Title: AmpharosAndy's Compositions (Monster Hunter Style)
Post by: AmpharosAndy on October 04, 2016, 03:49:58 PM
I got into music by playing NSM sheets of my favourite video game songs and composing my own little ditties in similar styles. I'm now an aspiring composer who enjoys occasionally doing film/game music. If people enjoy it, I'll keep you all updated from here/my youtube channel.

Let me know what you think of my most recent thingy:

I like that tribal, almost primitive drive going on in it, with all that shifting meters and such

Thank you, InsigTurtle. It's finding that balance between complexity and being follow-able that I was really looking for, whilst sounding good too XD

Took a listen of your Symphonic Images No. 3! It sounds...strangely reminiscent of ambient soundscapes. I enjoy how your melodies float about and don't resolve - it's really good for background listening, and I can imagine it being really nice for a quiet stage/forest city of some sorts ^^

I think the problem with looping ambient tracks like this is that people tend to space out and stop listening after some time - personally I started spacing out after around the second minute, and only when the rhythm shifted around the 4-minute mark I started listening again. If that was your goal, then well done! ^^ If not, consider doing some "evolving pads" - in an orchestra setting that means the gradual build-up of texture.

I do, however, really enjoy your orchestration. Long string chords remind me of Sibelius, and the whole nature mysticism thingy. The difference is that Sibelius had melodies and progression, but y'know. It's a different style of music, I presume ^^

Overall though, well done! Interesting harmonies, fun sounds. I'll be checking out more of your stuff soon :)

Dude, I space out every time I listen to this XD Kind of intentional, kind of not ;)

I agree with everything you said, as it seems you've got the gist. It's great to have a non-biased opinion for a change. Thanks for taking the time to check it out and also tell me about it! (Your arrangement competition piece was awesome too - probably shouldn't delve into details as a judge but hey ho).

This is my first somewhat successful piece that I've written and it was written around this time last year. Let me know what you think haha :)
