  1. Since I was asked for sheet music via PM: Hal Leonard has licensed my arrangement and is now offering it on Sheetmusic Direct. https://www.sheetmusicdirect.com/en-US/se/ID_No/686157/Product.aspx Sorry, I had no control over the price. Would have preferred to post it similar to Bandcamp with "name your price". Anyway, maybe one or the other wants to try it πŸ˜‰
  2. True enough, but he kind of upcycled it for the TNG spin-off series with a lot more energy and panache. Especially the theme's B-part got a lot broader, more energetic treatment in the brass and string section. Apart from that I rather watch a whole season of TNG than one single screening of TMP... :P
  3. Hi, last year I arranged Jerry Goldsmith's iconic main theme for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" as a little jazz piano fantasy. Alexander Courage's opening fanfare for the original series from 1966 as well as some other well-known motifs (like the one for the Klingons) appear along the way. Hope you'll enjoy! :) https://youtu.be/B5aplpJMYW8 Best regards, Dustin
  4. Hello all, a couple of friends from Vienna have produced a small Star Wars-inspired fan film. What the flick lacks in dialogues and dramaturgy is hopefully compensated a bit by the excessive overuse of homicidal martial arts elements :P (All are passionate fencers.) Well, since John Williams is unfortunately no longer available for Star Wars, I had to step in for the music. :P Have fun! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OElWnjrzvl0 LG Dustin
  5. Hi there, I postet this piece almost exactly five years ago in a very early version (it was actually more of a MIDI mockup) and now in the last few weeks I've been working on it again very intensively. The whole thing was recorded with new and – hopefully – more realistic orchestral samples and re-arranged here and there. I would be happy to get some feedback, especially on the mix or the sound in general and what could be improved. Synthetically realizing an entire orchestra on a PC is really a science in itself (at least for me) and I must honestly admit that it took me at least two to three times as long for recording and mixing in the sequencer that for the actual composition in the notation program. https://soundcloud.com/dustin-naegel/a-swashbucklers-fanfare-1 As a video with excerpts from both score and sequencer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1qQsuz7TPg Thanks for your feedback :) Dustin PS: Oh and if you happen to need music for your current game project (preferably action, sci-fi, fantasy, horror/mystery etc.), just let us know. πŸ˜‰
  6. At last, here is the complete film excerpt, to which this piece as well as two more cues were originally written: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1Op4EXgQk0 The film itself is obviously very trashy and extremely LOW-BUDGET (shot in 2005 with a discounter camcorder), but I was primarily interested in the opportunity to finally write film music in the musically incredibly rewarding fantasy genre. Hope you'll enjoy it! :)
  7. Hi there, 15 years ago me an some friends of mine worked on a corny little fantasy project (http://www.candlekeep.com/library/articles/tdod.htm) that was never really finished. I am now working to restore one scene of that project to use it a a template for my film music compositions. Although I am making good progress in re-cutting and dubbing that scene, I am still lacking a visual fire effect for one very short sequence and don't how to implement that kind of vfx. Here is that short sequence: Do you know any small tool/program (best free- or trialware) to quickly create some kind of a ray of fire (until 0:04) and some gout of flame (from 0:04 on) around these little monsters? It doesn't has to look particularly good, it just has to be recognizable. If you want to try it yourselves, I've uploaded the sequence to dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/op1crkcjxkv1ezi/Feuerzauber-Effekt.avi?dl=0 Best regards and many thanks in advance Dustin
  8. Howdy, I tried my best to compose the score to a little horror production called β€žSarah”, a short film (18-19 min) produced by film students from all departments about a series of murderous events around a remote cabin the woods. It was executed for educational purpose only; nobody involved got any money. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVx9Q85qQ40 However, I am eager to get some early feedback on the music, especially some hints concerning the mix and the overall sound. Is it realistic enough? If not, what sucks the most? Of course, there were no real accoustic instruments involved. Fell free to tel me what you think about it. :) Maybe you'll recognize the major motif (a falling fourth/tritone shift) here or there. ;) Best regards Dustin
  9. Hey, thanks for your replies, really appreciate it. :) Since I wasn't entirely satisfied with the MIDI-based recording of my orchestral version I transcribed it for solo piano. I tried to stay as true as possible to the original orchestral version, especially in keeping the bass ostinato as well as the off-beat fills for pizzicato strings beneath the melody vocings. Maybe one or two of you here find it interesting to watch all the different voices in action. Hope you'll enjoy. https://youtu.be/RgFdfjqNtag
  10. Hi there, I spent the last days working on this little tune... https://soundcloud.com/dustin-naegel/journey-onward ...a somewhat rhythmically driven (almost march-like) medieval/fantasy theme soundtrack theme. It's build upon a (hopefully) heroic melody and is intended to accompany the travel montage of a fantasy epic (game/film). If you have some handy tips, especially concerning the mix, please do not hesitate to share your insights. :) Best regards Dustin
  11. Hi there, I am with a young film maker team from Germany and I would really like to know what you think of our work: Escaped! (original title: Getuermt) is an independent short film by O. Weisskopf and M. Kleinfeld about two prison escapees on the run. It's German with English subs. Best regards Dustin
