MAC13 Orchestral Audio Contest Submission.
A cinematic scene of a living forest fighting against evil.
nice at first it sounds like a rabbit hopping which i reeeeaaaaaaaally and then like the forest turned haunted and was fighting in a war 5 stars
Thank you robomatrix, glad you enjoyed!
Man love everything in this track. What a masterpiece! I would certainly get hold of Albion in future as I adore Albion strings. Congrats on holding 3rd position in the contest. Keep it up! :)
Wow, thanks Emid. Haha I didn't even know I got third until I read your comment. I'm glad that it was well recieved!
This is awesome ! Nice track...
Thanks Gdabz, glad you enjoyed!
Very fine cinematic music. What libraries are you using?
This piece could benefit from a few harp glissandi or the like. Although their a bit cliche, they add a really nice feel. I really like the dark turn around 1:25 when the harp FINALLY comes in... consider experimenting with other motifs common for harp, as merely arpeggios does the instrument quite an injustice to its true value.
I really like your work on the orchestration in this- very clean, very well executed. The composition is also quality, but I find the cinematic nature causes the piece to become less than memorable- it doesn't have much of a melody- most motifs are founded in the harmony, such as the staccato flute line that surfaces from time to time.
Thanks, im glad you enjoyed it! I'm mostly using Spitfire Albion, with most of the melodic percussion coming from Kontakt 5.
You make a good point on the harp, i'll definitely be working on integrating more articulations and techniques with the harp in the future.
Thanks again for the praise on the orchestration, and I can understand your qualms on having the piece be more memorable. That being said, as you mentioned I was working to create a scene rather than to only define a person, place or thing and using motifs in scenes are usually saved for parts of significance. The only motif I wanted to push for was the "heroic" theme of the forest, showing up @ :28 and then the full reprisal from 1:41 to 2:16. But maybe I could've made that more apparent lol.
Would love to hear your thoughts (Gonna check your stuff out now)!
Good job, Jordain
