Here's the third of three tracks that has been signed with a music library for use in TV and film. I had an assignment to write “Magical Orchestral”. The title: “The Forest Path”.
I used a small bit of video through a… forest path (see below)… to get the idea started. You can get an idea of what the tempo of a piece of music should be from the movement of the visual and and then write according to that. (Notice the very slight up and down movement of the camera. Seemed like a good tempo to me!)
And once again, many thanks to a couple of new friends and veteran composers with the music library who helped me dial in the mix to get things where it needed to be.
