West World Competition entry

Recommended Posts

Hi, fellow musicians!

I don't have a song to present exactly, but here's my entry for the West World scoring competition by Spitfire and HBO. It's a video clip from HBO's show West World that you have to write music to.

I used a hybrid electronic and classical (orchestral) sounds for the scoring. Feedbacks are welcome.  Hope you enjoy!

And if any other fellow Cakewalk user is also into making film music/game music, I would love to connect with you! Make sure you say hi in the comments!

 Thank you!

Westworld has moved on a tad from the Yul Brynner days.

Not bad Kaustub.

The new show is pretty entertaining.  BTW Kaustub nice job.  Hope you win!  (can you imagine judging these....there's probably thousands to *sift* through) :D:D

It's hard to really listen to the soundtrack while watching the action but it did sound appropriate. Have to say that after a while I didn't really notice the music, but I know that it's actively setting the mood.
Might be interesting to show a short clip of the movie with and without your soundtrack.

Kaustub, I think that's pretty well done! Your music is synced beautifully with the action; didn't override or otherwise obscure the essential audio ingredients of the clip; and is present enough to set a tone but not so forceful that it intrudes.

Thank you, David! Yeah, it would be insane, haha! There are SO many submissions — in fact, Spitfire has moved the date of announcing the winners to 27th of June!

Thank you, Bjorn! Yes, sometimes even I forget what I'm trying to hear while working!

Hi.  I am trying to import video- I tried it both in cw by bandlab, as well as cakewalk platinum, and it takes FOREVER to import even a short 12 second clip.  And once it is imported, it only plays the audio clip but there is no video.  I really want to get into film scoring, but maybe my computer is not strong enough,?  I'm currently using a core 2 quad 9650 with 16gb of ram and a 512mb AMD 4650 radeon.  is my computer strong enough?  or am I doing something wrong when I try to import videos?  any help would be appreciated.  thanks!
