This album is designed for trailer use. It is performed with multiple drum sets and hand percussion, while also using modern trailer elements to achieve a massive and exciting sound.

We’ve seen countless trailers using epic, cinematic drums. We would like to achieve that effect with a new, contained, and organic sound. By using more familiar percussion sounds, it opens up more possibilities for licensing these tracks.



The Challenge:
How do you make an album versatile and emotional without melody or chords?

• Different players. Feel is everything when it comes to drums. Each new drummer brings a different personality to each track.

Why choose this album over the thousands of other production albums?

• Because it’s beat-driven. Having beat-driven music is a breath of fresh air for every video editor. When you combine cues that are easy to follow with large dynamics and well-written form, the possibilities are endless.

What content would work for an album like this?

• Since it’s only drums, it’s incredibly versatile. This album steps away from the giant drum line of epic war drums that we’ve heard hundreds of times before. By leaning towards more intimate and organic drum sounds, it creates more options for licensing. Tracks can still be used for intense action, but could also be used in smaller, quirkier content.

Because these tracks consist of mostly drums and hits, cues are very easy to edit picture to. These songs are broken up into thirds building in intensity. Pieces of a track can easily be mixed and matched with other trailer music and sound design.
