Orbital and Michael Kamen: Event Horizon score

Big fan of the score to Event Horizon, and would love to know a bit about the process and any insight and information about that project. Love the filtered and gated choirs etc... Cheers!

That was a great experience. working with Michael tough me a lot about scoring. about keeping it simple and going with your gut feeling . Also about getting help from other people and listening to their opinions .

we couldn't do as much as we wanted to as we were booked in to play lollapalooza festival and i had to do the programming for the live set as well.

We started by Michael getting a small orchestra together in a hall he owned in west London and he basically jammed with then , based on a few riffs he'd put down as a rough score . " you have to give theres guys some thing to read other wise they get twitchy "He whispered to me conspirationally as there were arriving. we took this session away as an alesis dat session and sampled away , creating what would end up to be the opening credits music.

the cut up choirs came from sampling a favourite score cd of mine,( no i won't tell as i didn't clear it! ) and chopping it with velocity to start time on my emu , re pitching , filtering till it became something completely different.
