Director Tim Glover (USA) commissioned me to score his recent short film, ‘Esrever’, a thriller in reverse (with a twist). The brief was to compose a soundtrack which was equal parts bleak and haunting, as the story featured the last hours of a suicidal depressive.
Due to budget contraints, no ‘real’ instrumentation was used on the recording, instead I produced the soundtrack using synths and plugin sample libraries to the best effect.
I’m very pleased to learn that the prize winning short film, ‘Leben – Touching Life’ has been very well received on the international film festival circuit, having been shown at twenty six festivals around the world, from the UK to Chile, Romania to Spain. Together with Patrick O. Beck, we composed and produced the soundtrack for the film in a little under a week, and my endless thanks go to our band, ‘Die Digitale Immigranten’ who so marvelously performed the soundtrack under extreme pressure (from me, on industrial strength painkillers as I had just had my wisdom teeth removed).
