Examples of musical cues for Home Wrecker for the course on film scoring for musicians

Joe Mac has created two musical cues using a Midi controller and GarageBand 4 - 05 October 2007 - 20 points

Blue Gordon has created the film score using Sibelius 4, using the Garritan Personal Orchestra sound library. - 05 December 2007 - 20 points

Blue Gordon says, "Scoring this scene was challenging and hard. I thought, scoring for film would be easier, but it's hard to find something that fits the film and make the music into something coherent, which in "Home Wrecker", I haven't fully managed to do. To be honest, I don't feel like scoring another scene, after seeing how difficult it was to score "Home Wrecker"...

Ben Henderson (Cubinoid) has created the film score for "Home Wrecker". - 05 December 2007 - 20 points

Cubinoid has also created the two cues for Home Wrecker.
I used Logic Pro and lots of orchestral samples.
The opening cue resembles a pastoral symphony - in contrast to the desolation of the scenery, but it aims to provide a "Dawn" image, yet with underlying unease. The unease turns to tension when the feet come into view - is that a dead body we see?
Alarm bells start ringing and the melodramatic horns signal the start of something happening.
The final cue is a parody of a song voted the second sexiest song of all time - "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails. In the complete version, I added a tambourine because during writing the score, it became an type of leitmotif instrument that represented the baddy/boyfriend - it has references to the tail rattle of a snake, traditionally the symbol for the devil and temptation within Christian culture, and simultaneously it is a reference to early Pagan and Montagnais spiritual music, that was originally played on tambourine, and I used this as a reference to the animism and spiritualism of those cultures. I like the fact that this dualism represents a character that is inherently bad and yet a boyfriend as well.

      • Instructor's note: The first cue is extremely good. It works well with the scene.
