"Genesis" for the Berlin Film Scoring Competition
Hello everybody :)
Here is my composition for the Berlin International Film Scoring Competition 2022.
All the candidates received the same video, and had to create music on it.
I used Spitfire Symphony Orchestra (pro) + Solstice (a little)
This music is not the Winner of the competition. :'(
If you want to listen without video/sound design :
Great work. The composition really works to the pictures. It would have been really easy to over-compose this but this shows some conscious restraint. Very reminiscent of early Star Wars scores, so hope you were going for some John Williams' vibes.

This sounds amazing! The music certainly added to the overall storyline. I agree with the comment above, with the subtlety and the restraint. However I have a feeling some parts felt a little dry? It could just be my headphones but some parts would sound even better if there was a bit more reverb, panning, and width.
Or it's just my headphones. Probably is. 😂1
I am so sorry for the late reply !
Gigabang : Thank you ! Yes, John Williams is my favorite composer, although I try not to copy, sometimes it's hard to get away from his style when I'm writing. At the beginning, I had done something much more "epic", but I finally removed a lot of things because the epic style does not look like me.
Again, thank you for the comment.
Londoneye330 : Amazing ? lol, I am honored. Yes, I am using close mic only, and I certainly did not put enough reverb... that's why sometime it is too dry. It's not your headphones that's messing up... I always I always fail at the mix, I don't know why.
Again, sorry for the late reply and thanks to both of you :)
