    Where have I heard this?

    Hi,

    recently it occured to me that most people here only know me as a live guy. But actually I am in the same boat as everybody here trying to make the samples sing and dance. On the long term I am even looking at myself more as a composer than a studio or live musician only (while it can be handy to be both).

    So I am going to post some work here done with samples only if you don't mind, and all comments are welcome. I am still in that part of the learning curve where you change your mind every week about these mixing topics and such but here is a theme that I probably picked up somewhere and can't remember where. This is the reason why I will probably not expand it but maybe you like it.

    Warning: Slow music here, haha.

    Cheers
    Hannes

    Hannes,

    This sounds like the piece called 'Nocturne', from the CD 'Songs From A Secret Garden'.
    It's not in the same key, and there's a small difference in the first notes, but then it is exactly like it.

    I have this CD, haven't listened to it for quite some time... I think I'll enjoy listening to it all over again...

    Thanks Yudit,
    I originally thought I maybe heard it in a film about an asian journey played with an erhu. But obviously I was mistaken, so thank you for clarification!

    I thought I almost heard a Rocky quote in there. I liked what you did, btw. Very nice.

    Thank you linwood for listening. Must listen to Rocky now (again).

    I changed into a version with more tamed dynamics. I tend to overdo this.

    Not really a rip off, but when I heard it, it made me think of this for some reason...it's hard to forget those 4 notes. I love yours better, bro!

    HAHA indeed very similar.
    Well, I guess it is one of the most basic challenge/response themes that begin upwards ... too bad I cannot use it

    Yup, Nocturne it is. You can check it out here:

    I don't know if Northernsounds filters out urls. If the above doesn't show up, go to youtube and search for "eurovision 1995 winner norway" and the video with the flag is the tune.

    Don't worry though, Harry Gregson-Williams used almost the same opening motif for his Shrek Fairytale theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOEc4kygof0), which just goes to show that in tonal music, it's all been done at some point

    It could also be Jupiter, Jerusalem or even Postman Pat. Just use it and stop worrying....!

    I have heard it too! But you can really tell you know more than most of us about playing strings. nicely done! I also posted a piece a while back I was almost positive I had heard it before (in the Garritan listening place) and fortunately no one recognized it. Maybe I heard it in a dream.

    In your case you can still take credit for the arrangement. Some arrangements are far more creative than some original songs!
