Into the Dark

This used to be the title theme for the computer version of "Descent: Journeys in the Dark" by Board Games Online. The project eventually ran into trouble and was cancelled, and Board Games Online later became bankrupt. I bought back the rights to the music involved in the project, and am now releasing it for free online.

Title themes is something I haven't done a whole lot of, so this track was a real challenge. It needed climatic sections, and they had to appear relatively early in the song, perhaps returning later. The melody had to be fetching and easy to remember. The orchestral elements had to work together well, not only by using strings (an easy habit to fall into) but by supplementing them with woodwinds, brass and percussion.

I feel the tracked worked out well.
