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!

It's......ok

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...

Interesting.

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!
