This little piece of music is intended as a parody of military recruitment ads. As such it lasts exactely one minute (just like a tv-spot) and needs one narrator to speak the text. The idea behind it: What would happen, if the Sith (the really bad guys in the Star Wars universe) would recruit people for their wars? They certainly would think that THEY are the good guys…

Technical notes: I wrote my "March of the Sith" first to get an "evil" melody, then took that melody and turned it into a "we are the good guys"-theme. The pace is very fast and there is a constant switching between scales and rythms to underscore the text (and imaginary pictures). I had much fun composing this not-so-serious piece of music and I hope you'll have fun with it, too!

Here ist the narrator text for those who want to read along:


(With a dark voice; Lurid:)

Our constantly growing armada is always in need of skilled folks… LIKE YOU!

Join us, 'cause only we can offer you THIS level of military education! (slight pause)

Plus, WE fight for a cause: We want to wipe that jedi scum out of this galaxy!

Join our infantry and help us invade planets infested by jedi. Join our flying corps and lear how to bomb their planets, shoot their fighters, and generally…. (low voice) wipe them out! (regular voice:) If you're skilled enough, you can rise through the ranks and even end up with an own star destroyer under YOUR command!

So join us! There are still many fights to fight but in the end, victory will be ours!


Update: I'm so happy about the 130 hits I got in the last year! So I updated the score, made a ton of corrections and even uploaded a new mp3 with really good samples. I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
