View Full Version : Music for a horror film

09-11-2016, 08:10 AM

I tried my best to compose the score to a little horror production called „Sarah”, a short film (18-19 min) produced by film students from all departments about a series of murderous events around a remote cabin the woods. It was executed for educational purpose only; nobody involved got any money. The film is to be released online after an initial promotion phase for short film contests, festivals etc.
However, I am eager to get some early feedback on the music, especially some hints concerning the mix and the overall sound. Is it realistic enough? If not, what sucks the most? Of course, there were no real accoustic instruments involved. Fell free to tel me what you think about it. :) Maybe you'll recognize the major motif (a falling fourth/tritone shift) here or there. ;)

not bad man. the end and resolution was pretty good. just noticed the sweep was really rough needs a good reverb to blend it better like a convolution verb. some piano keys i noticed were louder then others, i would solve this with compression cause then your squashing the other ones that sound good unless you automate and a/b the compression. if you have a midi track i would just adjust the velocityies of those last couple keys and if its in wav cut them out and reduce volume. i didnt heart all of them just listen to one and figured my feedbnack might be of some use. anyways good job man
