Wing One, Take Two Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Edx found something cool that we missed from quite a while back: a version of the Wing Commander I main theme updated by WC composer Dave Govett! The original 2003 thread where the piece was posted is available here. You can download the track here (1.4 mb, MP3). The artist says:
This is still a work in progress. I've done all I can on it until I get back from LA in a couple weeks. The march and the slow part are not hooked together yet so there is a small pause between them. I'm not done with it yet and that is only one mic position so the ambience will improve and I still have to work on some articulation. This is still in sketch and composition mode but I like the results with this kind of speed. Thomas helped me with a good technique to smooth out the brass and get the french horns to have more attack with out being so brutal. (right now I layered portato with staccato but instead I'll try portato and sustain.)
Unfortunately, Mr. Govett was unable to finish the project and The Fatman's Wing One album was recently released using the original versions (plus some awesome extras.) Maybe someday!
