Hey all,

Been super busy with stuff and things (and that's all I'm gonna say about that :P), and just lately been working as editor / composer on the latest episode of Vancouver B Movie factory. In this episode we went to the Red Colt Ranch of Academie Duello .. a sword fighting / martial arts school. We had the use of their archers, swordsmen and horses for the day and made our short film.

Of course as editor I get the ultimate luxury of shaping the film to my composers whims .. leaving lots of space to establish themes and really enjoy the hell out of composing. Though this is a film challenge so we never get everything we want out of shoot. But the film looks pretty good.

Here's the music score I wrote for it:

The Flower of Battle

Yeah I admit I went a bit Hans Zimmer on this .. but what can I say .. I enjoyed the shit out of writing this and it was the chance to do this kind of epic heroic stuff. I like to think it's very much a 'Hetoreyn' score .. but I'll let you be the judge. I had only 3 days to write and record this so it's definitely not quite as polished as I would like .. I usually like to spend more time massaging the reverb / EQ .. but there just isn't the time for it. In fact it's very rare we get to have orchestral scores because of the immense time pressure. (These get shown on TV .. so we really have to have them ready .. or we don't have a show!).

I used for this. VSL - Special Edition, Dimension Strings, Flute 1, Epic Horns, Flugel Horn, English Horn, Soprano Choir, Piano, Harp 1, and some built in Logic Pro percussion. As well as omnipshere for the ambient pads.

Written in Logic and mixed with Pro-tools 11

It sounds great Hetoreyn, and nothing wrong with that mix to me.   Also, having to crank out things can be a good thing because it makes you come up with more stuff than you might otherwise.
