I had the pleasure of working with Lucas Wade, an Industrial Designer at M3 Design on an original score for their recent promotional video.
I was thinking of digital yet organic, energetic yet precise. So, to give that digital yet organic sound, the instrumentation is almost entirely acoustic orchestral instruments, which have been treated by delay or distortion; using familiar materials in unfamiliar and new ways. To bring the energy and precision, I feature polyrhythms (2 beats against 3 beats and 4 against 3) and a brisk tempo, resulting in a quite metric and rigid, yet continuous stream of sounds. As a couple bonus easter eggs, the main melodic motive heard in the piano is a Major Third, which is abbreviated M3 in music theory. Also, the meter is 3 beats per measure…3/M…Nerdy!!
