This is the ending scene of the Austrian short film "Lunch Break" with a new score composed by me at this years "Hollywood Music Workshop 2011" with Blake Neely & Nathan Blume at Klosterneuburg, Austria
All participants of this workshop had to pick a scene (some did the whole film!) from "Lunch Break" to rescore with new music, some of them combining samples with live instruments (the recording session with oboe, violin & violoncello occured on July 13th, 2011 at the workshop - supervised by Blake Neely & Nathan Blume).
The final results showed a great variety of musical ideas, approaches etc. - all of them great and on a very high level!
Congratulations to all my colleagues who participated in this years workshop! :-)
I tried to recreate the tension of the original score while working with a different approach, more relying on the effects you can produce with real instruments.
I used a combination of several elements (a certain signature sound, the piano theme at the end in it's full representation, inside piano effects, soundscapes with the live instruments etc.) to achieve a tension likewhise to the original film score by Axel Hirn. Since I only had enough time to write, arrange & programme the last scene (I would have liked to do some other parts as well in order to show how the musical elements would have come together) this is the final result.
This clip with my music was also publicly presented (after a screening of the original film) - with the director Christoph Strobl, screenplay writer Christoph Petrik & its original composer Axel Hirn attending - at the Shortynale Short Film Festival in Klosterneuburg on August 6th, 2011
Sadly I couldn't include the films sound effects etc. as they were inseperatable from the films original score (which of course wouldn't have had a good sound result when thrown in together with mine ^^)
