Hello again, I am returned for a bit from my inactivity period, with a question that I hope will be interesting for you. But first, some context: I am playing Legend of the 5 Rings with a few friends. This is a table top rpg that's based in a fantasy world that takes after a lot of asian mythology, mainly japanese, chinese. I want to give it a try to compose some music that sounds like it belongs in it, but MuseScore has so many instruments that I have a hard time choosing which ones to use. Do you have any tips on what instruments you like to use or would use when composing something to sound Asian? Thanks in advance!
Hi fellow composers! My name is Kian, a Shanghai, China based composer and visual media audio specialist. I'm a graduate of the world prestigious Berklee College of Music and have had more than 10 years of industry experience working on a range of projects including AAA+ games such as Eve Online, Dishonored, Spec Ops: The Line, Dust 514 and block buster Chinese films notably Wolf Warrior. You may find more information about me and my works through my website: www.kianhow.com After more than 10 years of being in the industry and having spent considerable time working in the East and West, I have accumulated much highly valuable experience which I believe will help composers navigate through their careers with much ease. And considering the rise of the economic powers of Asian countries in recent years, there will be more opportunities for composers to explore in this region and I will have highly valuable information that can help aspiring composers intending to exploit the growing markets of the east. I have written a series of articles with the specific purpose of assisting composers achieving their goals. If you find my articles to have provided any value to you, do share it to others as sharing is caring and if there's any questions or topics you'd like me to write about, do get in touch with me :) https://www.kianhow.com/single-post/2017/08/08/Truths-About-Being-a-ComposerThat-You-Should-Know-1-Understanding-the-realities-of-being-a-composer https://www.kianhow.com/single-post/2017/08/08/Truths-About-Being-a-ComposerThat-You-Should-Know-2-Understanding-the-function-of-a-“work-for-hire”-composer Thanks and I wish all of you the best of luck with your careers! -Kian Music Composer | Visual Media Audio Specialist www.kianhow.com
Guest posted a topic in Incidental Music and SoundtracksHello fellow composers, I would like to publish and show you my newest composition - Peach Scented Whisper, inspired by classical/folk/traditional Chinese and Japanese music. The short, easy to listen piece is based entirely on minor pentatonic starting on D flat and in a smaller number of bars - the same type of scale starting on B. The given score is written for piano, since my music teacher advised me to write as much as possible using that instrument (I'm a high school student with no much background in music studies). I intended to use Chinese ruan moon guitar and guzheng patches, but since the midi file had a very wide pitch range (which is characteristic for piano), it didn't gave a satysfying sound. In result, the final product uses traditional, European orchestral ensemble harp. Enjoy and thank you for any helpful hints or suggestions!
