As Independence Day is approaching for those of us in the USA, something patriotic seems to be in order. Rather than post a music cue with brassy oomph and snare drums (which I do frequently anyway), here’s something with a triumphant but more understated mood. This cue for strings and solo woodwinds – written when I was a swaddling composer of about twenty four – accompanies the final scene of the film The F-Zone. Given that the film concerns escape from tax abuse, its music seems appropriate for this particular holiday.
The music starts with a moody tone, then eventually flourishes into a more affirmative mood. Happy (impending) Fourth!
