I finally finished my percussion ensemble piece "Metamorphosis" last night, so I just wanted to see what you guys thought of it. Also, I'm not sure if I should expand the end or not. I kind of like how it's a short and sweet outro, but that's just me. Thanks! :)

  • Thanks Raymond,

                I usually leave all of my sound editing until last and was eager to be done with the score itself, so if it sounds a bit sloppy, that's why. I actually don't record anything. This is all done in Sibelius 6 with sounds from VDL. Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by double or triple hammer accents. But as a percussionist, I've always found just an accent in the notation is enough to get the idea across. You have to be careful, or equipment starts getting broken. I've watched it happen when people take "fff" way too literally, haha.

  • What he said.

    reduce the ambiance a bit as well. Unless that's the natural release time.

    Great on its own, greater in a game. Become a game composer and be done with it already! :P
