A Day In May – writing a “non-orchestral” film score

Having spent the last year or so delving deeper into the realms of synthesis and electronic music, it felt almost impossible not to move away from the classic orchestral scores for Monkey Dribble Films’ latest feature, A Day in May (currently in post production). Of course, it would take a great deal of work to get me to score a movie without any string parts at all, so I present to you a not-so-unfamiliar fusion of genres. For decades, electronic music has heavily incorporated orchestral sections of all sizes into their studio mixes. The difference here is that I work primarily on the acoustic and instrumental side of things, and the “electronica” is then added to the mix later on, rather than the other way around.
