Tutoring in Film Composition
Hello, I'm Sam and I can help you learn how to create high quality music for Film in Logic Pro X. In these lessons, I will walk you through specific projects using real life examples, or work on projects you may have for University/collage/Personal.
As a composer I've written music for broadcast (notably on BT Sport) and a number of production company. I've had my worked performed by the BBC NOW wind quintet. I also have a 1st Class degree in Music from Bangor University, and won university awards for my compositions.
Learn the basics to advanced levels, 3rd party plugins, automations, midi, where to find high quality virtual instruments, and learn the tricks I wished I'd been told when I started out in this industry!
The idea behind this piece was Resonance, that a single sound can be made up of many different sounds, but at the same time all originate from the same object. One of the main ways I do this is through freezing a single sound after it has been played and then changing the resonating frequencies.
For Piano & Performer
The focus of this piece is to blur the line between synthetic and organic sound objects. Throughout the piece ‘the performer’ is heard moving around, initiating different sound objects, some processed, some untouched. A range of textures and tones are explored, but at the same time organic interaction is very prevalent.
An Open Book
What do you hear? An open book, the characters moving on paper, or the authors thoughts as he creates a world of his own with nothing more than pen and paper? Or an out of tune and gathering dust piano, a thoughtless child thumping on broken strings. What if we could hear a book, or an old piano, would we want to… or would it be too much?
