Session Name: Creating a Horror Score on a Shoestring Budget
Speaker(s): Spencer Bambrick, Gina Zdanowicz
Company Name(s): Serial Lab Studios, Serial Lab Studios
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: "Creating a Horror Score on a Shoestring Budget" will cover creative composition, orchestration, and decision-making within the confines of an extremely tight budget. These scenarios are commonplace, but through a lot of experimentation and planning these projects can yield new and distinctive soundtracks. Through audio examples and score excerpts, this talk will offer numerous examples of aleatoric notation and extended techniques that can be used to highlight the strengths of smaller ensembles and maximize their use in the horror genre. This talk will also cover logistics, planning, and communication with developers under budgetary constraints.
