Here is my latest composition, “Symphony of the Barking Spiders” The style is dark, evil boss music. So, this composition came about by a request of sorts from a coworker of mine. They had this title in their head and asked if I’d write some music to fit it. I accepted as it sounded a bit fun, and as you can see by the title, it wasn’t meant to be too serious. But, I had two initial ideas and they said they were thinking boss music, so that’s what I went with, and it ended up a bit serious anyway
So the inspiration was to write something of a march for the spider boss and his minions; the barking spiders may seem a bit goofy, but don’t underestimate their evil plans!
The piece alternates between C minor and G minor and I created two themes; one melodic that I vary throughout and there is also a rhythmic theme that concurrently plays throughout. Mostly in 4/4 time at 116bpm (a la marcia).
Instruments/plugins used: Cinematic Studio Strings and CS Woodwinds, Abbey Road One and BBCSO for brass and percussion and doubling some string parts, PreSonus Room Reverb, iZotope Ozone 9
