Variations on a theme

Here is the first variation for the ORBITOR main theme music. The idea is to maintain a few very recognisable themes/motifs throughout the game. I've decided to keep the initial versions fairly short so I can get through as many variations as possible and have a large list to choose from and expand upon later.

I have to say I'm really enjoying the whole movie trailer style of music I've chosen for the core of the game's score. I'm having a lot of fun trying to nail that "inspirational" vibe that crafty trailer makers use to invoke emotions in a very short period. It's easy to get inspiration to write it that's for sure. There are so many trailers out there that use the kind of uplifting, motivational feel I'm going for. It's also used on a lot of "greatest moments in life" mashups/montages on tv, particularly for sport.
