I have added two new tracks to my music player. These are both orchestral, and written as part of an assignment for my course. The brief related to a computer game. "Trogmystique" is an ambient piece that progresses half way through to a slightly more tense and ominous feel. "Night and Fray" is a no-holds-barred battle scene.
It's been fun creating some big orchestral sounds for a change, and I'm quite relieved to discover that my setup is capable of doing this (only just - I had to tweak some DFD settings and latency buffer sizes!) I feel very happy working with orchestral music now, and I look forward to the continuing process of learning, a highlight of which will be my attendance in October at the Steven Scott Smalley orchestration course in NYC. I am hoping to learn many valuable things there!
