A couple of weeks ago I sat in a room with a group of people to compose and record the soundtrack/score for the film Penny Black.
The people involved:
– Nick Granville: Guitar
– Nick Tipping: Bass
-Jeremy Badger: Drums
– Chris Lam Sam: Keys and percussion
– Adam Page: sax/flute
– Ben Mannell: Tech setup and recording
– Joe Hitchcock: Director
– Fiona Jackson: Producer
– Dan Inglis: Photographer
– myself: keys/electronics
The process involved watching the film scene by scene, discussing grooves, hitpoints ideas etc, jamming out some material, and then recording. A very refreshing and creatively invigorating experience!
Have a listen to a sneak peek of some of the tracks here!
