Skylands of VonMorse

This is a short stop-motion animated film by Kurt Paulsen that I created custom music and sound design for in 2003.  I used my fragment-based compositional method to create all of the music in the film. The source material from which I extracted the fragments used to create this music was provided to me by the director. This material consisted of a number of preliminary cues, which had been composed by someone else, but which were never used in the final film. This particular cue is from the opening scene. I've left the voices and sound effects in so that you can hear how they work together. There is almost no dialogue in the scene - mostly grunts and other nonverbal fight sound vocalizations.
