The work of giants
Last week I showed you in the orchestral sketch that you can kick off with a simple basic piano layer. One that you can play live within seconds! And use that to develop an entire composition.
This week we gonna have a look at some works of the giants. The famous composers to who we maybe look up to. And you will see that their works contains lots of simple, yet effective basic patterns.
If you’re interested, you can download the MIDI files of these patterns. So you can import each pattern into your DAW and maybe use it in one of your own works.
So this is a challenge. You will get nine short snippets of music from me. Same ingredients as in the orchestral sketches. Four or max five bars in StaffPad.
- With each snippet, do you know to which movie it belongs?
- And do you know who the composer is?
So you can earn two points per snippet. 18 points in total.
Just throw in your answers in the comments on Youtube. Or give us the points that you have earned. And of course, at the end of the video I will give you all the answers.
So let’s go. Grab a pen and paper. Prepare yourself. I’m going to give you two rounds of listening.
