(sorry if this isnt the appropriate forum)
I have managed to find a couple of hopeful directors in a media degree, they say they really like my other music so they asked me to do the music for this film they are working on. I am getting contacts!! yey! .... I was in the process of building up a selection of music to make a demo reel to (attempt) to apply for a scholarship for Music For the Media , and I decided to make a demo for them, but mostly for myself really. The idea was so I could see what sort of sound they liked. They told me it was going to be a dark, film noir, set entirely at night and there was going to be some subtle comedy elements. (I didn\'t touch upon the comedy element in this piece though)
Anyway, this piece was done relatively quickly, started about 3pm and went on until about 3am (with breaks of course) but most of that was trying to figure out why Giga or Cubase wouldn\'t bloody do what I wanted it to do... I must have spent an hour just trying to mix down without errors...
Anyway, I know it can be improved, but what do you think as it is now? Suggestions for next time?
Personally I was quite pleased with it, as its only my second real attempt at doing something orchestral. So I know that the next time I will do better as Ive learned from this. - (And for once I didn\'t use any Distorted Reality!... which seems to make it into everything else Ive done. )
(make sure the file extension is set to to .wma or it probably wont play)
Ps: I know it would nice with Trombones, but I cant afford SAMs just yet, and AO\'s suck *** I think you\'ll agree.
PPS: Hans I love your piano. :-)
PPPS: I havent done any mastering to this track, its \'as is\' straight out of the sequencer.
