Westworld scoring competition

Square

So while I was browsing for some new sounds to play around with, I noticed that Spitfire Audio was holding a competition – score a scene from the new season of Westworld, and potentially win the complete collection of Spitfire Audio sounds.

This is my first attempt at scoring to film, and it was fun to explore this area. I utilised a rhythmic and harmonic ostinato to help build tension, rising in pitch and tempo as we build to the climax. I tried a few different things at the end, including the final bars of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony – it was close, but not quite what I was trying for, so I utilised his instrumentation and voicing for the final chord, and adjusted it so that it fit thematically with what I had been building towards.
