Spent the better part of a day composing this short track, partly inspired by Interstellar. This is my first foray into Hybrid Trailer Music with electronic influences.

P.S: Mixed for speakers. Particularly the Sennheiser HD201

Are those drums from East west? they sound nice

Grandvision responds:

Yes "Big Hits" from Stormdrum. Sweep ins with a drum hit at the end are from "Audio Imperia Dystopian Dreams Vol.2 Dark Moon Rising" Sample pack is "HIT RIPS DESIGNED"

Sounding great! A couple of tips.

Remember your main reason for the rule of thirds in trailers. Your 1st third is intro, your 2nd should sound like a strong climax but hold back, and your third part should be the actual climax. Remember to keep ramping it up every time. Something like choirs, stronger percussion, massive hits at the start of each bar will really own this part.

Don't be afraid to drive it with strong percussion, especially at the start of every main loop around of the theme. You nailed the simple theme, which is one of the keys for trailers these days, however the challenge is to keep it memorable, so make sure the melody resonates with someone after they turn the track off.

Create massive visual moments in your track, and hammer those big hits covering all frequencies which would fill up the cinema. Treat it like you have Main and secondary percussion. Your secondary will continue throughout where as your main will be those massive strikes that fill the room.

Keep well mate! :)

Grandvision responds:

Aaaah thank you so much <3 Peter, this is such useful information, I wish I knew this sooner. I am going to improve on this track today and see what I can do.
