A new twist on Firefly music....
I'm currently in the process of writing an entire album as a "hidden" tribute to Firefly. Each track focuses on one character's point of view. Every single person on here should be able to tell me which song is sung from whose point of view based on title and lyrics alone (which makes me REALLY happy!)
Anyway. The genre is rhythmic/ambient... kind of electronic. So far it's been described as having "Imogen Heap vocals, Shiny Toy Guns/New Order synths, and The Postal Service/Playradioplay beats". Not sure if anybody's into that... but it's what poured out of me this time around.
PLEASE LISTEN: http://soundcloud.com/nopowerintheverse/
This will be updated frequently, but at this very moment the first song is the only one that's completely produced and mixed. The rest are just ideas... but you'll get it! I know you will! You may notice some blatant
Greg Edmonson stuff. :D
I'm really curious to see if this idea could take off in the Firefly community. I'm going to try to get it on TV first (commercials probably). My dream is to get it played on Chuck so Adam Baldwin can hear it. :D
Leave me feedback!
EDIT: I'm completely open to album name suggestions! Although, I'm heavily leaning towards "tragic space dementia". Hahaha!

Greg Edmonson, with new music! (XPOSTED)
I gave Greg Edmonson a call the other day to catch up, and he told me of some great news. :) He's finished with his latest project! He'd told me a little about it earlier in the year, but now that it's done and ready for the public I can let the news out. *grin*Greg has finished his musical project for Sony games... Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
It will be released November 20th, 2007 (that's gorramn soon). He wrote the music for it, of course. He said that they were great folks to work with, that they gave him a lot of leeway with the sound of the score. At the link above you can get to the trailer for the game, and listening to it... yep, you can hear Greg in there. :)
So get the word out, Browncoats - iffen you're a Greg Edmonson fan, check out Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Here's a link to an interview with Naughty Dog where they talk about working with Greg
. Here's a snippet: The music in Uncharted was entirely composed by this guy named Greg Edmonson who also did all of the composition for the music in Firefly the series and we're all really big fans of that series and something that really stood out for us was the music and the really eclectic international wide variety of instrumentation that he used.

A Call To Action!
A message from fithelere
We live in exciting times. I'm sure you know that Joss Whedon hinted that Universal would be taking a close look at Serenity Collector's Edition sales, and that Alan Tudyk recently let it slip that there are rumblings about a sequel at Universal. Now is the time to let our voices be heard.
That's why I'm writing to you to endorse the wavecard writing campaign recently proposed over on The Signal forum:http://fireflydvd.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3794
Basically, the idea is quite simple. Quantum Mechanix sells packs of really shiny 'Verse-themed postcards. If you haven't seen 'em, check 'em out. They're pretty and funny: http://www.quantummechanix.com/Blue%20Sun%20Travel%20Wavecards.html
So the plan is to order sets of these cards, write a note asking (politely) for Serenity sequel on each one, and send them to Universal at this address:
100 Universal City Plaza
Universal City, CA 91608
Attn: Donna Langley
Attn: Jon Gordon
(BTW, there's some uncertainty on The Signal forum about the attn names, so if anyone has more up to date info, please don't keep it to yourself. In any case, we know it's the right address, and the postcards are sure to get someone's attention.)
Why is this letter writing campaign different from those of the past?
First off, timing. We know Universal is on the verge of greenlighting the Big Damn Sequel.
Second off, Universal Licensed Products. In the film industry, money talks, so by sending these wavecards, which are official licensed products, we're putting money in Universal's pocket and underscoring the potential for lots more profit.
Third, this time, we're all behind it. Only you can make sure that we do the impossibleâ€”again. When all the Browncoats stand united, there's not a power in the 'Verse that can stop us.
Let's make it happen, folks,

Okay, I know I post here more than other people, but whatever, I'm the mod, I can do that.
I'm looking for sheet music! I'm trying to find sheet music for Inside the Tam House (piano AND violin), to no avail. Google gives me a fat load of nothing.
Anyone know where I can find any?
Other songs would be nice too, but I'm mostly looking for Inside the Tam House. Current Mood: frustrated

Hey, all! Quick question.
I'm trying to pick out all the instruments used in the Firefly opening song. I can pick out the fiddle, and I think a guitar, but it's been too damn long since I was in orchestra to pick up anything else. =/ Ideas?
Also, sheet music would be swell, if anyone knows where I can find any. :D I already have sheet music for the fiddle part.
|Sunday, May 14th, 2006|
I am in love with the music of Firefly. I want to find some western/fiddle/acoustic guitar/cowboy kind of music - instrumentals only (and NOT country music). I was watching that Texas Ranch House show on PBS (like survivor - cowboy style) and the music they played reminded me so much of Firefly music.
You know what I mean? That fiddle/guitar-centric kind of music.
I neeeeed it.
Can anybody help me out?

