This original composition is based on a wildlife research study which took place in Malaysia's largest national park, the Taman Negara. Researchers embarked on an expedition in the jungle tracking that wildest of wild animals, the tiger. Despite spending nearly three years in the rainforest, the researchers never saw a single tiger, hence the "ghost" aspect of the title. The composer's intent in this composition is to take you on an expedition tour and emulate the experience of the jungle. The work is characterized with mysterious melodic themes intertwined with exciting bold flashes of sound. Ghosts of Taman Negara is an embracing and emotional addition to the young band literature from the pen of Victor López.

    I was a student conductor for Ghosts of the Taman Negara in our middle school band. The piece was fairly simple but it sounded really nice. The audience loved it. I personally like this style of music so it was a real pleasure to conduct it for the school concert...

    . It is a good piece of music I highly recommend it.
