    Film Scoring Demos

    Hey everyone. I've been away for a while, but I thought I'd come back and share these. They aren't really fully fleshed out pieces. I just enjoy writing short, film cue styled snippets of music. I realize I've posted the first three here before, however, most of these recordings are new. I switched over from working completely in Finale to recording in a DAW. The first demo is an older recording made in Finale and the rest are newer, made in Sonar. I've listed the libraries used in each piece next to the links. Hope you enjoy, thanks for listening.

    Pleasant and thoughtful stuff. Much enjoyed thanks! I had to give #2 a couple of listens.

    Hi Davis,

    I truly enjoyed all your demos. Fantastic scores! The second and the fourth are my preferred ones (although I'm not so fond of the piano sound in demo 4). Wonderful renderings and beautiful strings (certainly the lower strings). Absolutely worth the listen!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Some maybe posted earlier but I did not hear them. I enjoyed all 5, most of all 2 and 4.
    I will not respond with overwhelming praises for your work, because you know that you are great. Mostly, because your music is close to my heart I just say, please come back with some more.

    Thank you my friends; I'm glad you enjoy them.

    Just an note as to why the piano in #4 sounds so strange. That particular music describes a dream I had a while back that left me with some very bittersweet emotions upon waking. I wrote it as if I were actually trying to score the dream scene. The piano patch is called "Warped Piano." I just wanted the music to have a strange, not quite real, dreamlike quality to it. Hopefully that explains why it's perhaps not as pleasing to the ears as a regular piano might have been.

    Many thanks, and One Love

    That's a lot of music - And dreamy, warm stuff it is, so nicely done. You have a Voice, Daniel, something some people never really develop. Best of fortunes to you.


    PS - I don't know what's so "warped" about that piano in #4 - It just has a lot of reverb, and is bottom heavy. Sounded ok to me!

    Excellent writing! Long live consonance!

    Your Demo 2 particularly impressed me. It's just beautiful.

    Thanks for posting and sharing your fine music with us, Mister David.

    Hello David!

    I'm writing this as I listen, and so far, I've really enjoyed number 1 and 2, very nice orchestration and composition!

    It's been a while since I've listened to much film music, so maybe I'm off the mark when I say the 3rd sounds a bit like James Horner (maybe Thomas Newman?)

    I really enjoyed #4 as well, including the piano. To me it sounds as if I'm listening to a piano being played in a far-off room or different floor of a large building - like a church.

    #5 is nice, very clean and simple, great for those intimate moments in films. Again, perhaps a bit like Thomas Newman, but not too much. (I tend to find Newman's music annoying after a while, whereas this is not annoying in the slightest )

    Thanks for sharing these great demos!
