Description
Here's a track I did today for my project, and since I've been busy writing and touring, I wanted to share this with you as it's been a while.

Kyne (or Kynareth) is a Sky spirit and goddess of the heavens, the winds, the rain and the traveller.

I really do you hope you enjoy.

Kyne
Nahum, this is fabulous. Beautiful melody and great dynamics. The mix is excellent and I'd love to hear this in full cinematic surround sound, instead of through the little speakers I have here at home. You've outdone yourself. A lovely piece of music and an A+ for your project.

thank you
I did some shopping over the last month or so on new sound libraries, good to know they were worth the money! I'm very fond of the cellos personally. Thanks for taking the time to listen :)

Aahh! Terrific!
Lovely theme. I can easily imagine this melody interspersed among a wider soundtrack. The orchestration of the flute and background instrument — what it that, a celesta? — is also a lovely pairing and makes for a strong thematic signature.

I'm really looking forward to hearing more of the elements from this project!

A hammered dulcimer!

Thanks for taking the time to listen, I'm glad you enjoyed :) I shall certainly post a couple of more at some point - there are actually 53 tracks in the project so there'll be a couple more to come.

At least when I get the chance. Being a little-known student makes it difficult of people to send me projects.

A remarkable
piece of music. It transports to a place of awesome beauty, a paradise, if you will. This is, definitely, music that uplifts the spirit and makes a person revel in being alive because we have ears to hear and souls that can always find rest in such as this. Thank you.

So beautiful...
This is a very quiet, peaceful, meditative number that you've not only composed with sensitivity and creativity, but have also orchestrated with a very refined sense of how each instrument complements the next. The mix is wonderful.
(Hope you don't mind the reference, but this immediately struck me as the Shindler's List tune played upside down...Not a bad thing at all. Just an observation.)

thanks paul
Yes - you're the second person to mention schindlers list. The other soundtrack that springs to mind when thinking about this melody is Enemy at the Gates. I think this sits somewhere between the two!

This piece is wonderful. Did you do it all in a day? Your mix has very nice balance.

Kyne
Production: of this sounds fabulous. Really nice stuff.

Composition: I think you're making too much of that descending third/fourth motif. It happens a couple of times per phrase, and then in every phrase, and then you're developing through modulation that same phrase. It may work as film scoring, but as composition by itself it lacks variety. To me.

Sound: you're using a flute and an oboe sound, and sometimes mixed together? Considering that you're using real orchestral sounds, maybe you should obey their natural dynamics. A flute and an oboe do not soar that much over a whole orchestra. I'm a little puzzled by the sound that appear for instance around the 3 minute mark. Is that a combination of flute and oboe? Considering that they perfectly synchronize their vibrato, this sounds falls in an auditory "uncanny valley" to me: it's close to lifelike, but in a subtle way disturbingly not so.

Still, your mastery of all sorts of sounds is impressive.

Thanks
Luckily it is a film score and not a composition by itself, so we're in the clear! :P I think the reason for the descending motif and it repeating is that it's not just a composition for film, but it's in fact a character's theme.

And as is common on scoring stages, as opposed to concert settings, we use close-mics on all the key instruments, specifically so that they CAN break through over the orchestra in ways that one normally wouldn't have the ablity to in a concert. Here's on example on Harry Gregson-William's score for The Chronicles of Narnia: http://youtu.be/lLXguWl6Jc0?t=4m8s - the dulcimer and what sounds like a Viola Flautando con Sordino are close-miked and cut out across the other insutrments when they have a key phrase - normal for film music, but not for concert music.

The 3 minute mark is just a solo flute, no oboe there. (Although I'm not sure if it's the same in the states, but in Europe it's standard practice in well-versed orchestras for us to sync vibrato in which is referred to on scores as "uno vibrato di tutti" which is what gives wind and string sections such a controlled, accurate sound). Do you do this in America? I'm not sure.

Anyway, glad you liked the piece, thanks for taking the time to comment :)

Lovely piece
Excellent composition Nahum and such clarity in the mix and master. It reminds me a little of Williams' Schindler's List score (which is no bad thing!). Beautiful and restrained.

Yes - a few people are mentioning Schindler's List - I think it just about different enough to be in the clear, but I'm sure there was some subconscious influence in there!

Kyne's Theme
Nicely done. The pacing and even some of the melody reminds me very much of the main theme from Schindler's List. Very emotional.

beautifully done.
A sensitive arrangement with your usual high production standards. The melody is expressive and gentle, and all of the instrumentation furthers that perfectly. Not much else to say, well done.
