Hey there,

here is a new cinematic piece i have written for a big game project i am involved in. The story is about the adventures of a brave sorcerer, who ... sorry - dont want to spoil :D Stay tuned. We are working hard on this project and i am really happy to be part of the crew.

My new yamaha monitors have not been delivered, yet. Thats why the mixing could need some revisions. I will fix the issues once the monitors will be ready for use. I would be thankful for any advise to improve my orchestral mixing - which is still difficult for me to do.

I hope you will like my little piece. I am sure the game will be awesome once it will be done. So stay tuned!

Honest reviews and rates are always highly appreciated!

Wow this is absolutely fantastic, I am blown away. This is certainly an inspiration, I've always wanted to be able to do an orchestral piece in this way (albeit I'm lacking in woodwind VSTs!). The dynamics are incredible, all of the different sections bouncing off of eachother - it is so colourful. The brass sounds is great, I love that 'John Williams-esque' staccato brass, and I love the strings. Also I enjoyed the slightly atonal note (I think its the root note flatted?) at about 30 seconds. Very impressive!

I'm going to have to explore more of your works :D

Hey there, thanks a lot Jay-Turner for your kind words. I am still far from being good in orchestration but i always try to learn to get a more realistic and convincing sound. I was heavily inspired by danny elfman here - spiderman and sleepy hollow - both are awesome soundtracks IMO. You can learn a lot about orchestral cinematic pieces if you analyze scores of pros. So if you could find something in the web - use it. Its extremely helpful. I would first try to understand how you create realistic textures within the string section, learn how the instruments interact and also how the different articulations are used in reality. Thats something the most composers out there dont take that serious as they should. After that try to bring in brass to accentuate some parts. Celli and french horn are very epic. Percussion and woodwinds come after that - besides the piccolo flute. I only use it in my compositions after i have written all the other stuff so i can see where i needed some counterpart to very low passages to fill the sound spectre. These are just things i do while composing myself and i dont know what pros do. Nevertheless - if you needed some advise or anything feel free to PM me whenever you want.

Peace :D

Man this is an awesome tune, a monument in voicing as much as in melody and atmosphere, full of masterful and magical moments of majestical ambiance and adverse awe-inspiring glimpses into an otherworldly sphere where sound is the empowering force behind the experience. Was intending to leave some constructive feedback but I can think of nothing to improve, hoping to someday hear this in the scenario for which it was intended. Great stuff!

Oh man - somehow i totally forgot about replying to your very nice review - shame upon my head! So i hope that even after all that time that passed you stil accept my deeply felt gratitude and thanks! I am quite excited about this sorcerer project since its my first big game project and the team is doing a wonderful job. We plan to show a first playable demo @pax and hope kickstarter will consider us as worthy to support. We will see. Plz keep the fingers crossed :D

Thanks so much again for your nice works man!!

Very Kingdom Hearts- esque in my opening. Very epic and fun to listen to. Its almost overwhelming while you listen to it which is a compliment btw. The choir is amazing and really breath taking. The song itself i could see in a full action movie. Well done

Thanks man! I still didnt have the time to take a listen to the kingdom hearts soundtrack, but i have heared a lot of good things about it - i will definitely check it out asap :D What i really loved was the soundtrack of dragon quest 8 (one of my favourit square titles - simply awesome). Maybe you also will enjoy it - its very relaxing.

Thanks a lot for leaving your thoughts here. I am glad you enjoyed the piece :D

Regards,
Chris

Sitting here stunned. Your flute glissandos and choir are impeccable, and the smooth progression from french horn to harp is perfection. The tubular bells that mark the beginning of a new sequence are also a great choice. You always outdo yourself, SoundChris! Wonderful work!

Hey Elspeth, i am really happy you liked my little piece :D I think i have learned a lot of new stuff with this piece - especially about cinematic harmonic progressions and stuff - i really had a lot of fun while creating this. The only thing which still is an issue in my opinion is the mix. Mixing a full orchestra and avoiding to get the mix muddy is still very difficult for me. But i also think this one is much better than sons of valhall.

I hope we will hear from each other again soon. Would be interesting to hear how you did enjoy the GDC in SF (i envy you - i really would have loved to be there, too ;D ). All the best and thank you so much for your support!

All the best for you,
Chris
