New music for "Dagger of Deliverance"

for a long time I wanted to write something like this: a flamboyant "final fight" track with broad, heroic themes swirling above driving ostinati. ... -champions ... D=13676086

Originally this piece belongs to the score I wrote for a student film project realised many many years ago and presented in these forums "The Dagger of Deliverance").
The music was produced via a MIDI-based digital sequencer and of course orchestral sample libraries. Unfortunately, the London Symphony Orchestra was just too busy at the moment for a recording session.

While the last bars in asymmetrical 7/8 meter surely feel a bit overloaded (with syncopated choir fills and such), I am quite happy with the overall arrangement and the final mix. But maybe I am a little bit biased since I listened to it too often and it's just chaos to your ears... If you have some hints on how to improve the mix, sound, orchestration etc. please feel free to let me know.

Best regards,

I like it. It is pretty busy near the end, but I could totally see it working well in certain contexts.

At last, here is the complete film excerpt, to which this piece as well as two more cues were originally written:

The film itself is obviously very trashy and extremely LOW-BUDGET (shot in 2005 with a discounter camcorder), but I was primarily interested in the opportunity to finally write film music in the musically incredibly rewarding fantasy genre.
Hope you'll enjoy it! :)
