Music & Sound by Aaron Eastwood

  1. As silent films continue to grab the attention of modern movie lovers, a new generation of composers are providing customized music for these classic works. I recently joined this group of silent film enthusiasts by composing a score for this 1902 Georges Méliès classic. The challenge in creating this piece was striking a balance between "old fashioned" and modern musical sounds, which I accomplished through the contrast and interplay between the straightforward, classical style presented in the first and final sections of the film, and the electronic sounds and extended tonalities heard during the scenes on the moon.

  2. Spark (2016) follows a nano-materials engineer who gains the ability to transform into a spaceship as he flees from a universe that wants to see him destroyed. Working with a group of talented developers at the University of Southern California, I had the privilege of designing and implementing all of the audio in the game, giving me the chance to work with the audio implementation tools in Unity 3D and personally script all of the audio-related code in C#. This video offers a look at some of Spark's key sound design elements. Special acknowledgment to composer Alex Winkler for his fantastic score, and a very special thanks to director Chris Cantwell for making this video possible.

  3. Sintel (2014) is an independently produced short film initiated by the Blender Foundation. When I first learned of Sintel, I became excited by the idea of reimaging the music, particularly this journey montage. As Sintel travels the world looking for a lost friend, I wanted the music to reflect each of the different locations she visits, yet remain a unified musical idea. To achieve this, I introduced a variety of non-Western instrument sounds underscored by a consistent driving rhythm. Hear more on my website at aaroneastwood.com.
