Decided to tackle this one while on road. Had to write and mix all on Bose headphones w/little Mac speakers for reference. I didn't even hook up a keyboard but used my MacBook Pro keys! Only Had Logic with me so couldn't do fancier drums lol
Thanks Taxi for the challenge and the chance for a forward! ... ental-cues

A RANGE OF INVESTIGATIVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES is needed by an expanding International Music Library that needs lots of new music!They’re searching for dramatic, suspenseful Instrumental Cues that could work in a variety of Crime-based scenes. Please listen to the following references to get an idea of what could work for this pitch:

Fatal Attraction (1:10 - 2:10)

Crime Watch (0:00 - 0:39)

Please submit well-composed Instrumental Cues that could support a variety of investigative scenes and scenarios. Your pieces can include Electronic and/or Orchestral Instrumentation, or a hybrid of both. Build your Cues around a central, tension-inducing melody that will sit easily behind a scene’s dialogue, and add new elements as it progresses to create a sense of forward movement and development. You’d be smart to keep your Cue on the simple side, as this pitch is all about setting an Investigative mood!

NOTE: Your Instrumental Cues can cover a wide range of Crime Show styles, from what you'd hear during a tense manhunt, to the type of cues that would support detectives searching for clues in the field, to scenes in the lab, etc. Provide the aural backdrop for those Investigative, crime-show scenes where John Q. Law stops the bad guys!

Your submissions should be about 90 seconds long (give or take). If you go a little long, don’t sweat it! Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.
