The Journey Begins

Inspired by Disney and Pixar animated films, I composed a short introductory piece called 'The Journey Begins'. This was originally a practice track for orchestration, but I decided to add in a cinematic montage of my favorite 3D animated films (I have yet to learn video editing). I named it 'The Journey Begins' because I feel like my journey through music has just begun, and there is a whole lot to learn from here! Watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq5Qj8f8Dro

Good title. It made me feel that something really good was about to happen.

Thanks!

I'm not really sure what rayman1220 is talking about, sort of an odd comment to make. This sounded almost like a Disney reprise, very nice! The mixing feels like it gets a little muddy at times, mainly due to the frequency of the cymbals if my ears don't fail me. Really lovely though!

SteveSyz responds:

I totally understand with the final mixing being muddy, it hasn't gone through a professional master yet haha (maybe one day!). But thanks overall! I'll definitely look over the cymbals and underlying percussion in the future :D

Waaaaaay to many tunes combined, no clear beat and the instruments doesnt really fit eachother. Otherwise I can see what you where going for :)

SteveSyz responds:

Appreciate the feedback, but as this is a movie introductory movie score style piece, the piece must be complex in terms of the 'tunes' you mention (aka counter points, melody, chord progressions). As for 'beat', again its an orchestral composition, not side-scroller video game music. Instrumentation uses all the instruments in a classical orchestra. Might I suggest listening to cinematic scores (Alan Silvestri, James Newton Howard, etc...)? I don't mean to insult, I'm just curious if you're giving feedback through another scope of musical genre because you mentioned 'tunes' and 'beat' (video game, dubstep, electronic?). Thanks.
