I composed this piece as alternate music for one of the trailers to the movie Troy (2004, dir. Wolfgang Petersen), starring Brad Pitt in the role of Achilles. It tracks the trailer pretty well, stays under the dialog at the beginning, and gradually builds to the battle clips near the end of the trailer. The various composition and orchestration techniques employed may serve as a topic to be discussed in a later presentation. For now, here is the music alone – no dialog or movie sound effects – along with several slides I found on flickr, all creative commons licensed, with mods and commercial use allowed. Thank you for watching, and listening! – Mark Priest
