Work on And Then I Woke Up | When Sound Becomes Music
Sound was particularly important on And Then I Woke Up not only in and of itself as in most productions, but because it uniquely formed the basis for what would become the sound score for the movie.
After their experience on One Day in January, Chris and composer Martin Bayless decided to use music as minimally as possible, opting instead for kind of ‘musicalizing’ the ambient sounds in the movie itself.
Except for some obvious places where more traditional music was needed, many of the sounds that were re-sampled and electronically processed as musical underscore for And Then I Woke Up were actually recorded by Mike. But because they were frequently stretched in time and formed into musical pitches, the potential to do that depended wholly on Mike’s ability to do deliver exceptionally pristine recordings.
