The Writer Soundtrack - 01 Opening Titles by Tim Heath published on 2013/02/27 17:56:38 +0000 Directed by Christopher Lombard & Djonny Chen http://vimeo.com/58297717 When a writer struggles to write the death scene of his leading character, his greatest creation helps him let go… When I first watched an early edit of "The Writer" one main component I noticed was the space that surrounded the story. The first scene follows Christian as he makes a cup of tea and then drinks it. Christopher Lombard (director) was clearly comfortable with highlighting the space around the story and I wanted the score to reflect that quality. I used a repeating note on the piano throughout the score which reflects the blinking cursor on Christian's computer screen - persistent, unrelenting - but as Christian finally completes the story the tone changes (the pizz. cello takes over from piano) to suggest has come to terms with the story and let it rest.
