Cohen Remembers

At the recent Australian Discworld Convention “Nullus Anxietas”, I met Daniel Knight, the director of Troll Bridge. We got chatting about soundtracks and he mentioned a scene in the film where Cohen is talking about how things are not the same as they used to be. So I was inspired to write some music for to what I imagined the scene to be.

It is “Cohen Remembers“. Michaela Lila Bos recorded the cello for me once again; what a legend.

I’m pretty sure the professional composer that they get to do the music for the film will do a much better job, but it was fun to do my own take.

In summary, it is music for a scene in a movie that I haven’t seen, based on a story I haven’t read.

I have read about Cohen in several books though.


Nullus Anxietas IV

I went to my first ever Discworld Convention in Melbourne. I wrote some music in honour of it. It is called Nullus Anxietas (Audio).

It was a whole lot of fun. I had no idea what to expect. Everyone was really friendly and appreciated a good punderstorm, as all sophisticated people do. I met lots of interesting people.

I did not expect to:

  • be involved in 3 acts of the XXXX Factor talent show.
  • be improvising music on stage while banging a box with a stick and playing dodgy Kazoo won in a strange game of pass the parcel the previous evening.
  • be playing my tin whistle in public with an actual musician while people Morris’d.
  • be killed by a cute little 8 year old girl, who was a werewolf…

Now, I need some coffee….
