Forward >> DARK DYSTOPIAN CHRISTMAS INSTRUMENTAL

Post by steveprobst » Tue Dec 07, 2021 9:34 am



ORIGINAL DARK, DYSTOPIAN CHRISTMAS INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Library that’s always hustling and landing placements for TAXI members in TV Shows, Film projects, and Movie Trailers!

This Library is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Snow Wonders" by Myuu

"Carol of the Bells" by Lucas King

Please submit original, well-composed Christmas Instrumental Cues that have a dark, dystopian sound and vibe. Craft your Cues around an eerie motif, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. We think Orchestral or Orchestral Hybrid instrumentation with Christmas-y accents like glockenspiel, jingle bells, tubular bells, etc. will be the best approach for this request. Please be sure your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality, polished, and modern. If your Cues could put a chill down the listener's spine send them in!

All submissions should be about 60 to 90 seconds long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/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.

Oh well - live & learn ...

Thanks everyone!

Paul, I was thinking MINE might not be dark enough. Maybe it just squeaked by?
One thing is I didn't second guess it too much, just went with the idea I had going and had fun with it.
