    Make warlike music not war! 2 soundtrack demos

    Hi folks! It's been a while since I submitted anything, so here goes. The following are demos for a military game. I tried to get as powerful and Hollywoodesque brass sound as possible.

    Main theme:

    Heavy action theme:

    (the second demo is fixed for loop play so you can listen to it till you pass out

    There was some very minor help from Roland JV-Orchestral board on the action demo, but otherwise it's all GPO.

    Advice on improvements is welcome and appreciated!

    Cheers Matt

    PS: Gary, will you give us staccato FF brass samples, pleeeez?

    Very nice brass scoring! The crescendos were especially well-done. The percussion was also great. I love the heavy action theme. Thanks for sharing, I enjoy your work.

    Good stuff - thanks for sharing!

    There is a phrase around 1:05 in the Heavy Action theme that is very reminiscent of Michael Kamen's "Robin Hood" fanfare (Morgan Creek Studios)...

    Aw heck!! I swear I didn't remember it one bit when writing the stuff

    But with the prevailing ultra-minimalistic leading themes in the movies for the past 15 years, no wonder a lot of it sounds alike I complained several times on this forum about that phenomenon. My fave soundtrack of the last decade, LOTR I., the main theme in that one was identical to the ending of Keith Emerson's Piano Concerto 3rd movement, and that one in turn reminded me of something else ...

    anyways thanks for listening!

    Now this is good. In the first one I see Commandos sneaking about in the night doing their business and making a perfectly timed egress. The second one could use a little development . Good work.
