  1. Thanks Fusion In regards to feedback, I know this is not the kind of forum where classical arrangements seem to be frequently submitted; it's mostly electronic remixes, but from your perspective as a musician/music maker, I'd welcome your opinion on the way the piece is structured and orchestrated, or if there's anything that sounds "out of place" in any way, etc.
  2. Hello Everyone! As I'm new to this forum, I'd like to start off by posting here something I've recently completed. It's an Orchestral Arrangement of Lake Floria from Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword. Being a classically trained composer, not a mixer, I don't really know if this is the best place to share this kind of music, but as a musician who has orchestrated and provided music for the SotG Concert, I'd like to share some of what I have done/am doing. The link to the Soundcloud page is below. If it's popular, I will post more in the future.
  3. Hello everyone! I'm relatively new to these forums, so I guess that would class me as a newbie, but in terms of music composition, I've been involved in music-making since the early 90's. I've also been involved in Videogaming, primarily Nintendo, since that time too, and for me, the music of a videogame makes or breaks it. A videogame with good music has always got my attention, and I tried transcribing videogame soundtracks in my earlier years, and learned how to compose myself. When I started University to study music, I managed to start my course already familiar with most of the material and academic lessons, but it was in 2011 when I saw the E3 Summit in LA and the 25th Anniversary of the Legend of Zelda that my interest really peaked. I attended the Symphony of the Goddesses Concert every time it came to the UK, and decided I'd want to be a part of it, so after writing some music and sending it to the Producers, I was successful in being contracted to write some music for them. Since then, I have been working on videogame arrangements in addition to Composing music. I also Conduct as well. I joined this group/forum in the hopes of meeting and building connections with new people who share the same interests as I do, and hopefully making music with some of you if I can! Nice to meet you all, and looking forward to meeting you!!
