Liner Notes: 

Skirmish Theme: "BRIGHT STAR"
by corinne54

Didn't have any lyrics come to mind, nor did I feel like using my synthvox.
So I just searched my sounds and looked for ones that had "star" in the name, and used only those.
Found a vocal sample and chopped it down to "to the stars above", then found another simple one just saying "stars". Added fx and stuff.
The drum kit I used had "star" in the name, too, so cool. Just happened to be an 80s kit. Works for me. Made a simple ballad-ish drum pattern.
Just did twinkly, bright airy stuff with all the sounds and kept it simple and light so I could meet the time limit. 8 minutes over, my most successful skirmish all year.
Its short and I didn't have time to do an intro or outro, but its a serviceable track.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I don't know how people put together multi-layered musical elements in such a quick time frame, but you obviously know what you're doing! Interesting to hear how it evolved. It's dreamy and has good energy. Nicely done!

feel good vibe to this - love the box samples you elected to use - just enough to make the song sparkle like a bright star!

I think you should write by synth names alone more often! hahah
for me this works as a fully fleshed out track........stars...........stars............stars.......fading........don't need more outro than that IMO Smile
kicks in really nice and sudden too.........boom! there's a star Wink
it's great! nice skirmish!

Getting a new appreciation of this type of music, it can be, as in this, very emotive!

Definitely has an 80s feel to it. What a cool way to choose sounds - I love it! It all came together beautifully.

Drum kit sounds awesome, big and oomphy. Really nice arrangement and usage of your "star" sounds.

80’s for sure! Does sound like outer space. I like what you did.
