Sankt Georg

Post by FriFlo » Mon 11 Mar 2019 12:56

I made the music for this several years ago, but I recently saw that it has been publicly uploaded, so, here we go ...

It was very low budget, so I couldn't afford to put to much time into it. That is why it is very simple, sketchy without intricate midi programming and has no musical complexity or detailed orchestration. Anyway, I still enjoy the emotion triggered and the whole setting, so ... enjoy!

I like the theme at the beginning and ending. Not a lot to say about the rest, it sure does the job and remains discreet.

Thanks, Raphael. You are right. As I said: I had a minimal budget for the music AND the sound design. If you have ever done sound design, you probably know how time consuming it is, especially, if you do not do it on a frequent basis ... I would usually decline that kind of money for doing both, but it was kind of a friendship thing.
So, for the opening, I tried to come up with something unique, but as soon as I realized how much work the sound design would be, I needed to get the music done quickly. That is why I said, it is pretty sketchy. And due to client wishes, I even had to strip down the music for some parts. From what I know, the film is running at the exhibition in Switzerland with just the sound design without any music ... I think that is wrong though, as the music - as bare as it is - does an important job of carrying the emotion. And that part does work IMO.
Aren't you in from Switzerland? Maybe you can tell me, how they present the film for me some day! ;-)
I think we are the only two guys participating here for several days ... :-(

Nope, I'm a french guy ;-) Agreed on the sound design side, I went through one sound design job once and promised myself never going through that kind of job again.

Yep, I see what you mean by the emotion-carrier. Even a double bass alone can do a lot to shed a dark mood. But you seem to be very proficient, determining upfront what you want and what you don't. For my part, I'm still in this additive urge, wasting some (precious) time to remove a lot of unnecessary parts and never able to clean all the mess.

Alright! I don't know where I came up with that ... must have confused you with someone else who wrote something like that.

Sound design is actually very interesting. I just suck at it, because I only had some very little practice at the film school I studied and never did it again. But I really think it is great fun and you can also learn a lot from it for making music (and vice versa).
It can also teach you, where overwriting is a problem ... ;-)
