..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."
Need less to say in 2020 I've had a lot of time to hone some skills in sound library production and "orchestration " (<< I humbly mentioned that word as I've had no training at this. I'm only relying on my ear to figure out what sounds good and interesting to generate the mood needed for this music request)
Yesterday, I received an email from the music library stating their desire to sign these two tracks. So, um, YES!
Lots of ORCHESTRAL-Based TENSION INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a BRAND NEW Music Library that's being started by a successful Editor for Major TV shows!
They 're looking for a bunch of Tension Instrumentals and/or Cues in a variety of tempos. Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of what they need:
The Shahs of Sunset (Starting From 0:08 – 0:22)
“RHONJ” (Starting From 1:30 – 2:17)
Please send well-composed Instrumentals (and/or Cues) that use Orchestral instrumentation to evoke tense, anxious, and anticipatory feelings. While your Instrumentals (or Cues) should be Orchestral-based, they’re open to arrangements that include some additional organic or electronic elements if used tastefully and sparingly.
Please be sure that your Orchestral instrumentation is well-played, sounds authentic, and feels believable. Any material that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviouslyMIDI-driven will not work for this request. Sticking with one musical idea/theme/motif from start to finish is strongly recommended, as it could make your pieces easier to use.
All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and roughly 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues, give or take. Non-Faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
I wrote three tracks for the pitch. This one below was the first I wrote before the forwarded tracks above, but was passed on. I got a little crazy with the new BBC Symphony Orchestra sound library
