No Time for Caution

Free download on SoundCloud.

This music is from one of the more intense scenes of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. The scene is literally known as No Time for Caution. To this day, it gives me chills. Hans Zimmer's entire score for Interstellar is iconic, and this might be the best piece.

The music was definitely not suited for guitar, and I had to parse out the most prominent melodies to make something the builds and crescendos like the original. For stuff like this, I avoid an exact replica. It's best to create an "arrangement" in the truest sense of the word.
