Composing for Asta Nielsen is Dead:
This has been an interesting and challenging brief as I knew that the piece did not warrant guitar based music. Instead I have experimented with using unfamiliar instruments, in particular string and brass sections, taking influence from composers such as Olivier Messiaen, Gyorgi Ligeti and Jonny Greenwood to evoke a surreal and foreboding setting.
It has been a refreshing experience to allow the sequencing of the theatre piece to determine the musical sequence, and this has provided moments of stark contrast between the sublime and the ridiculous which I may not have intentionally planned otherwise but which have in fact assisted in reinforcing the dynamics of the artistic concept.
