MUSIC: The Fall of Jerusalem (work-in-progress)

Well, I don't think the picture is temporally accurate, but you get the idea.

:-)

This piece is inspired by the book of Lamentations. As the title of this post says, it's not finished, but I wanted to get a Piece-of-the-Week up, and this will give you a chance to give input on how I should proceed with the piece!

I've also been enjoying working with the new EWQL libraries- you can hear in this piece a duduk from Ra (I think it was...), a solo violin from Gypsy, percussion from Stormdrum 2, good old Symphonic Orchestra orchestra, a female voice from Voices of Passion, and more.

Enjoy.

Lots going on!/MUSIC: Farewell to the Piano


There's a lot going on here at the Resounding Music studio. Praise The LORD, I have multiple scoring opportunities presenting themselves. We're also working on the Big Mac, the computer that I use for my music- it's needing some doctoring. LORD willing, it shall be up-to-spec shortly.

So, because of all that's going on, I wanted to do a quick POTW that wouldn't consume lots of my time but would still be... well... a POTW.

This is a piano piece by Beethoven. The performance is unedited- and imperfect. My apologies, but I need to turn the perfectionist in me off and get on to other work!

The title? Farewell to the Piano. What a heartbreaking title for such a simplistically beautiful piece. I wonder what inspired Mr. Beethoven to write it...

And no, I'm not saying farewell to the piano. :-) I used the EWQL Pianos library for this.

Red Rain Trailer - Final

No piece of the week this week- praise God, I've been very busy.

However, the Red Rain trailer is now live, with all the ingredients assembled- check it out here.

Text by Aubrey Hansen- of course, she wrote the book, too. :-)

Narration by Grace Pennington- very nice emotional rendering of the text, Miss Pennington! Oh, and she also provided the sound effect.

Text by Nechet Hudelson- awesome 3D pull-away at the end there, sister.

Music, sound editing, and final mix by yours truly- Gabriel Hudelson

MUSIC: Red Rain Trailer

My piece for this week is the score to a book trailer that we're now putting the finishing touches on. The plan is to add narration and SFX, but for my YouTube channel I uploaded one which is just the music and the trailer itself.

Here's the trailer

Didn't my sister do a great job on the kinetic typography?

Oh, and brownie points to whoever can name the kind of scale that I used at the beginning.

Now, before we agreed to do this trailer, I read a rough draft of this e-book-to-be, and it was a pleasure and a breath of fresh air to read. Very worldview conscious, and full of glorious modeling of Biblical family life. It was also a good story. I love it when good art and good worldview are combined.

There were some rough spots, but it was a rough draft. I look forward to reading the finished version if ever I get my grubby mitts on it. Nevertheless, the meat of the story was a delight to behold- and it was quite the enjoyable journey, even in rough-draft form. I would definitely recommend that you get yourself a copy when it comes out, and if the trailer leaves you wanting to learn more, check out the author's website:
