Reflections on Art and Life
My score to The Bubble Tree, an animation by Ran Jing recently won the Skirball Film Scoring Competition and was premiered by the NYU Symphony Orchestra in a live concert synchronized to film on March 7, 2011 in New York.
This black and white film, deceptively simple, was a challenge to score. With its shifting emotional ebbs and flows and frequent changes of pace, composing a soundtrack for a full symphony orchestra required a Swiss watch precision and careful planning. Nevertheless, working on this film was very rewarding.
Let me know what you think about the music and about the message of the film.
