Hi all, this is my first contest entry here
For my composition, I was inspired by the most lyrical themes that Morricone wrote for movies dealing with memories of the past - so naturally full of nostalgic and bittersweet vibes - like “Once Upon a Time in the West”, “Once Upon a Time in America” and “Giù la Testa” (aka “A Fistful of Dynamite”, aka “Duck, You Sucker!”). I also took some similar suggestions from “The Secret of Sahara”.
The intro is completely based on a suspended F9/sus4 chord, which then modulates in a theme in C, followed by an interlude in A- and a theme reprise in D. I used an orchestral sound, with passages for specific instruments in Morricone style, like oboe, harpsichord and female singer.
DAW used: FL Studio
Libraries used: Spitfire Audio “Albion One”, Red Room “Palette Symphonic Sketchpad”, Sonuscore “The Orchestra Complete”, Ivy Audio “Clare Solo”
All right, cut the chatter, here it is, and hope you like it:
