This is the first update on scoring “The Winde”. Since I am almost halfway through the composing process I can share some light on the score. I intend to blog about the progress, maybe share some photos and videos from the recording sessions later on 😉
As you may know, “The Winde” is a short film, and I am writing a regular 40 minutes score. There is a couple of reasons for that – firstly, I felt really inspired by the script, the characters and the world of “The Winde” and I think that 10 or even 20 minutes of music is not enough to present all the important concepts and ideas in Gavin`s story (such as the role of nature, hunt for the wolf as a rite of passage and so on). To tell you the truth, I haven`t been so inspired in quite some time… The second reason is that I wanted to challenge myself, write another full length score and feel the thrill of creating a “musical world” (that is what this is all about, right ?).

At the moment I have got all the themes written down along with the cues for the movie. That`s about 20 minutes of music + I have got around 10 minutes of smaller cues, ideas and sketches. I plan to finish the writing process by June 10th (with a short break for the Krakow Film Music Festival), so I can book the studio and start recording the soloists later in June. Then the hard part comes, since I will be mixing and editing all the material by myself…
Anyway, writing the score for “The Winde” has been an amazing experience so far, probably because of how much freedom I have regarding the mood and vibe of the music… besides, who doesn`t like to write an adventure score with celtic and world music elements in it ? Well, I do 😉
I should get back to work now 🙂 Stay tuned for more updates.
