Dance With Me [Inspired by 'Define Dancing' from WALL*E]
« on: July 02, 2008, 09:17:35 PM »
So I've been quite inspired by the music that plays at the "space dance" scene from the movie, and decided I'd attempt to write my first "film music" to try to aim for that mood. . . Hopefully it didn't turn out too messy.
Harp, strings and flute. Composed in Finale 2006, recorded with Garritan Personal Orchestra sound library.


For those who have watched the movie (if you haven't, do :p ), try to imagine that scene when listening to it and see if it fits. :)

Thank you for your time in advance!


P.S. The recording process seemed to lag the playback tempo a bit at times, but it shouldn't be too big of a distraction.

Really? o: I'm guessing you mean 0:56ish climax with the flute and etc., even though I don't remember having that in kaire, heheh. It indeed is a pretty common hook for film music, though! :)

I can usually guess if Kan or James composed the songs in quintessence...beyond that, I can't tell composers, XD

I think Tom Snow is a songwriter, not a score composer. But Alan Menken scored a bunch of the Disney Musicals of the 90's starting with Little Mermaid. He didn't score Lion King, and Hercules didn't do very well critically, and a lot of it had to do with the music, so they didn't hire him foranything else for a few years. He's done more of their movies the last couple years, though. Most notably Enchanted.

At least I'll be feeling something

Oh okay, I see. Songwriter does the songs that are sang, and score composer does the orchestra BGM stuff, right?

Yep. Sometimes they're one and the same, like Randy Newman, or the score composer will also compose the music for th songs and a lyricist will write the words.

Ah, cool. It must be fun being a lyricist too, heheh.

By the way, did you get the file I sent through PM?

Yep! I haven't responded or put anything up 'cause I'm having trouble recording the MIDI without any skips and all that. I'll try again shortly.

Thanks again for that! It's REALLY beautiful!

sounds traditional dancey, bon cha cha bon cha cha if you know what Imean. also disney-like. I haven't seen Walle myself so I dunno the scene, but yea, it probably fits.

You know Wall-E only just came out 2 weeks ago in Aus? I saw it last week, omg, best animated movie I've seen in a very, very long time. Love the space odyssey music when the captain walks for the first time.

Poor Australians. :p Well at least you got the DVD coming soon without much wait. Or is that delayed too?

Mm, I think this is actually one of my favourite compositions of mine (<-sentence sounds kinda awkward).

Probably less waiting time then you had, but I dunno.
