    Establishing genres in trailer music

    Establishing genres in trailer music

    In today's episode, I answer a question I received from one of my awesome TMCP listeners (and TMS customers).

    The question was simply, "How to I establish genres in trailer music?"

    As this kind of covers two distinct areas of the job I decided to cover both in the episode.

    As you know I love helping people with this output so that is exactly why I have started asking for questions to be submitted to me to answer on the show.

    Christian Henson - The origins of Spitfire, dealing with anxiety & the secret to his productivity

    Christian Henson - The origins of Spitfire, dealing with anxiety & the secret to his productivity

    In this episode I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Christian Henson (@christianhensonmusic). An absolute legend of a man and a super nice dude! 
    Once I got my initial fanboying out of the way Christian and I had a fascinating conversation about his earliest memories as a composer and how he got into the business, the origins of Spitfire audio, dealing with his anxiety and his "secret" to productivity.
    I was incredibly honoured that Christian was so open and honest about his anxiety and hearing that one of the composers whom I look up to most has suffered from it too it was like a weight off my shoulders.
    You will also be interested to hear that we both share similar ideas of what being "productive" looks like and how you can adapt that to your own life.
    All this great stuff aside, I had a really fun chat and I know you guys are going to absolutely LOVE this episode!

    Are you struggling with this too?

    Are you struggling with this too?

    ❤️ Grab your FREE blueprint to the perfect trailer cue.

    I have been a working composer for almost 15 years now. I started in custom; it was exciting, it was fast paced, it was way out of my comfort zone. I LOVED IT.

    Fast forward all those years and I am only now realising the effect that the custom way of life has effected me, not just as a composer but also as a human bean!

    This episode is a bit of a self help for myself episode whilst also hoping that at least one of you will resonate with this struggle and hopefully it will help.

    You know I love walkthroughs and you do too (I know you do). This one is a different one today. It's another trailerised "solo" violin track. This was one of thirty tracks I composed aimed at (pretty unashamedly) HBO promos, BBC dramas, and other thrillers alike.

    IF you struggle to complete your trailer tracks or run out of ideas then grab my free blueprint and watch/listen to this episode. I show you step-by-step how I make one single bar rhythm into an entire trailer cue.

    From nothing to published with Jon R. Mohr

    In today’s episode I talk with composer Jon R. Mohr. Jon reached out to me on Instagram about coming on the show. He was keen to share his story of going from nothing to now writing for trailer publishers all whilst dealing with his speech impediment.
    Jon is a cinematic composer and producer from Ohio, specializing in cinematic music ranging from film scores to epic trailer music. He is completely self-taught. He's written music for a variety of short films, as well as composed the soundtrack for the game TurBot on steam.

    Oh Schrieber, My Schrieber

    In today's episode I talk about the origins of my pseudonym, Richard Schrieber, and why I am no longer going to be working under that name.

    Basically it is not necessary anymore and still very confusing for me and everyone else. Hee hee.

Pure Inspiration

This podcast reinvigorated my drive to make music. And the best advice Richard gives doesn’t even have to do with music! Ok, most of it does, but he does an amazing job tackling personal obstacles that all artists face, like perfectionism, motivation, confidence, and burnout. Worth listening to even as a hobbyist composer!

Great tool for TMS students

I’m a Trailer Music School student and have found this podcast extremely helpful and informative. Keep up the good work. Now if I could only figure out how to get accepted into the TMS student support groups 🤔

Great info!

I am a composer that has recently expanded into trailer music. I have been trying to teach myself and finally decided to purchase The Trailer Music School course. It is giving me such great information and I am supplementing the course with the podcast and YouTube. This is just fantastic information and I want to also thank Richard for the clarity in which he explains everything. So many tutorials assume a certain level of knowledge, and are difficult to follow along, but this is clear and wonderful. Thanks again
