Cue of the Week: “Against Time”

1 Comment

We kick off the new year with one of my own personal favorites, the opening titles to the feature film Against Time. In the film, a teen whiz kid (Ean Mering) is accosted by a seemingly deranged old man (Robert Loggia) claiming to be his future self, here to stop a terrible mistake his past self is about to make. The clincher: time travel has supposedly disoriented him so much that he can’t remember what the mistake is.

Music written for opening titles tends to be an emotional synopsis of some element of the film. Here I was trying to capture a sense of passion and yearning, both of youth and old age, as well as a touch of the supernatural flavoring of time travel.

    Awesome little piece, Michael, great work! I also like the theme of that feature film that the soundtrack is for, I look forward to seeing it. Keep up the good work throughout our brave new decade!
