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.
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.
Mysterious and tense hybrid track. With fantasy elements and gothic overtones from the use of sparkling glockenspiel and operatic vocals, the piece marries various moods whilst always suggesting an impending danger and wonder. Running synth phrases, electric guitar stabs and shrill legato strings complement the rich and diverse landscape, backed by a strong and steady drum beat. A supernatural and mystical revelation.
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.
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.
