FSCG Airfield Video Soundtrack

 

I’m currently in the process of writing a new video soundtrack for my 2014 Airfield Video:

The progress

3.3.2016

  • String chords are spread over the orchestral voices (violins 1+2, violas, chellos and bass)
  • Added an Oboe/Flute melody to silent part.

4.3.2016

  • Oboe/Flute now plays with 4 voices
  • Bassoon added for slow part, as low octave addition for woodwinds
  • Bells and small bells have been added
  • Trumpets have been added at the end
  • Xylophone has been added for Pizzicato part (glider climbing at the winch cable)
  • Credit melody has been enhanced by flutes and oboes (4 voice, 2X2 Harmony, octaved)

TODOs:

  • Enhancement of Last part (Approach and Landing)
  • Percussion Redo
  • De-Clustering of woodwinds in silent part
  • Making instruments organic to add realism (still sounds like synthesized)
  • String Legato Workover (attack still hearable)

5.3.2016

So, the composition is ‘complete’, which means, that adding more would overload the whole thing.

Done since yesterday:

 

  • Enhancement of Last part (Approach and Landing)
  • Percussion Redo
  • De-Clustering of woodwinds in silent part

Next step will be:

  • Adapting Midi volumes of instruments
  • Add a random component to temporal sequence of notes
  • Adding expression and Pitchbend for realism
  • String Legato overhaul
  • Overwork velocities of percussion and Piano

After that:

  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Adding to video

06.03.3016:

Adapted Midi Volumes (better Instrument expressions). It’s a bit exagerated at some points, but I will fix this in finetuning.

Next:

  • Make organic (Pitchbends, Quantization)
  • Improve Legatos

After that:

  • Mixing and Mastering
  • Adding to Video

11.3.2016:

The most difficult part is done: making it organic and Legatos.

After that:

  • Minor tweaks
  • Mixing and Mastering
  • Adding to Video
