I just wanted to share the one classical piece that had the most influence on my compositional style. Ancient Aliens could not have been the same without it!
Have I mentioned yet that I'm moving to Glasgow in three months to study a masters in composition? Because I am!
You can support me here if you'd like:
So from mid June to mid July I'll be in London for some or all of the time (I haven't really organised accommodation yet, I might go to Paris or Germany or something for some of that time), anyone want to meet up/have any tips for where I should stay/eat/etc?
I'd recommend looking for an air bnb in a part of town that suits - much more convenient than a hotel/hostel. They will most likely be cheaper the less central they are, and central-London can be a bit much in the summer, since there are so many tourists (heh), so if it was me then I'd probably want to look for something in Zone 2 on the Northern side of the city (good transport links).
Also definitely make some time to go to Paris - it's super easy to get there and back from London.
Hey everyone, for anyone who doesn't know me I contributed a bunch of music tracks to Speed of Doom, Resurgence, and a few to several other wads (btsx e1/e2, pl2, cc4, reverie, interception, etc.)
Well, I've been at work on a (non-doom related) album for a few months now, and I finally released it. It's mostly orchestral, in a kind of mix between classical and new age styles. Give it a listen! :)
Some of you might already know of this but I made a mashup kind of midi containing elements from all 21 Doom 2 tracks - some obvious, some subtle. Pretty much just for fun. Thought you all might be interested to hear it!
I thought I'd post my soundcloud page here, to get some of my non-midi songs out there. I've only got 3 songs up there so far but I will upload more as I make them.
You are welcome to have a listen! :)
Barren Planet reminds me of something from Dungeon Keeper - very broody and atmospheric at the beginning, but then it progresses into something mysterious and emotive.
Morning sounds innocent and playful. It's very easy to envisage the sun streaming through a window as it rises. Then, as the track progresses and more layers become apparent, the timpani really helps to create a vibrancy and energy to an otherwise placid and relaxing track.
Clouds is very similar, as though it leads directly of off the previous. It's jolly and rhythmic. That's a very nice synth lead accompanying the strings and piano, too.
These all sound very nice and non-repetitive - cinematic, almost, as if they're part of a movie score. I think they could easily work for something like that. Is this what you had in mind? :P
Keep at it, dude! Quality work as always.
