PowerPoint Presentation: SOUND| IN FILM SOUND IN FILM|USE: SOUND IN FILM| USE The soundtrack of a film, and music used is key in setting the tone and genre of a film for the audience. In our film, with our limited music facilities we are forced to think more deeply about the type of sound we include. As we are creating the opening sequence, we must think about setting the tone for the rest of the film as previously mentioned, in an effective way. As they are children, the emphasis being on the dark nature of their actions; experimenting with sounds that have a child-like nature like a Xylophone would add a sound that is almost contrapuntal. We could contrast it with a bass sound, like a guitar; and use a heavy drumming sound of some sort, with a military style quality to it. Using the loops in GarageBand , copyright free sound clips on the internet and other options we will try to create a piece of music for the opening sequence that will embrace the ideals and values the film does. SOUNDTRACKS|HANNA: SOUNDTRACKS| HANNA Created by the Chemical Brothers, the Hanna soundtrack is a unique mix of childlike percussion sounds mixed with experimental electronics to create a fusion that is fun, yet odd sounding (much like the character Hanna). Personally, I believe for this film; the soundtracks and music we use must highlight the severity of Artur and Vera’s actions whilst contrasting with their age. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWd6wUh3mGo&list=PLAE3972EA600B4A73 SOUNDTRACKS|: SOUNDTRACKS| With archaic synthesised sound; striking percussion and heavy guitar and bass compilations, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’s soundtrack creates a tone that is atmospheric whilst gripping and tense. In using contrasting sounds it carries the ideals and themes of the genre. Alongside the instrumental tracks is Karen O’s ‘Immigrant Song’, a blend of piercing soprano notes and heavy guitar. We will apply elements of this soundtrack, like the percussions and eerie background tunes; into our film in order to enhance our own film. Certain tones and elements will have to be slightly rethought or just totally ignored so that we can make the sound totally specific to our film. THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO h ttp ://www.youtube.com/watch?V=5qiwgzx6-bk MUSIC|: MUSIC| The XX – Intro is a highly recognizable yet bold and unforgettable, it is the more mournful of any music in this research presentation, which looks at the themes of this film from another perspective. Rather than addressing the violence with the film with more aggressive sounds we are in essence creating a form of Contrapuntal Sound. The synthetic sounds are acoustically desirable, providing an artificial quality to the visuals. I will use this as inspiration for exploration into Artur and Vera’s genetic modification. As for the actual tune I believe it is a little too mournful and doesn’t encapsulate the ideas and themes we are trying to raise in the sequence. We will explore the depth of sound and the use of synthetics however to see if they can help create a more layered and textured sound. THE XX - INTRO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8SEBMKwHOk MUSIC|: MUSIC| Taken from Bjork’s highly experimental album Biophilia , Nattura is a cacophony of multi layered drum beats; archaic choir song and natural undertones seen in other pieces of her work like ‘Mutual Core’. The whole song sounds like it is fighting to be heard which is overwhelming but is exactly what is needed in our opening sequence in order to reach the full effect we are aiming for. The drum beats are so fast its mind bending and completely disorientating which really helps again achieve this effect of severity and harshness. We could achieve this by using Garage B and’s in house instruments which are highly realistic and easy to use in order to create this simple yet punchy theme.Bjork’s ‘ Nattura ’ is definitely something we can use as inspiration for our backing music. M y idea is to explore the drum beats using the virtual ones on Garage Band BJÖRK - NATTURA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNlTauVVNao MUSIC|: MUSIC| Government Hooker is one of Gaga’s lesser known songs featuring rebellious anti-government lyrics and a electro beat that is fast paced but not rushed in sound. It is a great thing to look at in relation to our opening sequence as it contains allegory as well as sound that has no unique national sound therefore allowing it to work in context to a film not based specifically in one country. With its relentless synth beats Government Hooker is not what one would consider an easy listening song. It has a good pace that would match the pace of walking featured in the sequence, meaning that the shots will flow well. In term of our film it would be a good idea to play around with the synth beats in GarageBand to find a rhythm or tune that is hard and metallic almost in sound like Government Hooker. LADY GAGA – GOVERNMENT HOOKER http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNlTauVVNao SOUND IN FILM|CONCLUSION: SOUND IN FILM| CONCLUSION From the research I have done into different music, soundtrack and sounds I have decided that it would be wise to aim for something that is similar to Karen O’s : ‘Immigrant Song’ which with its rolling, crashing sounds will help to elevate the visuals. So the foundation sound we are going to look at achieving will be a fairly heavy rock song. Using my further research into sound I realised that Bjork’s ‘ Nattura ’ and its rapid almost out of control drum beats would fit with the rock song that we are hoping to create or find (using CC and Copyright Free Music found on the internet). So we will be looking for a rock song with a slight difference. Of course you have to be realistic, therefore if it lacks an aspect of any of the music I have highlighted in this research it isn’t a disaster because, provided it is suitable to the visuals; we can still use it. It is what you do with the sound not what you have. Lastly the electronic sounds, synths and childlike percussion mentioned in the ‘Hanna Soundtrack’ by the Chemical Brothers; ‘Intro’ by The XX and Lady Gaga’s ‘Government Hooker’ will all help benefit the film bringing ideas of modern influence versus the former Soviet Government’s actions and the removal of childhood in the modern age.
