MOVIE SCORES – FANTASY EZKEYS MIDI
Intrepid voyages to the ends of the earth, intergalactic explorations to the chartless voids of space, encounters with mythical creatures and everything in between and beyond – the fantasy movie genre is as limitless as its name suggests. As far as the music goes, unavoidably, it needs to be able to trigger every facet of our sensory spectra – from the chilling and devastatingly haunting to the magical, uplifting and euphorically triumphant.
This EZkeys MIDI pack was created with all that in mind. If you’re looking for complex, rhythmic and utterly transformative motifs to use as springboards for grand song themes, tidbits to tell stories with or just need a pool of new musical narratives to get your inspiration going, this is it.
When imagination is the only limitation, turning fantasy into musical reality is at your fingertips. Here’s to a great start. On to creating!
Piano/keyboard MIDI inspired by scenes, themes and soundtracks in the fantasy movie genre
3/4, 4/4 and 5/4 playing variations in straight feel with tempos ranging from 65 BPM to 131 BPM
Intro, main theme, bridge and outro sections
Performed by professional session player
In a genre where atmosphere, feel and dynamics run like arteries through every arrangement, the groove is monumental. In fact, it’s the lifeblood present in the fabric of its DNA and, when played right, it can be the pivot around which an entire song revolves. In this MIDI pack for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer, Thomas Hedlund boils down his years behind the kit of Swedish post-metal veterans Cult of Luna to a collection of MIDI that, just like the genre itself, draws from an amalgam of styles. Expect a highly versatile collection of drum MIDI for slow, atmospheric and groove-centric songs applicable far beyond what you’d casually file under “metal.”
This is a MIDI pack where a fearless blend of styles and a no-rules-apply logic come head to head with convention and, yet again, proves why Thomas Hedlund is one of the most dynamic and inventive drummers on the scene.
Works with EZdrummer, EZdrummer 2, EZdrummer 3, Superior Drummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3.
