    Smugglers Ransom & Aquila

    Smugglers Ransom Theme

    Both are works in progress. I haven't been here in a long while, and have just started getting back into my routine again. I'll have to catch up on all the listening in this forum!

    Wonderful rhythmic undercurrent in the first half of Smugglers Ransom.
    The relatively sudden transition into the slow, lyric segment also works
    quite well -- difficult to do smoothly! I might suggest slightly less
    reverb on this: it might sharpen the articulations of the rhythmic
    work in the first half.

    The aquila.mp3 file is returning a 404-not found, however; and I
    was not able to listen to that.

    Hi, this is very good and professional. Perfect for a movie... very dramatic with lots of tension in the beginning. Great rendering too... I do at times hear a slight resemblance to a Batman Begins theme...
    Keep up the good work and please post more.

    Thanks for the comments. I'll work on that transition a bit more I think.

    http://chrishurn.com/Aquila.mp3 is the corrent address for the other one.

    Haha you're right about the batman begins reference - due to my intense ambition to become a film composer one day (right now i'm 17, i do shorts & festival films), I listen to a lot of film music (hans zimmer is my favourite), and at the moment my 'sleeping music' cd is batman begins. hahah, i better be carful!

    Two excellent works!!! I really like the styles of both and the orchestration fits them well, really delivering the goods. Thanks for sharing them.

    Thanks for the correct link to Aquila, Chris -- glad I
    didn't miss this.

    Great job on this one, too, wow... strong writing and
    excellent rendering, again. I really like the rhythmic
    handling in both pieces... quite well done.

    Thanks! Smuggler's Ransom is for a film where they already have a composer but asked me to write a theme. It's on the website now if anyone wants to check it out: http://www.smugglersransom.com/

    By the way, the voice over the high passage is my litle brother.

    Thanks for listening.
