Just a few of my more recent samples from projects I am working on. Interested in feedback people have to offer. "Victorious Return" from the Last Great War VG OST "Normandy" from the Last Great War VG OST "Attack" from the Last Great War VG OST climax from "Main Theme" from the Last Great War VG OST "Opening Theme and Trailer Soundtrack" from Jedi:Timeline trailer sample quality drops as after the introduction (it was ripped from the wmv file, the encoding was poor I guess) "Opening Theme" from Insurgency: Modern Combat VG OST (concept only) "Basrah" from Insurgency: Modern Combat VG OST -Jay A.

Great Job!! It's so professional that I barely have any constructive critique!

The ones I like the most:

"Opening Theme and Trailer Soundtrack" from Jedi:Timeline trailer
"Basrah" from Insurgency: Modern Combat VG OST
"Opening Theme" from Insurgency: Modern Combat VG OST - (althought for being the main theme I think you could add some variations to the theme! or is just because the sample is to short?)
"Attack" from the Last Great War VG OST

I guess you really get into the game idea, because the music reflects the essence of the games!

Again great job!!

Hiya! I like the both of the Modern Combat ones very much. They have interesting melodies and sounds. The others are well done, but not really my kind of music. Is Modern Combat a released game? I only ask, because I was wondering if you would grant permission to add some of the complete music tracks to my website - www.xgmusic.net ?

The game has not been released yet, but it would be fine if you wanted to post them. Not sure exactly yet when the game is coming out yet, but I will update at some point. Just let me know if you do post them so I can make a note of it.

Thanks- Jay (Nav) Wollin

The music is very well arranged. My own personal critique is that I think that jazz methods are generally too underused, and it is that difference that to me separates great music from good music. Check out Toshiko Akiyoshi's arrangements for jazz orchestra. There is a great CD by her called Desert Lady. Thad Jones also comes to mind.

Good comments, Thad Jones is a trip, on tour we did Central Park North by Thad Jones, talk about some random changes. That tune covers everything from hard on funk to ballads.

Also, two more amazing references for various styles you might like, both I am sure you have heard of. Yoko Kanno and Nobuo Uematsu, two Japanese guys who really know how to get down.

Kanno did all the music for Cowboy Bebop, which... coming from someone who isn't a fan of anime, is a DAMN good show, check it out it you haven't already.

Uematsu is famous for the Final Fantasy 7 soundtack... and well, most of the other FF soundtracks too. Amazing use of almost every style under the sun. Well... there's my two cents.

BTW, cool that you know of Thad Jones, not many do nowdays... don't suppose you have a recording of Central Park North... been looking for a while and haven't had any luck. Thanks.

-Jay
