A mini-film and composition exercise. I shot the video while walking in a recent snow storm near dusk in Louisville, CO just outside of Boulder using a waterproof Samsung HMX-W200 (down-rezed).

While it was a very pleasant walk indeed, I found a few creepy frames when I watched the footage back - natural images that looked like faces of creatures. So as a fun Sunday morning exercise, I edited the film and composed a sinister score in one sitting.

I edited the film first using Sony Vegas then imported it into Ableton Live in Arrangement view. I improvised using virtual instruments including Absynth 5, Rob Papen Predator, and Waldorf Largo. I also programmed against cue points on the time-line.

Almost all the patches are from INIT except for an Absynth patch near the very end. The cello is not a sample, but a synthesized cello-like patch I'm working on for Absynth which was far enough along and perfect for this piece.

I used audio from the camera mic at the beginning (footsteps) and the end (snow crystals falling on the camera housing).
