    Thanks Quinn! Haha, I'm from Norway so I'm pretty used to it 🙂 I'm not quite sure about the title being the best. But that was the feeling a had in the middle of the composition, so that's what the song became to me.

    Thank you, Mark! The ending is a bit abrupt, but I kind of like it. I appreciate that you think it sounds like my own work, though I feel like all I do is copying, borrowing and stealing ideas and techniques from older composers 🙂

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to share a tune I've been working on the last weeks. Tried to make a light and easy theme with elements of something cold or frozen maybe. I know it's very short but I like making these short tunes as a learning tool for improving my orchestration and mixing skills. Any comments?:)

    We're off - orchestral soundtrack

    Thanks! I'm pretty new to composing and would've liked to know where there's room for improvement, both in the arrangement/orchestration and in the mix.
  6. Here is my latest orchestral tune. I was aiming for a sound in between realistic "live" orchestra and cinematic "epic" sound with big drums. I'd love to get some critical reviews of this.

    Thank you for your constructive feedback. 1) I will remember this for my next composition. I'm not 100 % familiar with Musescore yet and I think it's overall a little limited. But I will try to save space. I actually made this one in order to make it play back correctly so I should have made another one just for reading. I know I shouldn't have 6 horn staves.. :) 2) That's funny. I have in fact not heard this soundtrack but it sure is pretty close. Crap... Or maybe I have heard it and my subconsciousness is just tricking me :) I thought someone would say it was too close to Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack, at least rhythmically. And regarding the choir I should have written "stagger/free breathing" in that particular place. It has very helpful, thank you!

    Yes. You can see the instruments on the pdf or in the musescore-link. I guess you would even call it an expanded orchestra because of the contrabassoon? But I'm not sure. I think modern orchestras have a big variability in instrumentation.

    An Epic Adventure

    Hello! This is my first composition since I started learning about orchestration and composing last year. The sounds are directly from Musescore so it isn't great. I started out composing just for the sake of learning but realized that I enjoyed it very much. I spent a lot of time on it and ended up with this. I'm an amateur composer but I hope you'll like it. I'm happy for any kind of feedback. Eirik Gisnås https://musescore.com/gisnaas/an-epic-adventure
