Cue of the Week: “Kick the Can”

Another selection from the score for Emerald, Texas. Two friends kick the can down a dusty Kansas lane. The music blends American folk with the chamber string sound that recurs throughout the score. 

One subtle detail: the string harmonies come from playing several notes of the film’s main melody simultaneously. Composers employ sneaky tricks like this to create a sense of subtle familiarity throughout a score.
