Brooding orchestral track. Starting with chiming piano, the intensity is increased by string sustains, shorts and tremolos. Melodic cello, legato double bass and a hint of brass swells add dramatic highlights and tension while pizzicato strings add a contrasting lightness to the piece. Full of suspense and expectation due to the clockwork-like piano and modulating chord progression, it has a dramatic, frustrated feeling.
Atmospheric hybrid track with a psychological edge. Making good use of cutting synth and string themes for suspense, and a deep, pulsing beat for tension and movement, there remains space for a piano melody to add progressive interest with a deliberately vague and ambiguous feel. An overall steady and tense piece that creates a mysterious, thrilling landscape.
Mystical, orchestral epic, with an ethereal quality. Soothing choir and lush strings and pads start us off, with rich brass swelling to a gently pulsing section of strings and woodwinds as it builds to a more epic finale of fanfare brass and timpani rolls. No stand out melodies, but an overall feel of wonder and enlightenment in a gentle and majestic setting.
Fantasy adventure track. Using the complete orchestra to generate an organised chaos, this fast paced piece features themes from all directions - string runs, woodwind answering phrases, brass interjections and relentless percussion all combining to create a circus of sounds with a hint of the macabre. A whirlwind of symphonic fantasy.
