This is my first post, but I've been a silent listener in this forum for almost a year. I generally write musical-type stuff that doesn't lend itself to using any garritan sounds. However, I'm working on a musical based on Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher" and one of my jobs was to have Usher himself write a piece in a slightly anachronistic 1830's romantic style that would still fit in a musical of sorts. This is a first draft.
He plays the piece on piano and the rest will be piped in via speaker as he describes it. The vibrato strings at the end are stand-ins for what should be a "choir of 50,000" that I'm working on.... Usher's mental-state inspiration was "Scriabin," and that's where I got the title as well.
I would appreciate any sort of feedback- both compositional and otherwise. I'm looking for some good explosion sounds for the cannonade in the middle, if anyone knows of any.
