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.
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.
