Question: What do you get when you cross an education in musical composition with a love of Megadeth, Faith No More, and legendary composer, Hans Zimmer?
Answer: Steven Wheeler.
With a limitless passion for all genres of music—including everything from hip-hop to concert band—Steven’s sonic zest has carried his work into the arena of TV (CBS Sports) and video games (Sony).
Now, with an inspiring resume in hand, the young Orlando-based composer (by way of Cape Cod) has released his debut EP, Terminal Velocity, in order to showcase a hard-earned and time-tested skill set. The EP’s third single, The Endless March Of Time, has recently caught our attention.
“…I feel like I finally have the tools and knowledge to actually say something that might be worth hearing apart from the sports and video game worlds.”
Opening with all-encompassing layers of symphonic string tones, the addition of military-esque snares at the :30 mark create a stoic and focused mood. At 2:30, operatic vocals add to an intensely sci-fi vibe. (Think: Flash Gordon.)
Electronic elements engage at 3:30, building slowly toward a killer climactic finish whereby all of the track’s previous sound elements unite in tasteful drama. In the end, this is highly entertaining soundtrack music which one can enjoy—with or without the flick.
