Noble Pursuit (Epic Cinematic Orchestral Trailer)

Post by johndalenow » Wed Jan 19, 2022 10:10 pm

Before I do a final mix and add all the necessities to the strings, what else needs to be done to meet all the listing's requirements?

https://soundcloud.com/john-dale-music/ ... al_sharing

EPIC, CINEMATIC ORCHESTRAL TRAILER-Style INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Production Music Library with an impressive list of placements in Movie Trailers, TV Shows, and Video Games!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is BRAND NEW to requesting music from TAXI, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet! This is an awesome opportunity to create a new outlet for your music and begin a new relationship with a cool company!

This Library is looking for Instrumentals in the general stylistic range of the following references:

A Discovery Of Witches | Series 2 | First Look Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7DQheZiLtg

The Courier Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbR1A95Ll8Q

Jungle Cruise Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_HvoipFcA8

Please submit top-tier Trailer-style Instrumentals that create an overall epic, cinematic sound and style. Your submissions should have engaging motifs, compelling rhythms, top-notch Orchestral instrumentation, and three "acts" that build to a climactic ending. Expertly crafted arrangements and production that are generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best. If you're using any virtual instruments or samples, be sure that they are state-of-the-art and high-quality as nothing dated or obviously quantized will work, here.

TAXI Tip: Don't be afraid to layer up your instrumentation to create a big, blockbuster sound – the bigger the better for these types of Instrumentals!

All submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2:30 minutes in length (give or take). Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for overall feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share and they’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to other Libraries or Catalogs. Please send as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Saturday, February 5th, 2022. TAXI # S220205CN

Hi, John.
'Not an expert in this genre by any stretch - and, didn't listen to the ref tracks.
Old-Guy ears' opinion of the track itself: props for a very good title, and a good match to THE MOOD of the cue... the all-important ingredient.
On its own, it sounds solid and well-crafted.
I'll have to leave it to the experts to chime in on how well it fits into a playlist of the reference tracks... and meets the criteria of the listing.
Personally, I liked the composition & production; it held my attention for the full 2 minutes and something! :? 8-) ... for all that's worth.
Good luck.
HTH.

John,

I think your act 1 starts too loud, so doesn't leave enough room to grow. I would recommend starting with a p or pp level in the string bed and take the bell/celeste sound up an octave to give it a more mysterious/dreamy quality. Act 2 could then use solo strings to create more of a string quartet quality. Then in Act 3 bring in the full strings and choir, but find a different rhythmic element than the straight 8th spiccato violas, maybe sixteenths if you want something constant, or break up the 8ths by dropping 1 and/or 3 to give it a more lilting motion. Can't wait to hear what you do with the booms, risers and downers...

hope this helps

Michael
