    New Demo,Orchestral Westhern theme.

    Hi,
    My Name is Dean Valentine and I've worked as a professional composer for TV & Film since 1999.In March 2006 I set up my new studio with a plan to compose professional scores for Games.
    In October I also launched www.deanvalentine.com including Biog/ projects/audio & video samples & downloads.
    Aswell as the TV & Film work,I'm slowly but surely moving towards composing music for games and at present I am currently working on a few cues for 1 or 2 game's (early days yet).

    NEW DEMO: Orchestral westhern theme

    Regards,

    Hey Dean!
    That song was GREAT.What orchestra is that? I drifted off and thought I was listening to Alan Silvestri. Nice work!
    How did you get the gig on the games?

    Hey Audun,
    Thanks,I posted this cue a good while ago and got no response at all at the forum here,so I forgot all about it so I'm delighted you found it.

    Silvestri's Predator score is the only score I have,but its one of my favorite action scores.

    Re Games: By posting on a few forums I got a some responses,I still do TV & FIlm work aswell but I would like to do more Games(after Christmas I'm going to start kicking in some doors,)

    Re library:
    East West/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Platinum Pro XP sample
    library.
    (I'm posting a new track next week have a listen if you're interested.)

    Hi Dean,

    Very nice work. It would be great to talk with you. I use the EWQL as well. You get a great sound. Maybe you can give me some tips.

    Hi keith,How are you?

    Thanks alot.
    I think EW/QL SO Platinum Pro XP is one of the best live sounding libraries around.

    Send me a pm here at the forum and I would be glad to help you in any way I can.

    Dean.

    Hi again keith,

    meant to say in my previous response that I also posted big action cue a while ago,it will give you a good idea of what can be done with the library dynamically and performance wise its titled 'Darkmatters Retribution'
    (also in game audio section.)

    hi Lukpcn,

    I listened to your tracks and thought they were great,they fit the genre very well,they could also work in a modern context aswell.( without banjo)
    Have you ever listened to 'Wyattearp' (J.N.Howard)great score,check it out.

    I think the string samples let you down a bit,everything else sounds very realistic,great low brass hits.

    Dean.

    Thanks Dean for listening to my tracks.
    I know about strings, but then I had only Halion Strings Edition in my lib while composing the most part of those pieces and only 1GB of RAM back then
    Not to mention that those where my first full orchestral pieces ever

    Once again thanks for kind words.
