  2. I personally think that music that gets made is the best kind.
  3. Focus on the music. The rest will take care of itself.
  4. Don't hold off composing until you learn enough! you'll never learn enough. Just do what the Greek goddess of victory said: 'it'. Study, yes! But to inform you of what others have done, but don't put composition off. Sure it's a great excuse for not getting it done. Saddle the horse and ride in to the sunset. Your main problem is not, that you haven't studied any masterworks. Your main problem is that you allow yourself to use that as an excuse!
  5. Thank you very much! No, I don't know Slaney but after listening to Window Gazing I see your point! Thanks for pointing me to him because that is EXACTLY the kind of music I like to write 🙂
  6. Hi guys, Here's a little screencast of a little swing piece
  7. Thanks, Hughes! I've played this kind of music since I was a teenager so it's sort of natural to me 🙂
  8. I'm always working for a client. Delivered a score today actually. I actually don't know what takes the longes. I take my time to come up with the concept and then just go to work with arranging and orchestrating. I make sure to take plenty of breaks and I actually think that's the reason I don't get stuck. The hardest part is waiting for feedback. You wait in a limbo because you don't really know what to do with yourself and how long you've got till your next sprint.
  9. This one is specific to the large stuff. I’m making other reels for different genres and styles. That way it’s easy to pitch for projects.
  10. Thanks @Luis Hernández and @Rabbival507 The point of a demo reel is to showcase shorter pieces of certain styles to pitch on projects.
  11. Hey guys, I've compiled my orchestral demos into one playlist with what I call 'epic fantasy adventure majestic' – so anything with a big sound. If you care to listen though I would like to know your thoughts. If you don't listen through I would be interested to know where you stopped and if you care to tell why you stopped 🙂
  12. Good! So take it as an opportunity to dig deeper and develop!
  13. I really think the piano could use some velocity differences and humanized timing. Also it's kind of thin on it's own. Maybe a different sample or consider lower accompanying chords. Too much reverb and delay – dial it down and send the delay to the reverb as well. Low strings in the intro could do well with some dynamic CC riding. Too static. I don't know reFX Nexus but maybe it's just moving the mod wheel up to phrase it. The effect on 0:34 comes WAY out of left field. Dial it down and maybe send it to a room reverb (what's called ER). It's a night and day difference between where the piano and strings sit and where the effect comes. To ease the listener you could maybe do a reverse-reverb trick leading up to the effect, so we know that somethings coming the first time. Drums could do with some ER's as well. The string melody on the other hand is a strange choice for sound. Other than it's lacking the same dynamic shaping as the cello and doesn't emphasize your nice turns in the melody it doesn't break the phrase anywhere. If this is the best sample you've got you could try EQ'ing it so the highs stand out more (this can also very well be done with a saturation plug-in of any kind). You could also double it (unison or at the octave below) with a legato saw lead, any woodwind sample or a more tightly attacked string sound. Thanks for sharing!
