Taxi Music Forward - Orchestral Tension Instrumental Cue

..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film pro that will hear it next."

This one was exceptionally fun to write! I could play guitar all day, but this kind of stuff kind of tickles my inner, I don't know, Hans Zimmer? :)

ORCHESTRAL TENSION INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Library that has just started requesting music from TAXI's members. It’s a good time to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this library. 

They need a bunch of Orchestral-based Tension Cues in a variety of tempos and styles. Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of what they need: 

Reference 1 

Reference 2 

Please send in well-composed Cues that have a distinctly TENSE style and sound and are also stylistically "on point" with the references above. Your instrumentation can be solely Orchestral, or you can utilize a hybrid of other genres combined with Orchestral elements. Be sure to craft your Cues around simple, tension-inducing melodic content while adding new layers of instrumentation as they progress to add dynamics and some forward momentum that builds to a climax. Think of what you'd hear in sports TV Promos, and you'll likely be on the right track! 

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast Quality is needed.
