Dreams of Flight

30MB! This might need a moment to load.

A piece that was originally supposed to be my application for music universities. Written on the side, and over the course of 2 years this is probably still my most elaborate work. Dreams of Flight contains 4 movements, similar to a symphony but not following the rules excactly. The piece is portraying all sorts of excitements one could get from orchestral music.

Released in 2012, this piece marked my 5th year of composing music. I want to thank everyone who performed in this piece and helped me with the realization of it!

Oboe, English Horn, Tin & Low Whistle performed by Kristin Naigus
Clarinet performed by Sean Lin
Flute performed by Daniela Wolf
Bassoon performed by Berker Sen

Additionally, here's an in-sequencer look at Limitless, the last movement of the piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thA0UfpFUeE

Do you use a program like the Hans Zimmer collection? Native Instruments programs like Kontakt? Really like this. I strive to reach this level one day. For now... here I am! :D

Danman87 responds:

Not using any of the Hans Zimmer collections. For this piece I mostly used Eastwest's samples, including their Hollywood Strings and Brass libraries, as well as Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs, among a few others. All the woodwinds are live recorded though! :)

REALLY?????????????????? xD

Wow, this is really good. Do you actually have a band to conduct, or do bands play your pieces?

Danman87 responds:

Thanks man! Most of this was done using orchestral samples from Eastwest, next to the real performances of course. Sadly still lacking an orchestra in my basement! :D
