Description : RAW (Studio mixing to come later)

Composed in 2015-16

All parts of the story written and inspired by a dream. A very personal story. I can't sing,so the emotions are in the notes. This is the instrumental version. The sheet music was written for a group.
The Expanse is the beginning, a journey into the unknown, a risk.

    I find cellos and cor anglais are the hardest instruments to manuscript for as they have specific raw sound that can be too much or not enough depending on the moment.

    Love this and agree with Stereonomicon as i too sense flight vision thru the Andes or somewhere with this musical works.

    An epic piece with a highly cinematic flavor, it suggests images of panoramas observed during a flight. Good job

    Apt description. The Expanse is the flight into the unknown, hence the upbeat tempo, and more uplifting mood. The other ones of the story have a minimalist somber story to tell. The last song is coming home to a new understanding.

    Very good composition and arrangement!

    Thank you! It's hard to pinpoint my favorite instrument, typically strings are my favorite, but I've been enjoying flute as well. Cellos though, oh boy that's my jam.

    Love your track. It's like a fantasy story. Very cinematic sounding, like a movie soundtrack. Great work!

    It certainly is a fantasy story. All four parts connect, and each song has a mood that represents the title of it's work. Huge fan of your House work by the way. :-) Like huge huge fan. Great work!

    Very nice indeed.

    Was the group like a chamber orchestra or something as im interested to know because i can sense that easily being massed out to FULL Orchestra?

    Splendid musical piece & thankyou for sharing...now 3 parts remaining to be played

    Kindest Regards,

    The composition was written for a full orchestra you are correct. I just don't want to jinx the talks/contracts I am in with if that makes sense.

    I haven't fully decided on the sheet music for the cellos. It ranges for bad to terrible lol.

    But then again, this was written originally for personal use, and simply dreaming of a chamber playing this later.

    But I do thank you! I haven't really decided on releasing the other 3 instrumentals yet, but it would be foolish of me to not complete a story I've uploaded already.

    As i said in the response of the comment of one of my title, the instrumental is beautiful. We can imagine it at the end of a great movie.
    Will you post the 3 other parts ?

    Thanks! After listening to a few of your things, I think I am inspired by my favorite song of yours to also write something new as well.

    As for the other 3 parts, the truthful answer is I don't know.

    I don't really consider them complete or good, and the fourth song "Home" it seems the live recording of a certain section of the song was lost.

    Either I have to dive down through my storage files and find it and/or re-record it, or I can upload the very raw, horrible sounding rough rough rough draft, and I typically don't like uploading stuff that sounds really really bad versus only moderately terrible. :-P

    I'll think about it though.

Description : This track is the first two sections of what will (hopefully) be a three-part piece — essentially a suite. I am posting parts 1 and 2 because I think they are ready for feedback from Looperman members. Part 3 isn’t done yet because it requires Human League style vocals from a singer with a distinct British accent. I have the melody and lyrics worked out. I sent a private message a while ago to a Looperman member who I think has the right voice for the job. But, haven’t had a response. Until I find a vocalist for it, I can’t finish the piece. In any case, the total file size of the complete piece would be greater than the Looperman limit, so it will have to be split into parts anyway.

Parts 1 and 2, in fact the whole thing, were inspired by acapellas posted here on Looperman by Jacques Demers:

https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/6105/love-love-love-ououou-by-jacquesdemers-130bpm-dance-acapella

https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/6093/dont-keep-back-2-by-jacquesdemers-107bpm-hip-hop-acapella

https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/6091/dont-keep-your-love-away-from-me-by-jacquesdemers-107bpm-hip-hop-acapella

If you haven’t checked out Jacques’ tracks yet, you really should. He doesn’t set them up as “featured” so it might be easy to miss them.

The harmony in Jacques’ acapellas sounded very “Beatle-ish” to me, and that made me want to try my hand at doing a George Martin style treatment. I remembered that ScottsCovers here on Looperman had mentioned an instrument called a Mellotron, which was used by the Beatles, the Moody Blues, Genesis, along with other groups of that era, so I decided to use a VST mellotron as the primary instrument for Parts 1 and 2.

