MEC Homewaters is a project dedicated to preserving Canada’s fresh water from coast to coast. In this short film I was tasked with creating a soundtrack that complimented MEC's brand and reflected a sense of adventure and exploration that would inspire the viewer to think about the importance of keeping the waters in our beautiful country clean. I collaborated with the creative team at Giant Ant to establish the direction of the music and handled all aspects of the audio production including:
• Original Musical Score
• Sound Design
• Voice Over Recording
• Full Service Audio Post-Production
The beginning of the soundtrack needed to give the feelings of peace and oneness with nature and then develop into a pulsing heartbeat type rhythm before ramping up to a wide open and expansive crescendo. It was important to have an earthy and natural sound throughout the video so I used a warm rhodes piano, ambient electric guitars and soft synth pads to fill out most of the sound. I also wanted to use very natural drum sounds so I used taiko drums and an acoustic guitar as percussion elements. This brought up the energy during the crescendo without losing the natural tones I was looking to retain.
