  1. There is one of my work, a special combination of classic and more elements in one song
  2. Hey guys. What do you think of this music I composed... i Had a dark film scene in mind... preferably that of a Sociopath‘s mind snapping! https://m.soundcloud.com/jesuz-4/the-sociopath
  3. A filmic composition that uses both classical and jazz motifs.
  4. A tune suitable for the holidays ... I'd love to get everyone's feedback on this one. It's my first digital recording in a while.
  5. I see an overhead view, from a helicopter or drone, of a city at night, flying low over the tall buildings, with all the lights in the offices and from the car headlights. Scene-setting music. Of course others will hear something different. As always, feedback is welcomed.
  6. Hi Young Composers, In my latest article, I discussed about why most modern game soundtracks are boring and lifeless and how to remedy it. And this has actually very little to do with composer's technical skill as most would think. Take a read and see if it make sense, or if you have encountered circumstances as discussed in the article. Also, it'll be helpful if composers(you guys!) in this forum can have a discussion if you agree with me or not. :) https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-most-modern-game-soundtracks-lifeless-marvel-symphonic-yoa/ Being an experienced composer/au
  7. This piece wasn't written for any specific piece of media, but I pictured it being used for a movie trailer. Let me know what you think!
  8. Hey everyone! Here's another one of my instrumental pieces, this time it's a solo guitar instrumental. I composed it when I was 18 and I re-recorded the piece 1 year ago for my solo EP album. I performed it by myself. I intend to make another version with some additional instruments to it sometime in the future, but I guess it's also good just for a solo instrument. Let me know how you like it please!
  9. Hey everyone! Please let me introduce you my new composition which will be included on my debut album "Ballerina", coming out in October, it's called "Reminiscence" and I composed the main theme a couple of years ago, but It felt incomplete to me and so I added more pieces to the puzzle and I hope you'll like it!
  10. The Accidental Tourist is one of my favorite films, whose score is a remarkably prismatic theme by John Williams. Here are three different versions and I cannot remember where I got them.
  11. Another little something for critique (please rip it to shreds!) I'm not particularly happy with this at the moment. Feels like it's all over the place. I think my main issue is probably the strings — they just don't feel like they're working. It's probably a combination of the writing and the orchestration (and maybe the samples I'm using as well), but maybe some more seasoned composers can give me some tips here (especially at mark D...) As an aside, the director loves it, and is going to use it, but just for my own purposes I want to see if there's anything I can do with this to p
  12. Hi peeps, Recently started composing again. Forgot that I even had an account on here from nearly 10 years ago, I feel old. Been trying to put together a sound for a film I'm working on at the moment. It's set mainly in the Australian bush, so I'm trying to go for a very raw, exposed sound. I've put up just one example. I've listened to it so much lately, it would be nice to get some second opinions. Please be as harsh as you like. Still trying to find "my sound"... Thanks!
