Following Triumph, Nu Epiq is the fourth opus from the famous Trailerhead series, successfully launched in 2008 and “devoted to the power and emotion of epic orchestral music”.
With Nu Epiq, Immediate’s goal is to “evolve the sound of modern epic music, taking the genre in new musical directions and elevating the art form to new creative heights.” The result is innovative, and takes the form of a breathtaking musical journey, where the word “epic” is almost a euphemism.
Immediate Music defines epic music as a contemporary genre whose form may vary, “ranging from anthemic orchestral soundtracks to symphonic rock, contemporary classical, and power pop”, and “unified by the incorporation of real orchestra and choir recorded in some of the best sounding halls and studios in the world”. The substance of the epic genre, however, remains constant – “while spanning a variety of styles”, it “shares similar emotional values”.
“Music is a sacred trust. To create or to be moved by its power is… epic”
– Jeffrey Fayman
