Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

I have been working on this for awhile. at first I had it posted here with just cheezy soundfont sounds..
I recorded it with complete disregard to orchestration and all that.. just written so the sections were all on one staff. well now that I have GPO I have to begin thinking and learning about orchestration and this is my first result.

I did upload this onto a reply in a different post however this is revised to include a woodwind section.

please help me learn more. were have I gone wrong and what did I do right?

I am honestly pretty clueless about orchestration... I am currently on chapter 2 (melody with strings) in Principles of Orchestration by; Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov and that is the extent thus far of my knowledge of the subject matter.

Do you like Nobuo Uematsu? He is one of my main inspirations, and this reminds me much of something he would do. This is an impressive song. I like the tremolo section. Nice job. I know how hard it is to make an orchestra in MIDI.
thank you for taking the time to listen and leave your remarks.

@ Janne - the velocity and volume changes are something I am working on. I wonder if it is my software more than anything. I need to figure out how to make the computer respond more dynamically. In this piece in particular I have thought to remove some voices in the first section and add them to the end to give it more build.

@ Shane - I was gona say I never heard of Nobuo Uematsu but I looked him up and he wrote the music for the first video game I got for the Nintendo Final Fantasy 1.
thank you for the complement.

To others please send me your critiques I am very interested in what I can do to improve my work.
