Film Music 1/319

Film Music

Typical of film music is that music a) creates a functional and substantial reinforcement of the pictures, or b) assumes an emotional lead role. In contrast to a book, where it is possible for the author to prepare scenes, emotions, moods, etc. throughout several pages, the film director often has only a few minutes for this. Film music helps, therefore, to support the plots development at the mood and emotional levels. Here, the style or arrangement play less of a role.

The first movement of this instantly recognisable piano sonata starts off quietly to set a calm, delicate and slightly melancholic tone. As the emotions rise and fall, the intensity swells and diminishes gracefully. The Piano Sonata No. 14 op. 27 no. 2 in C sharp minor by Ludwig van Beethoven, completed in 1801, is also known as the Moonlight Sonata. Beethoven himself gave his work the nickname Sonata quasi una Fantasia ("... quasi a fantasy"). The term "Fantasia" refers to the unusual sequence of movements of the sonata. This explains the untypical tempos of the respective movements for the conventional sonata form. The work does not have a first (fast) movement in sonata form, which sonatas of this period usually contain. It begins with an Adagio, followed by a more lively Allegretto with Trio, followed by a fast, highly dramatic Finale, which has the structure of a sonata-form. What is striking here is that the tempo increases from movement to movement. Franz Liszt characterized the piece by describing the second movement as "a flower between two abysses".

A bombastic and majestic track cleverly created by combining samples with live orchestra and live choir recordings. Dramatic, staccato strings and brass sections lead the way into a powerful and intense trailer track with a thunderous percussion section. Growing to a crescendo and eventually into a climax. Highly suitable for fantasy, scifi, gearing up for war or battle, hard sports or high impact action footage, and more.

4. Boneriders 01:33

A strong rhythm of deep, ethnic percussion provides the base for this staccato, ominous and glorifying track with a dark fantasy feel. It builds gradually throughout, to a huge and overpowering tidal wave of orchestral brass, strings, war chants and a massive percussion section. Proud and majestic, but with a threatening, malevolent feel, like an army of dark beasts on the eve of war. Maybe even Pirates...

5. Arise from Ashes 01:19

Epic and sweeping cinematic track that starts mysteriously and ominously, then builds to glorious crescendo and finally develops into a staccato, hammering, powerful orchestral trailer track. Great material for film trailer, fantasy or sci-fi action, war or conflict, hard hitting sports footage and much more. Live orchestral instruments and live choir singers, combined with clever use of samplers to create a huge sound.

A dark and ominous piece with heavy use of the Taiko drum and japanese, chinese Gong. No melody, all percussion. Martial Arts, Japanese triads, dark, foreboding, military, historical, impending battle. Chase scene, etc.

A solo guitar piece with hugely Hispanic and Latin overtones. This habanera, (or dance of Havana), has a wonderful swaying theme which transports you to exotic places and bars. Great for travel sequences.

One of the most famous pieces of music for solo piano. Despite having the instruction, 'Lent et douloureux', (slow and painfully), this track is referred to for calm, relaxing and meditative purposes. Atmospheric and ambient.
