Hello everyone. I've lurked here for a couple of years, but never registered until today. I have a question, and as a GPO owner, I knew just the crowd to ask.
I've reached a point in my life where I'd like to start taking musical composition more seriously, with the goal of eventually doing it for a living. I have over a decade of classical training behind me, but I've been away from music for a few years and I'm a little rusty.
My question is: What books do Garritan customers consider essential for the aspiring composer? I'd like to expand my library a little bit and have a treatise or two (or three) to work through. I'm game for anything, whether it be about melody, harmony, counterpoint...whatever. Just let me know what you think is important and why.
If it helps, I'm most interested in the world of film music (and possibly game music), but I'm not limiting my horizon to those fields just yet.
