I've written about 35-40 minutes of demo-level music for television, film and video game clips since Christmas and I decided to condense a few of the tracks into a 4 minute mix of stuff.
It's all very much work in progress, and this particular mix is heavily biased towards my orchestral work, but feedback would be much appreciated. I'm looking to go into the industry of music for various forms of new media when I graduate. The first couple of clips are inspired by the Call of Duty video games.
Thanks for listening, I'm hoping to have a solid portfolio up soon
Sounds good. What sample packs are you using for this?
From an orchestrational standpoint, I'd say that there's a pretty heavy overuse of the gong/tamtam (a bit hard to tell the two apart sometimes) hit. It can be really striking in small doses, but like this it feels sort of predictable and detracts from its climactic effect. Granted, it'd be somewhat masked in a video game setting, but it might still be worth considering. Just my 2c.
