Sounds wonderful. And I mean that in the full sense of the word. The sound is very 'big production' like, like an epic movie, video game or something.
Very impressive! I haven't watched The Hobbit yet but it reminded me of Lord of the Rings nontheless (2:24: compare to "A Knife in the Dark" ^^). My favorite part is the transition at around minute 1:00 where the sound suddenly changes from being dreamy to dark and threating, much like the end of Mufasa's death scene from The Lion King.
By the way... where did you learn how to write music like that? It sounds really professional!
Thanks for listening, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Haha yeah some veeery similar parts.. oh well :P
I studied music at college and uni. They were performance courses (I play guitar), so didn't go thattt heavily into theory, but what I did learn has helped. It also helps to just rip off other composers sometimes. If you're listening to a score and you hear something that sounds impressive, learn it and try to find out what they're doing. When I do this it almost always turns out to be a borrowed chord from a different key haha. I guess my ears just find that cool.
Anyway the more you do that, the more little tricks you pick up and it eventually gets easier to just apply the same principles to your own music.
Perfect. Just perfect. No other words do this piece justice.
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
You're straight to my favorite composers.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
