  7. Ah, choices, choices. Why does life depend on them so much?

      Life depends on rIght choices...

      The art sometimes is depending on wrong choices...then we talk for pure art,far beyond from anything ordinary,such as life!

  11. humph. I need fresh inspiration. If you feel like being a friendly citizen, go check out "Winter's End" for me and suggest away. I'm pretty much at a stand-still.

  12. Just had a revelation the other night that a symphony is basically four pieces strung together. Why did I not think of this sooner?

      well, it's true that it's not always the case, but in terms of symphonies with movements, like Britten's Simple Symphony or Vivaldi's Four Seasons, that's how it strikes me. (Of course it's not necessarily strictly four, either). Of course the four or so movements usually have something linking them, even in terms of overall structural contrast (e.g. slow, dancy, rapid, then leisurely). But it just struck me that instead of viewing a symphony as some monumental unattai...

      Whoa... like, movements are just like.. different pieces together man.

      exactly! although in some cases they're more like variations on a theme.. still, I was excited by the thought :)

  13. yes, I love the celesta! I recently used it in my Music Box piece, but haven't in any larger orchestral works. I'd be interested to know a bit more about how it works. Apparently Yamaha is making ones now that have more dynamic flexibility, but beyond that I do not know much.

      Did you get better? I haven't seen you in a while!

      still sick :(.. you're right, I haven't been on here for a while!

  15. haha, well, I guess I was being a bit stereotypical ;P.
  16. :) yes, it's true! No, I haven't heard of him. What kind of stuff does he do?
  17. Plus I've always admired the music of composers like John Powell (The Bourne series, Paycheck) and Howard Shore for his epic LOTR score. I'd love to be in a position where I could create music like that.
  18. I guess it's more a matter of the thing I'd most enjoy doing - I really love composing, and would just do it anyway, but in terms of a job, it would be the best one to go with - doing something I love doing. Out of all my options, all of them would probably pay poorly (or at least that's what I'd assume) - writer, photographer, singer, illustrator, costume designer... So obviously money is not an issue! If I wanted to get money, I'd definitely be smart enough to go for doctoring or law, but that's just not what I'm interested in. It's more in terms of reconciling what I love doing with what I should do as a job for practicality. So this would just give me a chance to explore composing on a much higher level. Mint! :D
  19. Hey ppl, just uploaded a piece that Id really appreciate your feedback on... It would be very helpful. :) http://www.youngcomposers.com/music/2350/the-music-box/

      you're welcome >.<

  20. I guess the conclusion to all this is that both are extremely important if you're pursuing a career as a composer.
  21. I love the Ever After soundtrack. So many beautiful sounds. And LOTR, and Star Wars :P, and Shrek, and Paycheck, and.... *gasp* Well let's just say I like a lot of soundtracks. There is this amazing period drama by the BBC called Little Dorrit (based on Charles Dickens, of course) which has really good music :). Plus Enchanted ;). They don't often pull off a modern-day musicals, especially concerning Disney princesses, but that one is good. Oh, and Patrick Doyle's Sense and Sensibiity. And... I think I'll stop here before I type your eyes off (metaphorically squeaking ;P). Cheers, ~ KahliaSkye
  22. Just uploaded a piece, and would appreciate you all checking it out! http://www.youngcomposers.com/music/2341/there-it-is/

  23. Wow! Thank you all for your thoughtful and very helpful answers! :D I am well aware that it will be a hard road, which is why I want to start now. Thank you very much! Now I'm about to go do a search on film composing in the forums :musicwhistle: .
  24. Hey Everyone, This has been a long time in the woodwork, but recently I discovered that out of everything (and there were a lot of possibilities), I really want to become a film composer. I was wondering if anyone has any tips/advice on how to go about it. I'm in a pretty small country (New Zealand), and I'm not so sure how helpful a three-year course would be in really equipping me for this (time, money, and where I am in the world - we travel a lot - are also considerations), and whether I'd actually get a job at the end of it. So I would really appreciate your insights and experience on this. So fire away! :) Cheers, and thank you very much in advance! KahliaSkye
