Hello Composers, Mike here!
Track Description: A dark and evil composition with a powerful evil boss vibe, with a sense of authority from the marching groove.
My Creative Vision: My vision for this track was to show the essence of insanity and chaotic vibe among the twisted mind of darkness. The dark lord, and his minions holding a parade in his honor in the massive fires of hell itself!
Composition Overview: The composition starts in A minor, but with lots of dissonant chord changes, and rapid modulations of key throughout to really bring forward the chaotic vibe.
It is in 4/4 but basically all rhythms are written in triplets which makes the overall groove very loose and open. Compared to a standard 4/4 marching vibe, I wanted the evil beasts of hell to be rebels even in the way to march.
I also included a very dark and menacing breakdown which contradicts that marching vibe, and acts as a tension-builder and to boost the evil vibe.
Main Sounds: The sound palette is very focused on the brass section, and heavier overall on the low end range. There are a lot of layered staccato rhythms and stabs on strings and brass, even syncopated ones, to really get that chaotic yet powerful rhythm across.
