Sail with buccaneers and descend into dragons’ lairs, traverse Egyptian deserts and Amazonian jungles, be moved to tears and stirred to action. From composer Benjamin Botkin comes SAGA, a new album of musical pieces in the rich tradition of orchestral cinematic music. Enjoy a musical tapestry that offers a diversity of flavors, from epic chorales and ethnic atmospheres to soaring string melodies and symphonic majesty. (SPECIFICATIONS: 20 tracks, approx 44 mins, 320kbps MP3 files)
“Benjamin Botkin’s SAGA is a wonderful introduction to the fruits that emerge when God-given musical talent and cutting edge composition software collide with a rich understanding of some of the greatest film composers. Ben’s original melodies are beautiful, memorable, and are interwoven into a wide variety of musical genres with a full orchestra sound. I’m sure this is only the appetizer of many audio feasts to come.” – Stephen Kendrick, co-writer and producer of films Courageous, Fireproof, Facing the Giants
