Gypsy and Grieg

Gypsy Shoegazer

Sometimes I have no idea what I’m going. This is one of those times. This piece started its life as waltz for prepared piano, and ended up as a crazy folk song.

For those of you singers out there, I published the notes that the singers are on, in case you want to write your own words are record it on your own. [Sheet Music]

In the Hall of the Mountain King

I’ve gotten requests for this before, but I never had the time to do the recording… Lucky for you, the MusOpen kickstarter project DID do recordings and release them into the Public Domain.
I took them and mixed them in my usual cinematic style. (you can go remix them yourself if you like, too – if you really like mixing… because it is a pain to get this sound. :-)

Bass and Sentiment and Beethoven

Reunited – If your reuniting scene goes on longer than this – you’re editing it wrong. :-)

Bass Walker – Just a basic utility track. You know if you need it.

Last year I (and a lot of other people) donated some money to MusOpen so they could go record some music with a real orchestra and release the recordings into the Public Domain.
Well, they did! MusOpen released the project files for anyone to mix and play with. And I did.
This is one of my all time favorite pieces “Egmont Overture” from Mr. Beethoven.
This is not a normal “classical mix”… because others will do those. This is a cinematic mix.
How can you tell?
Well, the stereo field is super duper wide.
All of the instruments are closely mic’ed.
There is room ambiance, but not a lot.
The string section are eq’ed so you can hear the bow biting the strings.
And I replaced the tympani completely… because either the mic setting was bad, or the player had super soft mallets… and I think this piece needs really sharp sounds in the tympani.
