Second attempt at spontaneous composition for screen with Häxen (up to Part 2, 1922, Benjamin Christensen), attempt to simplify “flow”, improve reactivity, balance and tempo, search for expression. The improvisation process followed approximately Method 1: “look first at the film in its entirety first, with or without sound (preferable, as it doesn’t then imply simple musical mimicking) then improvise and talk about the outcome.” (Durant, Yati. 2015. Dramatic Comprehensibility in Improvised Music to Film. [Paper]. IMHSD Conference, Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex) Setup included Laptop running Ableton Live, Korg Kaoss pad and Kaosillator through ZVex, Korg MS-20 and SQ1, Apple iPad running Samplr, Elektron Machinedrum and two trumpets (through effects).
