MUSIC - The Rescue
Why a poster from The Rocketeer? That's right... this piece is another one which draws from the style of a film composer that I admire- in this case, James Horner (it also weaves in elements from a certain unfortunately-named but excellent trailer scoring group).
I'm interested in hearing all y'all's thoughts in the comments. There's one thing in particular that I'm not sure that I like about the piece- but I'm not sure that it's necessarily a bad thing either. One of my previewers mentioned it, and my sisters agreed- it's not very consistent in tone. Is that a good thing? Bad thing? Well, I look forward to hearing your answer to that question.
Oh, and I did use a few modes in here- there are touches of Phrygian, and some sweeping passages in Lydian which actually kinda just happened that way. It's really neat being able to recognize it, though- praise God, I'm learning!
Also, I think this piece contains my most sweeping, romantic, Hollywood style big strings theme yet.
So. Here it is.
