Let’s imagine your future video or animation work. What if this time you are going to create something dynamic and spectacular? Like a tense chase or motor stunts scenes. If so, this playlist is for you.
Today we are talking about action musiс. It is all about specific features aiming to thrill a viewer with powerful shifts. Let’s take a closer look at these features.
The more a track focuses on rhythm, the better feeling of action it gets. The melodic storyline might even be reduced. Why? Because a couple of electronic loops can be more than enough.
Brass and percussion
As for the rhythm, there is always a strong beat. And we have known it since ancient times. Warriors used brass and percussion instruments to convey information in this way. Nowadays, it can be anything from a classic drum kit to controller pads.
But the more music developed, the richer it became. Often action music goes with wind and strings. These instruments enrich a track, making it more powerful.
As the form of high contrasts action needs a dynamic range. Light percussion can turn into bass drums and back. Also, composers like to boost these accents by layering sounds. They appear between different parts of a track to hit the major accents more.