The acapella in Part 2 was in a different key than the one used for Part 1, so I needed to find a chord progression in Part 1 that would modulate the key. Jacques gave me some advice on that, which you can see in the comments on his first acapella.

Part 1 has harp, mellotron flutes, clarinet, french horns, and my attempt at a Penny Lane type trumpet solo (but much simpler). Part 2 has a string ensemble, solo oboe and trumpet in unison, and some Daniel Langois type processed guitars. Both parts were recorded at 60 bpm, largely because that’s where the acapellas seemed to sync best. However, I played the instrument tracks freestyle (rubato), so the tempo actually varies somewhat. Definitely not quantized!

There is a storyline behind this track. Part 1 is the blooming stage of a relationship. Part 2 is about the relationship in decline. Part 3, with vocals, will be about ending it.

I’ve included the transition to Part 3 (which will be a more traditional synth pop section) and just a bit of the first verse backing instrumental so you can get an idea of how things are headed in the final part.

____________________

This songs is like a normal day in my life... as my brain point of view. The first part is the morning with strings, horns, clarinette and flute. It's a joyful and beautiful day ! Then, there's a sort of "bridge" between the morning part and the afternoon. Afternoon is awesome and chaotic at the same time, that's why I added dubstep in the middle of the song. Finally,the evening and the night are the second bridge and the end of this piece.

It's the first song I mix Orchestral and Dubstep.
Whole s music maker Jam with Movie Score 1/2/3 and Dubstep (i think it's Vol.2) loops.
Mix = Music Maker (Soundtrack Edition)
Final details = Music Studio

It's a Raw Mix because I really like this song and I want to make a better version ONLY with Music Maker Jam (without mix or whatever, execept for the sound quality).

Feel free to comment :)

Description : I created this track for the love I have for puppies. I love them. Everybody does. This day I went to this park nearby my colony and saw couple of them and thought of making something musically. So this is what i came up with. This time I haven't played much with FX or Technical aspects. Just pure simple & soft melodies. As it is unmixed & unfinished track, request you to boost the volume a little. Hope you all like it! Cheers! :)

Description : free beats!

Description : So, I’ve been working on a new track. After my last song “The Moments That Take Your Breath Away”, I was filled with a sense of overwhelming pressure to live up to, and even exceed the expectations I held myself to. This led to a pretty bad creative block I’m slowly but surely working myself out of. That is what this song is going to be about: me coming to terms with my own expectations and breaking free from my creative block.

The song itself is still very rough. I used an orchestral soundfont (big thanks to @GregVincey for pointing me in that direction) for the intro to give it an epic feel. For the most part, it’s going to be cinematic, telling a story. I imagine it dropping into experimental future bass; something different. I’ll also be looking forward to having a singer with a strong voice to really nail the intensity and emotion, but I’d rather finish the track first before going down that route.

I’m looking forward to some constructive criticism.

*Please note: This is only a preview of the song, because it’s really not done yet. I’ve had many variations of how this song should be like, but none I was particularly proud of. There’s more info in the description about the meaning behind the track and info on the track itself*

Description : This is an orchestral pop piece. I composed the notes in Noteflight and then imported the resulting MIDI into Mixcraft 6, where I assigned instruments and inserted percussion loops. Thank you to Glitchwall for Peppy Drums at 100 Bpm, Sinthetic Records for Acoustic Drumfill 1, MrTOfficial for Pop Them Drums, EpicRecord for Drum Kit - Relaxed Variation 6 Snare, rasputin1963 for Whirlwind Rise for Dance Breaks, and yappy for Stick Together 100Bpm Drum. I am just starting and I'm really interested in learning more, hopefully from you! About that collab request: if you would like to yank the MIDI files and play around with this, I'd be happy to upload them to Mediafire and send them to you. I can even give you sheet music, if that helps you out.

Description : First one I posted on here not too long ago when I tried this out. Would love to dabble more with this type for sure as I love the orchestral/cinematic tracks I find on here! Great loops I found by MINOR2GO that I threw together. I just added the bass drum and slight fx here and there. I would consider this cinematic as well. Thanks!
