Composing for films uses a completely different set of brain muscles than anything else. The composer's job is to underscore the film with the characters<br />
and plot development at the forefront of the image. Sometimes the music needs to be squashed, edited and basically jerked around to fit the scheme of things.<br />
When music that was specifically written for a visual stands on it own, it may not possess all the elements that a non-visual composition would normally have. Massive dynamic swings and tempo changes followed by abrupt stops and lack of conventional song form continuity are some of the aspects of film music. It’s not uncommon for the producers to take the main themes and make tidy little accessible tracks out of them for the soundtrack release. We have a few of those here, too.<br />
In The Elusive Light And Sound, Vol 1, you get to hear all the cues and soundtrack cuts that I have composed for films, up to June 20, 1998, even the short little non-sensical splatters that hardly even stack up.<br />
Some of these cues and soundtracks never appeared in their designated movie. The films inspired me to write them. They are all here for your archiving pleasure.<br />
