One More Day – A videotrailer for a Novel

Just when I thought I’d turned my hand to everything, Miki and I got all caught up in the excitement of our fellow Cafe Cremer Michael Pokocky has he prepared to unleash his novel “One More Day” across the world via the internet.  We wanted to create a trailer advertising the book, but not really like a movie trailer, so that your imagination would still work it’s magic when you read the real thing. We don’t have too much technology at our disposal, but we tried to make up for that with creativity, and I think we pulled off a decent job. The music for the piece was written pretty much on the fly, and as with Susan Cornelis’ Video , I awoke with a theme in my head. Later the same day, I had another piano theme in my head, and I linked the two to create the music here, with some big power chords for dramatic effect.  I have a range of great effects at my disposal in the studio, and all the sounds you hear on the clip are created there. Enjoy – and –

READ THE BOOK!

The Philosophy Sketches Project

It’s a busy but interesting time for moment, with ideas flying thick and fast around the Internet meeting place we like to call Cafe Crem. It’s a little corner of Cyberspace where like-minded artists, musicians and writers get together over a coffee and enjoy and support each others ideas and goals. As we’ve come to know one another better, various collaborations have taken place. Miki and I have done many together as you might expect, and I’m currently working on a soundtrack for an art video by Californian artist Susan Cornelis, and the “Altered Book” project with Shelley House is ongoing. But the video I present here took me in yet another direction. I had to conceive of a way to “perform” the thoughts of our friend, Canadian writer Michael Pokocky, and compose accompanying music to complement his wonderful “philosophical sketch” series.  I tried to cresate a piece of music that was very simple, very repetitive, but with the scope to become epic in proportions, and I tried to identify the more contemplative statements and the more assertive ones, arranging them in some kind of order of intensity, to build the dramatic effect. in harmony with the music, I hope I’ve achieved what i set out to do, ending on a positive high, which is what we all hope for, don’t you think? Enjoy the video!
