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.

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.
