Excelsior (Title Theme)

Get Flash to see this player.

This is the theme I wrote for an audio drama I work with, Star Trek: Excelsior. The theme premiered in the most recent episode.

For this, I was asked to start with the familiar opening bars, but everything after the first few seconds is my original work. Written with the Finale equivalent of the pencil tool. :)

Comments very welcome. :)

Very cinematic
Nice work getting all of that 'build' into less than two minutes. There is something about a couple of those woodwind sounds in Finale that I just don't find particularly convincing, but then, I suppose you didn't get a budget for recording a symphony orchestra either :) It is well orchestrated, though, and definitely takes us where a theme should go, giving an idea of the kind of drama we're going to be experiencing.

The arrangement is very good, and you pack a lot of dynamics into a short piece! Very cool. Peace.
