Heya everybody! I figured I might as well share some of the works I've done in relation to the movies.
First up, my take of "Into the West": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeCPmUhtWzk
For this song, I wanted to challenge myself by not only using all the wind instruments that I possess, but also my voice. I think I had to do 25 takes before I got it right, so yeah, it wasn't easy... But it was so much fun.
Next, Misty Mountains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfhTs43O8yY
This song here is a little bit unusual, because everything you hear - except the strings - is done by household objects. The drums are plastic ikea boxes. I used also my ocarina (in the beginning) and piccolo (in the bridge) for this song. That bell you hear is just a wine glass.
And finally, my latest work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=963NZyiX-tQ
I think it's one of my best works. As you may have noticed, there's been a 1 year gap between now and the day "Into the West" was uploaded. The music is entirely composed by yours truly, but the lyrics, as you may have noticed, is from the Hobbit book. Let's just say I enjoyed the movie a lot and the Prophecy as well, despite that unbearable ending.
Well, enjoy, folks!
