I've always loved the soundtracks of movies and TV shows and decided to make my own music for one. It's not going well. I have the ideas but lack the musical background. I've written some short pieces on a piece of computer software that doesn't give very realistic sounds to anything other than piano.
If anyone has some recommendations for how I can find out if these compositions will actually sound good, I'd like to hear it. I've also written several songs but still don't quite know how to write music.
But as I said earlier I'm trying to learn.
My favorite artists range from in the classical genre Sergei Prokofiev I think my favorite to Johann Strauss I, II Eduard Strauss, Josef Strauss and another favorite composer. Camille Saint-Säens. Héctor Berlioz is alright too. As for modern classical... Mike Post all the way.
Lyrical music is divided between old and new. Some Nights (the clean version) being my all time favorite of new music. The Climb and Firework are another couple of modern favorites while Don't Mess Around With Jim, and Carmen San Diego are also favorites. It's Still Rock'n'roll to me is another favorite as is Keep your Head Up. So I'm all over the place. Hope this gives you something to judge me by.
