Title: Orchestrating the wasteland: sample library engineering as an integral process of realising the music for Wastelander Panda
Author: Larkin, Christopher James
Issue Date: 2015
School/Discipline: Elder Conservatorium of Music
Abstract: Film and multimedia score composers use sample libraries for the digital realisation of musical ideas. This study will investigate the process of engineering custom-made samples to assist the film scoring process. This will be done with insight into the history of the sampler, examples of composers engineering samples to score certain films, and finally this composer’s own process of creating samples for the composition of the scores for the mini-series: Wastelander Panda. Sample library engineering will be discussed as a means of breaking away from the limits of commercial libraries, tailoring timbre and instrumentation for the narrative, and finally developing concepts and timbral themes for the scores.
