Genre/Style: This is an emotional cinematic soundtrack.
Main Instruments used: I used the soft LABS piano that I love, and most of the other orchestral instruments such as violins, trumpets and cellos are from Free BBC Symphony Orchestra. The string spiccatos are from the free orchestra. I also decided to use synths from LABS too to make it more soundtrack-like.
Creative Vision for the Track: I really wanted it to be sad but with a bit of motivation and optismism. For the title I chose Blinded because of what is happening right now, people hiding themselves and not wanting to see the truth. The mounting chord progression was there to make it more grandiose with the horns. I really liked the piano keys which I think made the sound deeper. I wanted it to make it look like the person was thinking about how bad his life has been but that he can now change it.
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc): For the first part and last part, the chords I used were flirting around G minor:
I took a bit of inspiration from John Williams chords in The Immolation Scene soundtrack in Star Wars III (my favourite one don’t hate me hihi), though mine is far pless tainted with sadness and despair than this masterpiece.
Then towards the middle part I made a mounting chord progression that finally comes back to the main 4 chords, even though I hesitated over changing the key.
The tempo is at 80 BPM and I wanted it to sound slow in the first and last parts but with a faster rythm in the middle section.
Anyways I’d love to hear your feedback!
