The Fog - Film Score

The Fog is a short film directed by Gianna Mazzeo, which handles the topics of climate change, coming of age and procreation. The project is currently in production. I’ll complete this page with documentation and content after the project is done!

The brief for this film score:

Minimal, stripped back, simple yet emotive composition that incorporates avant-garde + futuristic sounds/samples into the mix to allude to the sci-fi world in which the short takes place.

As this brief is very in my comfort zone, I want to experiment some more with my composition setup by integrating the live coding language TidalCycles into my current composition setup comprising of Cubase and Max8.

The signal flow now looks like this:

Because TidalCycles uses SupperCollider as the audio engine, the quality of DSP is excellent. So for extreme pitch shifting for example, there are some great granular moments to be found. I’ll be using TidalCycles mainly for this, ie extreme effecting and sound mangling.
