Above me with the book and DVD of Time and Space Reflections I made the score for


A sorrowful lullaby (very short) I composed as main theme for the Stop-motion animated movie directed by Alba García. Time and Space Reflections in 2014. Movie officially released in 2015 earning several independent awards. It's a song about longing, about missing someone that is gone. Very minimal too, just a melancholic music box and a subtle choir made by myself.

Where are you? A sorrowful lullaby as film music composer

As some of you know I love Film music being it one of my most important influences. I have collaborated in a a lot of shorts and as guest in a few soundtracks as well as commissioned music for book trailers and shows, and this is one example of music I've done for others. It is my dream actually (besides the music I do as singer-songwriter for my own released CDs) to work on film music and I've collaborated as composer and/or singer in a few.

Two sisters that are mourning their twins... in different realities and times... and they do what they must to try to get the one lost back, one through science, the other through magic and Alchemy... but maybe there will find each other again... somehow!

And here the trailer as it was released in 2014 featuring my theme

The track is called Where are you? (Also renamed as Where are you, sister? Time and Space Reflections (main theme)) and it is about the longing of missing someone that is gone. It is kind of a lullaby, just synths and subtle choirs. I tried to make my vocals very wet and ethereal. No lyrics, just instrumental this time. Just a sad lullaby.

The short was made by my friend and directorAlba García from Puerto Rico but American resident. I was rehearsing on the hotel piano for a concert at Faeriecon (I cannot recall if it was Philadelphia or Baltimore). She was there playing with her daughter and we engaged on conversation. I told her I was actually the musical performer of the event and I got to meet a sassy, sparkling artist, animator and sculptor. It wasn't the last time we met in flesh, and in fact during another scheduled performance she took pictures of me in my "performing" garment (back then I was promoting Ancient Shadows and I used to wear a black raven goth gown) and she sculpted me as a Limited edition doll.

Me sculpted by Alba. Now the doll never ages but I do... It's kind of eerie ;-)

The animated stop-motion film was inspired in the tragic loss of one of Alba's twin students Emely Gomez. Making this film helped Katherine, (Emely's twin sister) her Mom and Alba herself to heal. Grieving is one of the most vulnerable stages one can feel. But together we can make this healing less lonely. The goal of the film is to reunite the twins at least in a fantasy world. The short collected several international awards and my friend Alba has gone on her dream as animator being currently working in two projects "Dangerously Ever After" (based in a fantasy illustrated children´s book), another stop-motion fantasy short movie and a full length with puppets.

One of my dreams is to work more for soundtracks

Even if I have a few collaborations here and there, being maybe the most important me being the lead singer of Coliseum (available on spotify) recorded with symphonic orchestra and choir), I have the dream of recording more collaborations for soundtracks besides my own original songs and albums.
And not all the little snippets I've done are listed but I found fancy I'm listed at IMDB

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3312672/

It's the genre I enjoy most and listen the most to and in fact I used to have a neat collection of music scores in the 90s and 00s.

Thank you for the reply, I have been a bit off grid, getting lost in the woods while recovering a nasty cold, but kind of feel Steemit is ominously quiet and I really am grateful of your feedback.

Absolutely stunning, perfectly crafted for the stop motion animation such a sad tale but a fitting tribute as well to the passed student.

I'm quite sure it is the doll that ages not you @yidneth , every post of yours I see is a delight you really do excellent at creating an experience of visual and audio delight.

Awwyou are always so encouragingly sweet. I do try my best to keep the feed consistent with what I do, tomorrow off to a beautiful Nature to get more inspiration.

Hi Pris. It seems I have a lot of catching up to do on the music side. I listened to one of your songs earlier and enjoyed it. I think it was called Grow.

·

You are welcome, yes, Grow is one of my singles, actually a rather recent one that is not included in the released albums... I posted last month about the making of the videoclip and behind the scenes, I live in North of Spain, where biggest beechwoods of Europe are.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Wow! Very cool, I know that stop motion is a lot of work, glad they could get someone as talented as you to help with the music!

Feel better soon! We will be listening to your song and sending positive vibes!

·

Thanks for listening, we had another talented fellow to do the rest of the music, and also variations on my own written theme, but they kept my original theme just as I did it so we co-sign the whole soundtrack. It was sweet. Aww yes, hahaha health wise is a complicated month and now this cold hahaha LOL sorry for the coughing live

What a lovely theme, very haunting.

·

Thank you, "haunting" is one of my favourite words I use it a lot!
