In the Face of Adversity
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission which launched on 11th April 1970, we've put together 2 new videos featuring the launch sequence from the 1995 movie.
For the first time, we've synchronised the final Sibelius file to the original picture.
Using the surround mix from the DVD, as much of the original music has been dialled out as possible to show how well a good Sibelius/Noteperformer file can sound "in situ".
Special thanks to Cody McVey for his help with producing the beat map for this mammoth cue.

License to Sit Still
We're still under lockdown conditions, but that doesn't mean we're resting on our laurels here at CSMP with two new major licensed suites in development. Anyone who has visited our Facebook page recently has no doubt spotted the first of these. We're pleased to announce that a new suite from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe will soon be available to purchase, featuring six cues from Harry Gregson-Williams's beautiful and energetic score. This arrangement is as close to the original recording score as possible, featuring full film orchestra and choir.
If you'd be interested in purchasing a score and parts set for your orchestra, we will be putting up a pre-order page very soon.
We'll tell you about the second suite very soon. It's still not a Bond score (we just like teasing it in the blog post titles!) but seeing as "No Time To Die" was due for release tomorrow (now postponed), here's a little something from John Barry's "You Only Live Twice" to mark the occasion.
