The deadline for submissions into the 2009 Park City Film Music Festival is next week. I've had six or seven films screen during this festival over the span of the last four years. I had a rather productive 2008 so I wanted to get all the respective directors to submit their films which I score for the festival.
So far, COWBOY SMOKE (2008) by Will Moore, THE BAREFOOT BULL RIDER (2007) by Lisa Almstead, and QUARTER TO NOON by Kat Candler are all for sure going to be submitted. SHOT (2008) by Steven Acevedo and THE DREAMER (2008) by Jeff Guerrero may also as well but haven't committed as of yet.
This is a small festival but one that I'm eager to support. It is the only film festival in America which showcases films based on their music.
Late last night I wrapped up ART-M11 "First Strange Dream" for ARTOIS THE GOAT. In this scene, our lead character has a dream he is wandering aimlessly in his underwear looking for his lost love Angie. Since so much of the rest of the score is classical in nature and all acoustic I decided to adopt a more electronic approach for his dream sequences. Completely abandoning the texture of the whole score. I used a trio of organ sounds that are acoustical in nature but yet contain an element of electronic instruments which set these sequences apart from the rest.
I'm going to bring my wife in early next week to record some solo vocalise tracks which should top it off rather nicely.
On the agenda for today will be ART-M16 "Second Strange Dream" which should be similar to the first dream sequence with just a revised ending and hopefully if I have time, I'll get to ART-M19 "Angie Returns" which is a very short cue utilizing the Virigl/Angie chord progression set up in the dream sequences as Angie actually is reunited with Virgil.
