Cue of the Week: “4am”

This one is unusual for me in that it’s all-synth. I refer to it as a dark journey through an alien place. It was closer to a performance than a composition in the traditional sense, in that I rode the pitch-bend wheel to create ongoing modulations. (Or in less fancy terms, the wweeeOOOOWwwwwww effects.) Definitely not something you’re going to whistle on the way to work. 馃檪

Cue of the Week: “Alone in the City”

This week’s selection is another cue from the political thriller The F-Zone. More accurately, a medley of two cues for adjacent film scenes which I thought complemented each other well.

The first part puts a moody soprano sax* atop piano and flutes, while the second section is more somber and string-focused.

* Saxophones aren’t legally required to only play jazz!

Cue of the Week: “The Audit”

In movies as in life, a tax audit is a trying event. The audit scene in the thriller The F-Zone is accompanied by the score’s recurring piano motive as well as glissando strings which might suggest (depending on your imagination) either alarms or sighing with exhaustion.
