|My First Steps Into Scoring|
Scoring music for films and games, or just writing general
cinematic/soundtrack music has always been something I wanted to do in
my life. Because a lot of the music I have been writing lately has sounded
cinematic in nature, I have decided to move in that direction and work my
way into scoring. Anyway, I wanted to share my new project and get
feedback on the direction I am taking.
This soundtrack was an influence on the stuff I am beginning to write.
Mass Effect OST
My music always sounds spacey, so I am embracing that aspect.
An old project of mine that I abandoned a few years ago. I took the name of the most
recent release for my new project.
I claimed this name a while back for my solo work, but decided to change directions
under a new name.
This project is mostly for me to practice cinematic music, so if you guys could give me advice, that would help me out a ton.
|Oh damn I thought you were trying to get laid.|
|Nah but I'll be happy to ask Sputnik for help with that |
|This is actually pretty damn cool. The swelling synths in the first half sound like some chill ambient shit I'd listen to and the 2nd half is real nice.|
Actually, I think this track sounds more like it has the potential to be a great ambient track. Maybe that's just because of my own personal taste preference, but I think the more upbeat parts like the fuzzy guitar and drums sound a little out of place. For the drums, I think it's mostly the actual sound of them that I'm not crazy about - they seem kind of tinny and weak.
I really dig a lot of what's going on there though.
|Thanks for the comment! Yeah I've been meaning to work on the drums a bit. They sound much better through headphones than speakers. |
I agree with you about the ambient feel. I'm trying to orchestrate my music so it feels more like an electronic soundtrack, so hopefully I can move it mroe i nthat direction.
|Love scores/ambient work, wish you the best! |
Agree in TM on the drugs, at the very least they're key seems to clash with the tracks atmosphere (more so at the beginning, before the symbols enter in). Has a really cool cinematic drone vibe, really dig that.
|You're from Seattle?|
|Thanks, acanthus. |
Well, I'm from around the Seattle area, but I don't live there now.
The first film score I did. The director re-edited the heck out of it and made changes to the film after the fact that I don't agree with, but that the heck, it's her film. The soundtrack doesn't flow as well though because of it.
