    Default Battle of the Champions - Orchestral Action Score

    Hi,

    for a long time I wanted to write something like this: a flamboyant "final fight" track with broad, heroic themes swirling above driving ostinati.

    Originally this piece belongs to the score I wrote for a student film project realised many many years ago. The music was produced via a MIDI-based digital sequencer and of course orchestral sample libraries. Unfortunately, the London Symphony Orchestra was just too busy at the moment for a recording session. :P
    While the last bars in asymmetrical 7/8 meter surely feel a bit overloaded (with syncopated choir fills and such), I am quite happy with the overall arrangement and the final mix. But maybe I am a little bit biased since I listened to it too often and it's just chaos to your ears... ;) If you have some hints on how to improve the mix, sound, orchestration etc. please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

    Dustin

    Greetings! Nice piece, def a good chaotic, I am glad other composers step outside the box sometimes/ do something different.

    What sort of software/ hardware to you currently compose on? I have made the move from MIDI about ten years ago, to virtual orchestras and sequencing, to basically all virtual orchestra and composing the material in real time.

    I really enjoyed the cue, it's clear you have an understanding of music and a flare for the cinematic approach. As with all processes...we all discover that MIDI, all be it fun to work with, has great limitations regarding sound quality, and it's ability to mimic instruments. I would definitely suggest finding a good sampling library and discovering ways to make that as expressive as possible. But, keep at it! If you ever want to compare cues, share notes and ideas about virtual composing, shoot me a message. I have been writing/using this software for about 15 years now~

    Hey, thanks for your great feedback! I will try to follow your hints for my next composition projects. I mostly use VST-based libraries in a MIDI sequencer myself; Giga Nemesis v1.5 for examble. By the way: here is the complete film excerpt, to which this piece as well as two more cues were originally written...



    The film itself is obviously very trashy and extremely LOW-BUDGET (shot in 2005 with a discounter camcorder), but I was primarily interested in the opportunity to finally write film music in the musically incredibly rewarding fantasy genre.
    Hope you'll enjoy it! :)
