Gordy Talks About Creating Music For Video Games And Films

In the podcast, Gordy shares his process for creating music for video games and films. 

He values his preference for writing music by hand, starting with a rough sketch on the piano. 

After creating a synthesized mock-up for approval, he moves to notation software to orchestrate the piece for the orchestra. 

Gordy highlights the importance of understanding each instrument in the orchestra, recommending listening to classical music while studying scores to recognize different sounds and instruments. 

He learned from John Williams's scores, using them as a reference to develop his color palette. 

Gordy adopted John’s orchestration techniques, comparing them to an artist's initial sketch, and incorporated them into his music to create an original score. 

Gordy also shares a technique he learned from film composer Jerry Goldsmith

He talked about using an English horn and two or three French horns playing with a wood mute to create a sad, sorrowful quality in his compositions. 

This combination works well for soft-spoken melodies, adding a layer of angst and emotion. 

Gordy values the importance of listening to and studying orchestral music to enhance one’s compositions. 

He recommends starting with recordings of orchestral pieces, looking at scores, and using resources like the Adler orchestration book.  

Gordy shared his experience of learning from Goldsmith and applying those lessons to his work in the Star Wars franchise.
