    Orchestral soundtracks and ambient soundscapes

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have fiddled around in my home studio for a few years now, mainly making orchestral soundtrack -pieces and ambient atmospheres. I have myself used the material as a background music in my pen&paper -roleplaying sessions so I thought it would be nice to offer the music for everyone to use. All of the stuff is free so you can copy, modify and use it as you like. I would also love to hear some feeback, what's good, what's bad etc!

    I'll update the projects as often I can, so feel free to check back every now and then.

    Mikseri.net is finnish page, so some of the texts are probably not understandable, but I have written everything I can in english, so I hope the pages are browseable.

    Here's one sample song from Essence -project, called Hope for rebirth

    Essence is the main project which contains mostly orchestral soundtrack-pieces

    Divinity is the ambient project, which contains mainly soundscapes and background atmospheres.

    Frozen Silence contains improvised solo piano pieces.

    Hope you'll enjoy it!

    I listened to Hope For Rebirth.

    Nice overall sounds.

    The horn doesn't seem to have the ambience of the other instruments and so tends to stick out a little bit as being out of place.

    To me the percussion could be left out of the piece. It's supposed to be a soothing song and the drums disrupt that.

    Arrangement-wise, it's a long piece for an instrumental. I know you tried to introduce new instruments to keep the listener interested. But I think the song needs more changeups in addition to modified arrangements. Just my opinion.

    Thank you for your suggestions and feedback! I think I know what you mean... I think I shall try and make another version of this one where I try to change the structure a bit and check out how it would sound without percussions and work with the overall balance.

    That's cool. But these are just my opinions. Before you go to a bunch of extra work, I'd wait and see what some other people have to say. Maybe they'll say I'm full of crap.

    Marvellous answer - seldom have I met people who are so feet on the ground and easygoing related to their views and roles. Keep it up

    Michikawa - I listened to several of your songs and they sound very professional. Even though I love rock 'n' roll, it seems when I sit down to write music, I tend to write this style. All the songs were well balanced, technically proficient and each one had its own individuality. Keep up the good work!

    Michikawa, I listened to all the piano improvistations. Beautiful playing... which I appreciate because I do a similar style of improvisation on nylon string guitar.

    Well done.

    These sound good.

    Did you use GPO by any chance?

    Beautiful!! This feels like I just downloaded a movie soundtrack. The quality is great I'll let you know my favorites. I have to hear a bunch of them first.
