Trailers are usually composed of 3 or 4 parts for about 2 1/2 minutes. It could start with a slow introduction (that can be non-musical), followed by a more sonorous development. Then a much more agressive part comes in with hits and wooshes. You can have a break there. And an epic accelerating ending that ends up hanging or back to the initial mood. Though sometimes, these rules don't apply at all, which makes trailer-music so interesting to make...


Les trailers sont généralement composés de 3 ou 4 parties pour une durée habituelle de 2.30 minutes. Une introduction lente (parfois non-musicale), un développement léger mais plus sonore, un second développement cette fois très agressif. Parfois ensuite un arrêt et retour au calme initial. Puis une fin tonitruante qui s'achève dans le vide ou sur un retour au calme initial. Parfois aussi on peut oublier toutes ces règles. C'est ce qui rend la musique de Trailer si intéressante à faire.
