    Do these sections sound well connected?

    Hey all! I'm writing a piece that I intend to be about 5-6 minutes long. It's heavily inspired by John Powell's work throughout the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy, especially the final track of the last movie, titled The Hidden World Suite. So far, I have 3 main themes that you'll each hear...

    Here's a theme I wrote, and I figured I could enhance your viewing experience by putting it to a clip from How to Train Your Dragon :) Thoughts?

    Hey everyone! This is a short theme I just wrote for a new medley I'm composing. After listening to it, I realized that it could possibly go well with a movie scene and I instantly thought of this one. So this isn't a re-score. The video was just a something extra I felt like adding for...

    The Streets of Riverstone (Medieval Fantasy with ERA II)

    Recently, I got ERA II Medieval Legends and now took it for a spin to explore it. This track was made exclusively with ERA II and I used most of the instruments included. It's also my first experience with Engine. For the most part, it worked well enough, but every few minutes the sound...

    Fantasy piece inspired by Joe Hisaishi

    Finally had some downtime and decided to write a piece inspired by Joe Hisaishi's mesmerizing scores to some of my favourite manga: Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Had to rewrite it a couple of times, as I have primarily made it with BBC Core in mind but the sound just wasn't there. Turns...

    Fablehaven Books ~~~ via StaffPad

    The piece is about my all-time favorite book series. I'd trade Harry Potter for Fablehaven and Dragonwatch any day. He writes for ages around 12, but there's a mature psychology, moral grasp, and clever plot twists. It's entertaining and immersive enough to have made a perfect way for me to...

    Boss Battle I - JRPG-Style Track - Symphonic Metal

    Hi everyone, I've got another battle track to share. I mixed some metal with orchestra, electronics, and a little bit of jazz(?) elements. All the rock instruments are my own playing, though I performed the drums on an e-kit triggering samples. Let me know what you think!

    What is one piece/song you’ve written that captures you as a whole?

    Hi friends, This thought just came to mind. Throughout our lives as writers and creatives, we’re always trying to put together music that defines who we are, and are proud to share with the world. However, it’s so easy to become overly critical of our own work and lose sight of the progress...

    The Battle

    Went back to a piece that I had started some time last year. I think this is starting to sound pretty good. A few sections I'm not sure about but there's some ideas I think that are quite good. Let me know what you all think :emoji_slight_smile:

    I couldn't sleep...So I wrote this

    The other night I was tossing and turning and had this idea in my head, so I decided to record it. I'm still debating whether to keep it as a solo piano or add some strings as well to change up the colour. Also think I might have milked the ending a bit. Curious what everyone thinks.
