Genre/Style: Cinematic style epic track for intended use in media.
Creative Vision for the Track: I wanted to continue my exploration into writing themes using barebones material; orchestrating and arranging on top of the simple ideas, exploring layering and thickening and deepening the sound experience. I set the music to some scenes from Akira to give an idea of how the music could translate to big screen.
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc): The time signature is 5/4 to give that exciting cinematic pump. All of the music is derived from the opening melodic sequence of four notes. There are only 3 chords really; G-, C- and D, a typical i - iv - V, exploring inversions rather than new material.
Main Instruments used: All made in Logic Pro X using East West Quantum Leap Stromdrum 3, Silk and Ra for the eastern sounds and Symphonic Orchestra for the strings. An Arturia DX7 (one of my favs) mskes an appearance along with teh awesome Alchemy synth for the electronic sounding parts.
