"Independence" - Emotional Orchestral Music

"Independence" - I composed, orchestrated and programmed this music in Logic Pro. It was written for a Malaysia Airlines Merdeka 2005 television commercial (TVC) for Merdeka Day commemorating the independence of Malaysia from British rule.

One of the tracks from Alan Sylvestri's "Forrest Gump" soundtrack was given to me as a reference track from an advertising agency - they loved it so much they asked me to compose something as close as possible without infringing copyright.
