Today's cue is from The Amazing Race 15 (2009), and accompanies teams as they arrive in Cambodia (hence the name). The goal here was to convey the intensity of the arrival, without the usual predominance of staccato orchestral elements. Hence the long-note melody over the top of a rhythmic figure that is somewhat more subdued than usual for an “arrival” cue.

By the way—for more nerdy talk about film music, check out the soon-to-premiere podcast Inside the Score. I’m teaming up with filmmaker Ryan Johnson for a series of in-depth discussions of various film-music and filmmaking topics. There will be a big launch announcement to come in the next few weeks, but for now you can check out the site, and read up on some of the special features and added extras while we put the finishing touches on the first few episodes. Stay tuned, and have a great week!
