As another test of my recently constructed orchestral template, I made a mock-up of the Stargate SG-1 TV theme.
This is my take on the absolutely amazing Stargate theme, originally composed by David Arnold for the 1994 sci fi classic. An older version of this ‘remix’ was arranged for a feature-length Stargate fan film that never quite made it into existence, which mashed together some elements from Roman mythology into the Stargate universe. Hence, there is some not-so-subtle nods to Holst’s ‘Mars, the Bringer of War’ in here.
I made a new remix! This time around I’ve taken to the title and menu themes of Wolfenstein 3D – a game that still gives me shivers every time the scary guy with the chain gun screams ‘Hawt Dawg!’. A small warning – the final theme is actually a Nazi anthem by Horst Wessel, and featured in the original game as the title music. My use here is in no way a glorification of the Nazi regime, but more of a celebration of BJ’s efforts to take it down. But I apologise in advance to anyone who is offended by...
I’ve just uploaded the soundtracks to a few of the trailers I worked on for Warhammer: Space Marine a little while ago.
I give you my latest orchestral remix – ‘Hero of the Heartlands’, based on the amazing Baldur’s Gate theme by Michael Hoenig.
Fury3 was one of my most favourite games growing up, and the intro to the game was what did it for me; the music by Kyle Richards made a huge impact on me. This week I had a go at updating the intro with some more modern sample libraries.
