For the MediaMonks Filmsreel of 2018 we wanted to try something new and create a custom piece of music to tie the best of MediaMonks Films together.
The workflow of this piece was quite interesting as it started off with my collegae Einar Ihle composing the intro of the piece. After the shoe hits the ground I took over from him and was challenged to create a lift in energy. Together with our editor Tim Knots I then started to add parts where the music could interact with the imagery. Like the moment with the opera singer and the fader moment. Also the part with the emotional piano is a nice example of how edit and music work together. I composed this musical intermezzo first and Tim made it work by editing this beautiful fluent dancing scene on top. The piece ends with a huge buildup that finishes on the MM logo. The music you hear in this piece is a combination of samples, an ARP Odyssey patch designed by Maarten Meussen and live violin by Einar Ihle.
