DARK AMBIENT SHORT CUES

We are currently searching for short DARK AMBIENT cues.

The idea of these cues is to create foreboding, ominous, or discordant overtones.

Cues must have clear ‘beginning, middle and end’ sections. They must tell a ‘story’. The 'Three Act Structure'.
Setup, confrontation and resolution.

Feelings of solitude, melancholy, confinement and isolation are key.

DARK AMBIENT encompasses a wide variety of sub-genres. Organic, synthesizer based or a combination of both are requested.


Production and composition quality must match references at a minimum. Broadcast ready.

Track lengths: 1:30 minimum to 4  minutes.

TRAILER MUSIC BRIEFS

Hybrid Action
 

Intense, kinetic, dramatic cues that have superhero themes.

Any type of instrumentation can work, but the last section should include strings and brass. Arpeggios and Blade Runner type analogue synth sounds are a huge plus!

 

The key to these cues are the intense heart breaking themes and the way the theme changes tone.
 

The theme has to have a melancholy to it that feels small and sad when played softly but grows into an anthemic call to action when played with gusto.
 

The sadder it feels at the beginning, the bigger it feels when you get to the third act.

Production and composition quality must match references at a minimum. Broadcast ready.

Sound design elements punctuate the cue as accents and fills.

Slow Burn Sound Design
 

Slowly building cues that create tension, suspense and intrigue.

Tonnes of space.
