I've been working on this for about a month or so and I plan on starting to produce this in Reaper or something similar soon once the composition is down. I'm not much of a composer but I thought this would be fun to do.
If you're experienced with composition any advice would be super helpful (senpai Ven plz?), and if you're not and just someone who likes the music in the films, or whatever. Just some feedback please.
It's currently divided into 8 parts:
- The Call
- The Trials
... and follows the events leading up to and shortly after The Great Cataclysm.
Originally this was going to be about 10 - 12 minutes long but blew up into a 20 minute long piece.
Anyway that's pretty much it for now. Please bear with the limitations of musescore (screechy-ish violins near the end and no ritardando/accelarando) until I learn how to use Reaper properly.
EDIT: Apparently a lot of people don't recognize the themes, so here's all the source material I drew from.
UPDATE: Just a quick update on some progress. So far I haven't really gotten much feedback from anywhere I've posted, but I'm still working on improvements. So far I've tightened up the harmony in some sections to make it sound a bit more dense. Changing the arpegiatted cellos after the piano bit (Time) quite a bit and will add some more bulk to that section aswell so it's not just cellos.
UPDATE 2: So I got some feedback from a reddit thread on some general improvements I can make. The major changes I'll be making is the toning down the piano from about the 2 - 3 minute mark (part 2) and reworking some parts to make it more in the style of a piano concerto. I have the latest version uploaded but I'll be making more changes over the coming week.
