Have listen to my contribution to Outliers Vol. 1, which is out now! Also visit the Outliers shop for amazing prints, book, DVD of the film, and the companion soundtrack CD. I’m so honored to be a part of this incredible Kickstarter-funded project.
I tried some new ideas on this one. So here’s an explanation for the geeks…
A friend of mine destroyed a grand piano with a bat in an empty warehouse and filmed it for a short film he made. I asked him for some raw camera audio from the shoot. I took a particularly explosive clip and slowed it down to 20% speed, and made a Kontakt instrument from the resulting sound. Then I created a chord progression with it, changing harmony at each strike.

I also built a small Kontakt instrument from Shara Worden’s voice. I programmed her “ah” to stutter around, then bounce like a ball does, only in reverse (the longer I hold the note, the further away each “bounce” becomes).
