Heya guys This is actually the first time Ive posted my music to be listened to on here since i started using this place ages ago. I suppose its about time These are two tracks which have been completed for a fantasy strategy game called ''Battles of Norghan''...which has probably been floating in a few posts....dunno....anyway: ''Centaur''s Lament'': This is the main theme, which is pretty simple but fairly pretty in nature. ''Norghan Battle Waltz'': This is a battle sequence based on the main theme above....its pretty Zimmerish (Gladiator waltz style). It gets pretty epic towards the end. Tell me what you guys think. I always appreciate feedback. Thanks! -Scott Buckley www.mp3.com.au/scottbuckley

I like both a great deal; the battle theme is suitably martial and the Lament has a nice touch of melancholy to it (for synths anyway). Let''s see if I can throw out some constructive criticism...I felt as if the battle song was a little longer than it''s main theme can properly support; there''s a spot from about 2:30-3:20 where it goes away entirely in favor of gradually crescendoing repeating line, that I think sounds particularly empty. Maybe it was meant to build tension, but IMO the song would be stronger if a couple of bare spots like that were trimmed.

Good luck with your game!

Great point...thanks muse. I might just cut it down a bit....i just thought it might have been a good change in the track to go to something a little barer.....a slight change from the rest of the track which is a little more busier....

Anyone else?

Heh, yes, very Hans Zimmerish, especially in the Norghan Battle Waltz where it collapses into a percussion section before the buildup. Some really good orchestration you got there. I''m jealous

I liked both very much. Your sounds sound very releastic. I was just wondering what keyboard or synthesizer you used for those tracks? I''ve always used real orchestras but I think it''s time for me to buy a better setup.

Yes, it does cost a lot. My old college has a full orchestra that is the same level as professionals basically. The recording engineer use to record for Sony too. If you take all of your pieces and setup a couple of sessions it''s not too bad. It helps knowing people in the orchestra too. But I have a very cheap keyboard (under a $100) that I used to write my music. It has horrible sounds and I have to remember what everything sounds like in a real orchestra. It makes it much harder.
