Dracula: Heroic Theme

Share Download this song

Author Comments

The Dracula Suite was a 45 minute piece of piano music written to accompany a condensed stage adaptation of the Dracula story. I am gradually scoring it for orchestra and this is the first section I've completed - Van Helsing's Theme.

I'm not a very experienced orchestral arranger, so would value any feedback. Inspiration for the scoring came from Holst's "Mars, Bringer of War", if you're wondering.

If any animators are interested in producing a Flash animation of the Dracula story with my music, PM me.

The piece was scored using Sibelius 5 and samples used are from the Garritan Personal Orchestra.

EDITED TO ADD: I've just listened to this through a pair of crappy speakers and the bass wasn't audible at all. Maybe I need to put the volume on it up a bit but if you can't hear a constant march-like bass (bit like the Star Wars Empire march) you need better speakers!

This actually would make it big in runescape... maybe at the end of a quest or something...im not a nerd or anything but i think this might be good for it...

awesome song!


Interesting, but it reminds me of the MMORPG Runescapes music. Maybe you should get your music on that game.

Gerontius responds:

Hmm, that's weird. I had someone else tell me it sounded like Zelda. I've never played either of those games, though. Maybe I do need to get into the computer game biz...


You don't see many Dracula fans any more. well, i found it short but good. you know your stuff.

Gerontius responds:

Thanks. Plenty of Dracula fans near me - but now they're all waiting for me to finish my Zombie musical...

It's short becuase it's just the theme for a single character. I'm hoping to develop my skills working on these shorter themes before I tackle orchestrating a longer section that brings some of those themes together. Watch this space!
