Here's a work-in-progess sample of the soundtrack for DEAD WHEN I GOT HERE.  The music was put together by Mark Pilkington of Strange Attractor publishing fame and many musical enterprises too numerous to mention.  


We've spoken about composer Elianne Radigue, Tibetan singing bowls, silence, expanse and non-music. 


What interests me a lot about making this film is something that the poet Lorca described as poetic fact.  Something that isn't metaphorical.  Something that isn't symbolic or standing in for something else.  It just is.  I felt this when filming the mental patients in the desert.  They seemed to exist purely in their own worlds.  Captain Beefheart was also interested in this idea and if you know his music - especially the more out there stuff, these ideas make sense.  Apart from these notions, I also feel that music shouldn't be so much heard in a film as felt.  For this reason, words always fail when desribing music.  


Anyway, this is Mark's first attempt at a soundtrack.  More to follow.

    I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!
