  1. Original Piano Piece Good Evening guys and gals, I'm new here, and my name is Artie I composed this little diddy a while ago for a fan community that I like. I know it isn't really good quality, but it's my first time putting myself out there like this. So, if you can view it, maybe comment there on Youtube,or here and give me some criticism. Bearing in mind, again its my first and as of yet only attempt at publishing me playing piano. A Diamond Shattered: SU fan piece Thanks again for the support, and I hope to hear something soon. ~Artie
  2. Short Quintet Piece

    Audio might not be exactly the same as the notes. If you have the time for that, please look over the notes. I'm about to hand this piece to the quintet's administrator and wanted to hear another musician's opinions before I do so. Any feedback would be appreciated.
  3. new track

    So here is the brand new track, devotion, this is the instrumental, the full version is coming soon, really hope you enjoy
  4. Hey all! I had a thought. After graduating with a music composition degree I found that a lot of online courises are directed towards film and game music, bit don't really educate other aspects of music composition. I feel like I am not alone here, so I have decided to start building course that would go over these missing aspects. Please leave your comments here on what you personally would like to see in a music composition course or take 2 minutes to fill out this survey Survey If this really peaks your interest, make sure you answer the last question to get early access to the course when it is completed!
  5. EDIT: This survey is now closed, thanks to all who took part. I may publish the results in February, and if so, I will add a link here later. Hi folks - first post, so apologies to the mods if this type of post is not allowed! I am a composition student at the University of Surrey and I am throwing around a survey across the internet to gather some data on how musicians write music with music notation software - this forum seemed very lively, so I'm very interested in your thoughts. If you are someone that composes/arranges music with music notation software (Sibelius/Finale/MuseScore/etc.) I would be extremely grateful if you could spare 10 minutes to fill out this survey: https://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/eZTxmoaK At the end, there will be two participants chosen in a random raffle that will receive £15 via PayPal. The survey will close in 7 days (6th January 2018). If you have any questions/comments/discussion - fire away! Thank you and have a Happy New Year!
  6. EP teaser

    So here is the first track of my latest EP that is coming soon. It takes inspiration from artists such as lorn, and has a very electronic, slightly gritty/dark feel that is designed to accompany image of a similar style and set a particular tone/atmosphere. Certainly game/film music if you know what i mean, hope you enjoy and dont forget to follow and spotify:) Many thanks
  7. New Track

    So heres my latest track, a chill, kind of, get high to this vibe. Clearly a vibe piece for setting an atmosphere perhaps as appose to a full blown single. Would love your thoughts.
  8. 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/audio specialist for visual media with over 10+ years of experience and have worked on projects with over $85 million in the box office and multiple other award winning projects. I've worked with all kinds of people - both high and low, nice people and assholes. Through my personal experience, I know what's truly plaguing the industry and am offering my insights of how to improve it for the benefit of the community. Thanks and if you find this article helpful, do give it a like and share it to others :) -Kian Music Composer | Visual Media Audio Specialist www.kianhow.com

  14. My new Chill Mix

    Hey guys, Recently made a chill out tape, just a short 10 minutes or so of what i consider chilled and easy to listen to beats. This mix is a combination of some brand new beats as well as some old, for example some tracks from my latest EP are also here. The tracks in this short mix are all my original creations and have lofi inspirations as well as some downbeat, quite depressed vibes. Perfect for some background music to do some drawing to perhaps? Or simply just to have a smoke with:) Heres a youtube link i hope you all enjoy:) (you can also find iTunes,spotify,bandcamp and google play store links on the channel) Many Thanks
  15. Desperation (String Quartet)

    Here's my first serious string quartet, recorded with electronic instruments so the dynamics are displayed very poorly. Separated in 5 small movements, with a backstory in the video description for whoever is interested.
  16. Depicting things in music

    What are your tips for depicting things such as art in music?
  17. I am a drummer and have been into composing music for picture for the past 8months and I have developed a deep interest in theory and composition. I am currently persuing my BE in mechanical engineering and would want to take up a major in composition. I have question on how to develop a portfolio that can be deemed "acceptable" by these college for the department of composition. I have been reading a lot of theory books. Basic theory books. Started the Fundamentals of composition by Arnold a few weeks ago. Having a hard time reading the example scores. Any advice would be gold right now. Thanks :)

  20. 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
  21. Greetings YC Family! It's been a long time since I made a post and visited the forum. For those of you who may recognize me, you know that I was once an administrator on this site. My years on here have aided me in my ventures within the past decade. One of these ventures was the setup and creation of an online radio station devoted solely to promoting the works of new and emerging composers. This post, thus, serves two purposes: 1. To promote Et Lux Radio and encourage each and everyone of you to listen to the music of your peers as it is broadcast 24/7. and... 2. Make a formal call for live, or rendered, recordings of your works along with a signed affidavit giving Et Lux Radio permission to include the works within its broadcast. Submitted recordings need to be downloadable and in .mp3 format. They can be for any instrumentation and must be under 25 mins in length. Please include in your submission a brief biography and any related program notes for your works. Submissions can be emailed to jaowoodr@gmail.com! Thanks and I look forward to hearing your works!
  22. Narration in music

    Hello everybody, I need your help / advice! A few years ago I wrote a poem and I now want to set it on music. However, I want that the soprano tells the story. Only in some cases she is singing along with the other instruments. When I want the soprano to speak, do I have to write down the exact rhythm on the staff or should I trust her interpretation of how the rhythm of the words has to be? How do I notate this? In class, we learned that sprechgesang is not singing, nor speaking. It is between the two, but I want the soprano to talk like actors do in a theater show. Thanks for your help, Maarten
  23. Hello everybody, Would it not be fantastic if Young Composers had its own special Magazine composed by the creative members of the forum? Since a few weeks I have been thinking about this idea. I already made a few magazines with the free program called Jilster (https://www.jilster.com/). The advantage of this program is that I (as a chief editor) can give specific pages to other people so that many people can work on one single magazine. The program is very ergonomic: I learned the things I needed to know in one hour of experimenting. Because the idea is still quite vage, I decided to schelude the magazine. This link leads you to the magazine in which you can see the topics I would like to include. https://jil.st/YoungComposersMagazinePreview Before I begin to write for this magazine, I would like to know if you would appreciate it. Could it be an valuable addition to the forum?I would also like to know if some of you are interested to help me. If you want to write about a topic that is not mentioned in this megazine scheme, do not be disappointed. I can give you several pages on which you can write about what you want. Furthermore, if you are interested send me a private message. I am very enthousiast, but of course we all have to be! Please be honest. Maarten *I know that not everybody has all free time to spend on writing and laying out the articles (including me), so there will not be a deadline. It is something extra and it has no priority.
