Please fill in the form to connect with updates and practical scoring information which you can apply to your film:
So where and when is the optimal time to use dissonance and what are the real world applications of dissonance for us as composers?
Thanks for your support fans, the Piano Works CD available here:
For building up ethereal otherworldly textures to supplement my #Sibelius orchestral creations #Logic is undoubtedly a necessity.
Writing idiomatically is taught during music studies, applying idiomatic techniques is a way of thinning the act of process ...
What we are aiming for with the #trailer genre is a heightened sense of reality and animation.
Thanks for following listen to my works here:
The most subtle element in conveying the flavour and style of your music is the articulation and phrasing ..
The term 'classical music' was coined in the early 19th century to describe the period from Bach to Beethoven.
I'm the audience I don't know what a soft #synth or what musical form is, all I know I'm not connecting with the #narrative & that bores me.
The largest musical instrument in the world is the organ in the Municipal Auditorium, in Atlantic City.
In The Taking of Pelham 123 score Shire captures the musical aesthetics of the 70s urban landscape in #Schoenberg's web.
Expressive techniques (pp, ff, cresc, rit, rubato) add character to our music, their absence makes a composition sound immature & lifeless.
Question. Anybody know which notes were banned by the Church in the 16th C?
Upon his dismissal from St. Stephen's cathedral for cutting a choirboy's ponytail Joseph Haydn had nothing but a few shirts to his name.
Paganini's violin virtuosity was thought by many people to be diabolical ...
During Bach's lifetime he was most famous as an organ virtuoso, rather than a composer.
Haydn died in 1809, but in 1820 his body was exhumed to have his remains moved. It was discovered that his head was missing.
For post-production work #Logic is an absolute necessity!

The amazing @david_c_hewitt had past my expectations and made a rough edit (visually) of the trailer sound brilliant!

We may think atonality is best suited to horror films, or at the very least thrillers, to conjure up feelings of suspense.
Knowing your personal and emotional preferences is often the key to pinpointing and unlocking the exact emotion contained within a scene.
After attending the first performance of Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro, the Emperor Joseph II's only comment was "Too many notes".
Working on a 0 budget? Warner communications paid $28 million for the legal use of Happy Birthday, ouch! .... Is your film's score legal?

What is the real world application for each technique and where in our scores should we consider using atonality or dissonance?
Mendelssohn left the score for his A Midsummer Night's Dream overture in a cab, and had to rewrite every note from memory.
