Here’s the final version of my mockup score to the extended trailer of Cloud Atlas. This was recorded last December by the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra.
Last week I had a ton of fun with the ICSO rehearsing and recording a film score mockup I wrote during a course in advanced film scoring. Seven composers participated in the project, and all the music turned out really well – we have great musicians here!
The orchestra surrounded by microphones, cords, and sound panels. Many of them have headsets which had click tracks piped into them for precise timings during recording.
Here’s the studio where we hung out. All the sounds came through those immaculate speakers.
Dr. Jeff Meyer, the orchestra director, along with the student audio engineer (crap…I can’t remember his name – someone remind me). They had buttons which allowed them to talk to the orchestra through the speaker system, or, if needed, just to the conductor’s headset.
I should have the finished product at some point very soon, stay tuned!
