Here is my piece ‘Battle Cry’.
Creative Vision: After watching Game of Thrones this summer I wanted to create a short Epic track that depicted a battle scene. I wanted to test myself and see if I could tell a story of a battle in less than 5 minutes. The biggest part of my vision was having an instrument be the “Battle Cry”. Let me know if you hear it!
Tempo: I chose a moderate tempo of 137 for this piece. I started with a string ostinato and built the piece around it. The ostinato sounded best at that tempo.
Harmony: The piece overall has a very simple harmony. bVI - bVII - I. I modulated to a few different keys to keep to momentum of the piece moving forward.
Hopefully you enjoy it and I would love to hear any constructive criticism!
