Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings
Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful
This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.
|Split In Synapse
"Split In Synapse"
Instruments: Synths, Brass, Clarinet. Percussion
Feel: Action, Intense, Unnerving
A short piece that mixes the symphony with frenzied electronica elements and a dance beat. The horns are blasting and discordant, the synthesizer is manic, the effects disorienting, and the final cresecendo push is loud and forceful.
Instruments: Strings, Brass, Percussion
Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense
Timpanis and strings battle with a snare drum and horns throughout this epic piece, slowly building and rising to chaos. The music is high-action and only includes a few short dramatic interludes.
Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Strings, Synths
Feel: Action, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful
The first two minutes contain many changes and shifts in tone - all intense. The final minute is a collection of all that came before, ending in a pulse-quickening finale. This is music for an action film, or a scene that begins with tremulous anxiety and ends in a big way.
|Mistake the Getaway
"Mistake the Getaway"
Instruments: Brass, Strings, Kit, Percussion
Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful
The chase begins with horn blasts, and the kit plays a solid beat while the bass strings are a pulsing drone below the horn melody. The piece grows more tense and emotional, the strings taking the lead and rise into a flowing intensity. Danger returns in full force as the music crescendos and return for one final push.
