Out now: Goldfall

Yet another “new release” post? Not at all. This is really special and if you’re into orchestral, melodic, romantic filmmusic, you should definitely give this a listen.

After lots of drama, Batman is up for a fight. Let’s get into Goldsmith-mode, shall we? Listen and read along!     The music starts with the prison guards approaching.
