^^visit this link to watch the film clip with the music^^

This is my second of hopefully a series of film music composition tests I shall be doing over the coming months for practice and to build up a portfolio.

PLEASE NOTE: this composition was written over a film clip and is edited for that, so if some of the changes do not make sense to you please watch the video.

I wrote this piece over a scene from 'Batman Returns' where Batman is fighting the Circus Gang and Catwoman is destroying Shreck's shopping centre.

Catwoman's scene is from 01:35 to 03:01 that is why there is an abrupt change.

Any feedback and constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated as I am always looking to improve.

Thank you and enjoy

Excellent work!

I must give you your due, you certainly a very good job, I think to understand the track though watching the youtube version definetly does add to it.

I think it's a gutsy move, people are going to compare you to Danny Elfman who did sell the Tim Burton Batman look very well with his composition. I really liked the track the only thing I think though is that it seem totally void of Batman, it's so concentrated on the circus that the darkness of Batman has been left slightly aside. Don't be scared to drop down the tone and bring it back up, I felt that Catwomans part was good but just a tad too dominant for the scene.

However none of this can neglect the fact that you did an excellent job. It's great to see you do more orchestral stuff, your name is popping up everywhere here now. Which is far from a bad thing.

Keep it up!

Thank you very much for your comments, I really appreciate you analysing the piece.

I am a big fan of Danny Elfman and Tim Burton and like you said he sold it very well himself, so this scene in particular was hard to do without following his style too much. I shall release more stuff in the future that ventures more into different areas.

I see where you're coming from with regards to the void of Batman. the Catwoman scene was very hard to do because it has some strong elements with the dialogue and having to compose without it can cause a few problems haha.

But once again thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure reading them.
