Vn replied to Ashley Berg's discussion When was the last time you composed music for a client?
"I did a feature film and about 16 trailer cuts recently. The trailers were painful, dont do it unless u get paid for it :).
Overall quite an enjoyable experience once you take money out of the equation. Its not my main source of income so i could…"

Vn replied to Ashley Berg's discussion What kind of software do you use in your creative workflow?
"I use Cakewalk (now Bandlab) Sonar Platinum as my DAW. My music is exclusively VST/DAW based, no live stuff (yet). My primary VST libs these days are by Spitfire Audio, a UK based firm. They are absolutely gorgeous. They take a bit of a learning…"

Vn replied to Ashley Berg's discussion Any insights?
"Hi Ashley
(Hopefully like others) i hit 'writers block' that can manifest itself as - stuck with an idea that works and cant find a new direction for my piece or nothing good comes to mind after repeatedly watching a shot or scene or script. In…"

Vn commented on Brian Joch's photo
"Nice! Thanks for posting. I have been contemplating switching to Reaper (from Cakewalk Sonar Platinum). Do u do a lot of midi recording and editing - how is that part of reaper?"

Ingo Lee replied to Vn's discussion Patxi's Ghost
"This is fun to listen to Vn, good work!  It's tempting to want to take a piece like this further and VR is the cutting edge right now so with your knowledge that seems like a good way to go.
When I google 'ghosts playing music' there's lot of stuff…"

"Wow, this is really, really good!  I love a musical composition comprised of many textures and "sweeps" like this.  And the production is really great.  Love your stuff!"

"Very evocative, and mysterious--the eerie other worldly sounds paint a very convincing and enjoyable journey for the listener. Im drawn into this world and enjoyed it immensely.

Very well done!

I originally envisioned this as a short story in…"

Kjell Prytz replied to Vn's discussion Patxi's Ghost
"Very well done. Intelligent and emotional music. Although being cinematic, it certainly doesn't need a movie, it creates its own images and exactly those you depicted.
Congrats to you

Kjell"

"It might even work nicely with some well done stills in the foreground. Perhaps you might look on pinterest or somesuch site to see if anyone is already out there doing something which would fit - just a thought - "

Vn replied to Vn's discussion Patxi's Ghost
"Hi Gav,
Thanks for listening & ur comments! 
"But what does one do with such a piece?"
Thats a great question. I dont know the answer. I just came up with the story and decided to write the music to go along with it so I can exercise those muscles.…"

Gavin Brown replied to Vn's discussion Patxi's Ghost
"Hi Vn,
That's some good haunted house music there! I don't usually follow "cinematic" works that much, but this one is several cuts above the pack. Good imagery, which captures the intent of your description quite well I think. Spooky tune, which…"
