Michael Nyman

Review

Michael Nyman -- most famous for composing the score for The Piano -- comes up with a string-heavy score that can be quite evocative. It is difficult to describe exactly what emotion the music seems to evoke the most, but it has a spine tingling kind of deepness to it that makes it perfect for added a hint of tension.

The tracks are short enough that it would be possible to use them for events or descriptions, but the score seems to be better suited for background music. Science fiction or fantasy campaigns would be just as applicable.
