For the last couple of months i've been working on a film score for an FTI film "The Short Shrift". Its a creepy little horror set piece about a doll that avenges a certain injustice and is directed by the talented Perth film maker Megan Palinkas. The score comprises of about 8 minutes of original music which was scored for a 6 piece acoustic ensemble of Cello (Tristan Parr), Violin (Zoe Chua), Bass Clarinet (Philip Everall), Percussion (James Chong), Piano (Michael Terren) and Guitar (Renee Capetta). Overall, i'm pretty happy with the resulting recordings and the results of my first paid gig as a film composer, or should I say, the first film scoring gig that actually had a budget. The performers did an excellent job, in spite of my somewhat obtuse scoring methods, and I think that their engagement with the material really reflects in the recordings. Anyway, i've collected some of the material into a single track on my soundcloud account, so check it out if you want to hear some horror-fuelled acoustic chamber ensemble chaos!
