Busily working away on a couple of vocal pieces that will be premiered at the end of November (more on that soon!), and trying to finalise the mix on a compilation album of cues from various film scores by The Scorelocks Collective… to be released very soon.
Meanwhile, here is a cue from the natural history documentary I co-composed some music for with Chris Lam Sam. This piece was to accompany some footage of waterfalls. Powerful and majestic. It was a fun project to work on.
This is my first major post for 2013. I have been busily working away in the studio crafting some new music for my PhD… lots of notes on paper, and sounds in the machine – but it is slowly coming together!
But, as a treat for 2013, I want to present to you a film that I helped make in 2009. The film is called “They No Longer Sleep Alone” – it is a short feature (46mins) filmed in and around Hamilton, NZ. The film is essentially silent, but accompanied by the music from a synth-pop concept album that I recorded and released as a band ‘…howard’ with collaborator Thomas Botting. The narrative from the songs is played out in moving images on the screen.
The whole thing (songs, recording and film) were all put together independently (by Chasing Time Productions and myself) with very!! minimal budget… and I think we have come up with a fun little film.
