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.
