Hi there,

I spent the last days working on this little tune...

https://soundcloud.com/dustin-naegel/journey-onward

...a somewhat rhythmically driven (almost march-like) medieval/fantasy theme soundtrack theme. It's build upon a (hopefully) heroic melody and is intended to accompany the travel montage of a fantasy epic (game/film). If you have some handy tips, especially concerning the mix, please do not hesitate to share your insights.

Best regards

Dustin

I know very little about music, but I wouldn't bring in the christmas windchimes at 17-18 seconds, I'd save them for later in the score. But then again , maybe you're matching to a scene of snowfall from a roof or tree at that instant?

Since I wasn't entirely satisfied with the MIDI-based recording of my orchestral version I transcribed it for solo piano. I tried to stay as true as possible to the original orchestral version, especially in keeping the bass ostinato as well as the off-beat fills for pizzicato strings beneath the melody vocings. Maybe one or two of you here find it interesting to watch all the different voices in action. Hope you'll enjoy.
