    I am a 19 year old from Perth, Australia. I've been composing on and off for around a couple years now and I'm trying to improve everywhere I can but that can be difficult without criticism from other's. So please, tell me what you think about my music and I'll do my best to take it on board. :)

    Hey, I'm not 100% sure what this genre of song is, I'd love it if someone could let me know because I want to try produce a bit more in this style. Normally I compose orchestral soundtrack sort of stuff but I think it is good to be able to branch out and produce in all sorts of styles not only for the ability to reach a wider range of applications but because I can learn more about other techniques and technology which I could apply across a range of genres. Anyway this is the first sort of composition I've made outside of my usual genre and hopefully it actually sounds different, not just the same with different instruments haha. Let me know all the criticism you have because I am so new to this and I need all the help I can get! Cheers.
  2. Hey it's been ages since my last post but i decided to get a bit more back into composing and I love sharing things with you guys on here so hopefully you all can have a listen and give me your thoughts. Cheers https://soundcloud.com/benmaiermusic/the-crimson-garden
  3. @DFox Thanks mate, I used the EWQL gypsy sound library it's a hell good library
  4. Cheers @Sepharite and @nguerrero, it's great to hear you liked it. I agree it should probably be longer but my brain stopped working and I couldn't think of anything else to add for the life of me so now it's only 1:30 :/
  5. @LostSamurai Jeez that was quick. Thanks for your response, that's a relief that it fits the setting :')
  6. Hey people, This one is only a short track but I was trying to match the setting of a busy airport. Im not too sure how effective it is because I've listened to it way too much and cant really tell anymore haha but I would love your feedback :) Cheers guys
  7. @markstyles Thats a good point with the EQing. I think i still have a bit to learn on the mastering part so thanks for your feedback :)
  8. @Arkh @Slazeus Thankyou for the kind words :) Im glad you enjoyed it. Im also wondering how you react to replies and content coz i cant find anywhere on this to do it haha.
  9. Hey people would love some feedback on this track :) please criticize the crap out of it if you want - anything is welcome. Thanks guys, your input has shaped my composing more than i can express and I appreciate and value every word of it.
  10. Dude is this live or do you just have an incredible sound library because if so please hook me up hahah ;)
  11. Thanks for the feedback :) Next time I'll try and release the track here first so I can implement the changes.
  12. I recently worked on a soundtrack for a film some uni students were working on. It's my first real attempt at putting music to film and would love to hear how I can improve for the future :) . The youtube link below is for the finished film project but the Soundcloud link is just for the soundtrack on its own ;) cheers! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gaGzgkePho&feature=youtu.be
  13. Hey guys I was trying to create a sort of gypsy/Spanish kinda sounding thing (theres probably a proper style name for it by I don't know it). Have a listen and let me know any ideas or suggestions you might have for it :) cheers!
  14. This is a lil track I chucked together recently and i was trying to create a piece for a moment building in tension. I haven't really done a piece like this one that I've liked too much but this one was the first that kinda worked the best for me. Sooo anyway here it is! Love to know what you guys think :D
  15. Thanks guys :) I'll go have a tinker with it and see what I can do.
