Without further adieu the theme of Round #13 of Season Two is:

Chase Scene Music

Building off the emotional Ray of Sunshine theme, we have another emotion-laden theme for the #beatbattle.

That classic chase schene music.

Whether it be a car chase, characters running after one another, or any other countless options, chase scene music plays such a huge role in movies, TV, and other media because of how it can create such emotion and build suspense.

Some instruments from the orchestra? O that will create some emotion. High pace segments of a beat? That will cause some emotion.

We all know how powerful music is. A certain sound, beat, and/or song can bring suspense to the listener and reierate that chase scene but in vocal form.

Different sounds create different emotion for different people so interested to see what sounds, instruments, and arrangements are used in creating beats that can be used in chase scenes.

However this Chase Scene Music theme means to you let's hear it o weeeeeeee.

Looking forward to hearing the creations from the incredible producers in the Steemit Universe.
