Greg Brus replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Whatever your approach to tonality, form etc. might be, jumping straight from electronics into a symphony is pretty suicidal IMO. I say, you need two things: the ability to manage the orchestra (it's 50+ musicians, wasting their effort on poor…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Thank you!  Yes, it is a crazy undertaking, but that's where I was going with it, kind of asking what steps could I take to maybe (in 10+ years) be at the capacity to write something as immense as the Resurrection.  I will definitely start with…"

"Mahler! That's going in at the deep end alright!!
I think a work, the size and complexity of his, is one hell of an undertaking even for a seasoned symphonist.
It really is, to my mind, a question of scale in architecture and form. Mahler is working…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Thanks for the advice - tbh I am in no way concerned with "traditional" formats of any types of pieces.  To me a symphony is a large-scale work intended for a symphony orchestra.  Whether the second movement is a sonata or the third is a scherzo…"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Oh ok, so you want to know what to write before you try a symphony. I personally think you should just start writing the symphony but here are some ensembles that will give you knowledge on how to write for the instruments: brass quintet (2…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Yes, I read music and have always wanted to compose for live performance, but my strong suit has always been electronic, composing via a DAW.  I do mean a large scale work for orchestra, no particular reason for a symphony but I want to create…"

Michael T replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"When you say symphony do you mean a large scale work for orchestra or something more specific?
Why symphony particularly?
You say you work mainly in the electronic realm but presumably you read music?"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Cody D. Boyce's discussion Is this a silly question?
"Compose the first measure, then the next, and the next until you have a rough graph of the movements. Then edit the work until it is performance ready and strikes an emotional chord with one's soul. Go get it performed and published. To compose a…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Henry Cavalier's discussion Mixing in Logic Pro
"If you need a mix professionally done for a real project in a short amount of time, just hire someone.  Or, if you have the ability to take your time, or are working on demos instead, listen to hundreds of scores, hundreds of mixes, hundreds of…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Paul Hamilton's discussion How to make a memorable theme?
"I've heard time and time again in interviews with film composers, to "borrow" themes.  Obviously don't take the Imperial March verbatim, but when you're starting out it's OK to emulate other scores.  Indie directors and game developers also will…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Mohammad W.Alsaad's discussion Ways to get Human Tempo (conducting) Digitally
"It may not be possible to alter the tempo as you record.... Having said that, if you need a part to be rubato or more free, then simply record it that way.  Recording the other instruments on top of that should be just fine, as if there were other…"

Cody D. Boyce replied to Robert Lipfriend's discussion Orchestral Software
"I use Cinesamples Drums of War for ethnic percussion.  The majority of my music is electronic-infused, so I'm not as concerned with getting the typical "classical" sound.  The native samples that come with Kontakt are quite good, and very easy to…"

"Josh, a great question, and as a new(er) composer I've been researching and fixing this issue myself.

The first big tip I learned was to picture your VST like an orchestra - you may only have 4 string parts but an orchestra has 50+ string players,…"
