  1. To all who have composed for TV, film, videogames, etc., I'm curious how you found or got the gig. I've composed for 2 films because I connections involved with the productions so I'm curious if this industry is really "it's who you know," or if you have other methods of getting the jobs.
  2. Hey there, We're a small team of two German people that manage the first official voice over for the video game Nehrim. In the progress of casting voice actors and remaking some old textures and designs, we realized how bad some of the sounds and the title music aged. That's why we're looking for people to voluntary assist us. We're in need of composers to help us creating about two types of music: remake of the title song. The melody is set, but we want newer elements to create an immersive sound experience. Original Soundtrack creating an atmospheric and immersive bard song that fits the medieval setting. We're already working on a text, yet aren't creative enough to imagine a fitting melody. That's what we definitely need help with. Sadly we're not able to pay any kind of compensation for your time and effort other than giving credits every time the song is displayed and in the game credits since this is on the basis of a fan project. If you're interested in helping us out, pm this reddit account for further information. In case you want to work with us on these songs, we could keep communicating with discord or the classic e-mail.
  3. I uploaded this score a few months ago but at that time didn't know how to generate an audio file. I have finally figured it out and it is easier for others to hear a piece than look at a score. I have made one change from the original. The first four semi-quavers of the viola (second bar of the Haydn chromatic sixths) have been dropped down. Tell me what you think?
  4. I really like composing and I have many pieces in the work. I mostly like composing for piano but I also made some quartet pieces for strings and woowinds. And I want to gt into orchestral works too. So what books should I get?
  5. Hey guys, just needing some advice on getting into the composing industry Background of me: Got a degree in guitar performance, Jazz/classical/blues/ rock (all rounder pretty much) guitarist who composes a little, decent production skills and loves to mess around with synths. So my question is how did you or the best way to get into composing. I don't really mind what style or what I'm composing for I just want to start composing. If anyone can tell me how to start or even if anyone knows anyone who needs some music composed let me know, or even PM me too. www.minimilitia.mobi www.applock.ooo www.7zip.vip
  6. This is a fan composition for the daedric princess Azura in Skyrim. The composition is inspired by Jeremy Soule. The process of composing began through using the concept art to trigger an emotional response, in which is then translated into a compositional output downloader.vip/ccleaner/ www.happywheels.vip/ vlc.onl/

  8. I have been orchestrating the Pathetique Sonata. I looked on IMSLP and saw no orchestral transcription. And I figured, if I am going to orchestrate a piano sonata, this would be the sonata to orchestrate because it sounds orchestral with all those chords and octaves, even as a piano solo. Here is what I have done for the Introduction: Where there are 2-3 bass and melody lines, use the full woodwinds and strings(viola I have been using so far as a high pitched bass instrument because often, there are either 2 bass lines that sound fuller when the higher one is in octaves(so viola in octaves with the cello) or there are 3 bass lines) Where there are accents in a loud passage, have the tympani do a drum roll Where there are alternating high and low passages, have the low brass(Tuba, and bass and tenor trombones) double the strings so that the woodwinds can play the entire melody. Have the high brass(alto trombone, C trumpet, and French horn) double the high woodwinds in the alternating passages No violins when the brass instruments are playing, especially if it is fortissimo(just didn't want to risk it not being heard over the brass, and figured that the woodwinds, double bass, cello, and viola would be enough to balance the brass in the quiet passages and the fortissimo passages would have the brass stand out) If writing the pitches as I would normally leads to some of them being out of range for an instrument, then bring the whole passage for that instrument down an octave. If that still has out of range notes but they are too low, don't have that instrument play the passage at all(like the chromatic passage and the triplets before it simply had too wide of a pitch range for the trumpet so I didn't have the trumpet play that passage) Minimize the number of notes only a professional can play well.

  9. his is my favourite quote about composition, from Leonard Bernstein talking about Rhapsody in Blue: "The Rhapsody is not a composition at all. It's a string of separate paragraphs stuck together. The themes are terrific, inspired, God-given. I don't think there has been such an inspired melodist on this earth since Tchaikovsky. But if you want to speak of a composer, that's another matter. Your Rhapsody in Blue is not a real composition in the sense that whatever happens in it must seem inevitable. You can cut parts of it without affecting the whole. You can remove any of these stuck-together sections and the piece still goes on as bravely as before. It can be a five-minute piece or a twelve-minute piece. And in fact, all these things are being done to it every day. And it's still the Rhapsody in Blue." www.minimilitia.mobi/ www.applock.ooo/ www.7zip.vip/ So when you're composing something, and you're bringing ideas together, particularly for something with multiple sections, how do you know whether two ideas belong in the same composition or whether they should be parts of two separate compositions? How do you know whether two separate compositions are so linked that they should really be two parts of the same composition?

  11. I'm doing a survey and would love your feedback on the questions below: What do you think about the process of purchasing instruments at musical instrument stores? What is your thought process in buying an instrument? Do you consider brand, price, value, etc? How frequently do you buy/have you bought instruments? Are there any inconveniences? How satisfied are you with the process? How can the process of buying instruments be improved? downloader.vip/ccleaner/ www.happywheels.vip/ vlc.onl/ Thanks in advance!!
  12. Hey so I want to try composing a spicy meringue/salsa/flamenco piece for concert band and I have ideas of rhythms I just can't figure out a good key to place my melodies in. Any ideas?inro.in/showbox inro.in/mobdro inro.in/tutuapp
  13. Hello everyone. I am looking into resources, such as books, which outline music-theoretical concepts and experimental/practical ideas for quarter-tone composition, similar to how normal music theory is outlined/introduced. A lot of what I have been finding pertains to more theoretical constructs. Can anyone recommend some books / resources to look into?inro.in/lucky-patcher inro.in/9apps inro.in/vidmate
  14. I don't have a book on counterpoint but I know a few rules of counterpoint. Never arrive at an octave, fifth, or unison by direct motion, only by contrary or oblique motion Always resolve 4ths to thirds and 7ths to octaves If there is a tritone, think of the 7th chord that has that tritone and resolve the 7th chordAkinatorXender Kik Any motion is fine for imperfect consonances No parallel octaves or 5ths at all in 2 voice counterpoint and only have it in 3 or 4 voice counterpoint if it isn't going to be noticeable(which usually means in the inner voices). You can have parallel 3rds or 6ths but minimize it to like 3 at the most before you use contrary or oblique motion, otherwise you won't hear independence in the melodies. I am trying again to compose a fugue, starting over. I used a random scale generator and took the first result as the key for my fugue. That just happened to be G major. But I was wondering, would I do an interval analysis of a stretto any different than for separate melodies? And if I see a 9th, would I put down 9 or 2? I mean a second and a 9th have the same notes, but 1 note is an octave higher in the 9th than in the second.
  15. I'd love critiques on a choir composition I've written. This is the first of four movements, and I'd love critiques. I tried to consider the sound of the text, and tried to incorporate it in the writing. Apologies for the horrible MIDI realization. Here's the google drive link to it. Thanks for listening. https://discord.software/ https://downloader.vip/adobe-reader/ https://downloader.vip/itunes/
