I've been doing a conceptual score for a film I look to do in the near future based on one of my short stories. My aim is straight horror so don't expect anything light or comedic in this conceptual score suite I'm posting. The title of the original story is Blood Wings and this conceptual score suite is comprised of several pre-existing elements and you will no doubt laugh when you see me list the contents used for this 11 minute suite but rest assured that you probably won't recognize them at all. I used mostly Penderecki works blended with music from Hellraiser, The Evil Dead, Let Me In, Lady in the Water, Superman Returns, and Bride of Chucky. The majority of the work is Penderecki with the aforementioned scores blending seamlessly in with the Penderecki music creating a sound scape that, to me, is very epic and large scale. Naturally once the film gets made it's not going to feature any of this music but the intense sound is what I'm going for. Keep in mind that this music is definitely not for the weak of heart or easily startled. It's as dark as dark can be. There are no jump scare style stingers here, just pure horror music. This conceptual score has gone through so many dramatic changes and this result is so far my absolute favorite and the one likely to stick with me and help in the original score composition process when I begin production on the short (I have decided the story works best as a short film). It has a very Lynchian vibe to it (I spotted the similarity after checking out Lynch's Inland Empire and it's similar use of music for unease and fright) and I'm just curious for you, the users', input. I had posted this before but I've made some additional modifications to it so I hope you all enjoy and if anyone has any curiosity to read the story to help better understand where I'm going with the music, feel free to let me know.
