So there are two aspects to this job. One aspect we are really, really good at (the one about making music and putting it to the moving picture) and the other, well……. could use some work (self promotion).
So it is with an emboldened sense of self worth that I present, FINALLY, a composer’s reel.
It’s like a resume for us creative types.
We chose to use two compositions to show diversity but not to overwhelm. A longer reel is given to future/past people we wish to work with/again. This longer version has multiple scenes with our music as it appears in the film itself.
In good conscience, I can’t add these to this post as some are actually the climax of the film. A film I’d hope you want to see.
Big love goes to Nick Taylor, an amazing director, editor, songwriter and brother for this edit.
Spring & Arnaud get a run (in Ontario) on TVO!!!!!! You can find the broadcast times HERE
A wonderful and beautiful meditation on Life, Death, and Art…..we couldn’t be happier it is seeing the light of day.
We’ve all but exhausted any music that we could possibly post here from this wonderful film….but what the hell…..here’s some more!!!!
And then there’s this…….
With a new trailer and some exciting upcoming release dates!!!!
And again…..some more music from this wonderful and terrifying and beautiful road film!!!
This one is just the string part from the tragic end cue.I wanted you to hear this arrangement Ohad composed. It’s beautiful, and might get lost in the full-on pummeling that happens in the film’s climax.
This one actually is supposed to represent the feedback one hears inside his own head!! I hear this sound all the time. Perhaps I should …ahem…’turn down’!!
Again THANKS for listening!
Justin and Ohad
Happy New Year! Our warmest wishes for a productive, safe and exciting 2014!!
We here at Telepathic had a fabulous 2013 and if everything falls into place we’ll have a busy remainder of the winter ( given the frosty weather we’ve had already, that’ll be fine by us!!!).
Thank you for following us this year, and for your listening pleasure… some audio highlights from the films we worked on…..
Road to Paloma:
Don’t get Killed in Alaska:
Spring & Arnaud:
Also…..Today…..I (Justin) decided to join the ramshackle internet society known as ‘sound cloud’. I chose to do it because I wanted a platform that I could put the more esoteric, humble, personal and unreleased music that I’ve done with bands, at home and of course with films. You can find me HERE:
I (Justin) have been on about this film since we finished it. The reason, I TRULY love the film and the work we did, I think, is some of our best!
If you’re in Toronto, we’d love to see you at one of the screenings S&A have a the the Bloor Hot Docs theater. Nov 1st , 2nd, 3rd and 5th!!!!!
That said, We made A LOT of music for this film and it’s AMAZING I haven’t posted EVERYTHING!!!! Here are a few compositions I’d like you to hear……
Hope to see you at the screenings!!!
And as always, thanks for listening.
XO -Justin & Ohad.
As some projects end and others start, you find yourself dusting off some old ‘Ones and Zeros’ from thee computer machine and often find stuff you’d LOVE to share. So here is some of our favorite things just hanging out in the either.
First off, The Internet went and dug up something from our past!! Well, not thee INTERNET per se, but someone by the name Christopher Batemen uploaded this little gem to a CBC affiliated web page called ‘Weird Canada’. A friend of his by the name..ahem..’BestFriendForLifePhil’ stumbled across one of Do Make Say Think‘s hand made early cassette demos at a local Salvation Army. I remember making these. In 1995 we had no designs on being a band. We just made single cassette runs and handed ’em out at shows. Seeing this blew my mind!!! Have a listen HERE
The next composition I’d love to share has a ‘Electronic Dance’ element. This unreleased track is an experiment in a genre of music that we have great love for. We wanted to give it a cinematic storyline, so we added a spooky element in the mix to give it a ‘late night in the wrong part of town’ feel. Perhaps there’s a big, scary disco record waiting for us to write….in the meantime…. enjoy this song we will simply entitle ‘OF..”
And How about we ‘Waltz’ outta here…. Well not exactly ‘waltz’ as this particular composition doesn’t fit into a standard structure of one. We just called it that when we were writing it for this amazing upcoming documentary we scored called ‘Semi-Sweet: Life in Chocolate’. It’s placement in the movie is thought provoking and playful. This fantastic documentary will see a release soon and will update as soon as we hear about it. Until then….
And heck, If you want to hear a REAL waltz….. Here is part of a score Ohad did for the film ‘Daydream Nation’ Called ‘Town Waltz’. Ohad’s score for Daydream is Epic, Masterful, and Moving. We’ll add some more teasers in upcoming posts.
As Always, Thanks for listening.
Telepathic Out Takes, Ohad Benchetrit & Justin Small
