Chris Field Film Trailers
Chris Field's talents for symphonic orchestration have made him one of today's forerunners in cinematic, new age, and world music. After completing his highly acclaimed "Gothic Power" piece for the trailer of Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings," Chris returns with "Sub-Conscious," a full-length album.
Sub-Conscious reveals the essence of Chris Field film trailer scores and his unique musical style. On this new release, Chris places the focus on the beautiful purity of his rich piano and string arrangements. He artfully combines that with other instruments like the cello, classical guitar, and a rich layering of vocal accompaniment. The result is a masterpiece of powerful and dreamy auditory sound.
It's no wonder Chris Field film trailer music has generated a dedicated fan base. There is simplicity in his music, and at the same time it is rich and complex. It's difficult to guess where Chris gets his ideas. On some tracks, it seems as if the piano is the basis for inspiration; on others, synthesizers and vocal arrangements serve as the base instruments.
On Sub-Conscious, it seems as if a number of songs are loosely based on the power of the mind, creating intimacy between synthesizer / piano and voice and strings, classical guitar and powerful percussive beats. His melodies are strong and compelling, and evoke a lovely setting to where the listener is drawn. At times cold and remote, and at times warm and heartfelt, Chris Field film trailer music is sensitive and his orchestrations exacting.
