Well, this is my very first attempt at a ‘comedy’ cue (so be gentle… but firm). I have to admit it has been fun to get out of my comfort zone. The libraries used are:
• PMI Steinway
• LOP (bass drum, tamb, triangle, cymbals)
• Roland JV Orch card (still planning on getting QLSO or Vienna)
This is a short 1 minute (1.4 Mb) cue at a point in the film where ‘church goers’ are over the top acting immature and ridiculous (thus the Celesta handling the melody of this old time Hymn – “I heard the Bells on Christmas Day”). This particular hymn is a comedic element in the screenplay as well.
You will probably hear my HUGE need for a solo string library (had a violinist try to record it last night and it didn’t turn out so hot – he said I was possessed for writing such a part). It really isn’t that difficult, though. Solo string recommendations would be appreciated (with this film’s meager budget I have to save all my ‘live musicians’ monies for Sharmy’s Do-bro guitar )
Certainly compositional and mixing ideas would be appreciated (I did a very quick stereo mix into SX).
Then click “Heard the Bells – Comedy”
