  1. The Mountain

    I think your vision of "raw and exposed" really shows. I also get a sense of being lost from this piece, almost a sense of loneliness or isolation. I'm not sure if these were things you were going for though. Over all I think its good, keep it up.
  2. RPG Village Theme

    Apologies for replying so late. Thanks Peter! Some interesting ideas, I'll definitely try them out. I actually like the idea of adding some pizzicato. I toyed with the idea of doing something more with the strings actually, but thought it would be safer to go the simpler route and build on it more later if needed than doing something more complicated and having to deconstruct it if it didn't work. I may well revisit the idea though. Thanks again to everyone for the amazing feedback!
  3. This is well done. Makes a rather simple, abstract track a lot more dramatic and epic. As for the criticism you requested. The only thing I can think off is maybe a bit of eq and mastering to help distinguish all the layers a bit more and add some more clarity. That's picking at straws though honestly. Other than that I really don't think it needs anything. Keep up the good work.
  4. RPG Village Theme

    Thanks Maarten! Yeah, perhaps 'Quiet' would have been a better wording over isolation on reflection. The village itself isn't really isolated, it's just not very busy. I was trying to provide a sense of 'day to day' struggle like the people were just 'plodding along' with the tempo and rhythmic stabs. I was going to put a low piano drone in as well to make it a little darker but I decided against it. Maybe I'll add it in and see how it sounds. Currently it's called 'The Winds of Nova' but that might change I believe. It's a one man development team right now too so may take a fair while to see any kind of fruition (if it actually does). I enjoy the challenge/practice all the same though!
  5. Hello wonderful composers, A friend of mine has started working on an rpg game and asked me to come up with some soundtrack ideas. This one is for one of the villages (if you hadn't already guessed from the title). The village is meant to be a small peaceful one but with a Subtle sense of isolation and struggle, so I tried to reflect this in the music. It's just one play through here, but it would loop in-game. Let me know if you have any thoughts or criticisms!
  6. Cowbowz meet Robotz

    Quite an interesting abstract track. It almost makes me think of something you'd hear in an episode of "The Mighty Boosh" (an abstract British comedy if you've never heard of it). The electric guitar sounds great given you used a built-in mic too!
  7. The Wolf and the White

    Thanks very much.
  8. I decided to have a go at writing some music for a video, so I put some footage from my favourite Game of Thrones episode together and wrote some music for it. Let me know what you think! WARNING CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES SEASON 5. https://youtu.be/TVc-5lH_XtQ
  9. I actually just noticed there was another thread for incomplete works, my apologies if I posted this in the wrong place!
  10. An experimental draft following the theme of the last piece I posted and meant to symbolise the first moon mission. If I go ahead with the full piece I aim to add some video footage too, with the first section accompanying the build up and launch and the second section being the astronauts stepping out of the lander on to the moon itself. Perhaps with a sample of the famous quote "That's one small step for a man, One giant leap for mankind" placed between the two sections? Any thought's or ideas welcomed!
  11. The Womb of Man

    Thanks for the replies! I definitely have a lot to learn, both in theory and in practice. @Monarcheon I think many of those issue's were a result of poor planning on my part to be honest, a lot of it was done by ear without really double checking my harmonies etc. definitely an oversight and something I'll note for the future! As far as there being too many ideas squished together. I was concerned that might be an issue, though I decided to risk it as I thought there was a chance it may portray how man is always changing and at many times in conflict with itself. Perhaps that was too much to try to say through this piece alone though. Ultimately, I'm pleased with all the feedback, both positive and constructive for my first attempt. Thanks again for taking the time to listen and to provide that feedback!
  12. This is my first attempt at a full composition. It's titled 'The Womb of Man', referring to earth (makes more sense with the video). All feedback or suggestions are welcome. Hope you enjoy it! https://youtu.be/dOEvmYcq_4w
