    Return to Middle Earth

    This is my little homage to The Lord of the Rings Soundtrack. It's one of my all time favourite soundtracks so I wanted to try my hand at composing something in the style used by Howard Shore. A mix of low chords, nice flute melodies, and a driving beat with the whole orchestra, that keeps building into a big crescendo.

    I even snuck in one of the main themes from Lord of the Rings in at the very end. For a nod... :-)

    Thanks folks. Personally I think I could have done a lot more of it. The more I listen, the longer I wished I'd made it.

    A lot of my pieces are sounding like overtures to me, I keep changing musical ideas mid-piece.

    I'll probably revisit this at some point and flesh it out more.

    Both my wife and I are HUGE Lord of the Rings fans. LOL! Have probably watched all three movies about a half-dozen times!

    Nicely done!! The overall balance and width of dynamics is all very well rendered. I don't remember if you're using a notation program or a sequencing program, but the end-result is a nice sounding piece of music. Enjoyed your "nod" at the end of the piece.

    Cheers. . .

    Without reading your next post I had the same feeling that it needed a bit more length to it. That is a big compliment in case you missed it! Nice progressions and chords!
