Description

A detailed tutorial, which includes analysis, composition, orchestration and production methods of five musical examples based on different styles and genres, created starting from two types of approaches to music production:

  1. the "traditional" approach with the usual "note by note" writing procedure used both in the compositional stage and in the following orchestration stage (through full orchestral scores), when each choice derives from the author's creative freedom (and ability), starting from the theme's creation  up to the orchestral version;

  2. the "technological" approach, when a large part of the solutions used is supplied directly by the virtual instruments, in a progressive manner, with particular reference to new libraries provided with pre-recorded elements such as rhythmic loops, textures, effects, action parts, phrases, scales etc.

Who this course is for:
  • This course is recommended for: musicians, film, tv and media composers.
