Matthew, I appreciate that positive feedback. Your work sounds great too. I am still learning all about mixing and producing good recordings... It's a fun journey. I'll be soon pushing myself to be prolific.
Finally, I found your music here! I´m glad I did it! Very much enjoyed, especially "Ethnic influecnes montage", which I am listening to in a loop. I like the transitions! They keep the ear "awake" :-) I especially liked the 1:45 change, very unexpected!
I also enjoyed the blend of instruments you use here, beautiful!
This is very close to travelling without moving....! Thanks for sharing, hope you´re doing good, best wishes!
Hi Matt - thanks for the comments about VSL SE. Thought you'd like to know that I've just ordered the downloads - should be able to install them tomorrow evening, in between everything else I have going on - if I'm lucky. SO busy at the moment! Shame not many of the things I'm doing are earning money, but ho hum, Rome wasn't built in a day.
I also ordered Omnisphere, which is making me a bit giggly, like a kid at Christmas...
Yeah., I have the *hopefully* understanding of mixing and mastering, it's just not always as easy to implement! What is in one's head isn't always what comes out of the speakers, despite the intentions.... ah, the joys of sample library orchestration :)
Thanks for the add too, and your comments. Nice sound you have on all your work. Not sure what I wrote in my message and am trying to work out the "after my own heart" reference :-)
Would love to pick your brains sometime on how you keep your mixes so crisp and clean. I'm never satisfied with my mixes (especially the brass - which is a real pain!) I'm using Symphobia, EW Gold, Garritan (although, not very much these days). I wish I could afford VSL. Looks like I will be going LASS first - maybe also Cinematic Strings and/or Hollywood Strings. One can never have enough strings!
Hi Matthew, thanks for your invite. I haven`t been in here since before Christmas and have just uploaded a 5 min film music excerpt, otherwise it might have been Christmas this year when I would have discovered you.
I`ll give your music a whirl sometime this week.
Hope your own recession is over, if there was one for you. Not many know what real music is anymore huh? A great many think it`s a piece of round flat plastic with a hole in the middle!! :)
Take care, and is that your own desk?
Cool! Is that the cues you were writing at the moment? How did it go, success?
Oh no man!! I think the music overall is a great combo with the program, it makes it much more dramatic, without the music, some guy selling camels might seem a bit dull!!
I've just been to Guildhall for an open day today! How come you particulary like guildhall??
I went on youtube last night and thought the music for the doc was great :D I'll check that this other website in a bit!
That's what they say, hopefully if I get to study in London that's when the real networking will begin!!
So are you a registered composer on Screened Music?
I've heard of that! I'm going to see if I can find any clips. Is some of the music on your page from it, or have you not put it up yet?
You hear that a lot when reading about film composers, how they get given one little chance and then do it forever!!
I play guitar (yet another guitarist, I know!) and I've applied to Trinity College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall and Royal College.
Is kingston Uni in London?
