Heye ~ Benjamin Emory Larson



"Heye" ~ Benjamin Emory Larson

I wrote this piece specifically for The Eyes of March, so from the beginning my plan was to build it around a vocalist saying the word "eye." Once I had the vocal sound I wanted, it sounded to me like an alien saying "hi," so that's where the title came from. 
I rarely get to write music like this for fun, so it quickly devolved into a parade of techniques that I never get to use in commercial film scores: huge distortion, bassoon parts, driving strings, melodies, fast moving harmonies. Weird aliens saying "hi" over and over. You know, the usual. 
In any case…heye, and thanks for listening.
