I am new to this forum, and also fairly new to music composition. I just started seriously composing for orchestra about a year ago. I have not had nearly as much musical training as I would have liked, and with my knowledge of theory, perhaps I shouldn't even try. I guess I just love it too much! So without further ado, here are several pieces I have composed. Most were from soundtracks I did for short films for people in another community.
A suite from a film called "Edison":
End Credits from a film called "To Strive for Fame":
Here is a spoof I did for fun of Hans Zimmer's Batman Begins Score:
And a little diddy I whipped up for a contest, in which I had to use the the children's song, "Sing a Song of Sixpence":
This is my latest work, a very short piece for a trailer:
I would appreciate any tips or advice you might have for me. I joined this forum to learn from you guys. Thanks in advance,
P.S. All these demos where written in Finale 2006 using the included sample library. I never got around to upgrading to the full GPO. Most were mixed either in Cool Edit Pro, or Cubase SX 3. I am a very notation-oriented composer.
