Another Student Score and Melodic Rock

I've just finished another score for the Music for the Media course.

1M1 - "The Robbery"

1M2 - "Cold Nights Main Title"

1M3 - "Agent Sinclair"

This was my last assignment for this course and I have to say it's been amazing. I've learned a lot about writing music for media and I can highly recommend this course. Check it out here.

I have also recently written a short cue for Varun Sethnas Animation Mentor class 2 (+ class 1) showreel. This time Varun wanted a melodic rock track and even though that's not what I would usually write, I love a challenge and jumped into it.

When sitting down to compose this I quickly realized that all I had of electric guitar samples was from the Kontakt Library, which is great for starters, but doesn't really hold up. I went ahead and purchased Impact Soundworks Shreddage II which combined with Guitar Rig 5 is an amazing library (Revalver, an amp effect thingy is included in Shreddage II, but it crashed my Cubase big time, so I went with Guitar Rig). Anyways, here's the cue:

"Brothers in Arms" - Varun Sethna AM Class 2 ShowReel

I'll put the video in as soon as it's available on Youtube or Vimeo.

Music for Gisel Calvo's "Sunrise"

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a piece of music to go with a beautiful timelapse video created by Gisel Calvo. Here's the video with my music.
