Nu-metal Trailer Music
I'm working on some music for trailers for the US market. This '3 act' style is apparently popular at the moment.
The track should be no more than 2:30 and be written in three sections.
Act 1 - Set the mood. Light, atmospheric possibly eerie.
Act 2 - Add some energy. Drop in some stuttering, fast and high percussive elements and the occasional explosive drum hit.
Act 3 - Pedal to the metal. Driving rhythm with a build to a climactic ending.
Here's one I baked earlier.
