Dramatic & Emotional Orchestral Underscoring: Part II

In this new tutorial, I’ll continue on from the first part of my walkthrough and process behind providing adequate music to support the visual narrative of your project; whether it’s an indie film, feature length, or video game. Composing orchestral music that doesn’t call too much attention to itself can sometimes be a daunting task.
