Music: We March as Brothers

This one is the composer's cut of the credits music from Ponder Pictures' upcoming short, working title "Brothers II". Please pray for Spencer Weaver and crew as they continue to work on this film!

A bit of trivia for my much appreciated blog visitors. Can anyone identify:

1. The wind instrument at 1:37 and another score in which it features prominently?
2. The piece of music that the director gave me to style the opening "Brothers' March" after?


Seriously, you all are much appreciated. I thank people in the comments all the time, but I am just now thinking about how much I enjoy getting y'alls responses.

Thanks sis. I love you too. :-)

Um.... Oboe?
And as for the piece that inspired it....
Part of it gave me a reminder of Runner From Ravenshead, but to dark and high-level action for that type. The rest, um...... Gladiator? (I've never even sen that movie so that was a COMPLETELY off the wall guess. :) )
Maybe a touch of Indiana Jones, but that score didn't have much of a dark feel to it, just adventure.
Great piece! I'll email you my full critique later!

Nopedynopedynope. :-D

(Gladiator is actually the score that I was thinking of which uses this instrument so prominently.)

Gabriel Hudelson said...

(Oh, and I'll look forward to the feedback, David!)

The first part sounds very piratey... Would that be modeled after some of the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack by Hans Zimmer?

The woodwind sounds like some kind of horn... I wouldn't have a clue though. :D

Brilliant piece! I really enjoyed it. :)

Gabriel Hudelson said...

Thanks Aussie- and indeed, you are correct in placing the temp track.

The woodwind is called a duduk.

I really, really, REALLY like this one! It felt like a piece of music that would work with one of my books, so now I feel inspired. I will re-listen to this often when I begin writing. :) Good job. :D


Gabriel Hudelson said...

I'm glad to hear it, Jamie. Happy writing!

Grace said...

Gabriel, you just keep getting better and better! :D I'm excited to hear that you're scoring Spencer's film. :)

Wind instrument: I'm afraid I don't know.

Temp track: It's gotta be Pirates of the Caribbean by Hans Zimmer. :D

And you're very welcome. I enjoy your blog. :)

Grace said...

And I promise, I did not read Bushy's comment before commenting! :D I guessed it all by myself. :)

Gabriel Hudelson said...

Thanks, Grace! You guesseth correctly, and I suppose you know the instrument now, too. :-D

Rebekah said...

I confess that I have no idea about either question... *sighs* I loved the piece though. It was really good! You really are getting more and more skilled at composing all the time! (Though I do still really enjoy listening to your old, old ones - like "Rain". :)

To the KING be all the glory!

Gabriel Hudelson said...

Wow... "Rain"... what a blast from the past.


But thanks!

Yep, "Gladiator" was the score I was thinking of when I heard the wind instrument as 1:37. Very nice work.
