The Solos are challenging you to create a modern-day trailer track which could be used in an action, sci-fi or superhero movie trailer. The track needs to stand out, needs to be original. Stay away from the obligatory fast percussion and staccato strings, create something which has a lot of tension, a special angle or just simply gives you the goosebumps. Make sure the music builds and has 1 or 2 short pauses for the editor.
They leave the music style and genre up to you. It does not need to be orchestral, anything goes as long as it is powerful and has tension. It does not need to be fast or hard-hitting, even a solo piano or cello can be dramatic. Make the track dynamic, make sure your mix is spot on and picture a trailer when working on the track.
