Scoring sessions for the award winning short film "THE BALLAD OF SANDEEP" at Air Studios in London, UK

Scoring Sandeep:

It was a real pleasure for us to have been invited by Derek to score the music for his short film, "The Ballad of Sandeep". Derek's original brief was for us to provide an 'Americana-style' score based loosely on the work of Aaron Copeland with elements of Ravi Shankar and Henry Mancini.

On spotting the film, we discussed with Derek the notion of injecting some humour and 'swing' into the movie to compliment the story and enhance the comedic aspect of what we were seeing.

And so, in approaching the score from this perspective we were able to work with not only some wonderful jazz musicians, but also the iconic Indian Musician Baluji Shrivastav. The sessions were recorded at Air Studios in London.

Fusing these disparate elements, along with a 'virtual' classical score created in our computers, gave us a diversity of musical elements that we believe are unusual to hear in a short picture.

The composition, recording and mixing of the entire score, from inception to final delivery, took some eight weeks. It was truly a delight to have worked with Derek on this engaging and successful project.

Composers Andy Richards & Mike Higham
