I'm new here, so take it easy on me.
Anyways. I could use some major help. I have been stuck in this twinkly sound for some time now. Everything I make sounds very fairy-tale-ish. So, I have been trying to learn ( and listen ) to composers like: Aaron Copland, John Williams, and even Martinu and Hovhaness. Anything!
What I have sounds horrible I know, but here is a link to my two "sketches". Just trying to form out the shape of the compositions and flesh out a main melody. Sorry for the bad recordings too. I have been using just my Roland keyboard and Sonar, so no heavy mixing or anything. Just quick and dirty. Oh, and they are very short too. I don't want to do anything too long until I know what to go forward with...I'm lost.
Oh, and I made the webpage in like 5 minutes. So ignore the simplicity.
Well, that's about it. I hope you can help me out.
Am I on the right track? Thanks in advance!!
