I am thinking this will be mainly focused on “rhythm & percussion”, at least that is how I think about Battle Music :wink:

But let’s see what entries we get for this challenge, it will be very interesting! :slight_smile:

Great examples - this is so far out of my comfort zone - not good at percussion at the best of times. @Mikael got your percussion and how to compose epic cinematic music courses so need to work through them.

Does anyone have favourite cinematic battle music? There’s quite a few game soundtracks I like but don’t think they would fall into this category. Need to do some research me thinks. Will give it a bash though - if nothing else it will push me.

Remember, even though my examples were more “army battles”…you could also go the other way: “One on One” Antagonist vs Protagonist battle. It’s all good! :wink:

For game soundtracks: check out the “Battle Theme” from Final Fantasy 7. Super focused on rhythmic playing styles and riffs. And you really get a sense of the action :slight_smile:

Not sure how to approach this. Its not the sort of thing I do. If I can think of something I’ll give it a try. Maybe try to copy some professionals epic music? I can’t possibly copy music accurately so whatever I do will sound different (whether it sounds goo or not is another story. We’ll see. I have 2 weeks. Better drag Logic up and get started. P.S. I really like this idea of composing a different genre each month.

Remember, a battle can also be between a boss and a hero, not only “war”. I hope you will give this a try and come up with something. :slight_smile:
