piece. It's too bad that the bassoon part is so boring though.
