August 14 - Golden Snail!

Hello, all, and welcome back to my blog. I am very pleased to announce the start of a new project, one that I have wanted to do for a long time. Based on the book of the same name by Graeme Base, "The Legend of the Golden Snail" is a musical journey to the ends of the earth and back again, as wanna-be Grand Enchanter Wilbur searches for the fabled Golden Snailing Ship. The music will be divided into short chunks, with the intention of publishing them all together in a lengthier suite at the end.

The first of the chunks is the prologue, which is the in-story book that Wilbur reads. It details the legend of the snail, and how it was hidden away for hundreds of years and awaits a new master. A simple, magical-sounding horn line and celeste accompaniment underscore the opening exposition. This horn theme will be developed into far larger scope, so stay tuned!

Now for the listening recommendations. Attached is a link to Brian Tyler's relentless action extravaganza "Clutch then Shift" from Eagle Eye. Joining it is a link to James Newton Howard's intoxicatingly gorgeous suite from Maleficent.

That's all for today. Stay tuned for the next post, coming August 21 if all goes to plan!

A Brief Note from Thomas

Hello, everyone, and I hope you're all well this holiday season. You might have noticed that I have been completely radio silent on this blog since the end the summer. I will leave all existing posts
