"Exciting Trailer"

Instruments: Orchestral

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Dark, Driving, Epic, Intense

A militaristic snare drum march begins this piece, reminiscent of Eastern Europe during World War II. The orchestral sounds blend with the sharpness of the brass throughout, but especially after 0:36, when the music is lyrical and melodic, though intensely emotional and suspenseful. At 0:52, the rhythmic march begins again, with the strings playing the melody and the brass reaching discordant, swelling heights until the final crescendo at 1:10.
This piece of music is available in an uncompressed format here.

"The Rule"

Instruments: Trumpets, French Horns, Trombones, Tuba, Bells, Tympani

Feel: Epic, Uplifting

I sort of regal opening brass fanfare. It is meant to join at the end with another piece of music... which has not been written yet. This works as a stand-alone opening for most anything.
