I bring you some good news: It's Monday, it's post time, and this is gonna be something REALLY BIG today. Bad news is that this week is gonna be the last one of this "season' (I need a break, I need my summer, sorry. But I'll be back soon, I promise). So let's end this as we started out. Today we are talking about Trailer Music Let's be honest, whether we make it classic or not, this is no brainer musically. However, it's not gonna sound big and it's not gonna sound huge, full, organic, and epic unless you use all your skills. I mean it, from the voicings and the orchestration to the mastering trailer music can be really challenging.
I like (intro)-A-ShortB-Breakdown-A-End as a form for this tracks, you are gonna find this a bunch of times in the genre I also like straightforward pop harmonic progressions for trailer music because you want a lot of things to stand out before the harmony when you make this tracks. Don't forget this is still music to picture. What's more, curiously in this case the picture is gonna be edited (cut) to a previously bought trailer track, so don't bring the public's attention to what's going on in the music, just make something huge and simple to enhance the visuals.
And last but not least, sit down im front of the keyboard with everything planned. Otherwise it'll be everlasting. Trailer music is really time consuming if you want to reach a certain level, you can't just sit and wait for the inspiration, it's definitely not gonna happen that way.
And now it's your turn, I would love some feedback from you guys :) Do you like the music? Do you feel this sound belongs inexorably to Marvel/Avengers stuff this days? What kind of movie trailer would fit this music in your view? Let me your thoughts on the comments below and See you next Thursday with the last music post of the season!
