Examples of Orchestral Music - composition,
recording and performance by Lee Nicklen

Big Easy - by Lee Nicklen
An American sounding orchestral piece originally written and composed for a client's multimedia project. This piece of music has an almost slick-modern upbeat country and western undertone. Think L.A. Orchestra. It would be well suited for a quirky scene in film.

From Three To Four by Lee Nicklen
This short piece of 'orchestral music' was composed by myself for a trailer for a game. The music is rather quirky and full of colour. Everything you hear is played 'as live' and pretty much unrehearsed. All was recorded on the fly - with each multi-tracked sequence being played 'as-live' using my much loved and well used Fatar Studio 900 mother keyboard along with Steinberg's Cubase/VST and much of the sound coming from Tascam's Giga Studio and Native Instrument's Kontakt as the source for most, if not all, of the sound you hear.

Galleon - First Born by Lee Nicklen
A long epic piece of 'orchestral music' which was composed back in 2003 by myself for a game by Toby Gard - the creator of Tomb Raider. The music is full of incidental passages along with flighting scenes with recapitulations embraced. Everything you hear is played 'as live' and pretty much unrehearsed. All was recorded on the fly - with each multi-tracked sequence being played 'as-live' using my much loved and well used Fatar Studio 900 mother keyboard along with Steinberg's Cubase/VST and much of the sound coming from Tascam's Giga Studio as the source for most of which is heard here, if not all, of the sound you hear.

No Avail - by Lee Nicklen
In this rather moody yet dynamic piece of orchestral music, you can hear a very good example of what I am capable of composing - creating intense scenes of music with 'flavoured' recapitulations, which are evident throughout.
All music was recorded on the fly - with each multi-tracked sequence being played 'as-live' using my beloved and well used Fatar Studio 900 mother keyboard along with Steinberg's Cubase/VST and much of the sound coming from Tascam's Giga Studio using individual instrument libraries (no loops or ready-played phrases here) as the source for most, if not all, of the sound you hear.
