Tension

Description
This has no real story behind it - I just wanted to write something, so I did.
This is just a short piece written to an imaginary action movie.

Enjoy!

Up from the sunrise
I liked the way the legato section acted as intro and the cool rhythmic groove sneaks up on you, like Navy Seals from the beach at sunrise. THe more muscular melody variation works well. I actually wanted more. Now I want to see the movie...! Very mainstream, well done.

Re: The Navy Seals...
...interestingly enough, that's kinda what I had in mind when I wrote the piece.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by!
I always greatly appreciate your comments!

Lay of the Land
I was lowering the powered projection screen in one of our auditoriums while this music was playing. It made it all very dramatic. Now anything else will be boring.... ok - great song. loved every measure

Extreme ways!
I'm always glad to spice things up a bit - even if just for a minute or two!

Thank you very much for listening!

As always
a great journey. Nice blending of orchestral and rock elements...perfect trailer music. Not sure how the mix sounds on your end, but on my speakers there seems like a lot of mid-range frequencies that muddies it up just a little, maybe pulling out the cellos after the guitars and trombones enter would help. It might also just be my monitor setup.

You might be right
There is a bit of muddiness in there - i can hear it now.
Nothing that a little filtering won't fix :P

Thank you very much for your comment!

Wow!
Ok, I really enjoyed this. Great percussion; awesome use of synth, as it kind of becomes a percussive element. I:34, love how the brass comes in making way for that hard hitting full orchestral impact. Awesome work. I'm going to have to listen to the rest of your pieces now.

Einar,
Its been a while since I stopped by. I had forgotten what a truly talented and professional composer you are. I am delighted with this piece and must now update myself on all your other work. The crisp liveness of this music has such a "real" feel to it. Does not sound at all like library generations. Very well done.

The authenticity...
...of the sounds is all thanks to the Quantum Leap East West sample libraries.
And thank you very much for the kind words - I'm blushing over here.

Thanks for checking this out!

Cinematic
This sounds like a thriller to me... the hero is caught up in a conspiracy, uncovering secrets, running for his life. There's an ominous air over it all. Very nice work as always, Einar.

Sitting quietly...
waiting for great Helios to appear and spread the rays of life and love across the surface of land and sea. The tension mounts...

There! On the horizon!!!

(In case you can't tell; I thoroughly enjoyed this friend!)

Be well!

hi einar
very interesting piece, always keeps your interest. lovely bass synth sound that kicks in around 1.05. cool. so what sort of action is going on in this action movie?

Thanks!
Glad you liked the synth sound - I'm particularly proud of that one.

I had imagined some sort of Special Ops squad (Swat, Navy Seals etc.), preparing for an assault of some kind:
"Establishing shot -> set-up -> attempted negotiation -> confrontation"
Something like that, anyway :)

Thanks for listening!

"I just wanted to write something, so I did."
What the heck kind of artsy MacJams attitude is THAT?

No angst, no psychic anguish? You just made some music?

Einar, you've got to get with the program here...

Even so, I enjoyed this very much... Especially like the bass synth texture and the bass line it adorns....
