Liner Notes: 

fancy autumn skirmish!

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

nicely done- great orchestral textures there, and it all sounds quite like a live orchestra doing its thing! impressive stuff!

Very dramatic. I could see this as music over a "Game of Thrones" type scene as they start to wrap up in sheepskin coats and gather food for the coming winter.

This is rich and lush. Congratulations on developing this kind of sonic depth in a skirmish!

Wow. This plays like an overture to a movie score. I love the transitions and the variety. Really activated my imagination. You’re very good at this type of composing!

Very regal sounding. Make me think of autumn striding in to take its place in the wheel of seasons! Really nice orchestration.

Oooh, loving what you're doing with the woodwinds in this. I don't think I've touched the clarinets or oboes in Discover at all, yet; I need to rethink my approach after hearing that opening. The moment when the horns finally arrive is glorious. I totally agree with the previous comments about this sounding like a movie score, because it hits so many different and very specific emotional beats as it progresses. Impeccably done!

Incidentally, you might find @ryako's Wednesday-night Twitch streams of interest as she's been working on scoring Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" recently

Fancy indeed - would work so well as a soundtrack. You've done amazing work here in the space of an hour. That little bit at the very end with the solo woodwinds having a conversation is just gorgeous.

Nice work, fast composing. Obviously and epic mood and is excellently orchestrated to my ear. Would work great in a medieval-type film or even a nature underscore.

Very epic and complete in such a short time frame. Lovely instrumentation. Nice one mate! .

I should have known you'd go this route, but I didn't. This sounds so good. I agree it could be used as a score in a variety of types of films, to me I was just picturing the orchestra playing it while watching from my nosebleed seats in the balcony.

The orchestral feel sounds like a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through a wind-swept fall landscape. Good use of the orchestral library!
