Hi there, as a new member I'm grabbing the chance to announce one of my newest compositions: "Trance Trailer." Trance Trailer is for the main part "Uplifting Trance" including typically film trailer elements. I merged both worlds into one epic piece. I used Omnisphere, Soundmaster One and 2...
The following are some moments that immediately came to mind when thinking of occasions that blew me away when I watched them for the first time. They are mostly simple moments that were different than expected and therefore had a great impact and made some impression on me.
In no particular...
How do you get that orchestral film score sound?
What are the key mixing elements to achieving that sound?
It always seems "set back" and has a unique sound quality.
Where do you aim to have peak dBFS and LUFS for the loudest part of a piece (in mixing and/or mastering)
Do you apply any EQ...
Lately I thought to expose more of French film composers, probably unknown to most of us.
Why ? Because I think there's a special vibe in French film music, something I can't really find in European and US scoring.
So, I will post here bio & links for composers from any period of...
After watching the @Spitfire Team Summer Class on film scoring by Homay Schmitz, I decided to download the clip and give it a go.
Never realised how hard it is to time your music to what's happening on screen!
Here's my little soundtrack + video:
And here is the slightly amplified...
Hi everyone, happy Monday! I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Christopher Tin (Civilization IV, Crazy Rich Asians) last week, where we discussed working in the music industry, his creative process, sample libraries, and much more! Please enjoy.
Timestamps are included in the video to...
I realized recently that I never posted this two-years old work, so here it is. During spring 2018 I scored “Le Saut” (“The Jump”), an animated short film made entirely in watercolors by a student from art school Émile Cohl in Lyon, France, as her graduation project. You can...
I am one of those who are amazed by the music of Tom and Jerry, and similar cartoons that don't have much dialogue and are only supported by very good background music. I tried to do this to one of the Avengers scenes. I cut and just took a scene without dialogue and then tried to make funny...
I'm Lukas (Anevis) from a very tiny village in South Bohemia, Czech Republic. I've been playing piano for about 10 years now and I've been wanting to learn to play guitar and drums for a while, but still didn't find the courage to do so yet I guess. Music has been my hobby since I was...

Hi everyone !
I'd like to share with you one of my latest work, the soundtrack of “Shutdown”, an animated short film from four students of l'École des Nouvelles Images in Avignon, France. The movie has a peculiar atmosphere going on, which made the work on textures quite interesting :)
Hey composers! Today we're diving into my first course review - all about film scoring for the individual who wants to dip their toes into the field, and learn the best practices for navigating through this industry. Please enjoy! :)
Check out the course here...
I wanted to share a story of which I'm very proud of.
Since I was little I always dreamed of being a film composer after hearing the fantastic soundtrack of Once Upon A Time In The West. I took keyboard an piano lessons and after a while I really got addicted to the whole...
We are Olympia Productions and we will be releasing a brand new British fantasy drama TV series in 2019 based on Greek gods and the life of a demigod at university.
We are currently in the stages of shooting a pilot and seeking funding from
I am a German composer but I have been living in the Netherlands since 2009! Hope to see you around in the forum.
This is my soundcloud:
And my website:
How do you do orchestral mixing (and mock-ups) for trailers, film, tv and games ?
So, I've done this in different ways. But which way do you prefer? Where do you place different sections of the orchestra in the stereo field? Do you put bass string parts central or to the right? Where do you pan...
Hi, everyone! Would love to hear some feedback. This was my first attempt at this sort of genre. The whole "film" music thing is pretty new to me. For anyone curious, I used a lot of various libraries, but definitely heavy on 8Dio, Spitfire, and a bit of Heavyocity. Thanks!
I had some spare time in-between projects so I looked for some trailers or short videos that I could re-score. I came across this 4 minute cinematic for the game World of Warcraft and noticed that it didn't have dialogue (just voice-over) so without hearing the music, sfx, or...
Just wanted to say "hello" to this great forum. Have enjoyed reading some posts.
I'm a composer and music producer who has had the wonderful privilege of working with some outstanding talent across a variety of genres. I started out as a drummer (hold the jokes! :) ) and have grown into...
So it would be nice to hear what you guys think? Promise to listen to all feedback!

I just want to share with you my orchestral Reel with Recordings in New Zealand with the NZSO and the Park Road production Team, and also in Skopje Macedonia.
I've learned a lot in this forum and It's a pleasure to show you what I do.
Curious to hear what working film and TV composers have found, and what they think is easier, where are the pitfalls / benefits?
So, if you have the time...thanks, share your knowledge!
IMO; I think I'd be fine delivering the stems and not so protective letting the overlords mess around with...
I have been having a break for a couple of months. But now I feel creative again. I hope I have not forgotten it all.
I would be thrilled if you use 2 minutes of your day and listen to the track I am working on now.
All, and I mean ALL, feedback is welcome.
I am about to publish this track ''Rabbits''. Here is a short story of the composition:
This track was composed as part of a series of 5-7 compositions for a part 3 of feature film ''White Rabbits'' Org. Hvide Kaniner''.
The main plot of the film is a religious sect, which...
Just spent a few hours this afternoon having a go at this! I didn't have a recording at hand so its done from memory and I doubt it is all correct but was a bit of fun!
Just testing a new template, any feedback for the balance? I haven't really spent a lot of time setting up the reverbs or...
Now it is 5 (or maybe 6 weeks) since I started making this kind of music. I will call my music Epic soundtrack/trailer/filmmusic.
I would be very happy if you will listen and tell me what you think about my piece. Thanx!
I've only recently gotten back into composing and for some reason offered my services to a mate who was doing a feature film.
I've put up a few things on another forum but don't really get the critical (i.e. tear it to shreds) feedback I need.
Anyway, here are a few scenes if anyone...
Just thought I'd take a moment and introduce you to my new website, http://www.dearvillainmusic.com To coincide with the launch of the site, I've released a brand new album of orchestral music which I hope you'll check out here
i was listening to a podcast a few minutes ago and came across this:
i'm definitely going out and supporting it! this looks awesome!
spread the word if you haven't already heard about it. For some reason, i don't think it's gotten a lot of word of mouth mainstream and it's got all of the...

Hi there guys. As this is the largest collection of extremely talented audio people on the internet, I would really appreciate any and all feedback on this track.
I am trying to get into trailer music, but my long term goal is film.
I'm currently in the last year of my BA, the assignment i propose to present is based on a particular artist. As i'm heavily influenced by the film music genre i decided i wanted choose a composer. The brief is to choose a significant artist in relation to their cultural, social and...
So I've been listening to Two Steps From Hell for years and have always loved their work. It's different because it doesn't sound like it's specifically made for trailers, you can actually listen to it as it's own entity and immerse yourself in the music. But I've always wondered why he has...
Hey guys! I haven't posted any music on this forum before, so I thought I'd start with this.
I know it's been done before, but I wanted to try and get it to sound as close to the real thing as possible. Thanks for listening!
Wondering if anyone has completed or is currently studying at Berklee Online? A friend of mine is currently looking to get into Music Composition for Film & TV and wondering if the courses are recommendable.
So I am searched Google and You Tube for answers, but with no result.
My question goes: How can I ''Lock/freeze'' the video/movie in Logic Pro X when changing tempo?
I am aware of the great audio flex function, but this, as I can see does not affect the video/movie. - So it...
