In the world of making music for things in film and TV you don’t get the luxury of making it up however you please and hope that it will fit. Instead you have to sketch things out, mock them up and then fine tune. The fine tuning is where creating a piece of music can take a really long time. Such is the case right now for a cue that I’m currently doing for a film trailer. What began a couple of weeks ago, is now undergoing refinements.
Those refinements are taking time due to waiting on the powers that be to make decisions.
The fun thing is as the revisions get done and the feedback comes in the cue takes better and better shape and fits the desired media in a way the goes very well. Of course it’s not as fun when it becomes a rush to finish the cue each time. But I really think the final version will work great. Then it comes down to whether or not the studio will like it enough to air it.
We shall see. We shall see.
Changes is the song you’re hearing right now. I’m sure most people instantly think of David Bowie when they think of a song called Changes. However, this is from the hair metal era. If I could go back in time and experience that era, I’d say that Tesla would certainly be one of my favorites from then, for sure. They have a street cred to their sound that I really like. Plus they really took the idea of using two guitars to a level that most bands should aspire to.
The way the play pedal tones off each other and stack their chords is awesome. Plus their intertwining lines are really cool too. Of course this music isn’t so much in style today, but it’s still great music. The vocals are very distinctive. The bass and the drums are solid in every way. It all rolls together and works.
I wonder how many changes they had to make in the studio to get it to work. Good question.
Go get it today!
