Composer Needed for New Indie Horror CTRL

Screen Shot 2016-11-11 at 10.46.31

Do you want to kick start or develop your career composing for film? The people behind indie film CTRL are on the lookout for a composer or group of composers to provide an electronic soundtrack for a 90-minute sci-fi thriller. The first edit is done and the film is scheduled for completion in early 2017 when they plan to submit to film festivals internationally. Everyone involved in the project works professionally in their field so production values are high. For more information see director-editor Harry Lindley’s website and showreel and the CTRL site.

BRIEF: Electronic music with Aphex Twin: ‘Selected Ambient Works Vol 2’ and ‘Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2’ EP as reference. Analogue instruments digitally processed with an emphasis on percussion over melody. Potential use of drones. Tone-wise, they are looking for a score that is unnerving and uncanny.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter with examples of your work to in the first instance. Please note that this is an unpaid position – none of the production team have received a fee on this project. However, if we make money you receive deferred fees and a percentage of our back-end profit.
