spanning decades, across the ages
My attempt to produce a traditional version of film music -
a main theme which is reinterpreted in a variety of ways throughout the film to enhance/underpin/contrast with the prevailing mood of the images at any point in the film.
Possibly there are insufficient variations on this theme to fully uphold the thesis, but that's the theory, at least.
The main melody is some 30 years old; one for which I've been attempting to find a home in all that time.
It was almost included in a documentary about arctic exploration,
but the main protagonist fell-out with the production company at the point of departure, so that film was never made.
Nor indeed is there yet a film for the music in its current form.
You'll need to indulge me quite a but here, but:
keeping in mind the idea of long distance journeying that was the subject of the abandoned film that was not to be; having myself reached the milestone age of 50 this year (and as a Thursday Child, I have far to go), and in search of a motif, I became drawn to the idea of "spanning the ages", and - albeit a somewhat thin conceit - started taking a series of images of the Severn Bridge which crosses between Wales and England as I drove across it twice a week, enroute to London from Penarth. Rather than a "movie", these pictures form a slow-dissolve montage of the bridge in changing light and weather conditions.
Or will do, if I ever get around to completing it!
