Temporal Tantrum (Video Soundtrack)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Background music for a fun father/daughter YouTube video editing collaboration/experiment (embedded here.) My daughter and I filmed and edited the movie, and I wrote the music, after hearing some video-game music my daughter wanted me to emulate. This music is slightly updated from the original music in the video... and is a little basic and repetitive (works better under the video) ... possibly as a collaboration with somebody offering to add vox/real guitar over it? Send me a note if you are interested in adding to this, I can send you the GarageBand file.

Here's the video, videotaped by Drakonis, scene layout and editing by Drak's daughter "Addison".

a fantastic trippy treat for the senses. music and video are both very well done and draconically creative. little dragon takes after papa dragon it seems. wonderful work to both of you and kudos to surviving (and even enjoying!) this project together. a great success!

Wow, first AND second! Dragonette really loves movie-making, especially dramatic stuff, so this was great fun for her... we got along quite nicely through this, and both learned a lot from each other... and apparently created something other people like too! Woohoo! Thank you for stopping in and leaving your thoughts! And Dragon and Dragonette (and Mrs. Dragon) are looking forward to meeting y'all in a couple weeks! :-)

Yay Paul!
I learned a LOT about syncing a soundtrack to video, and vice versa. It is a game fraught with details, right up my software-engineer-alley. My daughter is also very patient when doing this, although, I'll secretly admit she's already flinging clips a lot faster than I am in FCE, so I was getting cool tips from her on that.

many stories in here...
My daughter and I had one sort of abstract theme to present, and shot a lot of video for it... the idea was to contrast "Pastoral natural beauty" against "Fast-paced urban culture"... we had LOTS of flowers and nature video too, but when Addison took over, she preferred to make it MOSTLY the gritty city, and a lot of disorientation of time that it causes, so the focus shifted a little.. so yes, you are picking up on the final theme. I am glad you enjoyed this strange direction from us!

I am really impressed by the video editing and the effects in the film. Of course the music fits just perfectly, and I know you posted the song here, but I am really floored by the video. Are all those effects (especially the slow-mo and reverse) in the editing suite or on the camera? You and your daughter should join DVXUser.com and enter one of the film festivals there. They are in the middle of QuestFest right now, but the next one will come up this fall I think.
Very impressive,
Stephen

Hi Stephen, my video camera has some special effects built-in, but I never never use them. I *always* do sfx in the editing room (a LOT more flexibility there.) Some of the special effects were my ideas, some were my daughters, we had a lot of fun figuring out how to do some of them. None were particularly LucasFilm-amazing, but just interesting enough.

Uh oh... dvxuser.com? They have film festivals? Oooh, now THAT sounds interesting, I'll have to go look into that now! How cool would that be? Wonder if they have computer-animation categories? Thank you for the tip, I'll go do some researching! And thank you for watching and letting me know you enjoyed it all.

surprised...
and very humbled to get music compliments from you, Bob... it is funny, because I worked my behind off to get this music to have an ominous growl and bite, and in the end, thought that I just did so-so with the final piece... maybe I was just burned out, but couldn't hear it any more... it sounded OK to me, but I did like it coupled with the video. So to have found people interested in the music itself is exciting, thank you! And you know, with some Princely guitar and synthy bits, it could sound positively stunning! :-)

I'm glad you posted this, Eduard. As you already know, I think you've done a really good job here; I find your music more interesting than the original video game music. Really good work, and I hope this inspires you to try this technique with some other works.

Clark, I want to thank you personally for taking the time to ask about the original music, do the comparison, and suggest that I was able to rework it into something better. Yes, you specifically have now given me more confidence and I will be trying something like this again soon. And... I am anxiously awaiting your Clark-Scarlattification that you have promised to finish up soon! :-) Now THAT will be grand!

Very dramatic,

Well, it`s a soundtrack and good as is, but without the video it`s a little
too invariable, just listen to Hans Zimmer or John Williams... :o)

Good job Eduard!!

drakonis said 2950 days ago (May 30th, 2009)
Williams/Zimmer?
Nope, I'll never get there, but I have been taking notes, and some of my musical pieces actually were inspired by taking the movie first, then having to invent music to go along with it (like my "Andes Off!" to go with the condor video.) But this was the first time I tried to do some gritty industrial stuff. I completely agree with you that by itself, it is a little too monotonous, it needs somebody to play a lead or sing a lieder over it... that's why I posted it as a collab... know anybody, Ingo? :-)

Well...
This is brillopads...how do you get the opaque effect with the door and the young woman seen through it....It is like a double exposure effect in standard or double 8 which I learned all about, then they stopped making it,doh....Great creepy scary music...I don't think it needs anything else as a background score....praps you should have two versions,the actual score and then a piece entitled 'inspired by thge movie Temporal Tantrum'.

