This is a music cue from a documentary that I scored a few years back, which recieved an Emmy nomination for original music. This cue is interesting because I recorded and sampled tools such as welding torches and metal clangs, and used them in the music. The music was for a scene where the workers were welding metal together to form a giant metal sphere, covered with the peace prayer written in languages from all around the world.

Very atmospheric.

The song projects a mental image very quickly.
When I first heard it, it sounded almost post-apocalyptic.
Then I read the description, and it was still awesome.
I could see how this would be Emmy nominated; it's quality work.

Awesome

I love how you incorporate the actual sounds of the tools into the song itself.

I really enjoy bringing into the music actual sounds from the environment that you see on screen. When added to the score, it can first make you feel like you are just hearing the natural sounds on screen. I am currently getting ready to score a prison documentary, and I'm capturing sounds from inside the prison to use in the score. It should be interesting!

Awesome.

Just great. How do you do this?


kevincroxton responds:

Thanks taking time to listen. To answer your question, I went to the workshop where the sphere was constructed and captured sounds ( welding torches, hammering metal, compressor,etc..) When I got to the scene in the film where they welded the sphere together, I captured the sound of the welding torch, compressor and metal into my sampler, and used them as percussive elements in the score. Pretty fun stuff!

My Croxton Studios website is cool, but has not been updated since I won an Emmy this past tear. I keep the reverbnation page current, so it has more recent stuff. Both are really good. Check them out!!!
