I was planning on doing something more towards the romantic side originally, but got carried away by the piano chord progression in the intro, and decided to do something a bit more dramatic. Uncharted territory in foreign land… A bit of an exciting moment there, but all is well, and then comes a “good days” kind of theme, followed by a descant horn repeating the last bit, which then blooms into a more epic brass part.
I’m not sure how coherent it all is, but things just kind of followed naturally - and it’s not like I had time to analyze and rework anything.
Another quick job, as there’s been too much overtime and other distractions lately, so it’s a rather simple arrangement, and the mix is pretty much all baked reverb (or integrated IRs in the case of Infinite), apart from piano and pan flute.
Structure is basically ABA, preceded by a long intro. The main theme is the A section, with just a solo violin over a sparse arrangement the first time, and the full orchestra coming in the second time. The B section is an evolution of the last few notes of the main theme.
Rhythm is constantly marked by some combination of piano, harpsichord, and woodwinds.
