Yes. I can hear a similarity to one of the main string themes in Epic Adventure.

Well here goes…it’s tough as my tastes change from day to day and I love all the classics like John Williams, Elmer Bernstein etc but picking a few…I like these a lot:

Blood on Satan’s Claw by Marc Wilkinson – I love the chromatic tension and release.

The Wrath of Khan by James Horner – It just screams science fiction adventure. Just so bloody cleverly written and full of variety. The film would’ve been good but this makes it a classic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsHfW8ORb38
Raise the Titanic by John Barry – I could pick any of the Bond stuff but this often overlooked soundtrack is outstanding too. Again, I love chromatic tension and this is full of it.

The Nutty Professor – conducted by Walter Scharf and featuring Les Brown and His Band of Renown..It’s just cool man yeah!

Hey Marion,

Sounds pretty good to me. It’s tough having a track you like rejected. I had a couple turned down that I thought were good work. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles :)

A couple of thoughts. Your main melody sounds a bit like ‘Have a Nice Day’ by the Stereophonics. Maybe the reviewer thought the same and thought you were getting too near that track? Maybe.

Yes, as jmr-music said…you have a super voice. Very nice. Also on your Soundcloud description you spelt ‘musician’ incorrectly :)

Good luck.

Hi :) 8 bit frenzy…that’s manic! Cool.

I did one. It’s a piece inspired by playing the old N64 game Banjo Kazooie.

I sent it Grant Kirkhope who did the original music for that game and he liked it…result :)

It’s a tough call. I’m of the opinion that having too many non-sellers might be detrimental to a portfolio. I am also wary of uploading too many tracks as well. Authors like Tim McMorris (on the top of the tree) and say SoundFix (a bit lower down but still going well) don’t have huge numbers of pieces but get good results. I think having a good sales to track number ratio is attractive to buyers. Then again the really stupid thing is that some of my absolute cast-iron best work hasn’t sold a single license. It’s nuts and almost impossible to predict. I’ve deleted a few here and there and moved them over to other sites..only this week I did that with a track and got a sale for it elsewhere. I’ve no idea if I am doing things right…but that’s my take on it. It’s kind of like crossing the road…Stop, look, listen, look again etc before deleting…I have probably lost some sales through dumping old tracks but then again maybe I gained a few by having a clean portfolio with focus. Who knows? lol :)
