DC Stargirl Competition 2021

I would like to share my entry for the contest organized by Spitfire Audio and the Stargirl series. The contest consisted of scoring a small fragment of an episode of the last season of the show.

My approach when approaching the scene was to look for a composition in the classic superhero style (as a personal challenge) and to compose the music for traditional orchestra without any synthesizer or electronic element.

The main difficulty was the level of the sound effects and foley. One of the things to keep in mind is that the music should not conflict with the sounds and dialogues since if this is the case, the volume level of the music will usually be lowered or it will be eliminated directly during the dubbing stage.

In this case, I resorted to different orchestration tricks to avoid conflicting with the mid and low frequencies of the sound but at the same time to give the scene energy and tension.

I leave the video here. I hope you like it.
