Some brief BGM for a scene were the hero is told of a ancient legend that is tied to his destiny. Again, I don't have a plot written out so I'm mostly covering RPG ground with common tropes within them. Hope you enjoy it. You can tell I was playing Skyrim while I was making this =p

Inspirations- The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Game of Thrones, Assassin's Creed

Tools: Logic 9, Kontakt 5, Symphobia 2, True Strike

Mostly agree with descara here. The piece starts and ends nicely but the middle is a bit cluttered.

I'll keep on studying about voice leading and orchestral composition so I'll try to improve on cleaning up that cluttering sound. Thanks for the positive rating ^^

Very atmospheric. Quite a lot of things though I reacted to, however:

The woodwind melodies are a bit messy - not so much in the beginning, but as more voices are added in, things get pretty chaotic and aimless.

Speaking of the woodwinds, they really overpower the rest of the orchestra to the point where it's rather annoying - the cellos and basses are so weak, they're barely audible!

Also, check the cello and bass writing, there seems to be some funky intervals - you've got to be careful with intervals between parts in lower register. If you're having cellos and basses in the same "layer" (as they so frequently are), octaves are nearly always most effective interval - the cello then reinforces and builds upon the basses timbre.

Kudos on really capturing the scene you describe, though!


TequilaShot responds:

Thank you for the CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. Much more helpful then, "Meh, was ok but could be better."

I had a hard time with coming up with the melody and I tried my best with the flute and clarinet duo but even my music teacher basically stated what you said (This was a project I did for Spring Semester). I might try altering it so the melodies aren't too dissonant.

I'm still learning to mix and master orchestral instruments and looking back, I could have toned down the woodwinds. Just gotta keep trying to improve right? :)

Again, I have to agree with the bass instruments though it seemed like they were acceptable here but I'll take your advice about keeping the cello and bass in octave intervals with each other.

You seem to know what your really talking about with orchestral arrangment and voice leading. Do you know any books that could help me with orchestral composer. Thank you for the feedback and positive rating =)
