For the past two months, I’ve been working as a producer on a musical film project with fellow composers Elliot Murphy and Josh Reichental, directed by Donncha Gilmore. At this point, the project has taken in work from teams in London, Dublin and New York.
Its a ten minute piece, with the closest musical reference point being musical theatre, but the music moves far beyond the conventions of that idiom. Harmonically, its incredibly rich and adventurous, and the arrangements, which are hyperactive and dense, frequently occupy a space bordering on the surreal. Its also very funny.
All of these things make it a real challenge to mix. Check out this screenshot of one of the Logic sessions.
