"One Song" Score Request

CALLING ALL COMPOSERS!

Work on a few short pieces of Music for wirrow’s new Animated Short Film based on the notes below from jeffpeff. CONTRIBUTE HERE

==

MUSICAL NOTES

Next up musically for our “One Song” collaboration is a need for 2 larger pieces of music, and 2 shorter pieces:

1) A piece for the Opening and Closing Narration parts.

2) A piece under The Spirit of Music’s dialogue where she tells them they must work together.

3) A super-short scary underscore for Silence’s arrival, where they all scream.

We don’t have the final voiceover or animation in place to work with yet, but you can READ THE SCRIPT HERE for the text.  It’s what we call a ‘Pre-score’ : ) We hope to have your contributions by Monday, September 30th!

==

Opening / Closing Narration Music: 2 Pieces, about 25 seconds each

Both pieces are about 25 seconds long.  No shorter than 20, and no longer than 30, as counted from ‘first sound’ to ‘letting the last note ring out appropriately’. They should probably be stylistic bookends for the piece, so if you’re going to do one of them, I’d encourage you to do the other too, so they’re as-related to each other as they can be…We’ll probably favor compositions that are written for both parts.

The goal of the Opening Music is to give some weight to the opening narration.  You could play through it without much musical commentary on the narration, or you could break it down into 3 very short sections:  1) A straight-up introduction 2) Some darkness under “…but silence was angered by this disturbance of his slumber…” and 3) A return to the feeling of number 1 above, maybe with the addition of something to indicate some tension, as it leads right into the Spirit of Music’s challenge to the crowd.

For the Closing Music, nothing much is needed more than a happy wrap-up to the story.  Again, if you’ve also done the opening music, you should use the same palette of sounds, maybe revisit a melody. As for the tone:  Personally, I think it’s ‘fairy tale’.  Dunno what more to say, really.  Given that this is essentially a comedy piece, it could very well be traditional-sounding, with strings and flutes and harps and the like;  Pastoral and sweet…cuz we’re going to sully up the mood with some snarky humor later on, undercutting it…which is always funny : )  But if you want to imprint some weird, unique stamp on this world instead, by all means:  Let’s hear it!

==

A Cue for the Reveal of The Spirit of Music

Here’s what we need…Times are EXACT, give or take one second.  In reality, this is one single cue, but to work the humor, I think it really should be broken down into three different moments.  So I’m defining it as 3 sections:

1) 6 seconds of a majestic, angelic piece, where the Spirit of Music breaks up their argument.  Followed by:

2) 5 seconds of what amounts to a continuation of above, where she says “Only with one song will you all prevail…”.  An inspiring, majestic piece, building in grandeur and anticipation….I suggest it should hold for the glooms’ line “ugh…am I really supposed to compromise etc…”;  Maybe not a full stop…something should continue to ring out and hold, cuz our REAL stop is coming next, and we don’t want to steal the humor from it.

3) 5 seconds of a continuation of the build, where she says “Only with one song will you all prevail…Now go, go…”  Actually, you can make it longer than 5 seconds.  Doesn’t matter how it ends, cuz at some point around 5 seconds, we’re gonna cut it off in an awkward way, as the script notes.

==

A Cue for Silence

Literally 2 to 3 seconds…A Foreboding, scary moment, just after The Spirit of Music leaves the frame to leave the group at the mercy of Silence, and he steals their screams.  This moment is broken by the Trolls’ line “Alright…So, what we doin?”

"Of Messengers and Wolves"

-

I’ve sat through a thousand other sunsets in my life

They’ve all been beautiful but this one is for you

It’s warming the air around us while the darkness sets in

You are still alive and so am I for the time being

It’s gotten hard for me to write and color lost its glow

But the night took you away and left me no place else to go

-

If you’d come back to life, you’d find a den of wolves at my door

Asking if that pretty girl is coming around anymore

You’re more than a painting ever conveyed to our eyes

More beautiful than the ivory on old piano keys

I never thought the world was a stage but now I see

It was meant to display you, the unrequited, and me

-

Crushed under the weight, a skeleton rusting at its hinges

I am worried that these wolves will take you away from me

And I’m in no condition to fend them off with my bare hands

When they’re reaching for yours even though you’re not there

This is where the fangs dance electric, where moonlight goes astray

-

Why don’t we walk a little ways until the atlas gets changed

And a place we knew becomes a graveyard or a stage

I barely know the sound of your name, but I’m trying

There is only so much a man can find in his own heart beating

Sometimes I fear it’s your footsteps leaving

-

And I wake up to find I was always alone

The scavengers gnawed until they finally hit bone

I wear the crown of a fool with bad taste

Until I found you and this tired life changed

I’ll see you at night in the caves of that dream

Only then will it makes sense, or so it will seem

-

I’d have asked the ocean to spare us but it owes me no favors

I guess this is love and these must be its labors

I think this is a perfect opening sequence or end credits track for some intense feature film. It has a good feel to it. Very well done.