  13. I recently worked on a soundtrack for a film some uni students were working on. It's my first real attempt at putting music to film and would love to hear how I can improve for the future :) . The youtube link below is for the finished film project but the Soundcloud link is just for the soundtrack on its own ;) cheers! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gaGzgkePho&feature=youtu.be
  14. Hello! I submit to you my first piece to be reviewed. I wrote this piece sometime last year when I tried to compose an orchestral piece every month. Supriringly (not really) it all became too much to handle. I would love to get opinions on this so I could perhaps apply them to future pieces. Thank you Tony B
  15. This is something for a project a friend and I are working on. I don't have all the film yet, but I've written out the themes and titles for the film. This is the "turning point" of the villain in the film, where he unleashes and lets loose. Since I don't have all the film, I haven't quite finished the track, but some feedback and thoughts would be nice. Mixing isn't my strong point, but let me know what you like and what I could do better! Thanks, y'all. Gustav Johnson p.s. The inspiration for this one came from a friend's bed-frame which produced 2 distinct pitches, so never s
  16. Found this article listing the top 25 film schools... We get so many people here trying to decide where to apply to study composition for film, this might be helpful. A school with a good film program AND a good music composition program would probably be a good place to be. Here's the film school list. See if there's anywhere on it that you're also thinking about because of it's music program. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/best-film-schools-2016-top-920344/item/usc-25-film-schools-2016-920351 Cheers! pate ceramics
  17. Re-uploading this from the archives if it's alright. I have a real recording, and a Sibelius Essentials recording of the piece. The real recording was recorded at my senior recital and there are some technical flaws, but it is still a performance I will never forget. This piece is for Choir and String Orchestra... I put that in the title because, it is more than simply a choir piece with string accompaniment, the choir and the strings are equally important and complement each other. The piece is a religious work, but stylistically it takes a lot of film music influences. The piece i
  18. Hello all, I am currently in my final year of studying for my degree in Music Composition for Film and Media and I was hoping to get some advice on finding work as a composer. I am happy to work with any type of media but I find it difficult to believe that most composers just sit around and wait for directors to approach them with pieces of film requiring music. Are there any good websites to use where a composer can go and find work for himself? Should I be offering my services for free? Also are there any particularly effective ways of advertising oneself? Any advice o
  19. I'm a big enthusiast of film music I listen to it all the time. I'm studying classical piano performance in a conservatoire (music college) but I find myself listening to more film soundtracks than classical music. I have realised that composing for film is what I want to do for a living. I have tons of ideas and inspiration but I'm get very frustrated as to where to start. My questions are : how to start composing? Eg which software to use? I often have millions of ideas in my head that sound extremely good, and also sound good when I play it on piano but I have an one and only software Sibe
  20. I've been working on this album for 2 days now. It was a mixed album (ambient, metal and Gothic horror) This album was inspired by Akira Yamaoka, a composer for the Silent Hills series. https://hanszimmerman.bandcamp.com/album/ghost-town Can you point out it's flaws and provide helpful criticism?
  21. Hello, I'm William. I am a 16 year old composer. I have been looking for something new to put in my projects... And sound design is, in most cases, very unique. I have a pretty great microphone to record samples with, but I need something that I can use to manipulate the sounds I record to make very unique textures and such. It would be great to find such a thing in free or low priced VST instruments, but a standalone software can work too. I need something that can turn a sample into something totally different from what it originally sounded like. Anybody got any ideas? I know there is Audac

  23. Hi! I'm new to this forum so I'm not quite sure if I'm posting in the right section here. Forgive me if it's the wrong one. I am trying to find out what kind percussion is being used in this clip @ 2:41 It's really a type of sound that is used in a lot of horror movies (and action/thrillers too). I heard it a lot of times. It is used in the movie "Valentine". You can hear it at 2:41 in this clip which is from the film itself. Link to Valentine clip: I'm not talking about the timpani heavy drum, but the intense short and loud metallic kind of sound on top of it with the reverb. It's a st
  24. Hi everybody! I am an artist, doing animated films. For my latest project, Georgie the Cat, I am looking for a musician who feels like collaborating with me, by providing the music / soundtrack. Georgie is intended to become a series of mini-clips with little, cute stories of Georgie the black kitten. These clips are suited even for the smallest children. Here is the very first clip, that needs music: http://vimeo.com/31328053 The film needs an intro-theme that is played during the opening panel. The same intro music will be played at the beginning of every future clip. Then it needs music
  25. Hi, everyone, I'm new to this forum. I have some basic questions about film scoring. I play the piano, and I can compose musical themes on there. I have trouble converting it to orchestra, however. I have even more trouble creating the realistic movie sound I'm looking for. The software I have is Finale 2008 and Garritan Personal Orchestra 3. I know a lot can be done with these, but I simply don't know how to use them to their full potential. I want to make something in the general style of Anne of Green Gables, but I'll need some help. Please bear with my newbie questions. Since rega
