Timothy Schmalz’s Composer’s Assistant Blizzard Portfolio

︎ Inspired by many of the WoW cinematics and various other Blizzard games, I decided to write an orchestral piece solely for the purpose of this application. It showcases various musical strutures that could function for gameplay, menus, cinematics, cutscenes, and so on. I decided to also write a transition (at aprox. 2:37) to the original WoW theme, in a sense reimagining and utilizing alternate orchestration ideas to further showcase my skill set for MIDI mockups applied to a potential real life situation. 

Additional Music materials featuring strictly orchestral mockups:

︎ Having been a long time Sibelius user, I recently switched to Finale to explore more orchestration possibilities and to enhance my workflow. In an effort to become more familliar with the program, I took one of my absolute favorite moments from one of my favorite symphonies, Mahler’s Ninth, and copied the page in a film scoring format. In the process, I utilized and perfected a touch OSC template inspired by many current orchestrators (David Shipps, Tim Davies). 

︎ Included below are some examples of my current Logic template with my own solution for articulation switches and a touch osc template, which is a front end tool for running background scripts (via Keyboard Maestro) as well as native app key commands for faster & optimized workflow. The template I currently use is a seamless Finale and Logic work flow solution, aiding my workflow in every step of the process from mock-up to finished orchestral score.

︎ In addition, I have experience working with Pro Tools, Reaper, & Cubase.

Thank you for taking the time to read and listen. It would be a joy to work for you!
