In this project, I set out to create a film score for an imagined film. First, I created the plot of the story: Three friends (Liv, Asha, and Deni) experience grief in different ways and attempt to seek closure for the death of a friend (Nova), with the help of a benevolent forest entity providing guidance along the way. The process of grieving presents through physical manifestations: a journey through a fantastical forest with different elements to represent the ways in which each character processes grief. Using the narrative elements, I generated musical material for 10 distinct plot points, starting with themes for each character and element to be woven throughout the project. I sketched out the score by hand and orchestrated on Sibelius. To complete the project, I hired performers to play the piece and commissioned art to accompany each piece.
