ALBUM COPY

Fear the wrath of the almighty apocalyptic force! For tonight it is descended down from the North Pole on a sleigh pulled by ferocious reindeer to spread war, panic and chaos amongst the souls of Earth. With this collection of slamming, epic tracks we embrace the most powerful side of holiday sounds. The orchestra is blistering and the synths epic, while the holidays chimes and sleigh bells foretell the holiday doom. Program these tracks for epic trailer sounds of the holidays!

STRUCTURAL DIRECTION

All tracks should be approx. 2:30 in length. Please consider each track as 3 mini-cues or variations on a theme, encompassed in one cohesive track. Start small in section 1; introduce your ideas and set the mood for what is to come. Section 2 is the mid level intensity of your track. Expand the orchestration perhaps with a counter-idea and stronger approach. There should be a marked increase in intensity from sections 1-2. Section 3 is your final statement. State your idea one final time in as full a version as is warranted for the style. Again there should be a noticeable increase in orchestration and support from section 2-3. Unlike our other categories, there should be no breaks between sections, The entire track should flow together as one cohesive piece.

MUSICAL DIRECTION

Reference examples are embedded below. Use these for inspiration. Your tracks should be Edgy, Epic, Dark, Intense and Strong. Please capture the same spirit and feel of the references, even though they clearly do not adhere to the prescribed structural direction. Please, vary the instrumentation throughout yet keep each section at the same tempo. For this album, we recommend utilizing the following instrumental forces:

Full Orchestra, Synth Bass, Sleigh Bells, Chimes, Trailer Percussion

The above is suggested instrumentation to help you begin your track, please add additional instrumentation as warranted by the specific style.

 

TIMELINE

We like to see tracks turned around in a few weeks or less. That said, we are MUCH more interested in quality of both composition and production over quantity of tracks or speed of delivery. If you enjoy the process, we can definitely use your help on other albums as well. The more you write, the better the chances of having your music programmed by our editor partners.

If you have any questions, please contact us any time. We look forward to licensing your music!

SPECIAL NOTE!

Please DO NOT arrange any pre-existing melodies (Christmas or otherwise). All tracks are to be 100% original intellectual property
