FILM COMPOSER BLOG

Contractor’s Routine has added scenes since its festival showing in April. Tom Sizemore has been added to the cast. The new cut is nearly finished, and I’ve scored a new trailer for the film My favorite line is the opening one: “It’s not enough to be a genius…to be a genius you have to practice.”

This trailer music is a very amped-up version of the music actually in the film. I use parallel minor and major chords in the first section, then move to common-tone chord modulations. The final chord of the trailer is a “major-minor” chord, meaning that it has both the major and minor third sounding simultaneously. For the trailer, I added lots of rhythm and lots of drama to try and tell the film’s story in under 2 minutes.
