Meanwhile, I still have no idea what to do…
Crazy effects on your Cello to make a tension type trailer, then add some big hits to make it epic?
Yeah, I’m not sure how to fit that into this theme… (Though one could probably create some interesting textures for the build-ups.)
I did have some inspiring improvisation moments the other day, though, and figured I might have a go at an all acoustic track soon (cello, maybe some violin), a bit like the Wolfenstein: The Old Blood menu theme:
David, why did you do this…Now I also want to learn how to play the cello!
Id love to give it a go, but have had a passing in the family this week and im now bogged down doing post on a film with a deadline in 2 weeks…
So shall look forward to coming back soon and enjoying everyones output.
My deepest condolences for your loss, and my heart goes out to you and your family Matt.
Will you have time to enter this contest David, would be so cool if you added a violin or cello part from your playing
I’m working on something… Cello part might happen as well!
i am late to enter in this contest i will try to compose a quick epic track i have some ideas, ok let’s go the studio
Absolutely, I am looking forward to your entry. Go into the studio, or as it may be referred to by us composers “the best place in the world”
here is my composition
the title ; the gate , i would try to illustrate a god entrance with a big gate
for the instrumentation i use string, woodwind, brass, percussion and choir
there is also metal hit, and fx
the track is short 1’30 approx
the main difficulties for me is how to start, i decide to draw a scene on how the track will evolve
thanks for listening
Joseph, it may be too late now. But if you still want to learn just search youtube for Alex Moukala
Great to have your entry in the final hour of this contest, however I actually would prefer you to make it a separate post so every entry has its own thread in this section. Can you re-post it as its own thread please?
hello, i have also created a post yesterday night where the other composer have posted their composition for the challenge :).
Ah I did not notice, pardon me. Lots of great entries, will be very interesting to go through them all.
don’t worry, yes i have seen that there is a lot of composition and great composition
lot of pleasure to hear all of them
Here is my short epic composition for piano, strings and choir. Don’t really know how to write music for trailers https://soundcloud.com/jlesnichy/epic-theme-12
I am glad you decided to join the challenge Julia!
Did you also post your entry in this section (not this thread). If you haven’t please post a new topic with your entry in the contest section where all other entries are.
Uh oh, I wanted to join so much but… September was such a terrible month, I was busy with my “actual” job, lol… so I had maybe 2 hours per week for composing and I didn’t finish… I barely even started.
On the other hand, thanks to the contest I watched many tutorials about composing trailer music, so I learned something new about it! Have to take it from the positive light, right
Hope I will join some contest in the future!
