Now that I've a new place to store my demos, I would like you to listen to it and tell me what you're thinking.

Fin de la bataille.mp3 (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/david.chochoi/Fin de la bataille.mp3)
Le village.mp3 (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/david.chochoi/Le village.mp3)
Marche du chaos.mp3 (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/david.chochoi/Marche du chaos.mp3)
A l aventure.mp3 (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/david.chochoi/A l aventure.mp3)

My style is a lot medieval.

I've composed with EWQLSO Silver edition and so Orchestral pieces for 5 months, Actually, I'm a extreme metal guitar player and composer :D (Black, Death metal) but I'm fond of Orchestral music too, so I'm studying a lot of scores.

I felt that I had to listen to your demos since we have the same background. (I'm playing guitar in an extreme metal band myself :D )

Really good stuff. Some parts are maybe a little to dry, but that's just my personal opinion.

Keep up the good work.


Edit: I really liked the last one. really good. :)

Good stuff. I could imagine this as the background music for a fantasy game from a company like Blizzard. A few comments:

Fin de la Bataille. Very good overall, though I thought it could have done with a little more weight in places. Just some bass under a few more passages could do it.

Le Village. Again good, though the strings used for the latter half sounded a little unnatural. I've noticed this with some of the SO silver instruments, sometimes there'll be an octave at one extreme or the other that sounds unnatural, and it's better to switch to the next instrument up or down. Cello or viola in this case.

Marche du Chaos. The middle section sounded very convincing except for the choral voices, which were very MIDI-ish. Cranking up the reverb or replacing it with a solo instrument like a horn could fix that.

A general comment would be that you could do with varying articulations more when you've got one instrument playing a melody through a large part of a track. But aside from those niggles, I like.

What a coincidence ! Hi Tchoyy, I have just seen your post in compositeur.org :D I'm not regitered there, so I give my comment here : your style sounds very nice to me. Fin de la bataille is pretty powerfull, I like it ;)
See ya !

Salut Tchoyy!

Go the French connection ;)

Your work is quite impressive, after only 5 month playing around with Silver.

I like your pieces. Medieval music is not easy to compose.

But I have an overall criticism to mention: you should use more reverb, say a Grand Hall reverb on the Master track. Indeed, the sound feels a bit too dry...

But you did a great job!

Bravo et continue comme ca!

Thank you.

You're right with reverb, I should use it ;)
By listening a lot to my demos, I think that it's dry too.
