“Whistle” Soundtrack Out Now!

In 2002 I wrote one of my first film scores, for Duncan Jones “Whistle”. Before releasing the soundtrack I always felt that I would have to re-edit and remaster the score. After 19 years, I finally started to track down the original files, but the Pro Tools session was lost many moons ago on a hard drive somewhere in Canada. All I had left were the 8 track DTRS Tapes that were made as a back-up. With those tapes, I was able to reconstruct it, with amazing help from Thomas Körffer, who exported the stems and Alexander Klein, who re-edited and remastered the score from scratch. The result is far beyond what I would have thought possible from those original 8 track tapes. Big thanks as well to Alice Bacher for a great album cover.

Duncan described the film once as “my dry run at a feature film”, I could say the same about my involvement in the score. It is far from perfect, but it is a nice document of the beginnings of my career as a film composer.

If you’d like to watch the actual film, you can see it as a bonus feature on Duncan’s “Moon” DVD/Blue Ray.
