Julius Fucik - Entry of the Gladiators

Discussion in 'Tips, Tricks & Talk' started by Alexander Schiborr, May 4, 2018.

  1. Hi my friends,

    Had some work to do with that piece this week and mocked that up due to a clients request.
    My question: Is anybody of you interested in some orchestration presets from that track? I actually thought to write them down and would post them also here if you think that this might cool? I think there are couple of cool presets and colors which you can allready apply to your orchestral work. Also Fucik is cool to look at his brass writing (voicing and orchestration). I would put a few points together. Anybody interested maybe?

  2. Alexander, I absolutely loved this.

    I only listened on my MacBook Pro Speakers, but the vibe is bang on, though perhaps it might be a little more up tempo with a bit more snap. The reverb settings are bang on - close my eyes and and I can smell the elephants.

    Did you arrange this yourself ? (impressed if you did) or did you work from a score ?

    I've listened to it three times now and it's put a smile on my face. I want Candy Floss !!!

    I, for one, would love to hear anything you've learned about brass orchestration - (my weakest area).

    Best, Michael.

    OK, Guys, I am preparing a few notes then.

    @Michael Antrum Cool you had a good ride with the piece. I used several sources, parts of the score, in addition a bit transcribing by ear, midi sources also. All over the place just to make sure that I don´t miss something.. I had several versions. Actually I decided to go by one version close and used that as a reference. The Goal was to make it as authentic as possible to fool the at least casual listener.
  5. Hej guys,
    Just a quick update: I haven´t forgot this, but I have actually very less time because I have some work to do with creating classical pieces (actually mozarts Figaro with samples which is incredibly hard to do) and other mockups. I have already made a few notes and do more from the fucik piece. Just to let you know. I will be back.
  6. Sounds like an interesting project. I would love to hear more about it when you have time.
  7. All good things comets those who wait.
  8. Been thinking about this since I first heard it, please share presets when available. The overall mix and orchestration sounds bang on.

  9. Oh man, I still need to do those presets guys, I am very sorry but the last couple of months were extremely busy on my side as the projects were flying in constanly. However then I had my marriage last saturday in denmark, and I am still a bit drained from the trip. But I will hopefully come back with some ideas to share.
    Rohann ,do you mean production things here, or just the presets in orchestration that I was talking about?

  10. Congratulations! So you got married last week, yet no honeymoon trip?

    Congratulations also on "projects rolling in constantly." It is very gratifying to hear that your hard work and talent have been paying off for you financially. What kind of work are you getting?
  11. Congrats on getting married! I'm assuming that's what you were talking about when you mentioned to me going on vacation. :D

    Thank you Paul, much appreciated. Maybe a little one. We had only the weekend there. I am grateful for that I could do some projects during the last months. The work was very different. I worked for a Band from England, then for my partner label in the US for a couple of tracks, then for a german client producing media or some placements, e.g. for a TV commercial. I have done very different soundtrack works for each of those projects. The last one was some kind middle eastern but cinematic filmish soundtrack. I would wish to post more of my commercial work but often I can´t.

    Thank you Dillon, Yes, Spot on that was the little vacation. I will still come back to your mail :D sorry for the delay, mate.

  13. Wedding pictures? Please post at least one wedding picture!

    The jobs you descibed are so varied it is amazing. I know what you really want to do is orchestral music. Perhaps that will happen soon.
