"Itís a prequel to the John Carpenter [film]. Thereís definitely a reference to the Morricone [score]. One of the things Iím really having fun with is using the orchestra as a complete organism to itself. It almost expands and contracts like going from a single note expanding out to the full range of the orchestra then going back down. Thatís the motif for the thing. Itís a very tough thing to mock up and show how itís going to be. Itís sort of an experiment. Hopefully the filmmakers arenít too nervous. It should be a lot of fun."
