The Elder Scrolls Main Theme
by Jeremy Soule
As some of you may know, I am a freelance composer for video games and am pursuing it as my career. I have always loved video game scores (they really do rival some of the music written for the big screen, people!), and The Elder Scrolls has always been one of my favorite game series (yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am a closet game-nerd). The only thing more enjoyable than the games themselves are the wonderful scores written by composer Jeremy Soule. I have been a HUGE Soule fan for years and with the release of his new score for Skyrim, decided to put this up as a little homage to one of my favorite game composers. The theme, in how it is represented here, is essentially Nerevar Rising from Morrowind, but it appears in every Elder Scrolls game after that. I really have always loved this theme and very much enjoyed recording it.... I ended with a little tribute to Ravel (he ends a piece for tenor and piano with a similar chord voicing that I use here).
