Finding the Composer
I've spoken to two composers - we'll call them "A" and "B". I liked them both over the phone. There's something about "A" that I think will make communication easier. Also, he has a bit more of a rock and pop feel, which is more what I believe I want for the film. And he can write a real "song" if I need one. Then again, there is something about "B" that is compelling, almost haunting. He is a composer of a different ilk. While he does film scores, he also does professional avant guard composition. But I'm not sure I can communicate as well with him. Or that he can produce a soundtrack that isn't simply avant guard or tonal sounds. Tough choice. I'm going with "A".
