Music Monday - Bloom Intro (Rough Electric Version)
You know, for someone who spends most of their time making music, I realized I don’t post a lot of it on Tumblr. So I’m gonna start throwing a little something up on Mondays. Maybe some behind-the-scenes stuff, early sketches, or something from a band that I’m producing and think you should know about.
I’ll start with an early track I just found from the Bloom score. This comes from the Overture, before it was filled out (You can hear the final “Brothers In A One Hat Town” piece here).
The way I did this project involved much more of a “building” process than a traditional score where you write it, record it and release it. I recorded hundreds of different tracks with the key instrumentalists and then began building and editing. As things came together, I would send ideas to Rian and we would talk about the direction before adding new elements.
Often, I would get takes of a few different instruments playing the lead melody lines so I had options for different versions as the entire track developed. In this rough track, you get to hear Jonny Rodgers’ great electric guitar work in a much more stripped down way.
