  1. Those Who Dare to Dream

    Thanks Maarten! I did agree the end seemed a little incomplete, I've now added an end section. It still needs some tweaking to get it right but I think it's better than before. Yeah it's a pretty crude piano vst I'm using unfortunately, hopefully I'll be able to find someone to perform it eventually though.
  2. I pulled a picture from google and wrote a piano piece I thought fitted the feel of the picture. Feel free to leave your thoughts and feedback. EDIT: The picture wouldn't upload for some reason so I'll leave a link to it here: https://wallpaperscraft.com/download/tamagosho_sky_stars_telescope_night_window_102167/1920x1080 RE-EDIT: I've added a second version with an added end section.
  3. Retro Boss Battle

    Thanks! Yeah I should have added a fade out at the end of that last loop.
  4. Earth Theme (With A Spinning Globe!)

    Yeah I agree with all of the above.. beautiful. I really like music like this that can really resonate with the listener on an emotional level. Great Work!
  5. Jazz track

    Jazz ins't a strong point of mine but I quite like this. I think you've done a good job here, especially given the constraints you placed on yourself to help imitate that improv feel. I think it worked rather well. Nicely done!
  6. The Rite of Spring is a very unique piece of music and it's an area I'm not too well versed in honestly. Many analysts still can't quite make heads or tails of it to this day it seems so as to any methods, there's none I've encountered for this sort of thing. It seems like an experimental area of music in my eyes. I'll post an interesting excerpt I found on the topic at the end of this post. I think it could be an interesting concept to pursue (music is all about experimentation in my eyes) but beyond suggesting conventional methods as in my previous post I'm unaware of any established techniques or methods for achieving multi-key composition of this sort. An interesting post I found on The Rite of Spring: "There were more extreme harmonic experiments in the air - Schoenberg's first atonal works were five years old, and there are chords in Debussy and Richard Strauss as extreme as anything in the Rite. The Rite is clearly not atonal - there are passages in B flat minor, though it is often impossible to say what key the music is in. Careful analysis seems to show that it relies on combinations of evolved modes, like Debussy's whole-tone scale. Prominent, too, is the octatonic, or eight-toned scale, regularly alternating semitones and whole tones that many of Rimsky-Korsakov's pupils so loved, and which gives Firebird such a sumptuous, static, somewhat orientalising flavour. Whatever the technical means, the score has evolved a language which makes perfect, coherent sense on its own terms and defies easy analysis through recurrent themes, chords or even instrumental sounds."
  7. Song of Time

    I think this is great! I imagine this could be a suitable arrangement were they ever to make a film based in the franchise. The percussion and vocals add quite a refreshing upbeat, epic feel to a normally very relaxed piece. Good job here!
  8. Yeah I think generally speaking a piece should have one core Key that applies to all instruments. You can have instruments that are in different keys (like some concert instruments) but these are usually transposed to match and isn't something you have to watch for if you're working from a DAW. I think in place of multiple keys you could try utilising harmonies, counter-melodies and modulation to negate any dissonance and provide depth to a piece.
  9. First off, I can relate to the nerve's and anxiety for a long time I kept the music I wrote to myself but when I did make that leap and start posting to forums/Youtube etc. I learnt what my strengths and weaknesses were, tried my best to address them and went on to surprise myself with what I was capable of. I really like what you're going for in this piece a lot, it really has the potential to be something great! What I would suggest working on is researching keys/scales to help limit that dissonance that persists through the track. This was a problem I had for a while too when I was a couple years into writing, but finding out what notes should and shouldn't be in the track and what chords/scales were there helped massively in avoiding it. It's obvious you have the heart of a talented composer though listening to this, keep at it and don't hesitate to post for advice and feedback!
  10. I like the feel of this a lot, it ends rather abruptly though. You could definitely run with this idea. I've never used Albion One so I can't say first hand, but I've been told it's great. Good work!
  11. I recently lost my entire sample libraries due to a hard drive failure. While I'm in the process of rebuilding them I was left with a single VST plugin called 'retro machines' at my disposal. I thought I'd set myself a little challenge and write something using only this plugin. The result was this 'retro boss battle' style piece. I imagine it being a battle against a computer based being that has drawn you into an illusion/virtual world for the battle. I also threw together a picture on photoshop to help imagine the battle.
  12. Your 12 years of experience really shows in this piece and I can tell you earned those awards you mentioned. I quite like the abstract yet epic feel to his track, Great work here!
  13. Adventures emotional Score

    I like this a lot. I think although you described this as maybe an outro to a tv show, I really think this would fit well in a retro rpg game (a ff, chrono etc.). You nailed the tone of the picture and yes they are indeed called airships. Good job!
  14. Film Music Composition

    This is great! I think you've nailed the orchestration in this track. I like the little areas of dissonance in the strings before they resolve too, it adds a great bit of 'punch' to the feels of the piece. I also like how the 'tone' of the piece kind of battles between a triumphant and sad atmosphere, It hits home how the lone soldier you describe has survived but under very bitter sweet circumstances. At least that was my take away from it. Good job!
  15. This track has a very sinister feel to it that fits your 'evil music' premise rather well. I do think the flute towards the beginning (I think its a flute anyway) is a little out of place as I've always viewed it as quite a 'warm, happy' instrument. That's just a personal opinion though. Its apparent that your improving with each piece you post though, keep it up. Good job!
