This was a really fun one. A friend of mine has written a young adult adventure novel series, called 'Oracle'.
After reading the introductory chapter to 'Sunken Earth' (the first book in the series), I decided to make a soundtrack for it.
I thought of it like a real movie, including what kind of themes each character would have. In this opening chapter there are several different scenes and characters. I tried to capture each character's theme and the intensity of the situation through the music. I felt like John Williams doing this, and had a great time. Below is a little visual I put together with the music to show how I envisioned the story to line up with the music.
