Epic Orchestral/Cinematic Music

Recommended Posts

So I can't recall a thread around here about orchestral music with a cinematic edge. Like trailer music composers and the like. I thought we should have a thread to discuss "epic" kinds of orchestral music and orchestral hybrids, specifically focusing on under-rated composers. We've all heard Two Steps From Hell and Audiomachine in a million commercials and trailers, but there are a lot more people out there making music like this and I'd argue doing it better. 

 

I've been addicted to Ivan Torrent's music since I first discovered it about a year ago. I can't say I've heard his music in any trailers, but I do know he's done a number of sample library demos.

 

 

Well, who and what do you have to share? Any composers who you really think stand out from the rest in this genre?

For sure! I really like Maxim Zhdanov's apocalyptic cinematic music. These are some of my favorite tracks from him:

And Stephen Anderson writes some pretty crazy/emotional stuff, ranging from spirituals to LoTR-like film scores to huge dubstep. The first one below is probably my favorite, but the third one down is a close second.
