Examples of musical cues ripped from Midi files
for the course on film scoring for musicians

Ben Henderson (Cubinoid) has created musical cues by extracting notes from midi files - 17 March 2008 - 10 points

The single chord mood is a fanfare - the beginning or ending of something important. I stripped some of the notes out, because they were forming a rhythm within the chord that didn't need to be there.
The rhythm is very delicate. I stripped a flute melody away from it to reveal it more fully.
The melody is very obviously Star Wars, but it has a slightly subdued feel to it, the feeling of continuing a struggle against oppression - it has quite a bit of movement and feeling to it.
Instructor's Suggestion
The instructor has created the same musical cues but with fewer notes. Fewer notes are better in some cases. What do you think?
