Rock Orchestra? - zestycrustacean
Rock Orchestra?

     I've always liked the music done by Bear McCreary for the new Battlestar Galactica television series, in large part because of his ecclectic mixing of modern instrumentation (electric guitars, etc) with classically inspired music and good vocals.  This is generally the same reason why I like the music done by Brian Tyler for the recent remake of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine.  I've always wondered if it were possible to organize rock instruments en masse alongside a conventional orchestra, and what music that fully integrated the two types of instrumentation into a seamless whole would sound like.  If it sounds as interesting as I imagine it could, then I think it might serve very well in scifi soundtracks, especially those with a space-opera bent to them (if they made a movie out of, say, Larry Niven's Ringworld or even a cinematic version of one of the Uplift novels by David Brin for example).
