Translating French poetry and its role in the modernist movement.
I'm a senior majoring in anthropology with a minor in music. Last year, my friend Lilly Tyson, who was producing a short Hitchcock-inspired short film for her thesis, asked me if I would be interested in writing an original score. For many years, I had written songs on guitar and voice, but I had always been interested in composing something for film. At the time I started work on the score, Lilly and her team hadn't shot the film. Because there were no images to go off of, I composed the score based on the atmosphere and plot that Lilly had described. I decided to compose for a string quartet, piano, and wood block. I thought the wood block could be used sporadically to evoke an irregular heart beat (Lilly's film was a murder mystery), and the strings would create an edgy and tension-filled atmosphere.
