Film & theater music

This music is meant to accompany other actions, on screen or on stage. Some tunes are repetitive and the directors cut them as they wish. Sometimes I sticked to the precise timings of the scenes.

Kagok Semarang is a traditional gamelan tune, performed here by Estelle Amy de la Bretèque in several playback takes. I realized different mixes to accompany a friend's mise-en-scène of the play Ondine by Jean Giraudoux. The play was staged twice as my friend's final project at the professional theater school Cours Florent in Paris.

Opening

A 20 minutes loop (cut to 2 minutes here) played during public's entrance and first moments of the play.

Between act I and II

The stage is dark. The knight wakes up between two paths of light and hesitates on which of them to follow.

Act II

Remix of the Allegro of Sympĥony n°34 by W. A. Mozart. Made it to last only 20 seconds (!),  as a jingle to the king & court's entrance. 

Final scene

Death comes to get the knight. Ondine forgets everything...

From the soundtrack of the documentary film Au delà des frontières (Borders), by Bartolomeo Conti, Richard Prost and Sharon Weill, 2004 (8 et plus productions, Paris).

Wawa

For the opening/closing credits of the film. The synthesizer is playing a rhythmic drone note with a rich sound, obtained through a rough mix of triangle-shaped waves. To this I applied a bandwidth filter, controlled through the keyboard's mod-wheel. The melodic line is perfomed on a syrian ney

Korish

My friend Korish Taba, playing the 'ud during a party back in 1997... To his chorus, I added some drops.

D'n'f

Drum'n'lute, for a "fast-forward" sequence of the film. The instruments here are pandeiro (played verically like a ganjira), jew's harp, bulgarian kaval, and sampled drums and bass guitar.
