"Well, I really enjoyed that, and I can't say I'm huge fan of the genre. Can't comment on the composition, but the texture of the piece, the layers and harmonies, really drove through to the end for me, and kept my interest up.

As to the sound, I'm…"

"Thank you for providing further details Bruce and also thanks for weighing in Bob, I appreciate it.

As there were a few other details bothering me (e.g. the type of compression I was using was smearing the transients too much, and I think I'd gone…"

No muddiness through my Sennheisers.


Through my AT's I do hear it. So, I guess its just me...probably a good thing! On the other hand...

The rule of thumb is to mix for your target audience.

"Bruce - thank you for listening! And thanks for reporting the sound issue, I will look into it.
Could you please tell me if this boomyness is present throughout the entire piece or if it is limited to specific sections?
And I'd also like to know…"

"Hi Mikel,
I don't consider myself qualified to remark upon the composition, itself, other than to say it seems a fine example of the genre. 
I can comment on the sound, though, which on my system is suffering from a bloated, boomy mid-bass. It's so…"

"How about e minor then? lol. All I was suggesting was a little more forward motion, something pulling us to the modulation. I love the color within your orchestration. It reminded me of John Powell. Was that a tuba solo I heard at the beginning?"

Mihkel Zilmer replied to Mihkel Zilmer's discussion The Griffin Riders (orchestral adventure music)
"Thank you everyone!

Rodney - cheers bro, interesting suggestions. One thing though -  I feel the E major you suggested wouldn't work at all, because of the G# it contains.. I've been avoiding using any leading notes as this is basically a modal…"

Mariza Costa-Cabral replied to Mihkel Zilmer's discussion The Griffin Riders (orchestral adventure music)
"I like it a lot, but I wanted the melody to develop instead of just repeating the same theme x number of times.

It's a style of composition, isn't it?  I should just get over it."

"Well, done.
 I thought the foreshortening  of the bar to 7/8 - (near the last section) was effective, - increased tension."

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Mihkel Zilmer's discussion The Griffin Riders (orchestral adventure music)
"Cool man. We started a theme in a minor, modulating to c minor, then d minor, and bringing us back home to a minor while highlighting the different colors of your samples. It works very well, my only complaint is that as a composition I felt as…"

"Bob Porter said:
Very fun.



I would love to see what you could do if you made a video(not from stock footage, one you shot yourself) and put music. I keep asking folks who write film-type music to do this, So far, no takers.


Thank you Bob! …"

Mihkel Zilmer replied to Mihkel Zilmer's discussion Music for visual theatre: Sharks ("The Old Man and the Sea")
"Rodney, I think you're perhaps not quite on board with the basic principle of this composition - it's a chant, a meditation, a mantra, repeating itself over and over. Yes, a scraped tam-tam, rain-sheet, bass drum and cymbals are all featured…"
