Star Trek: Spinoff

by @berty38

Liner Notes

Inspired by @florianhoffmann 's beautiful Star Trek theme idea, I decided to try to compose my own Star Trek theme. This would be a lower-budget spinoff of Florian's show, airing only on Paramount Minus, the newest streaming network from Paramount.

I hope it's not too derivative of other Star Trek themes or Florian's theme... (But I hope it's just derivative enough that it sounds like Trek!)

Lyrics

Star Trek through the stars (just kidding)

I love Star Trek, but was not fond of all the sequels. However, I would watch the one on Paramount minus, the theme tune is amazing šŸ™‚

Wow!! I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish. Captures the wonder of space and Star Trek in a song!

Iā€™m so impressed that you did this. It sounds wonderful, and yes, definitely Trek influences.

Like @florianhoffmann 's, this feels totally authentic to me! Right at 46 seconds: that is really awesome and just slightly pushes the envelop for ST music in an entirely appropriate way. Love it.

Well done! šŸ‘ Enjoyed especially the intro and the first motif at 0:14. šŸ˜„ Classical symphonic instrumentation, brass-driven melody, long melodic arcs over eight bars or more, the chord progression mostly major, with some longing minor accents, slow tempo, an overall solemn and uplifting emotion - those are some of the ingredients that I identified as contributing to that typical Trek feeling, and they are all there in your song. Oh, and it's definitely different enough from the rest to be its own thing.

Absolut Trek-like! Really good!

"Paramount Minus", lol. There is a lot of 'Trek' DNA running through this track, I can definitely hear all the distinctive tones/sounds that evoke Trek feelings, I can't even pin down exactly what it is, it just IS! Well done.

nice.

I think you got there (the Courage theme on celli was a nice touch). The use of snares gives this a more martial feel in places, and there are occasional ominous intervals, too. But when the brass comes in after the woodwind section, that's pure Trek.
