2FM030 Orchestral Hybrids: Tension, Reflection & Drama

Posted on Dec 23, 2017

2FM030 Orchestral Hybrids: Tension, Reflection & Drama is a diverse collection of underscore tracks using a hybrid of orchestra and synths. Cold, ethereal and introspective, the album feels mysterious and desolate, but sometimes breaks through into more raw and heart-rending emotions from the live orchestra. From the moody “Dark Industry” and tragic “Mists of Grief” to the unnerving “Inconvenient Truth”, this music will set dramas on edge without overwhelming the action. The album’s hybrid nature means that all tracks have versions with different balances of orchestra and electronics, allowing you to tailor the music to your needs without losing the feel of the original track. Stems are also available for further customisation. All tracks on the album are well-suited to dramas, from crime and medical to emotional human dramas. Tracks such as “Solving the Enigma” will also pair well with investigative documentaries to create an atmosphere of mystery and intrigue. Additionally, the productive, motivational tracks such as “Hopeful Energy” are appropriate for corporate use. These evocative and atmospheric tracks will help bring focus to tense scenes and important plot points.
