And the film was called ‘Stargate: Bringer of War’ – an idea from my good friend Colin Ross Smith of Foghorn Films. The title gave me the absolute right to blend the original Stargate theme by David Arnold with Holst’s well-known ‘Mars – the Bringer of War’ from his ‘The Planets’ suite. The result was what you hear here.
Quite the ambitious project – the feature-length fan film never quite made it off the ground. The track is quite a few years old now, but still somewhat holds up. I’ve thought of re-orchestrating the track, but I always run the risk of failing to do it justice. Perhaps I should just leave it alone… 😀
