The Dark Valley (rescoring)

with No Comments

Here is my entry for the WKB Film Music competition 2015 (Viennese Composer Society). The given clip is from ‘Das Finstere Tal’ (The Dark Valley), an Austro/German production directed by Andreas Prochaska. I decided to score the clip with a small ensemble in mind, piano, cello, viola, flute and minimal percussion, whilst keeping true to Austrian folk music devices, as exemplified by the canon structure, voicings and certain cadences.
