Here’s a nice bit of atmospheric music set against a backdrop you might find familiar.
I like the tune (are those intro-notes familiar? Sounds like the opening or a trailer for something?), and had to drop a comment in the comments section. He credited Gabriel which is good, but in other cases when Gabriel is actually contacted for use of his images (technically my images since I paid for them), he talks with me about it.
I think for the purposes of YouTube cover thumbnails / images, it doesn’t really matter and I’m happy to call this a trailer for Drednanth and move on. The music is good. There’s no way to really police this stuff unless you’re a giant like Disney, and I think as long as some effort is made, it’s all fine.
I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends.
Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages?
