Scoring Central is a new forum for composers working with samples and other virtual orchestra technology. I welcome interested composers of all skill levels to join in and learn about virtual orchestration, share tips, or just chat with us!

I'm an indie composer, if you will. I'm currently working on my debut album.

A Song for Victory is great!  Is there a story behind it?  It's one of those pieces that are simple but very effective - it really creates a triumphant mood.  Is that a bagpipe I hear in the middle section?

Love your little critters!  In 5, no less!

Hello Otto-

I just listened to your "Born to Be King" and then let your entire playlist continue.  Wow.  All your music is really good.  You have a great talent for melody, your harmony is always interesting and provides the perfect setting for the piece, but above all your sense of structure and orchestration is impeccable.  Congratulations, and thanks for posting!!

hi Otto - Just listened to your newly posted track - "thunderchild" - nice work :)  Did you create that track using -  DAW or Sibelius, or other tools?

Just to set the record straight, "creepy", "mysterious" and many more moods are all perfect for our yearly Halloween contest.  "Scary" is just a shorthand way of saying music for Halloween.  Your piece was perfect for Halloween, Otto, and several people have studied it since you posted it.  Thanks for sharing.

Hello Otto - Your "Night at the Toy Store" was one of my favorites in the Scary 2014 contest.  Something about the name itself just gives me shivers, and the music totally lives up to the name.  Great job!!!

Exactly.  A feeling that we have returned from an adventure  is perfect analogy.

Composers do take us to strange places… and leave us there happy or sad,

but if the idea at the start is strong (yours is)  it's nice to get back home.

keep writing

Very nice.    Like the logical construction…. March contrast...and thanks for returning to theflute at the end.
