featuring the score for the award-winning animation of the same name, this gorgeous short-film soundtrack comes with a 9-minute electronic rework on the B-side – broderick’s first delve into the world of techno.
The first sound heard on the score is a piano playing a waltz figure, and the sound is noticeably lo-fi, but this isn’t just some modern digital trickery. This piano was recorded on a wire recorder, a recording technology that predates magnetic tape and has been virtually forgotten about. In the process of recording the score, many different technologies were experimented with. A variety of technologies from different eras were used to create a score that both sounds like it’s from several different time periods and from no specific time at all. none of the original parts were re-used for the b-side.
