SONGWRITING & ARRANGEMENT

songwriting symphonic metal production
Composing music for Symphonic Metal is the art of transferring an artistic vision into a piece of music that is understandable and above all emotionally accessible to the listener.
 
A big and symphonic sounding track with an epic orchestral arrangement doesn’t necessarily start in the mixing process. It mostly starts with songwriting and arrangement.
 
Together with the artist a musical vision is established and will be transformed into songs.
This is not only about the instrumentation, but also about the dramaturgy of a title.
The past has shown time and again that a successful arrangement will make the decisive difference whether a song works or not.

All the songs that are listed here started with an exceptional pre-production.

 
Also in this process, keyboard sounds and the epic orchestral arrangement are finalized. Cinematic sound FX are created to give transitions or breaks more drama.
If desired, whole songs can be written for the artist or existing songs and ideas can be arranged or added. It is always important that the vision of the artist is never lost. Therefore the permanent exchange of ideas is vital in this phase.
At the end of the songwriting session, the artist receives the individual tracks of the song in order to prepare himself ideally for the recording session. An own pre production is therefore no longer necessary.
