Mother Earth is my life project. I started orchestrating this a few years ago, it was actually one of my first digital works.
Although the basic structure is still intact it is now updated with new articulations and new rendering. It is not even close to Spitfire, more like an improved Garritan.
The piece is narrative, depicting life on earth, starting with the creation. For this reason there is also a movie, a primitive one made from freeware, just to illustrate the main ideas.
It is not meant to be a finished project, although it could be thought so considering the ending. If you choose to watch the movie, you are welcome to propose a continuation of the story.
When composing there has been an interplay between music and the scientific events as they happened according to Darwin. As my profession is connected to natural sciences this project has been a nice connection between that and my music. There has been a mutual inspiration.
