Officeworks – Xmas

Project Description

Composer: Michael Edwards

Playful composition and orchestration in the style of Pixar or Disney.  Tightly following the picture and cuts to define the story in a clear and emotive way.  I kept the composition mostly in the lydian mode, in keeping with the wondrous happy xmas vibe.  The main compositional challenge was creating two climaxes one after the other – the photo reveal and the end hug.  Both had to be dynamically strong, so I modulated the key of the final climax to keep it fresh and building.
