NOTES: So remember that MAGfest auction thing I did a year ago? Yeah, well, due to a lot of really shitty circumstances, I was only able to work on the songs the winners gave to me recently. This is the second of two songs, and it’s the Main theme from Solstice. I also entered this for the DoD April 2012 competition. While I did this is in my common Symphonic Metal style, the arrangement is actually pretty conservative. The original song is nearly 3 minutes long, so I didn’t have to add much, and most of the melodies are exactly as they are in the original tune. The goal basically became “make Tim Follin’s song come to life.” Most of the additions are in the accompanying instruments. By the way, the naming scheme for these two MAGfest uction/April 2012 DoD songs originally wasn’t deliberate, but then when I saw the word “Kastlerock” in a game summary about Solstice, I had to do it.
