Topic: Dante's Theme

  1. #1

    Dante's Theme

    Here is

    Dante's Theme

    Dante is an assassin character who is also a shape-shifter. He seems like a villain at first but is revealed to be one of the three main hero figures, and the music reflects this. Overall the theme is cold and lonely, but also has some energy due to the events of the character's story.
    This track is from the Golden Age project, a fantasy style audio play production.

    Uses GPO layered with EWQLSO

    Thank you for listening

    Very evocative, very cinematic. Your description is apt; and you have a lot of material for you, and your character, to develop. Stunning realization! Wonderful orchestration, fabulous control over the samples, reverb is just right - in short, BRAVO!!

    When is the film going to be released?

    I agree with the others here, this is stunningly created and orchestrated music. It truly captures the imagination. What version of EWQLSO did you use together with GPO here? Great job. Thank you.
    Kind Regards

    Sam, this is excellent! Masterful use of thematic material, exceptional structural planning, great rendering. Like other responders, I would like to know how this was inspired, planned, notated, and rendered. Congratulations on a wonderful piece. Thanks for posting this.

    I used Gold which I had recently purchased about a month ago, been using Silver before that hehe. Much of the strings and supporting instruments are GPO, brass is from Gold and also some VSL, additional instruments are from my trusty old keyboard lol

    Thanks very much for the comments, I had some trouble getting this song to sound right, had to go back and make some edits several times, but it is nice to know that it has been well received thus far!

    Masterful, Sam:

    Seems like your equipment, as I think you stated earlier, even though
    a bit humble, produces a fantastic product. And, that is because you
    are a talented virtual instrument musician.

    The orchestration is really great. Reminded me of a lot of "John Williams"
    stuff. Also, the percussion really makes this piece. The shimmering cymbals
    and gongs really provide a setting for the strong horns.

    Yes, Sam, really cinematic and done so very well.

    BRAVO and more,

    You really take it to the limit here. It really slams you.

    You have to create a world just with your music and you do it very well.

    I noticed the change in the libraries. It gives it quite a boost in quality.

    Hope to see your name on a major movie's music credits some day.

    Gorgeous work again, Sam... you never miss.

    I admit I know nothing about the accompanying audio
    play... but from my perspective, they could skip the
    talking and just do an album of the music... lol!

    Keep it coming, Sam -- every time's a pleasure:
    intriguing, inventive writing, great rendering, the

    All my best,
