The Work of a Bard

Argent Dawn
Hello folks of Argent Dawn!

I'm a freelance musician who, for the past few years, has been writing themes for characters on this server. Now that I have a good little folio of work, it would be good to see what the community thinks.

Any feedback or criticism is openly welcomed.

People contact me with their characters, describing their character's looks, emotions, aspirations, desires etc. From these traits and characteristics, i try to build a theme around what I feel would represent the character.

Here are some examples for you to listen to:

The above are some of my favourites. For a full list of specifically Argent Dawn commissions, here's my playlist. Maybe you know some of the toons involved :)

Looking forward to hearing back.
BUMP this music is the SHIZZ
Magnificent melodies, marvelously molded into music.

Keep up the good work!
Sounds good.
Super impressive! I wasn't expecting proper orchestral stuff, was awesome to listen to!
Very cool. Which DAW do you use to compose these? The VI sounds make me think Logic, but it could equally be almost anything else. If you're looking to expand this as a commission service I'd definitely recommend splashing out on some separate purpose-built MIDI strings plugins, as they sound 1000x more natural than built-in synthesised sounds.

Excellent stuff.
:Thumbs up:
Sounds great, would be nice to have one Merenhall theemed one one day.
yes my boy

I use Fl Studio as the DAW and a mixture of Hollywood Strings and EWQL Platinum for the rest.
