A long hot, sticky & musically dark winter

Whilst it’s been super-quiet on ebauche.net for the past 5 months or so, I can assure you that I have been anything other than quiet.

At the end of last year I got offered work on my first feature-film, titled Five Day Shelter (view info on IMDB). It struck me as quite a dark film and I had to be careful to avoid encouraging acts of self-harm as a result of overly dark musical content!

I had only 9 weeks to compose the score for the entire film, as well as handle the sound design. At the end of those 9 weeks I boarded a plane and headed to Chennai in order to oversee the post-production in a sound studio there. That took another 3 weeks. By the time we finished the film and I said farewell to the rest of the post-production team I was well and truly exhausted, possibly more so than I’ve ever been before (trying to compose a feature length score in that time whilst also trying to balance running a web-design company is not recommended).

I figured that seeing as I had travelled so far I might as well go a little further, and from India I flew to Kuala Lumpur and on to Phnom Penh in Cambodia, where I’ve holed up since. It’s given me a chance to catch up with some friends who’ve been living here for a while, including the proprietor of my first release, Invisible Agent boss Warren Daly.

I took a little time off around Christmas but have now settled into life in Cambodia and am going to be sticking around here for a while. What’s on the cards musically whilst I’m here?

Most of the above has to be completed in the next month, so I’m going to be a little busy for the next while.

Also, I finally got round to uploading and creating a release page for last years ABCNET EP, Mucilage Biopsy. If you haven’t heard it yet then head over here to download this free music release.
