You don't have to read the following if you don't want to, it's just the overall story of making this video and how important it was to me to make it if not for myself then for everyone.
In 2006, I had read all of the "His Dark Materials" books by Philip Pullman. At that time I did not know a movie was in the works. The next year, the trailer for the film "The Golden Compass" (first of the trilogy) was in movie theaters, and I knew almost instantly that it was Golden Compass in that trailer. Albeit being disappointed by the movie's abrupt end, I was immensely fascinated by the concept of Trailer Music. Specifically the music featured in that trailer I mentioned earlier. Something about that music awoke something in me, and I guess that's what launched my interest into instrumental music.
In 2008, I tried to emulate the music of that trailer, but I could not find the sources because I had not looked hard enough. I had the first two tracks (Mars, The Planets Suite; and The Great Eatlon, Lady in the Water), but the third one eluded me.
In 2012 (the year I made this) I accidentally came upon the final piece, a Future World Music track called To The Rescue, and it was exactly what I needed. I remembered all my fruitless attempts four years previously, and set to work making this compilation.
Finding out that no one has made something like this on YouTube, I took the chance and uploaded it myself. After 5 years, I finally am able to listen to the piece that drove me to epic trailer music in the first place. Thank you, various composers.
