Creative Vision for the Track
I am trying to expand both my styles and my repertoire of demo pieces, one area I haven’t spent a ton of time in that I want to really increase my abilities is the Epic genre. I created this piece with that in mind, although I didn’t have any one specific scenario in my head other than something tension-filled which builds toward the end.
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc)
Tempo throughout is 100 bpm. I used the following chord progression throughout: Am, B♭M, CM7, EM, Am. Em7, Bm.
Main Instruments used
As most of my pieces do, I used East West libraries for my primary orchestral instruments: strings, brass, some percussion (cymbal, timpani, snare), and piano. I also included a synth, electric bass, and brass section from Air Xpand2, as well as some of the Storm Drum libraries from EWSL. As far as effects, I used a basic compressor, equalizer and light reverb.
For the choirs, I used both men and women choruses from EWSL, from the vowels selections as well as the Word Builder, where I made use of a few Latin phrases including “Carpe Noctem”
Hope you enjoy.
