Knights and Film Music
The Knight is an elite warrior sworn to uphold the values of courage and honour.
Knighthood was characterized by two elements, feudalism and service as a mounted combatant. Both arose under the reign of the Frankish emperor Charlemagne, from which the knighthood of the Middle Ages can be seen to have had its genesis.
Knights were trained in hunting, fighting, and riding. They were also trained to practise courteous, honorable behaviour, which was extremely important.
This behaviour was a Code of Honour, made of solemn oaths, like to protect the people and to live by honour and for glory.
Danger was part of a Knight’s life, and you can feel dangerous surroundings in this orchestral demo.
Part of the track is from the music soundtrack I’m composing and producing for the Nintendo DS videogame Baalzebul. It is an innovative fantasy role play game. The first playable demo will be completed soon.
