Missing Malaysia Airlines - Flight MH370 - MAS



Our hopes and prayers are with MH370 and their loved ones.  This music was written for a Malaysia Airlines Merdeka 2005 television commercial (TVC) for Merdeka Day commemorating the independence of Malaysia from British rule.

FACTS:
- Total Passengers: 239
- Aircraft: Boeing 777-200ER
- Departed Kuala Lumpur: 12:41am on 8th March 2014
- Scheduled to arrive in Beijing at 6:30am
- Air traffic controllers lost track of the jetliner at 1:30am between Malaysia and Vietnam
- All Boeing 777 commercial jets have black box recorders
- There are no signs of wreckage
- Apparently there were two Iranian illegals on board using fake passports
- Five passengers didn't get on the plane even though they checked in
- Two-thirds of the passengers on flight MH370 were Chinese

Was it terrorism, a mechanical failure or something else?

"Independence" - I composed, orchestrated and programmed this orchestral music in Logic Pro.

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

Merdeka: "The effort for independence was spearheaded by Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, who led a delegation of ministers and political leaders of Malaya in negotiations with the British in London for Merdeka, or independence along with the first president of the Malayan Chinese Association (MCA) Tun Dato Sir Tan Cheng Lock and fifth President of Malaysian Indian Congress Tun V.T. Sambanthan. Once it became increasingly clear that the Communist threat posed during the Malayan Emergency was petering out, agreement was reached on February 8, 1956, for Malaya to gain independence from the British Empire. However, for a number of logistical and administrative reasons, it was decided that the official proclamation of independence would only be made the next year, on August 31, 1957, at Stadium Merdeka (Independence Stadium), in Kuala Lumpur.

On the night of August 30, 1957, crowds gathered at the Royal Selangor Club Padang in Kuala Lumpur to witness the handover of power from the British. Prime Minister-designate Tunku Abdul Rahman arrived at 11:58 pm and joined members of the Alliance Party's youth divisions in observing two minutes of darkness. On the stroke of midnight, the lights were switched back on, and the Union Flag in the square was lowered. The new Flag of Malaya was raised as the national anthem Negaraku was played. This was followed by seven chants of 'Merdeka' by the crowd. Tunku Abdul Rahman gave a speech hailing the ceremony as "greatest moment in the life of the Malayan people".

On the morning of Saturday, August 31, 1957, the festivities moved to the newly-completed Merdeka Stadium. More than 20,000 people witnessed the ceremony, which began at 9:30 am. Those in attendance included rulers of the Malay states, foreign dignitaries, members of the federal cabinet and citizens. The Queen's representative, the Duke of Gloucester presented Tunku Abdul Rahman with the instrument of independence. Tunku then proceeded to read the Proclamation of Independence, which culminated in the chanting of 'Merdeka' seven times with the crowd joining in. The ceremony continued with the raising of the National Flag of Malaya accompanied by the national anthem being played and a 21-gun salute, followed by an azan call and a thanksgiving prayer in honor of this great occasion.

The formation of the Federation of Malaysia was then announced on September 16, 1963 as Malaysia Day. The nationwide Independence Day celebration is still held on August 31, the original independence date of Malaya, while Malaysia Day was a public holiday only in East Malaysia. However, this has caused some minor discontent among East Malaysians in particular since it has been argued that celebrating the national day on August 31 is too Malaya-centric. In 2009, it was decided that starting 2010, Malaysia Day would be a nationwide public holiday in addition to Hari Merdeka on August 31."
