"We didnít want to intrude on the dialogue or the dynamic of the film. Even thematically itís quite simple. We let the film just play and just supplement emotionally what is going on. Thereís a father-daughter story and that needed some musical theme. Gus, played by Clint Eastwood, is losing his sight and his career is going, yet he has this innate love of the game, which carries him through. That purity was another element. Actually, that was the first thing I thought of when working on the theme. That sort of becomes a thematic element throughout the film. Thereís no electronics. Thereís one drone for a flashback but that was created with Buck [Sanders]. Other than that, compared to many other scores, itís really simple. Itís a very small, solo-istic ensemble. There is an orchestra, too, especially in the latter part of the film, but itís really more of an intimate type of score."
