Reflections on Art and Life
I had the privilege to record 4 demo soundtracks with the NYU session players over the last two years. My first session featured 5 instruments, the second session – 11, then I got to record with the string orchestra, and finally, with the symphony orchestra.
For my final session I wanted to do something unexpected and daring. I am naturally drawn to drama and thrive on lyricism, but this time I wanted to explore sensuality and aggressive desire in music. The knife throwing scene from “The Girl on the Bridge” – La fille sur le pont (1999) by Patrice Leconte seemed like the perfect canvas to paint on with bright red.
In the original version, the film features a melancholic song, but my instrumental soundtrack adds a little more poetry and sizzle to the scene, stylistically suggesting the film noir genre.
