  • Forgot to share this when it released but I made my first original score for one of my friends’ film school projects

    Was a fun experience & definitely something I’d like to try again.. lmk what y’all think might release the score on SoundCloud

    Also if anyone else has ever composed an original score before, please post it ITT trying to become more educated in the field

  • Very cool! I’ve been wanting to do this myself, good looks!

  • shiiii i’m about to use op as inspiration

    good s*** dude

    It sounds beautiful man! Reminds me of something from Johann Johannsson or Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein.

    Curious as to how your approach changes from producing a score and a regular beat? Also, are there certain elements/techniques you’ve picked up on making this that you’d like to bring over to a regular hip-hop beat?

    bruh why did they even choose that class

    cause I spend the majority of my time listening and making music so I figured why not needed an elective

    Oh f*** s*** my b im sleepy

    I think it’s cause most of them were film major people, or they majored in something sound related and not exactly composition. It’s an elective so they prob wanted to learn.

    some did know instruments but couldn’t translate it to good ideas lol

    Man idk scoring with vsts just seems way less cooler than a real orchestra. I know vsts can produce some insane ambient sounds though

    True but a lot of people score with just kontakt libraries.

    But congrats on the score OP. Not easy, and an under-appreciated task.

    Was definitely a little inspired by the Stranger Things soundtracks w/ the soft synth sound selection

    I pretty much just watched the rough cut of my friend’s film a few times to get familiar with it, then ripped the audio (acapella) & imported it into my DAW

    After that I just started going at it & found a nice BPM that synced up well with the length of the film. I decided to approach it as one big cohesive instrumental rather than composing different pieces for diff parts of the film since it was so short. That’s why everything stays at a constant BPM & key throughout the whole vid

    I definitely kept the sound in-line with how I already produce bc my friend gave me free-reign & asked me to keep it authentic to myself

    As for the elements/techniques question, I’m already a super melody-driven producer so I didn’t really have to switch much up from my normal workflow, besides setting the moods & progressions w/ the corresponding scenes in the film
