I love your work! It's fantastic to see how closely you communicate with your fans, too. Hearing about your journey writing the album gives off a great Indiana Jones/composer vibe to it. Have you ever thought about blogging updates about your album as you tour the world writing songs and working out the intrinsic details of the songs you write? Even if you wrote something up about each song after the album released it would be a cool thing to read! (Maybe you already do that and I missed it, haha. If that's the case, sorry about my ignorance.)
I've actually been capturing a lot of footage from my travels, and plan on releasing a series of behind-the-scenes videos about the process of making these albums. The first one will be posted to my YouTube account soon, in fact!
What are some practical ways to improve composition skills? I'm a budding composer in post-secondary and (beyond trying to find time) I am trying to find ways to improve my themes, expand my mental toolset, and find inspiration. What helps you? What helps other composers you've spoken with? Thanks for your great work, it's my favourite contemporary orchestral music to listen to!Christopher Tin responded on 04/30/2014 Next question
Will you ever compose more music for the Civilization franchise? What other video games have you been composing/planning to compose for?Christopher Tin responded on 04/30/2014
