Hi there, I am writing music for 35 years now, most of the time as a hobby. From 2005 until 2008 I tried to make a living out of this. Although I sold a few of my pop songs I failed...sigh. Now, while I am trying to get a job as a bookkeeper or a software developer, I spend my time recording the orchestral music I have written over the years with some VST-Instruments. I would be glad to listen to your comments on these little pieces of music. Most of them are heavily influenced by John Williams (you know, the guy who did all the music for Spielberg and Lucas). Other ideas are stolen from my master Frank Zappa.
haha thank you Jochen! I understand you like John Williams, his music is an inspiration for me as well. Which is your favorite piece? My favorite is from Presumed Innocent, the end credits. I just love the sound of the piano with strings! As you probably heard in my music haha.
I don't think I ever answered you back. I'm currently working on some instrumentals. I plan to send them to music libraries for consideration. I have the piano parts to 2 of 8. So it'll be a while before I post them here. I'll probably post them in the Music Dissection forum.
Interesting piece, Maybe Tomorrow. Some interesting chord progressions.
I see that you like Art Rock. Within the past year I've been familiarizing myself with similar genres, particularly progressive metal (such as Dream Theatre). There is much to learn from some of these wonderful musicians.
