My latest venture

Update: Please go check out Brian Gubicza's great interpretation of "The Brave" here :

Please also find the link to his full blog in my links, it's definitely worth a look.

I've always found it very inspiring to listen to soundtracks while I'm drawing. There's a lot of similarities in drawing images and composing music, such as mood, contrast, story telling and of course composition etc. For a long time I've wanted to compose my own orchestral/cinematic music and finally did my own piece this weekend. I had a really great time making it and man, this kinda music demands some heavy computing power!!! You can hear it or download it here:

This is my very first attempt and would of course appreciate your opinion:)

I'm one of these who rarely like a piece of music on a first listen,and especially soundtrack type pieces as I like to see the images that go with them.But on the whole on that first listening I liked what I heard,it made me think that it would be cool with a game cinematic,kind of like Warcraft or something.Anyway cool work.
My musical talent gets only as far as playing Air Guitar.

Hans, you are a multi talented genius haha. This is great, your first ever attempt? wow. Impressed. Yeh I can imagine something really cool to go with it, u should animate something to go along!

Maybe a little more ambience in places would be good, but all in all i think its really well done.

Ken :D

Love that you are branching out to creating music as well as drawing. I can see this as a piece for some great action of some hero type character. Pretty impressive Hans!

Great piece.

definitely feels like it would fit with an epic or adventure title.

the bells made me think of winter/snow and the heavy drums were like a call to battle similar to Dvorak's New World Symphony (Movement 3 and 4)

the thunder was too digital for me.
It would be really great to hear this with a full chorus/symphony

but a great effort nonetheless!

Nice! Love the composition ~ it does sound a little bit MIDI-ish here and there, but I think for your first attempt, it was awesome! A tweak here and there would make it perfect for an epic battle of some sort! Are you working on the animation to go with it now? ;)

I love soundtracks, and usually I gauge them on the first ten seconds. I tell you, I listened to The Brave up to the end. I would agree to one of the comments in acid planet that it needs just a little bit of reverb to create some "thickness" to the orchestra. But man, overall, it sounds GREAT! I love the melody and your choice of instruments, vocals and effects( (of course, the canons are perfect for El Pacifico!). Very impressive, Hans, especially for a first attempt. I'm actually setting up for an indie film ( and maybe you'll be interested. By the way, Ill be in Orlando for two weeks this Christmas. Again, bravo!

Hans man, you’re a Jack of all trades. This is really quite an impressive track of music, and it’s on such an epic scale. If I ever make my multibillions dollar epic about the history of the whole entire world, I’ll be sure to give you a ring!
