Timebox | Short | Daelan Wood, Dir. [WATCH THE FILM ON CBC ONLINE]
Two backwoods hicks discover a time machine in the woods. Instead of betting on sports or gaming the stock market, they use it to hunt each other. Repeatedly. The friends’ twisted game soon spirals out of control.
As a challenge, I decided to score this experimental mind-bender using only found-sound. I spent days recording power tools, using fishing wire to resonate the strings on my piano, and a violin bow to play pieces of metal, among other experiments. The results were processed and the resulting score composed of these eerie, haunting, and sometimes ugly sounds.
