Hollywood Fantasy Orchestra

The TEC Award is only the latest gem in Hollywood Fantasy Orchestra’s crown: This innovative and completely different orchestra has amassed many accolades throughout the composer community. Hollywood Fantasy Orchestra bridges the gap between orchestral and world instruments – perfect for the next big fantasy epic or medieval tale. It features unique ensembles of world instruments, mixed with modern octave-doubled orchestral sections. Many of the instruments have been recorded in trios, creating a powerful and beautiful sparkling stereo image that cuts through any mix, all captured in stereo with surround sound options to create Dolby Atmos and other surround sound formats, plus all the features of EastWest’s revolutionary Opus software.
