Hey everyone; I'm gonna go straight to the point. I think I have a bit of talent (at least enough to kick off a good enough melody) but I lack the experience and creeativity to extend these. So I have decided to challenge myself (and also get some advice from other, more experienced composers) to make an ambient theme out of some short music I wrote for a friend's character in an rpg we are playing. The music in question is attached, and my idea is to take the leitmotif of her character to make a longer, more calm-sounding, ambient theme that last for a few minutes and reminds the listener of the character in question. This piece is not copyrighted and is not used in any environment that is monetized, and I am just looking for people who want to work with this piece and compare their work to others. My intent is to learn from your pieces how I can make something longer (and to sate my curiosity and see my work altered by others), and I hope you'll like this little song and enjoy working with it!
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!
I heard Michael Manring's "Adhan", which is based on Muslim's call for prayer, and I loved it! (Manring's Adhan (link), Original Adhan (link)). So, I picked my guitar and started playing. I played some notes as background loops then started improvising in Maqam Hijaz / Phrygian Dominant mode (they're basically the same thing!) and I loved the result! I call the piece "Khorasan" because there's one of most important religious areas in Iran (because The holy Shrine of Imam Reza is placed there).
