In terms of the structure of Zion, you will have noticed its classic trailer music structure of intro, middle, and end section: “When writing, I tend to not overthink or plan too much, I just write. It should just be epic, massive, and very good to be licensed with a clear sound and idea. Important for such tracks is the clear separation of the different parts through sound design elements. For example, from second 28, the intro is separated from the middle part with a drop-down, which then turns into a riser. Here, I actually just reversed the same dropdown. From second 44, the middle part is separated again by complete silence to the end of the track. Such points are very good for editors, as these have perfect edit points for video ideas. From 1:06 on, begins the so-called C-part, here I combine a riser with different hits and long reverb braams which I have designed. The C-part is often used at the end of a trailer or TV spot and should be very well and simply structured. It consists of very few elements.
