Hollywood Blockbuster ThemeInspired by the fallen of the great battles of the past, this piece is a reflective, melencholic and yet heroic nod to the bravery of the armed forces in the great world wars. My intention was to show both the sadness and futility of war alongside the great sacrifices made by so many young men and women. This is perfect for large scale film soundtracks, TV, websites, documentaries, dramas or any project requiring a full orchestral accompaniment. Orchestrated using 48 channels of instruments with Cubase 7.5, Vienna MIR Pro in the Teldex Studio Germany, Vienna Symphonic Library, Cinesamples and EastWest Quantum Leap orchestration tools. Mastered at 192KHz for optimal sonic quality.

He has an intuitive way of knowing what you want before you do; as soon as you hear his tracks you know THAT’s what you were after.”