Like those albums you know, you buy them, cos you know like, you think they are the soundtrack albums but hey they turn out to have just 1 title track from the movie and then the rest is like Bon Jovi or Prince or some other dweeb playing stuff that was never in the FILM ! ! May I please go and lie down now and maybe watch Temporal Tantrum again............

Sigh...
I would marry your sense of humor if I could... I have been suffering little eruptions of uncontrollable giggles all day now, after reading this wickedly funny post... thank you for completing my day!

I have avoided succumbing to the hodge-podge soundtrack CDs, except for two ("Metropolis", which actually HAS dweebs like Adam Ant and Billy Squier and Pat Benatar and Queen, and "Babylon-5" which has Christopher Franke of Tangerine-Dream-fame), and I actually really enjoy those, for some reason. I have listened to other people's CDs of Hans Zimmer (Batman) and Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings, and found that after starting to listen to them, I awoke 2 days later with a terrible headache, and no memory of what happened... sort of like the time I was introduced to the dangerous drink called a "Kamikaze", but that's a different story. Dunno, those just reinforced my belief that movie soundtrack music belongs in the movie. So I am going out on a limb here, making this a stand-alone dangly. I'm glad it is brillopads for you!

As for the double-exposure door effect, that's what it was, a carefully lined-up double-exposure... I did some of those with my ancient super-8 camera too!

Maybe I could send this to the city of commerce, and see if they want to use it as a promo for this fine city? :-) It was fun to scout out the really seedy sections of town (it helps that I've lived here forever, and know all the back-alleys.)

And don't tempt my daughter, she is chomping at the bit to do full-length movies (she's working on a zombie film with friends now, and knows a manager at the local movie theater, may get it shown there during off-hours for her friends... I didn't know you could do that!)

And more Drak-Vids will be winging their way here soon! Thank you for your constant support and enthusiasm for my silliness!

Tantrumus Temporalis Maximus
I love that opening that gets us pulled right into the pot you're about to hatch. Almost a Jaws like line in the strings there for a few moments into the build. The orchestral bells work well as you've laid them into the intro and then you re-introduce them just after the one minute mark with the electric guitar. A wicked sense of anticipation or foreboding that you keep us tightly within the grip of through the use of your repeating rhythmic motif. Nice bent note on the electric too - never tried this myself in GB and it came off well.

I think that you've really carried this off terrifically and it can easily stand alone as is. (Great video too!)

Now before you throw a tantrum at the length of my post and the temporal expenditure to read it,

TTFN,
Doug

Ex_Silentio said 2948 days ago (June 1st, 2009)
Repetition is our friend
and is used here to great effect. I listened to the music first, found it to be insistent and compelling. Then I watched the vid (excellently produced), and found the music to be dark and ominous and ... um ... foreboding is the word I'm looking for. So, you took a series of fairly innocuous scenes from daily life and made them seem sinister. I admit, I don't get it, but this art thing eludes me --- I got a D in Art Appreciation. Still, very impressive. Compliments to you both. I'd love to see some more.

drakonis said 2948 days ago (June 1st, 2009)
Foreboding...
No "D" here, that is precisely what I was trying to get across with the music. As for Addison's choice and timing of scenes, we started with a theme/idea (making a movie that contrasted the beauty of nature against the grittiness of urban grunge), but as the editing progressed, more of nature (and thus the contrast) was removed, and the theme got altered a bit, more toward a feeling of just "being disoriented by urban life." Not a strong or direct message, it was mostly just a time to do a father/daughter project together from start-to-finish, play with special effects, and do some soundtrack alignment. With your interest in this and seeing more, I will definitely enlist her help in doing more twisty movies, maybe the "director" will be more strict about sticking to a less-abstract plot next time (smirk.) I'm also glad to know that the music stood well on its own for you. Thank you for listening and offering your thoughts, very helpful!

The Heroes Assemble
...love the quiet tension that pulses through the piece, like a band of heroes beginning to finally assemble to begin a long and difficult battle against an adversary that has pushed them too far and too long.

It works quite well on its own. Now, the video actually makes the piece much more ominous and foreboding - like something cosmic and terrible is gathering where we know not or suspect less.

Fascinating, how the audio alone suggests the gathering of heroic forces, but the video suggests the opposite. Very, very well done.
