SPIRIT LEGION an impressive and awe inspiring sound experience

Let’s face it – a movie is only as good as its music. While that may sound a little it over the top, have you ever watched a movie trailer, played a video game or caught a commercial where the music wasn’t up to par with the message? It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, the effects are confusing and anything but successful. Rewarding gaming action, hard hitting emotion filled movies feature that epic background music that accents gameplay and the “apocalyptic” action taking place on screen. The right compositions will make the viewer experience the urgency and emotion of the visual content, whether the emotions are pure joy, sadness, fear, anger, or excitement. Without it, the project, be it a commercial, video game or movie trailer, can’t be compelling profitable.

SPIRIT LEGION by composer Dan Foster is an original trailer music that will make any advertising it’s used for stand out. It presents an impressive and awe inspiring sound experience, perfect for theatrical trailers, video game advertising campaigns and television commercials that want to leave a positive, lasting, first impression. As you listen, you can imagine yourself battling to the end, rising from the ashes like a magnificent Phoenix having saved the planet. Yes – it’s just that good.

Basically, although there’s nothing “basic” about SPIRIT LEGION and its tracks, what the consumers receives is an album that’s filled with flawlessly laid out tracks of hard driving music that pulls in the listener, washing over them with the sounds of perfectly orchestrated strings, powerful drums, angelic voices and more. All of the above fills the heart with expectancy and a sense of something surreal coming up next whether it’s a climactic chase scene, the battle for world domination or the point in the game or movie where the hero wins and heads out to take on his or her new challenge.

One of our favorites for trailers is “A Mounrful Chant”, presenting a mystical, ethereal experience, thanks to the combination of rich sounds and angelic like voices that drift in.

Another is “Navy Seal’s and as you listen you can picture brave soldier’s heading off to fight and win battles on some far away shore.

We also appreciate the exceptional and moving piano performance in “The Triumph of Light” with the strings and other instruments that effortlessly join in.

“Rebel Forces” is another one of those pieces that causes the listener to envision the battle of good against evil.

Each piece included in the SPIRIT LEGION set has something unique and special to offer that will making any production you’re developing stand out.

SPIRIT LEGION is an album that we would highly recommend for people who are either beginners or seasoned film/movie developers who are looking for something unique and powerful for their projects. Because the music manages to suit a variety of genres from almost angelic to explosive, it offers the user a wild combination of forms that will fit just about any mood or tone you want to set. Once again, Dan Foster delivers and regardless of how you choose to use it, SPIRIT LEGION will trigger exactly what you want the listener to experience.

The power of trailer music

Trailer music; usually when you put trailer before something you imagine something just a little bit different; trailer park, trailer hitch, trailer park boys etc. and if we follow that line of thinking you’d be expecting banjos, a guitar and bucket being hit with a spoon. Well trailer music is something just a *tad* different, and in some cases, much, much different.

Most people imagine that when you are watching a movie trailer, TV show trailer or concert trailer you are hearing music from the actual production itself, but that is often not the case.
The majority of the time you are actually listening to music composed by someone completely apart from the production, and in some cases, music that had been composed prior to the trailer even being started called trailer music. Shocking right?
It fits so well! Well that’s because the composers produce this trailer music to fit a wide variety of different themes and styles to make it as versatile as possible.

Once you delve a little deeper into trailer music, you start to understand why it is becoming more and more popular. Because of its production quality and ease of use, these pieces are plug and play when you need a quick teaser trailer, or even a full-length trailer, making them a quick and easy alternative to custom music. But why don’t these multi-million dollar companies just commission original work for these trailers? Because it takes a special mind and way of thinking to compose these 2 minute on average, fully developing and complete pieces.
John Beal, a composer of over 2,000 different trailer music pieces, says that it « is something a lot of composers, including guys who are way better than I am … just can’t do” because of the difficulty in writing something that “develops so fully and extremely in two minutes » (The Guardian, 2011).

So yes it is a difficult thing to create on a whim, but who uses this pre-written trailer music and where do they find it? Well savvy reader, producers from all walks use it in lots of different circumstances like film trailers, TV promos and commercials or even in the shows themselves. Sports productions use trailer music for highlight reels, as do video games and more. They usually contact the people who run what’s called “trailer libraries” or the composers themselves.
These “trailer libraries” usually having a vast array of music to pick and choose from and they will license it out to be used by whoever is producing the trailer for various purposes, for a fee of course.
If you take a look at some of the huge libraries out there you will find things like action music, Brazilian beach, romance, adventure, sci-fi trailer music and more, all linking you to a multitude of music, each that can fit a variety of situations and trailers and all available for license. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me!
So in essence, trailer music is a versatile, vast, expanding business that produces music for motion picture advertising music production collective, specializing in original epic music and powerful sound design for theatrical trailers, television commercials and video game advertising campaigns.
The music is very adaptable, readily available and easy to use for all kinds of productions.
