    Hey Guys! I'm new here and I'm glad I found this forum. Can't wait to share opinions on composing. I recently took part in the Spitfire Audio | Westworld Composition Competition, where it was needed to create a score for a car chase sequence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKu0-OV1CkQ I am deeply influenced by John Williams ( as a modern film composer), Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Debussy ( as the oldest ones 😉) Did some of you participated as well?

    Been taking the ScoreClub courses during lockdown and I have been trying some of Alain's concepts. Started with this short score: https://www.dropbox.com/s/slp8v1lshrjn9ml/OTL1.pdf?dl=0 Turned it in to this rough mock-up: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hixnckkz8mnyrq9/OTL1.mp3?dl=0 Put it in to Sibelius: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lvhwqm86v79s1b7/OTL - CONCERT SCORE.pdf?dl=0 And here's the Noteperformer: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6kp0licvfo0xt5f/OTL_sib.mp3?dl=0

    I like it. Is it part of a soundtrack to something? If so it would help to know as it would better inform what we might suggest. Personally, I can hear a quieter, contrasting section following with a flute melody supported by a string or harp accompaniment, but that's just me.

    Why, to be created by the artist of course! Why does art need to have a "purpose"? Do clouds or the ocean have a "purpose"? We can fit them inside a chain of events, OK, but they themselves are just acts of nature that don't have a "reason" to be, or a "role" to play. I posit that people's creations work in the same manner, and that asking if it has a role is solely dependent on the person who made the individual work since, as a whole, they're just like a force of nature that doesn't need a reason to be or exist at all, it just does. I mean people can get moved emotionally by a nice looking sunset or any other randomly-generated nature vista, why is art any different? In the end the most important part is the person experiencing the art itself, not the work in a vacuum.
