Imagine this: You’re in the movie theater, the lights are dim and the screen is dark. An acoustic guitar begins playing a melody as the first scene begins. Moving with richness and simplicity, the guitar sets a tone that is carried through to the film’s end. A soundtrack talks about as much as possible. It’s the stage for what you will feel.
“We wanted to give the composer options.” So we came up with a layout that offers lots of parts for each suite and has the ability to seamlessly combine melodic lines with chordal passages for a “two player” sound.
After a few parts were written for each suite, we would identify the overall feel: bittersweet, contentment, expectant, mournful, etc., going as far as discussing the type of scene or visual the music could accompany.
To achieve a broader range of tones and feel, almost every suite had its chordal passages recorded with a capo placed at a different fret of the guitar’s neck. The whole range of the neck was used for the melody lines.
The guitar used on this project was a Lowden O25C. All chordal passages were recorded in stereo using a Neumann KM184 cardioid condenser microphone paired with a Studio Projects T3 vacuum tube microphone. All melody lines were recorded in stereo using a pair of KM184s. Everything was recorded through a Benchmark PRE420 preamp. “
