The Music behind the Trailer

Through the course of our campaign, many people have asked about the music used in the video trailer on the kickstarter page, questions like where we found it, and where it can be purchased/downloaded.

The music heard in the trailer is an original composition titled "Legacy of Tradition" and was composed by our cinematographer/composer/editor Ryo Shiina (The inspiration fo this piece came from the Apache Marching Band's 2011 field show production, titled "Power & Grace". Just as how the show started, the piece begins with the subtle introduction of Tchaikovsky's melody from Swan Lake. After a rousing chorus that captures the excitement felt by everyone who has ever seen the red A's coming down the street. The piece then returns to a place of calmness and concludes with a sprinkle of nostalgia with strands from the school Alma Mater.

As a token of our appreciation for everything you have done for this project, we are releasing official recording of "Legacy of Tradition" available here for download absolutely FREE!
