That's what I set to achieve when I started to work on what I called 'Moonlight Nocturne I'. It was an entire track on the piano with an orchestral undertone. It was supposed to provide the background for the scene where the protagonist and his love interest are under the moon gazing up at the stars.
Below: A nocturne by Chopin. The guy was a genius. His nocturnes always inspire me to write songs about the night.
Another track with classical influences in the score was of an intense, ambient nature with the piano being played extremely low, in fact so low there was a certain ring that accompanied it after it went through some customised processing, which even though being purely accidental at first seemed to fit the mood quite perfectly. Otherwise the track didn't have much of anything else except an ambience that reminded me of the claustrophobic feeling one experiences inside an elevator and uncannily reminded me of 'The Shining'.
Time to go on a Stanley Kubrick marathon again. Woooo.
