This is a very lush and emotional orchestral theme ideal for a film or tv show. Starts off with a bright, innocent and childlike mood and builds to a larger orchestral sound. Can work well as opening title music or ending credits music. There are high and low points emotionally that the piano and orchestra combination hit throughout the track, as well as other dramatic moments.

Some compositional notes:
Nothing too complicated here musically; The use of the bVII chord helps modulate to the key of the b^3 halfway through the piece. If you've noticed I tried to personify certain elements from this very simple titles sequence such as the "noodling" hands and the clock which keeps coming into view. If you listen or look at the music you'll notice some VERY odd time signature and meter changes. This is to make sure the music syncs perfectly with what's going on in the picture. This is the true art of composing music for film. Other than that, standard diatonicism with sparse use of 7th chords and heavy use of diatonic tensions such as ^2 and ^4 help create a contemporary "Hollywood" sound.

This is more of a sketch, I'll have to work on the full score soon as it will be recorded live for a new film scoring job I just got.

This composition is just amazing, it is VERY musical, dynamic and really sets the mood. The musical textures you create are very fitting for the mood you were trying to create, and overall there is a lot of that innocent/naive character you were aiming for that was done very effectively and beautifully. Great mix too! I always love your work, hope to see more soon!
