Music Soundtrack Example

I’ve put together another video on YouTube. This one is focused on the music, not the video.

The music is an original composition for potential use as background music to a video — a soundtrack.

For the sounds used, I used instruments from Komplte 8 Ultimate. There are 2 Massive tracks (Blue in Grey and Found Objects). There are 2 Evolve Mutations 2 tracks (Aqueous Slammerz and Fartherest Star Menu) as well as Violins and Cellos using the animator feature of Sessions Strings Pro (pop 3 & 4) and a solo violin patch.

The original composition was put together in Sibelius 7. The melodic elements are based on a 12 tone row. The percussive elements (the mutations tracks in particular) are based on rhythmic figures.

The score was transferred to Reaper DAW via MIDI. The sounds were rendered from the above mentioned instruments.

Your comments, either here or on YouTube are welcomed.

From arrangement to recording

After considerable difficulty with video cap and editing software, I’ve finally gotten two new videos done.

I decided to make an arrangement. I did it in Sibelius 7 and Reaper. The first video shows the process of making the arrangement. This arrangement was for violin, cello, piano, guitar, bass and drums.

The 2nd video shows taking the MIDI from Sibelius and putting it into Reaper DAW and making a recording.

I welcome your comments and questions, either here or on Youtube.

New addition to the cataog

We’ve added a new instrumental mp3 by the G-Flat Group to the catalog.

Going Around In Circles

A double-length mp3, electronic sounding, ambient, environment piece. Many recordings these days use 24, 36 or more tracks before making a final stereo mp3 file. This piece consists of two tracks with a third, rhythm track generated by the first two tracks.

Enjoy, and we welcome any comments about the music.
