Cue of the Week: “A Lost Brother”

0 Comment

From a cemetery scene in the movie The F-Zone, this cue is on somber side, but with some lyrical qualities as well.

In order to underscore the sense of bleak loss, in one section I harmonized a solo flute with four double basses, rather than the thick cello/bass harmonies that one might expect for this sort of moment. The effect emphasizes the high and low ends of the orchestra while leaving a wide space in between. It’s an interesting sound, and one which feels distinctly funereal in mood.
