Heavyocity is one of my favorite virtual instrument designers and I always try to stay up-to-date with their latest news and releases. One of the ways I do this is by watching their YouTube series “The Brief,” where they invite two composers to re-score a short clip from a movie, TV show, or trailer. I find it fascinating to hear how different composers interpret the same scene and to learn from the process that the directors go through.
Recently, Heavyocity released the trailer for their new product “Symphonic Destruction” and announced an open contest for composers to re-score the trailer. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to challenge myself and create something orchestral and powerful.
