Cut

music16

I just scored a short film for a director out of San Diego.  The film is called “Cut,” it’s a 7 minute film that had almost no dialogue.  I don’t want to give too much of the film away (since I haven’t talked to the director about it), but it’s a dark piece.

I needed something that had an element of the Portishead song “Over” mixed with orchestral elements.  I used a solo violin and a solo soprano over the top as the cue builds (it’s just over 7 minutes long) to the climax at the end.  I did something different in that I doubled the percussion with a piano chord that I hit a little harder as the song went on, until it was pounding at the end of the track.

I’m posting it here as an mp3 for now, I’ve got to cut a shorter version for my demo.  If you’ve got 7 minutes to spare, listen away.
