My interest in scoring films is a typical composer's perspective: i.e.
I am not so interested in the craft of synchronicity and direct mimesis
between music and picture, rather I'm interested in the effect of
counterpoint and simultaneous unfolding of events in the two
media - creating a new poetic form in their combination. I think
what I do is indeed 'scoring' a film as opposed to making a soundtrack.
Perhaps that sounds old-fashioned, but I think in the modern
interest in creating live music to both archive and contemporary
silent films there is a really profound interrogation of the value and
function (both in social and artistic terms) of the music to picture
