Skylights: Adventure Trailers for Family and Fantasy

The new trailer music release in the SonicTremor line has just hit the airwaves. Skylights is a bold collection of twelve new pieces of music crafted for motion picture advertising specific to the genres of family, children, adventure, and fantasy. I co-wrote many of these pieces with Michael Elsner, and they span the stylistic gamut from orchestral over to pop, and sometimes morph between those two poles.

For this project, we recorded a string section in Greece to overlay the elements recorded in our studios in the US, and the live orchestra greatly enhanced the expressiveness of the pieces.

Here’s the official PR writeup:

Adventures through magical and wondrous worlds await those with the courage and strength to explore them. This is the essence of skyLIGHTS: Adventure Trailers for Family and Fantasy. Full of exciting and uplifting orchestral themes interwoven with elements of modern pop, skyLIGHTS encompasses all that is action and adventure in the family and fantasy realms. From playful and animated ukulele, mandolin, piano and glockenspiel hooks to epic orchestral builds, titanic melodies, and dramatic pounding percussion, skyLIGHTS is a modern take on the Family Adventure genre.

Doing some trumpet and trombone parts for a new marching band cue. Thank you to my high school band directors who gave me a ton of experience in this genre! https://t.co/UtwCFBX2r7

If anyone's going to invent a flux capacitor, it won't be Elon Musk; it'll be Denis Goekdag from @zynaptiq. https://t.co/tjmpTWd5dQ daviddas photo
