Default Hello from CO

I suppose I should post here since it's clear to me that I'm going to be hanging around for a while. I'm from Colorado. Graduated from Colorado State University with a B. A. in Music and a B. S. in Mechanical Engineering. Still looking for a regular full time job with engineering since graduation and also doing the best I can to pursue film composing from where I'm at. Did some scoring for a couple of high school film projects to get some experience and am currently working on another more serious, but still unpaid, project with a local filmmaker.

I enjoy listening to movie soundtracks and heavy metal sub-genres that include the words progressive, technical, or melodic (progressive death metal, melodic hardcore, technical deathcore, et al). I'll listen to anything that has good orchestration, though.

Hey there,

you've come to the right forum to suit your needs considering feedback for music production, but also feedback on your writing. I am curious though, do you list to symphonic metal? I think it fits in your musical taste :P. What's your favorite movie soundtrack?

Best,

Best,
I do listen to symphonic metal! I still haven't found any albums I want to buy yet, though. I'm pretty picky when it comes to buying music. Epica is probably closest to something I would buy.

As for movie soundtracks, I think my current favorite is How to Train Your Dragon (John Powell). My other favorites would be Pay it Forward (Thomas Newman), and Earthquake--an obscure John Williams score from the 70s that sounds very different from a lot of the other stuff he's done.

Haha, I have to agree with you on your favorite score of this moment. It's really a great thing John Powell did with the film. Symphonic metal isn't really my thing, but there are some songs of apocalyptica I like :P. I haven't even heard from earthquake, I'll give it a listen some time soon .
