Straight from prison, a train robber, mercenary, and Korean cowboy meet in the desert to claim a buried fortune. A snag in their plan fuels simmering racism, igniting a chain reaction of paranoia, violence, and ill-drawn conclusions.
This score marks a first for Ross and I, we got to sit down together in person and really dig into the creative process. The result is our proudest collaboration yet.
The characters twisted this music. We started with a desire for minimalism, the music needed to breathe from the arid landscape. But our character's fought and straight out robbed to achieve dominance.
They each have strong thematic moments, Joe is felt throughout as a strange wailing instrument that's a cross between a whistle and an electric guitar. Gus' dark, brooding mastermind is reflected in low threatening swells in the bass. And Dan - Dan is everywhere and nowhere, a presence that borrows from everything until he has it all...
We hope you enjoy the result, be on the look out for where/how you can catch this amazing short.
