How to Compose an Amazing Score | No skills required ! [4K]

Learn how to compose your own Black Mirror style soundtrack on NI Massive & Cubase with very little musical skills. It is more like an “ambiance approach”, trying to recreate that of Black Mirror Episode S03E04 “San Junipero” as a starting point so that you feel inspired to further experiment stuff and create your own original piece of music. Playing synth live on a beach was a very fun adventure. Some brands are named but this video is totally unsponsored. Thank you very much for your support !

The aim was to help you get started with simple words, and I’m a filmmaker, not a real musician, so the production quality is way inferior to that of the original track Waves Crashing on Distant Shores by Clint Mansell, I think it’s a wonderful score, go check it out.
