I’m just a bit curious as to people’s individual style of composing and any features of your works that you can recognize as inherently “your style.” As I’ve been trying to work toward getting more of my music into the commercial market, I’ve started to have some doubts again as to the direction I should go.
What I mean is that, after browsing through music on some different libraries websites, while not all of it sounds the same, of course, there is a lot that seem to focus toward the trailer or hybrid types of arrangements. I, on the other hand, still seem to have better success at writing more older sounding, more traditional Hollywood types of pieces, and I’m recognizing that this is more my individual “style,” but, this isn’t a style I am hearing anywhere on libraries sites.
For those of you who have written for libraries already and have music out there, what is your take? Do you write in a style that is what you find in these libraries, or do you just write whatever comes to your mind and put it out there regardless? Do you know of any libraries that may be looking for the style of music that I’m good at?
