Like many composers, my career has been directly influenced by Hans Zimmer's work. A defining moment for me was during the showing of Batman Begins in my local theatre. “I want to make music like THAT!” The experience was so remarkable that I transitioned my desire from being a rockstar, to becoming a classical composer. As an homage to that moment in the theatre as it maps onto my current voice, I wrote Stellar Beginning, a fantasia on the theme from Interstellar. All the music was composed, mixed, and mastered by myself except for a short sample of Lasiurus from the Batman Begins Soundtrack, which can be briefly heard at the climax of the piece. Because the Interstellar theme was in the key of A minor, and the sample from Lasiurus was in G minor, deciphering the melodies and orchestration by ear, I rewrote all of the “Interstellar sounds” that occur in this piece using my sample libraries and virtual instruments in order to match the key of the Lasiurus sample.
