The Wheels of Chance - Soundtrack Recipe



Ingredients:
Bass guitar (5-string)
Electric guitar (x2 = AXE ATTACK)
Korg X5
MicroKorg
Novation Bass Station
Pioneer DJM800
Synare (DIY kit + DIY trigger)
Tenor Saxophone
Clarinet
Trombone
Pocket Trumpet
Laptop (x2 = sound effect centre)
Cymbal
Chimes
Cowbell
Whistle
Boite d'Oiseaux
Effects units
Contact Microphone (DIY)
Slinky



Recipe:
Place all the above in a pressure filled environment along with three keen folk for approx. three weeks: Steam, broil, smoke, grill and beat until bubbling with energy and serve on a bed of enthusiasm in front of a live studio audience.

For best results, consume whilst hot and fresh from the pressure cooker.

Making a soundtrack is a lot of work. Composing melodies that work with the movement on screen, keeping the mood correct by selecting appropriate instrumental voices, ensuring that the tempo is right, ensuring that the transitions between scenes flow...

Imagine trying to do this with a tight deadline, and adding the challenge of making the resulting composition ready for live performance.

After just under three weeks of work it's ready.
