Midphase\'s thread has been terrific (Sampled Orchestra tricks). I thought I would start another thread that us \'newbies\' and possibly some of our pros would benefit from.
Please share with everyone a short description of what instrumentation, devices,etc. that are used to support a particular \'emotional\' element that you are scoring to. For example (these are fairly obvious but I think you will catch my drift),
1. Harp or vibes playing whole tone scale (dream cue)
2. Sliding trombone (comedy)
3. Major sixth interval (on most instruments) - (achievement)
4. Celeste (Child-like)
5. Wind chimes (magical)
6. Hi string harmonics (cold - physically or emotionally).
I know what some of you are thinking - \'there should be no conventions - just do what sounds right\' - that may be true, but we have to start somewhere and \'then\' make it our own. I just think a running list of these different types of devices we be an excellent learning oppty.
Many thanks in advance.
