A short, dark trailer type theme I have composed after a short return from work.

Sounds really professional, my friend! I keep waiting for you to get a scoring job... if only you had time! My only thing with this is that the ending is rather abrupt. Maybe consider reworking it or try experimenting with other ending strategies.

Well at least this way I might manage to do a few game scores. If you were doing them, I'd be out of a job. :P

Keep compos(ed/ing)!

Emid responds:

These are very supportive words Samulis but I don't think I am equipped enough with the knowledge, experience and expertise to do anything close to what you are doing. I am still learning from you guys and hope to have some improvements bit by bit.

Many thanks for your presence which is enough for me to have a boost.

This is fantastic! Wonderful build up. I can imagine a scene as it's playing. Awesome work!

Emid responds:

Thank you very much Chemiqals. Glad you like it.

Awesome work Emid, like bassfiddlejones said It made me think of MGS aswell and maybe a bit of Far Cry 3 ,mostly because of the percussions (you should check the ost out you'll know what I mean :P).
You're very talented and I'm really looking forward for your next track!
btw which VSTs did you use for this? sounds amazing.

Emid responds:

Thank you so much Mattashi for such a kind words. I am definitely no way near you guys, just an amateur trying to do something in my rare free time. I will surely look into the Far Cry 3 OST as well as MSG. Regarding Vsts, I bought U-he Zebra a few days back and played around with it. You should check out its Youtube video and also watch its predecessor, The Dark Zebra, whose sounds were designed by Hans Zimmer himself for The Dark Knight movie. If you are into sound design then its a great plugin. However, I haven't used any of the Dark Zebra sound's in this piece. Other than that my all time favourite LASS 2, then EWSO platinum, Cinesamples Brass, Omnisphere, Evolve mutation and Iron guitars.
Glad you enjoyed.

Awesome atmosphere... I really like what you've got going on here. You're definitely improving as a composer and your production value is only increasing. I'm impressed! The percussion and sound design really make this piece. Are you a Metal Gear Solid fan? It makes me think of MGS instantly, which is a great thing. The only complaint I have is with the ending - you can probably smooth that out with a gradual decrescendo or turn it into a loop somehow. At any rate, top notch work friend! Looking forward to hearing more from you!

Emid responds:

I remember your recommendation of listening Bear McCreary and I was very impressed. One of the reasons because he likes doing experimentation by incorporating unusual instruments in his music which is why you recommended him as you saw me doing something like this. Zebra is an amazing plugin and most of the things were done in it. These white noises are crazy and I really enjoyed morphing them. Not very much into gaming and never played MSG, can't say. Ending...yeah, I was more into publishing it due to time constrain. Thank you so much and BIG thank for having your presence here again.

Very good job, I like those experimental dark sounds C:
keep it up Emid!

Emid responds:

Hey Joseph good to see you :)
Just bought Zebra plugin and the 'experiment' is with it. Thank you bro :)
