Default My original music

I've been composing for a decade now, and while I've been apart of many communities like this one, I rarely have shown off my works. Nowadays I'm just happy to share my original compositions, and welcome any comments or criticism listeners might have. Mostly I'd consider myself a composer of game music--although I equally enjoy writing for the concert hall. From 2007 to about April of 2010 I had been composing music for the games Horse Isle and Horse Isle 2. With those duties completed, I have three more games lined up--this time an entirely different kind of genre. I look forward to honing my skills and sharing my future work with the world!

Below I've linked three youtube videos, around 10 minutes each, that contain samples of my compositions. Some come from the games I've worked on, and others are standalone compositions. Again, I appreciate any comments/criticism you would like to share. Enjoy the music, and thanks for listening!

I listened to all three. Good stuff. I can see how you're influenced by video game music in your sense of harmony and instrumentation/arrangement. Speaking of which, I think you have a good grasp of both, as well as instrumentation. The melodies are nice, too, but since the clips are short, it's hard to judge how the pieces would turn out.

If I can give a little bit of advice that may or may not have any real relevance, maybe you could work on adding a bit more counterpoint. I know video game music is usually homophonic (or heterophonic), but it's always nice when there's a little polyphony to sweeten things up at times.

Incidentally, "Autumnal Wind" reminds me more than a bit of "Green Wind" from Soma Bringer...
