Hey guys, I've been spinning my wheels a lot lately and was just hoping to get some good opinion/maybe some help. I'm sure I'm not the first to notice that the synthesizer world is just completely…Continue

Hey guys, this is a piece I wrote probably about 6 months to a year ago. If any of you have played kingdom hearts, its kind of like a theme for one of the random worlds in the game. Anyways let me…Continue

Hey guy's I'm Vance! The lone composer/producer for my own company (which will be huge one day!) M7 Music. I enjoy writing video game sound tracks and recently, film scores. I also write hip hop beats.

I play trumpet and piano, and my favorite composers are Chopin, Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, and Pharrell Williams

I've sought out this forum in order to meet other composers that I can learn from. (Its hard being the only person you know that can compose lol). Can't wait to start posting!

I'm usually on the computer between 6-11 P.M. or later so if you just login to Skype in that time frame we'll probably catch each other.

That's cool, my Skype name is Karahashianders so add me on that.  Unfortunately if you listen to my Soundcloud songs the decline in sound and composition quality as you go further back in time will be very evident.  I plan to redo Gleam of Light and No Sanctuary when I get a computer in the next month or so that can actually handle these amazing samples I have (LASS, Drums of War 2, Tonehammer Emotional Piano, etc).  For Age of Aggression, I actually can't play the song without hardcore CPU overload so I had to basically make two halves of the instruments and put them together, export, and listen (painstaking process).  I also listened to your Mysterious World Theme and it reminds me of the music in a game called Tales of Symphonia, which has one of the best game soundtracks out there as far as I'm concerned.

Hey man, thanks for the add and I'm glad you liked my song.  I also make hip hop beats sometimes.  They're much easier to write for me than orchestral things but they're just as fun to do and I often come up with tunes when writing them that I wouldn't think to write in an orchestral format that could probably be used in an orchestral song.  

You say you sought out this forum in order to meet other composers you can learn from.  That's pretty much the same reason I joined so maybe we can chat on Skype sometime and analyze each others' songs or discuss ways to go about writing.  Let me know if you're interested!
