scoring cicada princess: behind the scenes


While Cicada Princess was still in production, I started composing some themes based on the story. I visited the set a few times, so I had an idea about the look of film. I probably had a feature film's worth of music for this short. Once there was a locked edit it became clear that, although the story is kind of epic and operatic in scale, the score needed to provide a thread to tie together the quickly-moving story together. 

Featured soloists:
Cornelius Boots: bass clarinet, clarinet, flute
Graham Patzner: violin
Alan Stewart: bowed vibraphone
Laura Weinbach: vocals
