A wandering cowboy and his nervous sidekick encounter an old blind man and a manic hunter while searching for a road to Portland, and soon learn that the small shack looming over their camp may house a supernatural entity.
These are concept pieces for the soundtrack. I’m trying things out, coming up with melodies, and getting an auditory feel for the film. Music is the most impactful creator of mood in any movie, so getting it right is important.
This is a western horror piece, inspired by my longing to write something set in that time period. It follows two men: Ronan, a grim outlaw; and Clayton, his little accomplice and pack-mule.
