Scoring and Sound Design for ‘Centrefold’
Recently, I completed composing the soundtrack and sound design for Centrefold, a short animated documentary about labiaplasty. The film illustrates the personal accounts, hopes and fears, of three women following their decisions to undergo surgery. Here’s the trailer:
During the project I familiarised myself with Camel Audio‘s excellent Alchemy synth, so you can expect to hear some evolving synth drones and sample-mangling pads in the score. Imperfect Samples‘ warm Braunschweig piano sample library also came in very handy, affording me the kind of warm, intimate piano chords that I can’t seem to get enough of lately.
It was also superb fun being able to get my hands dirty handling the sound design for the film. Plenty of fabric-rustling, cutlery-clinking, field recording shenanigans involved, including the implementation of sophisticated GLOVEBIRD™ technology.
The full film’s due for launch this summer, following its tour of film festivals.
