    The Philosopher's Stone - For Your Listening Pleasure

    If I don't write constantly, the writing muscle gets weak. I wasn't into saving and sharing these ideas in the past. But WTF, why not? So I present The Philospher's Stone.

    This is a somewhat minimalist film score idea for synths and orchestra. I was thinking sci-fi, you may have a different feeling listening to it:

    I wanted to work through my contract analysis tasks with this in the background. Great ambience and mood. Now I want to drop weird guitar tracks on top of it instead of work.

    I'm assuming I was the only one who expected a cover of the Harry Potter theme...?

    I've never seen a Harry Potter movie -- there's a philosopher's stone in it?

    It was the first book / movie in the series (although it was released as "Sorcerer's Stone" in the U.S.).

    In the UK it was called the Philosopher's Stone. I guess in the US a sorcerer is scarier than a philosopher.