"Earth that was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many. We found a new solar system, dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Each one terra-formed a process taking decades, to support human life, to be new earths. The Central Planets formed the Alliance. Ruled by an interplanetary parliament, the Alliance was a beacon of civilization. The savage outer planets were not so enlightened and refused Alliance control. The war was devastating, but the Alliance's victory over the Independents insured a safer universe. And now everyone can enjoy the comfort, and enlightenment of your civilization." -Teacher, Serenity
Still Flying - A Firefly/Serenity RPG
We Aim to Misbehave.What is SF?
SF, which is the abbreviation of Still Flying, is a "Firefly" and Serenity
RPG based solely on the world created by Joss Whedon, maker of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Even though you may not like Buffy and Angel (I don't), you may find that Firefly is something that you instantly fall in love with. And if not love at first sight, give it a chance and I can guarantee that you'll love it. Even watching the movie proves to be addictive regardless if you saw the TV show or not. The unique setting, story and characters set this particular fandom from everything and everyone else, which makes it one of the best and most beloved series ever to be aired on the television. Even after the cancellation of the show, the Firefly fans were not willing to give up until the story was complete, until Serenity the movie was released in September of 2005.What is the setting?
We are currently setting SF after the TV show, so that would be after "Objects In Space". It would be good that you watch the TV show before joining, but you can probably get enough information from the several websites out there dedicated to this show as well as watching the movie. We are going to go through the plot of the movie, but it will be awhile before we do that, so currently we're just writing up our own 'episodes' of the second season of Firefly. Anything goes for this board.What kind of characters do you allow?
We allow OC (original characters) and canon (character that are already set such as Malcolm Reynolds, Simon Tam and Jayne Cobb.) The canon characters we are most in need of are: Malcolm Reynolds
, Hobah Washburne
, Shepard Derria Book
, Saffron, Jubal Early
, Gabriel and Regan Tam, Patience and Monty Reynolds. But if you are not interested in any of these characters, you are more than welcome to come up with some original characters. We do recommend that you take on a canon character before applying for an original character, but it is not mandatory. Currently, the original characters we are in need of are some mercenaries and an engineer for The Yankee, which is captained by Blank Sheet of Paper's character, Siobhan Quinn. Some alliance-affiliated character would be nice along with one or two reavers.Good Points to SF?
It's Firefly, what other good points do you need? ;) No, well, for one, we have a steady number of members still coming. The members we have now are just as dedicated as the staff and we continue to come up with new ideas to make the board even better than it already is now. To go along with that, you¡'re not rushed into posting, not pressured into posting more often and you¡'re welcome with open arms from all the members of the board, not just the staff. We have some good plot points happening and we're open for boards plot to happen at any time. This RPG is also meant to help improve people on their writing if they feel they are unsatisfactory to begin with. We are very lax here and we will give anyone a chance as long as you put in an application and as long as you show even a sliver amount of dedication towards the board. We have gold on this board and continue to have it, though we may have a setback for just a few days, so that should always be a bonus.Bad Points to Still Flying?
There aren¡'t really. As far as I know, all the members of the board get along very well; we¡'re like another family. There are some members of the board that are currently inactive, but they post when needed and therefore aren't striped of their roles or staff positions. The only other thing wrong with SF is that we definitely need some new members, because more than half of this board's life runs in the hands of the members. They are what makes the board what the board is.Why Join Still Flying?
We give experience to newcomers to both roleplaying in general as well as roleplaying on a message board. We help shape a writer¡¦s technique and improve on the style. We wish to unite all fans of Firefly/Serenity to one place and express their love for the fandom through their writing and their roleplaying. The purpose of Still Flying is simply to reunite the fans that were spread about after the ending of the popularity, to meet new people who are just like us and simply to just have fun. What more fun is there than to be like our favorite Firefly characters? And even if you are new to the Firefly fanbase, you will find that you will automatically fall in love with the writing, the people and the board, as it has been beforehand with other Firefly boards. And we, the staff, will not let SF end if the popularity begins to fall again. Our loyalty is to the board and to the members of SF. You can trust us. The film and books are too much of a revolution to the entire world to go unnoticed as it has when the popularity dead.
Join SF because it's your gut, intuition, or whatever you want to call it. Join SF because you're a fan of Firefly/Serenity. Join SF because you want to write. Join SF for meeting new people. Join SF because you want to continue the fanbase of Firefly and Serenity. Join SF because you love Firefly/Serenity.You can never stop the signal.

Hey all! I have a question for you. I've looked everywhere but haven't found an answer.
This is mostly a cell phone question, I guess... but I'm the mod, I can be a little off topic! ;D Anyway... I have a Verizon phone... don't know much about it beyond that. Anyway, I want the Fruity Oaty Bar song as a ringtone! :D How can I get it onto my phone?
And how the hell can I tell what type of Verizon phone I have? D: It's on my fiance's roomie's plan, and they just... gave me the phone. XD;

Songs in the key of FF
A collection of songs that share the same title as our favorite Outer Space Western...American Music Club - Firefly
American Music Club's classic 3rd album 'California' begins with this breezy country-tinged song. It's probably one of the most uplifting and pretty songs the band ever recorded. It remained a staple of their live repitoire and also appears on Mark Eitzel's solo album "Songs of Love Live"Tortoise - Firefly
This evocative soundworld was created by Tortoise - a legendary band with a legendary purpose. This can be found on their 2001 release 'Standards' available on ThrilljockeyHeavens to Betsy- Firefly
Before Corin Tucker took over the world with Sleater-Kinney, she was the bassist in Kill Rock Stars allumnus Heavens to Betsy. Originally released on a oop 7", this rockin' little number can be now found on the comp cd "Some Songs" available from KRS
