Imaginary Album The Children of Loki

This project was ultimately started to push myself in the writing and recording of sounds or short musical sounds bites.
I've developed quite a keen interest in incidental music.
"Music used in a film or play as a background to create or enhance a particular atmosphere."
In some cases its harder than it sounds..! 
It becomes a battle and puzzle of wills of which comes first the Chicken "Footage" or the egg "Music."
How do you go about writing a piece of music to fit what your actually watching?
Is it going to flow with the footage, is it going to make any sense, should it make any sense?
Should I write real time to the footage and soundtrack & score as the footage unfolds?

Needless to says each piece out of the four presented there individual problems.
This has been a very "Sound" project and one I'm sure I will continue to explore.
Perhaps in time I'll work on a second Imaginary Album and see what emerges...

Sorry about the ad running I will try to sort that out, it shouldn't be there!
But someone is claiming that "Nosferatu" is theirs even tho its out of copyright date as far as I know!

  1. Chicken or the egg....Footage or music.....that's perfectly summed up my issues also whilst doing similar projects...often I create sound first then footage to suite...often ...but not always... :-)
