Fantasy Suite (2007)
recording by University of Texas Symphony Orchestra
For several years, especially during my Master’s program, I became very interested in film scoring. This piece was the largest output of some courses I took in those regards. The idea behind it was that many composers come up with a suite of thematic ideas for a movie before writing the specific cues for any given scene. This suite was for some sort of “fantasy” inspired film (think Lord of the Rings) and contains the main theme, a love theme, a “happy” theme, the premonition of bad stuff, the battle, the victory, and a few other things.
