“A Hero’s Trial” is an acoustic orchestral track in the epic cinematic style. The track uses a full string orchestra of separate violin sections, violas, cellos, and double basses. There is also a timpani (orchestral drum) that is featured prominently.
The mood of the track goes from dark to heroic in the two sections. There is a mysterious introduction that builds into a deep and mysterious section before opening up into rich and full, bright harmonies. The music then returns to the dark section through seamless transitions, then once more becomes heroic before ending with a dark, ethereal ending.
This track is similar in style to some of the great Hollywood composers such as Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, and John Williams. This music is most suited towards the fantasy genre but could be integrated into a wide variety of media projects and video work including film and video game scenes and trailers.
