  1. They did play jazz, watch 8:38, and then watch whole video if in doubts.
  2. Yes, we had that feature but it's not currently available, maybe we'll get it back soon.
  3. You and the Rain

    Thank you all for your comments, I think it will automatically sound more vivid in a real orchestra, I used the libraries into the Sibelius so I didn't program the modulation as it should, so it does sound with lack of dynamic contrast, later I might create a new recording.
  4. Timpani tunings

    I would just add that the lowest C in 32'' is normally out of range, is only possible if you modify the tension of the patch and move all range 1 whole tone down, the lowest note is D. Also, not all orchestras have the 5th timpani.
  5. You and the Rain, for strings orchestra. A piece I wrote in 1 day, having a cold, being unable to go outside, waiting for my girlfriend to come to see me, while raining outside... Never have written so fast before, definitely she makes the difference.
  6. Almost all XVII, XVIII, XIX Centuries works, with some exceptions.
  7. Magical Overture

    Maybe is the harmonics glissandos in strings ? is a quite weird effect but it is sounding 100% real in recording since the library I use for strings has the sample of such effect, this in addition to the vibraphone and the rest makes the whole thing. This kind of effect: (just I didn't use the sul-pont)
  8. Magical Overture

    I live (always have) in Querétaro, Mexico, and Mexico is a country has never cared for their composers, artists, culture, not even education, so bad is this problem that I just quit my job at the local conservatory after 5 years, because there is no future at all, the institution is going down more and more and I decided not to drawn with it. Right now I must find another solution to make a living and yes, in the future I would like to see the posibility of moving to another country, but right now I think is not possible. Some day I'll take with me all my scores and show them to some people might care about it. for now I can only say I do like the results I have been having.
  9. Magical Overture

    Thank you, I will never stop composing... first they said april 21 then said they were delayed with it and still checing scores and set august 8th and it seems nothing will happen, these competitions do nothing but put me very stressed when the results day approach, since I've never had a premiere and would be such a nervous day for me. Anyway, I'm already thinking a new work with this language but more complex, larger orchestra and choir, I hope not to delay too much writing it. Thanks.
  10. Magical Overture

    Well, results date came and left and nothing at all... I guess I didn't win anything (like always) maybe Bartok was right, competitions are for horses... Thank you all for your comments, I hope to post something soon.
  11. tips for mariachi trumpet

    Write all parallel 3rds or 6ths, also make rhythmics parallel, nothing of counterpoint, countermelodies or textures, just make them all speak at once, write ffff always (they'll play it like that anyway) nothing of legato, everything with accent and make fast notes very staccato, use very simple harmony and everything what is happening in this video.
  12. Merlin vs. Predator

    Hey, thank you both for your comments, I'll check those cymbals but that changes from one speakers to another.
  13. HELP! Name of this piece?

    Sounds like a 70's track possibly soundtrack, something like Francis Lai or maybe early Morriconne, have you tried Shazam ?
  14. Hey, This is a Demo I made for a Music Production Course I will be giving soon, it will be a short course, just and introducion to the use of DAW, VST and libraries. We will end by re-creating this same track with the students. I made this thinking of what Epic Music usually sounds in trailers. Created with: Cubase Elements 9 Kontakt 5 Cinesamples CineBrass Cinesamples Drums of War 2 Cinesamples Deep Percussion Beds 2 Cinesamples Voxos Epic Choir Alicia Keys Acoustic Piano ProjectSAM Symphobia 2 Elite Orchestral Percussion Vienna Symphonic Library Los Angeles Scoring Strings
  15. Magical Overture

    Hey, Thank you for your comment, Well more than Debussy is Scriabin what had served to me as a guide, this piece is in my continuation of the seek of the avant-garde level of my own language without loosing the esthetics, and that's why I improve very slowly, since writing avant-garde and make it sound beautiful is something truly hard, that someday I hope I will make it, that is why there is a lot of melodies and the density of lines is actually light compared to what it can be. I don't know either what kind of pieces will be sent to the same contest, or how many, the orchestra has a very good level, but maybe not a super high level like those orchestras can play Ferneyhough or Dillon or that sort of things, but they do play Mahler Symphonies, Vaughan-Williams and that kind of works I found in their most recent season. I think my piece is as difficult as it needs to be to produce the effect I planned, nothing beyond that. Thank you for commenting, Yes I'm not too very happy with the ending either, but I was always rushed while writing this, I work all day I only had about 2-3pm and weekends to write this pieces, last saturday I decided to somehow finish it already, there's still 1 month to deadline but I wanna prepare other past works to send them, I'm gonna improve the scores a bit, make them look like the same "Publisher" and I don't know if I have time to make new mp3 of old pieces, this is actually a brand new setup of libraries in my Sibelius. Something I have to say is that my original intention was to make it sound very cosmic, and call it "Nebula Overture" but I'm not ready yet for that language, while writing it I felt it didn't sound cosmic enough and I changed the name to "Magical Overture" since it does sound magical, maybe "magical" is the previous step to "cosmic" ?
