So I decided I would try and write an orchestral piece, which I had never tried before. So I sat down at Logic pro 9, newly-bought with my piggy bank money, and came up with this. The whole time I was working on it, I had in mind it being the score to a short movie, so I have gun shots and explosions (lol). The big explosion after the intro was at one point eq'ed perfectly, but then it got messed up for some reason and I put it back together not as as well as I originally did. So it is bassy, watch out if you have nice big speakers :D. I worked over winter break on this a lot, and I think it has come out pretty nicely. I worked hard on mixing all the instruments, and I had very limited knowledge of compression, limiting, eq'ing and making all 92 tracks and 302 bars sound good. I played around with underlying synthesizers, basses, and trying to make the drums sound good and blend. I had to downgrade the Mp3 quality to 224kb or something so it was under 15mb to upload to here, but I think you can download the hq wave file at my soundcloud page. Feedback is appreciated! Please keep in mind that it was written for a "film" so the second part is a bit repetative but that is the nature of the two scenes.

EVERYTHING was played by me on my keyboard through MIDI, I used no loops or anything.

Thanks, it was fun to make :)

p.s. I wasn't really sure what genre this was, so I just put it in classical and hoped people wouldn't get discouraged from clicking on it.

I think the progressions in this song was what impressed me the most. The way it moved...like a woman in heat...aaah yeah...women in heat...

The emotion in this song is great! Around 3:44 was my favourite part, loved the chords used! Nice track!

I see potential for your musical skill to grow. It's already quite good. There is a definite visualization going on here, which is good! It took a little too long to build the instruments and atmosphere, but that may have just been because you had some dark, underlying cool shit imagined for that part. In any case, regardless of knowledge, you have a very good sense. You remind me a lot of myself, actually.

Keep it up! :)

Thanks, it is a pretty long song (the longest i've ever written down) so there are some parts that are a bit dragged out but you're right about why :D I play the piano by ear, like if you played me a song from the radio I can play it on the piano with 2 hands and chords and everything. It's useful for parties (especially when girls are there ;P). Because of that, I guess I do have a certain sense for music. A bunch of my friends are like me, but they play violin or guitar.
