Round 2 - 5th International Film Music Competition

My second year doing the International Film Music Competition, this time with a film that had a story that I really liked, with overarching themes, and therefore helped with the writing processes a good deal.

This film follows a rock through various transitions from a mountain all the way down to a grain of sand, and then back again. I created two themes/motifs in this score: one for the rock that I change and twist around based on his transformations that he's undergone, and another for the idea of change itself; everytime he changes, is about to change, or has changed.

I also again had the privilege of being able to record the score with whom I believe are some of the best musicians around. What you're about to hear is from the 10 minutes of music that was recorded live within one hour! (which is almsot unheard of, Hollywood usually records around 3 minutes/hour)

I wasn't really sure what to expect given the difficulty of the music in some parts, but they were on top of it! They were also very patient when we had technical difficulties and helped with set up and break down. I feel very lucky to live in an area where such quality people exist, and it is experiences such as these that keep me motivated and inspired in film scoring.
