Composer "B" is a godsend - Raz Mesinai

His name is Raz Mesinai. I am thrilled that Raz will be doing the score for the film. He and I share a host of ideas for creating sounds out of ordinary things. As a basis for scenes involving water, we will make tones from large glasses filled with water. To connect to the earth, we will use rhythms and native american sounds. To capture the churning of the industry night and day, we will pulsate. And we will go to acoustic instruments to depict the positive connection between nature and people. It will be ecclectic for sure, but it will also unify the film into a solid work. I am charged up!

Composer "A" - bad idea

After two weeks of negotiating and finalizing a contract with composer "A", he has informed me that he won't be available for several MONTHS. But I need a rough score in 6 weeks. I wish he had disclosed this earlier in our negotiations, saving both time and legal expense. I'm going to call composer "B" - instinct says it is all for the better.
