"I like the repeating motif here. Concerning the relation to the Superman Theme. I hear a similarity there but the melody leaves out one note. I didn't make the association until Saul mentioned it. I would agree most definitely film…"

"There is maybe a need to be concerned here about copyright. Your theme is simply taken almost in an identical manner from John Williams soundtrack for the film Superman. You simply slowed the theme a little, but its poignant nevertheless and is…"

"Hi Brandon, I like it! Definitely movie and very Spielbergian at that. It felt to me like an end-piece, something to be played as the credits roll. I think a faster version, perhaps moved up a bit in register, might do as an intro. I had to listen a…"

The Great Big Machine in The Sky - Brandon Schwab - FEEDBACK APPRECIATED

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuLQWdwZLiY&feature=youtu.beI normally write longer through composed pieces that are more suitable for live concert bands and orchestras to perform, but I thought I'd give writing purely for listening and not for other groups to perform a try. This is more film score-esque than my normal pieces. Id love any feedback. See More

"Hi Brandon, This is a very interesting piece dynamic wise, lots of up and downs in thermes of volume and expression. The harmonic content is also interesting, not extremely experimental, but good for the general listener. Keep up the good work."

"Lovely orchestral work. Nice bass rhythm. I appreciate that resolution appearing at 1:50 forming a nice complementary contrast, an effect I search myself when composing. Thank you Brandon. Kjell"

"Brandon,      Nice work.  The intro is very pastoral, a sequence of dissonances and resolutions.  At about 20 sec. I felt like there was too much dissonance which lessened the effect.  At 2:30 the piece…"

"Sounds like a soundtrack for a historical western film, very American in its feel and scope. Can be used for a film with no issues, has a thoughtful patriotic feel to it too. Congratulations for an excellent work."

Let Silent Still - Brandon Schwab

This is a very rough draft of a piece that I have been working on for the past few days. I am writing it for a college with a very good euphonium player. Would appreciate any feedback. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZphceGsN52I&feature=youtu.beSee More

Brandon Schwab replied to Galih Setiawan's discussion Moo Town
"Galih, Try and make your own style when composing film-style music like this. Not to say what you've produced isn't good sounding or worthy of an indie film, but from what I have gotten from this piece is that you've focused a little…"
