Hello again dear eva-fellows! What’s up? Hope everything’s fine for you as it is for us!
As you know, we released our very first short movie last week and we are really happy of all the good feedback we are receiving! So, do you like it? if you missed it, well, no trouble, you can reach it directly on our Vimeo Page, or just clicking on the “DAYDREAM” preview on the left column of this blog! Of course, every positive or (hopefully not :D) negative feedback or comment is REALLY appreciated, so don’t be shy and tell us what you think! ;)
However, as usual, in this post I’ll give you some suggestion of what is thrilling the Gang in these days, and obviously while doing that, I’ll listen to some new cool music!
The amazing album I’m listening to right now is one of the last I bought, “Ogni riferimento… è puramente casuale” from Calibro35, probably the most intresting band in Italy of these days, for me at least! Listen to them and support this great band!
The second suggestion I’ll give you tonight is a very absorbing TV show, Dexter. LuckyBastard introduced me to the series right during the making of DAYDREAM and it really fascinated me, expecially for its particular and rather “claustrophobic” photography, as you can see from its brilliant opening sequence:
The next suggestion for you is still in the TV series area. During this week I had some time to look for the composer of my favourite series at the moment, The Walking Dead; if you haven’t watched the show, it’s certainly worth at least a try!
However, while watching the show I have always been impressed on how its soundtrack could improve and emphasize the emotions and feelings in the various moments of the show in such a very subtle way, so that you aren’t really aware of the tune that’s flowing under the scene, but at the same time it manages to move you emotionally without distracting you from the scene. Needless to say that this is what all film score composers aim and that it’s all but easy to get! Especially in a weekly series in which time and resources are much short than those of the big screen movies.
So I found out that the composer of the show is Bear McCreary, known for scoring quite a few of other series, and what I discovered on his blog left me really impressed and confirmed my impression that he is a really talented and creative composer! Just take a look to his last video-blog in which he tells you on how he managed to use a Kazoo (yes, a kazoo!) in The Walking Dead score:
I know, it’s impressive! He gave a all new dimension to that weird-quacky-thing!
Well, I think it’s time to leave you for now!
I hope you enjoyed my suggestion, I’ll see you soon on these pages!
