For years I have dreamed of making a submission to Overclocked Remix, and I'm finally trying to make it happen. This is only a half-baked draft right now, I want to expand it to be around five minutes or so. It isn't orchestral by any means, but whatever, the original material is now a classic in virtual orchestration, so that should count for something.

The working title is The Blacksmith Forged Magical Horns, but I'm open to other suggestions Big Grin

I'm using a combination of Virtual Playing Orchestra, Versilian Studios Community Edition, No Budget Orchestra (for the saxophones), and DrumGizmo's DRS kit.

Bonus points to the first person who names the original material (it shouldn't be too hard).
I am not familiar with the original material and I cannot comment on your creativity however I like what you did with all those free libraries. My guess is that you are rearranging a famous melody in a different style? I like the swing band vibe, especially the drums that are very nicely done and deserve a solo!
Hahaha, that's lovely Michael! WWI-themed Warcraft? Big Grin

Yes! I was actually going for a 1920s sound, but so far it is turning out a little bit more like ragtime, so WWI is a good description.

Thanks. After sharing this with a few people, I realized that it was a little bit presumptuous to assume that everybody would recognize it. Really you have to be a certain generation that spent hours and hours of youth playing Warcraft 2. For reference, here's the original:
