Hi guys,

I know Synthestration is officially over, but I'm still trying to catch up with the work I had not done (at the time it was too difficult for me, on top of other classes).

Last class, I lent Ed my only copy of the sketches (Farewell to the King and Bucket Race), but forgot to get it back from him, and am now unable to finish my version.

Could anyone scan a copy of theirs and send it to me, or bring a copy to Film Scoring I today?
I would greatly appreciate it. My email is

Thanks again.

Here's the best I could do with my tracks:

Film Scoring I:
Rat Race Cue

I posted it to my myspace music page (non-film scoring related).
Serenade for String Quintet

Anyone else pick up their CDs yet? Some mixing was definitely called for in order to get it to sound a bit better.

Robot From HELL!!

What the heck. Bruce Broughton made this as difficult as possible just to mess with us. Case in point: Violin I @ mm. 88 & 89. It's the same measure repeated but he uses D# instead of Eb the second time for no apparent reason. On top of that, doesn't measure 89 look like the strings have 4 beats? It should be 3/4 there. UGH!!!!

Rat Race

I'm having a hard time seeing the "western" in this clip. Anybody else? The actual clip for this scene bounces back and forth between a waltz and an opera.

FTP question

Hi everyone.

I updated Transfer, the program I use to best access and download from Ed's FTP, and somehow lost all the user info I had saved in my favorites. I can't remember the site name, or the password Ed gave us (was it UCLA?) and would appreciate it if someone could send these to me so I can access the files needed for our assignments.
Thanks for your help.


Synthestration . . . .

I know this is a dumb question, but what's the assignment for this week?

I know the "Robots" cue is due in the last class-- when is "Ice Age" supposed to be finished? What about the one-line sketch-- is that for this week?
