George's Music

Postby aldenorai » Tue May 03, 2011 10:23 am

lol I saw that quite a bit of other people shared their music on here, so I guess why shouldn't I?

I'm actually a college student (Business Major) while working full-time, but I've been a musician my whole life and a composer for over 15 years. I plan to actually establish an animation studio and produce animated films once I've completed my education. Nevertheless, music's still very thick in my blood.

I've composed for a number of independent short films and games, and a couple stage productions. I have scored only one feature-length independent film so far ("The Hero of Time" by BMB Finishes). I also make some rock music on the side as a little hobby, of which I've done about 8 rock EPs thus far since 2004.

I compose all in a digital MIDI setting within Steinberg's Nuendo 4. Even in my rock works, not a single instrument is real, though I do mix/EQ to make them sound as real as possible. I also do not use loops or arpeggiators; I insist on making everything myself from guitar parts to drum parts. Besides which, it's more fun that way! =)

Here is the URL to my website:

In the "Music Gallery" you'll find a list of some of my works over the past several years. I even recently added the "Rendition/Cover Works" section because I've found it quite fun to take songs/pieces I've heard and enjoyed and remake them the way I would like to hear them. My most recent one is my 1980's synth-rock cover of Foo Fighters' "Times Like These".

lol I know I sound like an arrogant self-promoter, but I'm really not. I'm just proud of my work. Anyway, have a listen if you feel the need to.

I listened to the alternative rock piece, "When All is Stripped Away." I wondered, are you the singer? If not, did you record it? I mean, the singing is damn fine quality, I wonder how much such a microphone would cost.

I do all of my own vocals (with the exception of a few where I credited Raegan Quinn, an old friend of mine who was an opera singer in Scotland before she moved to the US.

The microphone I used after 2008 is an $80 Studio Condenser mic that I picked up at Best Buy. It gives superb quality for something as cheap as it is. It's the Samson CO1U model, if you want to google it.

I looked up the microphone it and sounds like an excellent deal. Most recommend something at least over 200 bucks worth.

Well, one thing you'd want to keep in mind when doing vocals is to do compression on them. With good compression and the proper EQ, an $80 mic can go quite far.
