Topic: Huge production involving GPO

    Huge production involving GPO

    Hey all,

    I've been away for a while finishing up my latest, most ambitious project ever:

    The Church Basement - Secret Passage To Dracula's Castle

    Who here has played Castlevania games? I've been inspired by Castlevania music over the years, and with this piece I did my best to imitate the style. The flute, oboe, Eng. horn, high violins, and pipe organ are GPO; the rest is Reason and my voice. All tied together with Digital Performer, as always. Have fun!

    Really enjoyable listen. You certainly captured the style in your piece and the vocal part just knocked me out! Man, that was so cool the way you did that. A great effort. Your orchestration and sampling chops are to be admired. Thanks for sharing.

    This genre isn't my usual "cup of tea" but I like this! You show a lot of imagination and creativity. I especially liked your 'monastery-like' vocal chant.

    I like the way that you blended the "acoustic" and "electronic" sounds.

    Thanks for the listen, everyone!

    Rob, I really liked your piece "I Still Do" from a while back.

    The best thing about building a portfolio is that I get to share the results here on this forum!

    Hey Chris, that's so cool... I'd give anything to be able to write in that style -- not one I have much experience in, and it reminds me of some of the really great stuff that Emerson, Lake and Palmer (and sometimes, "Yes," if you remember that group) were trying to do in the late seventies... some of that music was amazing.

    By the way, had you continued the Dies Irae chant, the very next words are "tuba mirum spargens sonum" (the trumpet flings it sound) which might give great ideas for a sudden brass cue (which is what Berlioz and Mozart did with it, of course).

    Anyway, great work! You obviously really know your way around your gear as well.

    Awesome! This song sounds so good to me - great mood. Your "very personal choir" is a really great work - outstanding work! Can you tell me how many voices you've had recorded for the choir? Great, great, great...!

    I found this very enjoyable and extremely well written/mixed even though my tastes don't normally lean this way. Good work, lontas.
