SUSPENSE MUSIC

LEARN HOW TO COMPOSE SUSPENSE MUSIC

COMPOSE SUSPENSE MUSIC FOR GAMES AND MOVIES

Perhaps one of the most complex musical genres, among those that permeate the world of games and cinemas, is the thriller soundtrack.

The balance, sometimes focused on evocative textures and sometimes focused on sudden melodies, combined with noise and an sometimes unconventional instrumentation, make the novice - and even the most experienced - composers suffer to achieve results, in many cases , referenced by legendary composers of the style such as Phillip Glass, Jerry Goldsmith, among others.

Added to the difficulty of finding this sound in the worlds of virtual instruments, so that you can create an efficient and fast mockup for your customers, made this genre one of the most requested courses by our students.

Here, you will learn to compose a suspenseful track, using virtual orchestral instruments, typical arrangements of the genre, MIDI programming, Reverb, in addition to having access to the Logic project and MIDI file so that you can follow the classes and check note the note of the musical project.

Welcome to Game Audio School's darkest course!
