Goodbye (Live Recording)

Author Comments

This was one of my film re-scoring projects for my portfolio. The instrumentation is very small but very effective to create a soft and delicate sound to compliment strong emotions in the film this was scored to. This track was recorded using live players on a scoring stage and the ensemble was conducted by me.

If you want to download and check out the full score (sheet music) you can download it here:


Parker Davis - Violin
Steve Chiu - Violin
Jenine Irabagon - Oboe
Juan Rosales - Flute
Skylar Van Joolen - Piano
Jessica Yap - Additional Strings

I understand that the music is generally the same and kind of drags on for a while, but this is what some scenes in film music calls for. It was actually quite difficult to make something both sad and uplifting at the same time.


Yes, it's a bit minimalistic and generic, but still really enjoyable to listen to.

I found the ending kind of abrupt... while the whole song was already quite subdued, I felt it could still use some winding down. I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to this goodbye song when it ended!

It's a film score and it's common for a film score to end like that since it's not meant to be a standalone music piece, but something to complement what's happening in the film. Moments in film music that leaves you hanging is a great way to segue into another scene, or resolving plot material. In this case, the film cue actually transitions into songscore, where in the film it plays a licensed pop tune a second after my last note hits and fades.

Favorited. And I also think that a soundtrack doesn't have to sound complicated to feel great. Thanks for sharing this composition, it'll perfectly fit any serene and romantic moment. That's a real quality job you've done!
