Looking for composer for new orchestral works

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I would like you to write the series of traditional orchestral film music score-styled albums and conduct as well.

I suggest we stick to seven albums and that would be enough. 

And they are:

After the Rain - in the style of lush and romantic Maurice Jarre with a slow opening and slow ending (16 tracks) (Piano solos included)

Sad Memory - in the style of mournful and emotional Elmer Bernstein with a slow opening and slow ending (16 tracks) (Piano solos included)

War on Terror - 9/11 and the Iraq War - in the style of action-packed, dramatic, mournful and emotional James Horner with a slow opening and slow ending (32 tracks) (Piano and trumpet solos included)

The Places Between - in the style of lush and romantic John Barry with a slow opening and slow ending (16 tracks) (Piano and harmonica solos included)

Golda - in the style of lush, softer and dramatic Georges Delerue with a slow opening and slow ending (32 tracks) (Piano solos included)

Friends and Lovers - in the style of lush and romantic Marvin Hamlisch with a slow opening and slow ending (16 tracks) (Piano, tenor sax and harmonica solos included)

Notes of the Noblewoman - in the style of haunting and softer Wojciech Kilar with a slow opening and slow ending (32 tracks) (Piano and cello solos included)

This will begin ASAP and when it's done I would like you to record each album elsewhere with the live orchestra and group of soloists in Los Angeles starting from next year.

Please apply if you are interested.

Sincerely,

Lwazi Nkiwane

Jesus, man, how much are you paying for this?

 

You expressed my feelings better than I could.

edit: I'm actually intrigued by this post, so let me extend this a bit further.

What even is this project? How can 7 albums be "enough", and how would you go even further from that?

When do you expect this project to be finished?

Do you expect one composer to be able to do all this work, or do you want to hire various people to do that?

If you have the money to hire an orchestra and soloists to play all that, why not also hire a conductor? 

Is it a soundtrack? Or is it just film music-inspired?

Why all of that specific instructions about the final project and no details about the actual gig?

What are your intentions when it comes to retailing it? Is it related to any other project or is it simply a bunch of albums for people to listen to?

Why L.A.? 

 

I have many other questions, which I'll probably add here if I feel like it.

I'm with @Jean Szulc. You have details I wasn't expecting and you're missing details I'd normally expect to see.

If you answer his questions, you'll have the right info to attract the people you're looking for.

p.s. @Ken320

@Lwazi Nkiwane More details would be nice.

I would totally do this if: I don't have to hire an orchestra, don't have to fly to Los Angeles, get paid if this is for commercial use.

What is this for??? We are't going to start composing if we don't have the details we need...

If the conditions above are true, I would like to make ONE piece, maybe TWO...
