  2. Hi guys and gals, I wrote this piece and have been trying to get some feedback. What would you identify as the weaker areas of the composition/production?

  5. Rick Beato analyzes the opening sequence of The Shawshank Redemption, music by Thomas Newman. Rick is one of the best youtube sources for learning music theory.
  6. Hi everyone. I'm new here. I would like to hear your thoughts about a music i composed as a trailer music concept. I'm open to your criticism or views as i could learn from your reaction towards the music. This is a link to the music. https://soundcloud.com/x-feel/self-realised
  7. Short epic style piece of mine, i was testing some choirs and it turns out very well.
  8. Hi folks, last month i was watching the netflix tv show ,,Lost in Space'' and i was inspired with the story, the characters and the original music itself, so i wrote my recent piano composition ,,New home''. The original idea was to write orchestral tune for small orch. but i've decided to do that (maybe) in the future, with better conditions and equipement. soundcloud.com/nenadprokopiev/new-home-piano-version Sheet: exit.sc/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdrive.google.com%2Fopen%3Fid%3D1Y-XdADgy48r4oUV4haLMq4b0QBI8lyIy
  9. Recently i worked on a tune ,,Flow'' (soundtrack genre) i made two versions of it, regular and arabic, (i want to experiment with different styles and genres) and i like the sound that i got. https://soundcloud.com/nenadprokopiev/flow https://soundcloud.com/nenadprokopiev/flow-arabic-version
  10. Hi there, for a long time I wanted to write something like this: a flamboyant "final fight" track with broad, heroic themes swirling above driving ostinati. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=674265&songID=13676086 Originally this piece belongs to the score I wrote for a student film project realised many many years ago. The music was produced via a MIDI-based digital sequencer and of course orchestral sample libraries. Unfortunately, the London Symphony Orchestra was just too busy at the moment for a recording session. :P While the last bars in asymmetrical 7/8 meter surely feel a bit overloaded (with syncopated choir fills and such), I am quite happy with the overall arrangement and the final mix. But maybe I am a little bit biased since I listened to it too often and it's just chaos to your ears... 😉 If you have some hints on how to improve the mix, sound, orchestration etc. please feel free to let me know. Best regards, Dustin
  11. Hi everybody! I want to share with you my fourth video with my own music. In this case I used synthesizers and piano record with a microphone and conected to some analogic pedals. I hope you like it! It's about my feeling for my coming back to Spain. So the music it should me "happy", peaceful and positive. Thank you guys. Mediterráneo - Sh. (4/?)
  12. Hi, I'm a composer student from Spain. I would like to present my composition for my own video. I'm in a project to create videos and music during my year in Helsinki. Im not hapy at all about the quality of the sound, but anyway, this is my video:
  13. Hi there, while there is a plethora of student films in the drama, action and comedy section I never came across anyhting close to fantasy. Consequently, up-and-coming film composers looking for first experiences in different genres don't have the opportunity to practise their skills on a fantasy production, which really is a shame considering the multifarious musical options that particular genre offers. However, just recently in my parent's attic I stumbled over an old camcorder which my brother and his mates used many many years ago (around 2005) to shoot their own little fantasy flic called "The Dagger Deliverance", set in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, famous for entries such as Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights or the D&D pen-and-paper roleplaying game. Though it's obviously an extremely LOW budget fan film production, which in its entirety never was finished, they put a lot of hard work into it and some scenes just have a wonderful amateurish and naive charme to it. ;) Unfortunetly, all of the finished and survived sections of the film use temp-track music (mostly from well-known feature films of that genre), thus it is impossible to re-score it without also having to re-dub all the sound and dialogue tracks. Seeing no other way, I ported the original raw material from the analogue camcorder, re-edited together three suceeding scenes, applied some sound and visual effects and voilà: here you have your fresh amateur fantasy film template for film scoring exercise! :D Since I had to use the sound originally recorded on set, the few dialogue passages are in German. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV5ecE6aHUE You can use the film and audio material provided here under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 (CC-BY 4.09: :) Have fun! Being a hobbyist composer myself I am still working on my own score for these scenes and probably will upload my approach on this in the next few weeks. Dustin
  14. Hello fellow composers! Having made a research among the community, I realized there are tons of really good and pro composer here, so posting my music is kind of intimidating! ...But here we go: My aime is to be a film/video game composer, as many other people, among other dreams and goals as well. My style of music is not only "Epic Movie" music, I also like to compose relaxing, kind of world and New Age music. Among my favorite composers I love: Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Antonin Dvorak, Edvard Grieg and JS Bach. My non academic favorite composers and artists are: Enya, Vangelis, Kitaro, early Works by Sarah Brightman, Loreena Mckennitt, early Works by Yanni. And my favorite film composers are: James Horner (may he rest in peace), James Newton Howard, Joe Hisaishi, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, just to mention a few because there are a lot... So I tell you this for you to have an idea where my infuelnces come from, as that´s the music I hear the most. So here we go: (Any feedback would be highly appretiated, both regarding composition and mix):
  15. Dear Community, I am relatively new to orchestration and therefor a beginner. I would like to share my latest soundtrack with you. I am grateful for any kind of feedback. Thanks for taking your time!
