I just started taking the Epic Music course and then found out abut this contest. I’ve loved movie soundtracks ever since I was kid and always dreamed of being able to do something along those lines. Since I was already taking the Epic Class I wanted to do something cienmatic and make my piece sound like it belonged in a sad scene in a movie. I chose some pretty somber sounding instruments like brass, harp, staccato violins, some deep tympany and tried to make use of some dynamics and sad sounding motifs. I just started writing symphonic/orchestral music like this month so this is all really new to me but I love working with these acoustic samples as opposed to all the synthesizer stuff. I used a chord progression I found on a Udemy piano class and modified it to have more minor chords to bring out a really melancholy feeling. I just imagine a person sitting alone in a room, looking back at all the mistakes they made in life and grieving over it. The picture I found online really captured the feeling of the music. I have not had a chance to do a proper intro but I am basically a guy who jams on the guitar and has a smattering of jazz theory picked up over the years. I figured since I am a pretty good improviser I should be able to write a half decent melody around some kind of interesting chord progression and hopefully people will find it interesting.I am glad to just have a piece to enter and good luck to everybody who enters!! I am including a bandcamp link because I think it will give you the best sound. Thanks for listening and I look forward to getting some comments, which are highly appreciated.
