An Epic in 7/8

Share Download this song

Author Comments


Here is a little experiment of mine that I am rather proud of. The goal was to write a trailer-music-esque piece of music in 7/8 whilst incorporating electronic elements and tricksy dynamics and phrases. For instance, when the marcato strings first come in, the piece switches to a 14/8 feel, and the build into the second section of the piece is a simultaneous crescendo and diminuendo. See if you can figure out how. ;-)


And did I succeed in my endeavor?

I put this under Video Game, cause I don't know what else it should go under. :-(

Trés bien

Second piece of yours that I've listened to today. Not terribly surprised that this is made of win.

TheBenjerman responds:

Made of WIN!

muah ha ha.

Many thanks, glad you like it!


Probably one of my favorite pieces on NG. It starts off with a simple, but beautiful little phrase and builds until the end with dark strings and an epic electronic choir. I tried to make a remix of this song but it sounded like crap. Really amazing. If I ever make the flash movie that I intend to, I would like to put this song in there.

TheBenjerman responds:

I am honored, good sir! Glad you like it! :)

A masterpiece.

The song is amazing to begin with, but when it picks up, it becomes and awe-inspiring piece of audio awesomeness. While true, I wish there would have been a bit more of the fast, powerful part, the song is still fantastic. I would love it if you had just kept it fast a little longer (God, that part is epic.) and ended it the way you did.

TheBenjerman responds:

Oh man! Thank you for the excellent review!

And I appreciate you appreciating my piece's epicness. I suppose I should have made the whole thing longer, and there's always next time... ;-)

Sky Fotress

A simple island, with one tree floats in the sky. A man, leaning on its bark, smokes a cigar while staring over the horizon, at a giant fortress that consumes the clouds. He hops on his eagle, and begins to fly towards it. The air whizzes by him. He concentrates purely on this structure and jumps, flying through the sir and landing on a small metal platform, from which he kicks a guard off the platform and steals his gun.

With gun in hand, he clutches against the metal wall. He waits. He listens. Footsteps are heard. He closes his eyes. Seconds later, a guard is taken aside, his neck broken, and his body thrown into the white abyss below. The man sneaks up marble stairs, through dark, electronic hallways, over air duct systems, and past every single bit of security.

He arrives at a chamber, holding one single man in a wheelchair, hooked up to some sort of breathing machine. The old man watches as this black figure approaches him, and his life is taken.

One hour later, it is realized that the emperor has been murdered, and one man sits against one tree on a small island.

TheBenjerman responds:

Thanks for reviewing again!

Nice story, especially since I pictured something completely different. It's always nice to get other people's views, but I can totally see where you are coming from.



i know ur a movie score writer, i just know it somehow

TheBenjerman responds:

Lolz. Do you really?

My secret is out.