  16. Howdy, I tried my best to compose the score to a little horror production called „Sarah”, a short film (18-19 min) produced by film students from all departments about a series of murderous events around a remote cabin the woods. It was executed for educational purpose only; nobody involved got any money. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVx9Q85qQ40 However, I am eager to get some early feedback on the music, especially some hints concerning the mix and the overall sound. Is it realistic enough? If not, what sucks the most? Of course, there were no real accoustic instruments involved. Fell free to tel me what you think about it. :) Maybe you'll recognize the major motif (a falling fourth/tritone shift) here or there. ;) Best regards Dustin
  17. Hi there, I spent the last days working on this little tune... https://www.soundclick.com/artist/default.cfm?bandID=674265 ...a somewhat rhythmically driven (almost march-like) medieval/fantasy theme soundtrack theme. It's build upon a (hopefully) heroic melody and is intended to accompany the travel montage of a fantasy epic (game/film). If you have some handy tips, especially concerning the mix, please do not hesitate to share your insights. :) Best regards Dustin
  18. Hi all, I am currently studying a music degree and i need to get different composers views on how they compose. My research project is about the compositional devices and techniques that different composers use in order to convey specific emotions and metaphors to the audience, all music should evoke some sort of emotion within the listener and my research project is dedicated to finding out how composers manage to do this. There are 4 questions to this questionnaire and if you could spare some time to share some of your knowledge I would greatly appreciate it and it would help my project immensely! These are the 4 questions: 1.Which elements of composition do you find are the most effective with regards to conveying emotion and feeling through your music? Instrumentation, tempo, key/mode, time signatures/time change, arrangement etc.? Please explain why you find these effective. 2.Do you find any of the above elements particularly effective when trying to convey a specific emotion such as anger, Love or sadness etc.? Why do you find these so effective? 3.How much interaction is there between yourself and the director of the film which you are composing for? Does the director offer much input regarding the music and why do you feel the director offers this input (if any)? 4.What compositional advice would you give anyone who was faced with the challenge of conveying thoughts and emotions through their music? If you can manage the time to help me out with my project by answering these questions you would be helping me out a great deal! Thanks for your time
  19. Hi Guys, I guess some of you have seen this? http://www.hanszimmerwantsyou.com Basically it's about arranging/re-mixing Zimmer's theme. It runs until the 19th February, so there's still time. I've gone down the more serious compositional route (rather than the 'let's just re-mix the files' route) Here's my entry if you want to listen: http://www.hanszimmerwantsyou.com/tracks/2210 And here the score (I don't think I've even seen another entry with a score!): https://www.dropbox.com/s/cs0l6n88kwro3hb/Hans%20Zimmer%20Arrangement.pdf Let me know what you think :) Adam
  20. Hi all! It has been a while and most of you are probably different from when I last visited. If you've never seen me here, I was quite involved w/ the forum about a year ago but got very busy teaching and having a life...well that having a life thing isn't so big of a deal right now so I am visiting again...I have some new things up on my web site including a blog for a new piece I am working on to be performed live but synced with a film! I am going to keep updating it as the film and music is completed. Check it out: www.BenEasler.com Visit the blog!
