I just completed my first orchestral soundtrack piece. I am very proud of this as it is my first real composition complete with violins, flutes, and a driving, clear piano which I spent hours searching for. I created this piece all myself, starting out at the piano a few months ago and creating the theme, and then moving to my computer and getting everything in perfect order. It turned out better than I expected, so I decided to go all out and make a whole suite for it.
You can hear a shortened (1:30), online-quality version of the song at the ‘Coming Soon’ homepage of www.branhambric.com. I thought if we’re to be coming soon then I might as well have a bit of something different than just a text message. There is a little button in the top, left corner, which will begin to play automatically after it is loaded.
There is another version I will record next week which will include the vocal power of a full cathedral choir, if I can get my hands on it by then. For this one, I made use of the Miroslav Philharmonik Orchestra (and I didn’t even have to fly to Germany to use it).
For the comment box: for those of you who have read the book, does the theme fit? For those who haven’t, does the theme have a reflective and slightly dark edge, though not too sad?
