Writing Music: Colours of Love19:37
I love discovering musicians whose music is all suitable for writing to, no matter what piece you’re listening to. Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of music by Two Steps From Hell, which is just like this. They have some of the best songs I’ve ever found for writing to. It has the emotions and moods of a movie soundtrack, very few lyrics, and an epic, compelling sound all of its own. I recently shared my thoughts on their piece Cannon in D, and today I wanted to share another of their pieces that I’ve been listening to on repeat, Colours of Love.
Colours of Love starts quite moderately enough, but quickly swells into a full bodie, almost triumphant sound. It feels a bit like a celebration at some points, like that feeling after the final battle is won and everyone’s getting their medals Star Wars style. It is generally very upbeat, with a rousing choral section in the middle, which has no recognisable lyrics (at least in English). It would suit a scene of celebration, large or small, or, as the title suggests, possibly a scene where love is discovered.
What is your go-to music for writing? What sort of a scene do you think this piece suits? Have you checked out Two Steps From Hell before? What have you been listening to this week? Recommend me some music!
