Day 484: Space Jammies

Only a moment to upload this and get on with the day.  It's short, but I'm really happy with it.  I think it's because of the horn.  See what you think.

Day 483: In your movie

Here is a short piece that is basically a music cue.  I feel like I've gotten pretty good at this brooding,
intense, ominous, type sound and now need to expand my chops into some other orchestral areas.  I'm thinking that I need to work on Romantic, Adventurous, and Comedic things as well.  Better go watch some movies.

This was all done with Miroslav Strings and samples from Nine Volt Audio Action Drums, Cinematic Edition.

Day 482: Thinking about thinking up

While deleting emails from LinkedIn I stopped and read one of them (I know, crazy).  It was about the "90 Day Music Licensing Challenge".  I investigated it a little more and after very little thought I bought the materials for the program.  For whatever reason I haven't pursued licensing in the way I should have, but after just dipping my toes into the material I am very excited/scared/happy to feel like I can do exactly what's being mentioned.   After having the success I had with writing music for some youtube commercials I feel/know I need to go after this.

I'm thinking about genres/styles to pursue and music that I should be making (that's "hot" right now) and I have some work to do.  I have 17 days left of the 500 Days project and then it will be on to new and different things.  There will be a bit less music for awhile, but hopefully, there will be more money once the new music arrives.

Day 480: Nigh

This is a pretty weird little glitch piece.  There are some strange things going on with compression that weren't intentional, but I decided to just keep them because they were so unique.

In these last 20 days I'm trying to "finish strong" as a friend of mine would say.  I want the material at the end to be as interesting as the beginning.  Truth be told, it should be better since I know a LOT more tricks now.

I'll let you be the judge.

Day 478: Lay Back

A chill, laid back beat for Friday.  Even though the weekend will be lots of work, this beat is still cool.

Audio field recordings are from the Lost and Found Refill from New Atlantis Audio.
