For my second feature-length film score with director John Yost & musical collaborator Peter Klinkon, I incorporated live effects ("knob-tweaking," mixing and such) with an electric guitar to produce a full range of sound; music that "flows" with a natural cadence. In this scene, ambient music reinforces the worn emotional state of the main character as his actions (stealing a cat) reflect his state of desperation.
Other examples of my work with John & Peter can be seen in John's first feature, Every Good Thing to Rust (everygoodthingtorust.com)
