Hey guy, Alex here :)
When I started working on the soundtrack of White Heaven, I've had to take some important choices. Anna's soundtrack has been beloved by many of you, and I think it's because it describes the inner feeling of the character instead of blatantly give a sound to what's on screen, and I wanted to dig deeper into that.
First of all, I decided that I wanted real players with real instruments: a machine will never be able to deliver what a person can.
Then I decided to keep the music intimate and personal, having an arc quintet and a classic guitar.
To get all this goodness together, you cannot risk a thing and you have to rely on professionals: that's why I contacted Nimrod Studios to help me.
Jonathan has orchestrated my score, and Marc has handled the recordings in World famous Abbey Roads Studio 2.
They totally got the direction I wanted to give to the music and helped me immensely in this effort. I think that White Heaven is the best music I have ever written. I don't say this too often: I was not very happy with Chantry's "It's on Old Story", so much that I decided to retire it.
Here are some photos and videos from the recording sessions:
