Tips Beginner Composers Orchestral Music – Announcement

In this video I would like to announce the topics of the upcoming videos about ‘How to write music for film, tv and games’. I really got inspired when I watched the premiere of my latest video live with two other people. We had a fantastic chat. And all kinds of questions about mixing, mastering, instruments specific popped up. A good start for a series of videos!

On my topic list are now:

► Topics on my list for upcoming videos

Lots of topics passed the revue in my mind last week. Many related to the basics, mixing, mastering etc. To make it a bit manageable and to give it a logical structure I made this short list:

» the basics like dynamics, balance, panning
» templates (what are they and how to build them)
» mixing (several ‘techniques’ and instrument specific)
» mastering (several ‘techniques’ and workflow)

I guess only these topics alone represent more than a dozen videos. I could probably make even much more!

► What are your topics?

Now I’ve shared my short list, I’m really curious about yours. Do you have any specific needs or questions that you would like to see me answer?

If so, let me know in the comments.
