Cue of the Week: “The Treehouse”

This is one of my favorite cues from the Against Time score, so I was a bit surprised to find that I’d never featured it in this journal.  Without further ado, enjoy the alternately warm, bucolic, ominous, and comedic musical expressions of the Budapest Film Orchestra.

Cue of the Week: “Kate’s Theme”

I’m posting something a little different this week; rather than a film or game cue, this is a short self-contained piece for solo piano. It was commissioned by a friend as a holiday present for a friend of his own.

As a bonus for you pianists out there, the sheet music for the piece can be found here.  (That last word is actually a link; this blog’s current color scheme may hide the fact on your browser.)  Feel free to download it or share it.

Cue of the Week: “Vanguard Forward”

I’ve been away for most of the summer, but as of today the Cue of the Week feature is happily back online.

Please enjoy this week’s music selection, meant to evoke the pitter-pattering of little armored divisions.  The style is a blend between a traditional go-for-gusto orchestral sound with french horns a-blaring, and a more contemporary use of sampled drums and folk instrumentation.

Cue of the Week: “Military Victory”

Continuing last week’s belated-fourth-of-July theme, here’s another militaristic anthem for your enjoyment. True, the music in question is supposed to celebrate German military victory in the late 19th century… but we at MikeMusicRadio are equal-opportunity revelers.
