    Into The Shadows --Golden Age Project--

    Greetings everyone! This is a darker and more mysterious (and kinda long) piece.

    http://www.samdillardmusic.com/Into_The_Shadows.mp3

    It has a somewhat sinister and foreboding edge, but still retains a cinematic and adventurey feel to follow the main characters as they explore ancient dangerous places.

    There are a lot of softer sections to accommodate dialogue as well. Anywho, thanks for taking the time to listen and I appreciate any feedback!

    Eeek, a lot of different instruments were used in this one! Took forever to finish lol. GPO Strings, woodwinds, percussion, and the Solo Strad are part of the mix

    "...This is a darker and more mysterious...piece..."

    In comparison to what, Sam? - It is what it is--And I want to say I always enjoy it when you come by to share some music here. And your "Golden Age Project"--("project" is in the title because this is more underscoring for the radio show, right?) is rather magnificent in its impact, so let me say right away that I revel in its cinematic, melodramatic excesses very much.

    I'm allowed to say "excesses" because my major project in recent times is the music for a Gothic Horror piece, and while I feel I've used a subtle approach to the material, it's nonetheless in the territory of something that demands at least Some degree of "excess."

    I invite you to stick around and take a listen to other pieces where you've posted this - omigosh there's some outstanding work to be heard, --as is Always the case actually. Let me site Skysaw and Et Lux, for instance, as people who have outstanding pieces currently on the board. A constant flow of glistening nuggets to be dug up here in The Listening Room.

    Back to "Golden Age"--I remember you saying that you've needed to really push the limits of your resources to produce these tracks. Well big Bravo for you, because your results are stellar.

    Thanks for the ultra fun listening trip.

    I know you've mentioned the Golden Age Project before,
    Sam, but... my ancient, creaky memory is unkindly refusing
    to allow me to remember what it is... lol. Perhaps you
    might fill us in a little on that, again -- both for me, and
    others.

    Fantastic, phantasmagorical, stunningly good cinematic
    writing in this, Sam. I'm assuming this is supposed to
    accompany or augment -- something (film? game? what?)
    by the loose structure of it; but I could also easily see
    this tightened up and offered as an excellent symphonic
    fantasy.

    Beautiful job on this technically as well, Sam -- every
    time you stop by is reliably a pleasure!

    My best,

    On Sam's behalf, here's the link to his thread when he posted the first part of this project a month ago:

    http://northernsounds.com/forum/showthread.php?t=56972

    He's comissioned to do the theme music and underscoring for a mythologically inspired radio series, and we all rose to a standing ovation for his first post--as well we should for all his posts.

    He's simply producing the sterling example of how excellent "work for hire" can be when the composer is incapable of becoming a mere hack.

    Ah! Thank you, Randy. In which case, this is, indeed,
    top-drawer work for the intended use. Now it really
    fits together for me, what Sam's doing, here...

    I get the distinct impression that folks are going to be
    listening far more to Sam's music than any of the
    dialogue, though... lol! At least I would be -- material
    of this quality always grabs me by the ears. (Now
    there's an image.)

    Reviewing that prior thread, I know now why I did
    not remember the subject of this (I generally do,
    which was puzzling me). On that thread, too, the
    music collared me so quickly, I believe I never read
    the thread... lol.

    Best,

    Golden Age is going to be an ongoing serial, with 12 part series consisting of 30 minute episodes for the first season. I normally just pump out a 2 minute song or so when I get bored, but now I am tasked with making a ton of broadcast quality music, which is not something this lil' guy from the country is used to!

    But I figure if I did a good job on it, maybe that would lead to more work and eventually I could get me a new computer to replace the old and crappy one I've been using for years and years, lol

    It's really encouraging to hear so many nice comments though! I've been going through some tough times lately which is why I haven't posted much to be honest. Thanks again!

    Sam:

    Sounds really great to me. Sometimes when your life isn't
    going like you would have it go, the best music surfaces to
    the top...........

    I think these cues are really great and I wish you will with
    your filmscore projects.
