Michael Barry recorded several new pieces for orchestra at Hollywood Scoring's debut Open Orchestra Sessions at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Brothers Studios. In speaking about the inspiration for his first piece - VINTAGE NEWSREEL - Michael writes, "I've always liked those old sounding newsreel music tracks from the 1940's cinema - so I wrote one for our open Orchestra session at Hollywood Scoring." Michael also notes that this piece was recorded in 13 minutes from " 'music on stand' to 'finish,' " an impressive feat considering the level of difficulty and lack of click track.
