George Frideric Handel's Sarabande from the keyboard suite in D minor, HWV 437 (nomenclature not to be confused with German cars). It was dance music 300 years ago from what I understand. Stanley Kubrick used it in the Barry Lyndon soundtrack, and I'm trying to do it more in a ""switched on" Clockwork Orangish style. Brian de Palma also used it in Redacted.

Doing it over and over since 2 days and can't seem to avoid mistakes for 3 minutes. It's driving me nuts, I think I will reincarnate into a parrot, or a squirrel.

The instrument is a Clavia Nord Stage 2, simulating a B3 Hammond organ with rotary speaker and some overdrive, a French harpsichord, Eminent 310 strings/pads (made famous by Jean-Michel Jarre) with wah effect, and a church organ for the reprise at the end.

Michel Ciment: You also cheated in another way by having Leonard Rosenman orchestrate Handel's Sarabande in a more dramatic style than you would find in eighteenth-century composition.

Stanley Kubrick: This arose from another problem about eighteenth-century music -- it isn't very dramatic, either. I first came across the Handel theme played on a guitar and, strangely enough, it made me think of Ennio Morricone. I think it worked very well in the film, and the very simple orchestration kept it from sounding out of place.
