This week’s cue comes from a forthcoming puzzle game with a nautical theme. This music accompanies an overhead view of the world map, festooned with treasure-hunting, monsters, and other hallmarks of adventure.
This week’s music comes from the political thriller The F-Zone. To accompany a quietly satisfying moment for the beleaguered protagonists, I took a soaring “adventure” theme from earlier in the movie and rearranged it into a gentle interlude for harp and alto flute. Never forget: composers like recycling.
This week’s selection is a blend of two related cues from my score for the film Home Room. Both passages feature lyrical woodwind solos against strings, harp and piano, creating a mood that I’d describe as cautious hopefulness.
