From two melody lines to a full cinematic track
In Logic Pro X I’ll show you how I re-established two melody lines over and over again. With an end result of a full cinematic orchestral music track of more than 3 minutes long.
When you break down this composition in melody, harmony, rhythm and textures, you’ll see that only a couple of orchestral instruments play the melody lines. By introducing a new instrument each time, a new colour, you keep the listener attention.
All the other instruments of the orchestra are used for the harmony, rhythmic parts and textures. Leaving enough colours and tones for diversity and creativity in your composition.
So if you have the ambition to write this kind of music tracks, this video can give you some ideas, tips and tricks to grow your skills.
