"A-7 ¦ G/B ¦ C ¦ F is an uplifting progression. You can listen to it on my site at: http://www.freewebtown.com/russcott

It's number 6 on my 'mixed cues' playlist and it kicks in at about 00:30s. Tell me what you think of the progression as i…"

"'Age Of Machine' is a very good piece, Jason. You have a good ability to compose using contemporary sounds in a post modern way. Hmmm, just listening to to 'Digital Terminus'. Like it."

"You left this on Cara's page.

"Hmmmm.... There's grounds to be sceptical here. Appears a little odd to me."

Ok, i'm intrigued..."

Russell Scott-Johnson replied to Dorien Herremans's discussion How to go about your composing? Do you hum and record... or do it on paper?
"I can guarantee that when my head hits the pillow at night, then a fully blown, symphonic orchestra will take the melody that i've been humming and run with it. It's then a mad dash up to my studio to get the bugger down before i forget."

  • Very nice! I like the vibe you have created on Not Getting Out. Excellent!!!
  • I hate dem Zombie MF'rs too! Reason #3 is my current scratch pad. Nice work. Best of luck...
  • Dark, yet well lit.
    Your compositions have a sort of warmth, that prominences the characters that you build(/mention) (e.g Darius).
    I am sure they would sound even more scintillating when performed.
    Have you ever considered using a Tabla ? I thought 'Darius Breaks' was looking for one !
    Hope you don't mind my intrusion !!
  • Oh - and thanks Russell for your wonderful comments about my music. Sorry, I didn't mention it before; was distracted. I'm looking forward to listening to your music as soon as I can find a moment without interruption.

    Best regards,

    Jase

  • Ok, so. First comment. This had better be good,right? Im composing for high budget, american indie film. It's a gritty, dirty crime thriller. There isn't much score needed, but my god it's intense. The director is flying over to see me again this week end. This is my first BIG scoring project and 'im running my studio on 1 gig of memory (shhh!) and a lot of late nights!; yes, it is possible to do!. I'm realizing that life is what happens to other people.

    For all you hardcore composers out there, I'm also using EWQL, Reason 3, Cubase SX3 and other VST's - What??? Whadya mean that's low end? Hey, have you seen the prices of VSL lately? it's that or the mortgage. Did i mention I'm only running a gig. Hey! it's my studio and i know how to milk it.

    Back to the film. It's being mixed and mastered into 5.1 at Twickenham Studios, England, which is kinda rare for such a small project. And that aint cheap. Am i seeing any payment for this? you bet your ass, sunshine.

    And so it goes. Back and forth over skype and ftp servers to deliver, well, the deliverables. Sometimes cues hit the mark first time. others need a lot of rewriting. Even the spotting session can bring about red herrings!
