Hey guys!

I've finally started working on the movie score I was supposed to start making months ago. Now, I needed a new approach to music, so I did two small experiment songs. Most of my previous movie score songs have been classical songs with strings, and piano etc. These are not.

Now the feel I was trying to go for was either the title music, or end credits. I am not sure yet. The movie setting is modern. It's about a young man who's father is over protective, so the man (Gabriel) decides to get a "job" and gets dragged into a mess of guns and murder etc. He falls in love with a woman called Andrea, who gets shot because of Garbriel's line of work. The whole thing escalates into a drama driven by revenge

What I would really like to hear from you guys is what sounds bad, good, has this been done before (not necessarily a bad thing), etc..

Any comments are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance Smile

*edit*
The name of the movie is Patos Rekviem.

*second edit*
I added a second song - "To plant a seed".
They are not finished, hence the shortness of the songs (1 minute or so).

*third edit*
Updated To Plant a Seed with a longer version! Please comment this one

Sounds good - could be a good movie soundtrack. Very Happy

This style has been done before, but that's OK, like you say. The intensity seems to fall of too early for me though.

Thanks for the reply mosc!

The intensity fall will be taken care of as the finished version of the song will be longer. Smile

i listened to endgame & think it works fine for what you have in mind. don't worry too much about 'its been done before' for this sort of thing. soundtrack work often has an obligation to expectations set down over a long history. and in that sense, if done right, they are no longer cliches but can become triggers for the audience.

good track. i think my only real criticism is the the timbre on the synth line as it comes in is too... thin sounding? edge is good & you wouldn't want it too robust, but i just felt it needs something. flows fine after that. nice keys. might want to add an accent or two on the way out. Wink

This is good stuff. It reminds me some of Carpenter´s own music for some of his films. I think you are on the right track.

I agree with that solo voice being a bit.. not realy thin.. but rather syntishly uninvolved.. empty..? But that is easy to fix. A possible fix is to duplicate it .. and process the duplicate with .. you name it.. then crossfade the two.

The bass is close, but I am not sure about the levels and the growl. You might want to tweak this a bit on order to get max effect in the theater, and possibly do one version for video/dvd delivery. Anyway, you said you are working on it.. so I don´t really think the latest comment might be that relevant anyway.
