Building a Soundtrack: The Rescue
If you were to remove the soundtrack in almost any film, you’ll be surprised at just how much emotion & atmosphere it takes away. Pete shares a few thoughts on the process of building a soundtrack.
Why we made it?
If you were to remove the soundtrack in almost any film, you’ll be surprised at just how much emotion & atmosphere it takes away.
When working on the soundtrack for our most recent film ‘The Rescue’, we wanted to create a soundtrack that matched both the hard hitting mood of the narrative and the slow pace of the visual.
How we made it?
As this piece included a range of long cuts, we tried to leave enough ambient space within the soundtrack to allow Leila’s narrative to have space to breathe and cut through.
At 1m40 we tried to bring a subtle shift in the mood of the soundtrack to help support the hopeful change in the narrative.
We used a few tones from Spectrasonic’s Synth Plug-In ‘Omnisphere’ to create the bed of ambience for the main piano chord sequence to sit on.
Who inspired us?
Nils Frahm has recently created an incredibly beautiful Piano VST called ‘Unacorda’ including a range of felt, fabric & cotton piano tones, we would highly recommend it.
